It’s been fourteen months since Dylan’s
brother, Simon, died. Dylan hasn’t been home since. Time

realize that life is still worth living. He wishes it were

having Simon reject him would be even worse.

heart-warming story about finding love again. Dakota Flint
pens a story rich in heart-felt emotion. The pain and loss
Dylan and Simon feel is tangible as is the happiness they
eventually find. “Seeing You” is a beautiful, sensual, and
angst-filled love story.
Judas Steer by Kiernan Kelly
Granger Blue is driving a herd to
Oregon Territory. He’s running from his past after a bitter
parting from his former lover Sinopa. Things change when
Granger meets young Billy Bower. Granger takes Billy under
his wing and soon the men are sharing more than a tent at
night. Sinopa is watching though, and he is hell-bent on
Granger and Sinpoa‘s story is not a cut
and dry, good guy vs. bad guy story. I had mixed emotions
about Sinopa. And while Granger and Billy find something
special in each other’s arms, it felt a bit superficial.
“Judas Steer” is a good story with a genuine Old West feel.
