LGBTQ, Western Romance
Brighton McKenzie inherited one of the last pieces of farmland in suburban Baltimore. It has been in his family since Maryland was a colony, though it has lain fallow for years. Selling it for development would be easy, but Brighton wants to honor his grandfather's wishes and work it again. Unfortunately, an accident left him relying on a cane, so he'll need help. Tanner Houghton used to work on a ranch in Montana until a vengeful ex got him fired because of his sexuality. He comes to Maryland at the invitation of his cousin and is thrilled to have a chance to get back to the kind of work he loves.
Brighton is instantly drawn to the intensely handsome and huge Tanner—he's everything Brighton likes in a man, though he holds back because Tanner is an employee, and because he can't understand why a man as virile as Tanner would be interested in him. But that isn't the worst of their problems. They have to face the machinations of Brighton's aunt, Tanner's ex suddenly wanting him back, and the need to find a way to make the farm financially viable before they lose Brighton's family legacy.

A surprise inheritance leads to love in Andrew Gray's EASTERN COWBOY.
Tanner Houghton is looking for a fresh start. When he shows up at Brighton McKenzie's farm, both men get what they want; the eventual sparks flying between them are simply an added bonus.
First and foremost, this is a story about a man who faces physical challenges with a bum leg and gets a new lease on life. The storyline is rich with details, providing a solid foundation. It just so happens that the two main characters, who are male, make this a m/m love story. It's much more developed than the typical romance; much of the detail focuses on feelings to show how the characters build a relationship.
The physical aspects of the story were well written, providing just the right amount of heat. If anything, I would've liked more depth and intensity in the storyline because it's obvious that the author is very skilled. This is an author who would do well with a more complex storyline.
