Ian and Bull Westerfield have spent years loving each other in all the ways the law said they shouldn’t. When they come across a drifter looking for work, the brothers invite the stranger into their home, and eventually, to their bed.

Axel Bennett was looking for work, not a home. When an accident leaves him in the hands of the Westerfield brothers, they offer him both. Envious of the bond the brothers’ share, Axel agrees to stay the winter.

Their love will be put to the test—a piece of land or the safety of each other?

Excerpt

Review

This is a story of a unique brand of love,  the love of a brother for a brother , add in a drifter looking for a safe place to work for the winter, a small town set to run the brothers out. We can’t forget the explosive chemistry between Ian and Bull, then when Axel enters. WOW. I will admit this is a topic they may not be for everyone, but this is a great story. The story is short and doesn’t fully explain some of the topics it brings up. It tells of  Ian and Bull and what a  hard life they have had, the love they have for each other. Then Axel comes into the picture. Ian want’s Axel, Bull wants Axel and Axel he wants the brothers. Carol Lynne does a excellent job of bring tenderness and passion to the story. Their chemistry is explosive.

They are cowboys who live in a small town.A town that has found out about the brothers and want to run them out. The problem, Westerfields have lived on the land since Chatham County was founded and Bull doesn’t want to leave.  But  Ian hates having to hide his love of Bull. He hates what his love for his brothers cost them. He has an unsatisfiable sexual appetite.  When Ian and Bull head home from town they run into Axel.  Axel has a unfortunate accident that leaves him in the hands of the Westerfields. Axel, He wants to be in their relationship but doesn’t want to hurt the brothers. As Axel feels frustrated at his lack of involvement with the brothers relationship and tension grows.  Will they realize how much they can offer each other , before everything is taken away. That they fit together, all three and can fit so perfectly if they will just give each other a chance.

I think this is a excellent story of love, forgiveness and what can happen if you open yourself to love.  Ian, Bull and Axel all need healing and though it starts as a sexual relationship to satisfy Ian, it quickly becomes much more. As they fight against prejudice of a small town and have to see if their love is strong enough to keep them together.
