Blurb: There’s more than one way to imprison a man.
Daniel Edmonds spent almost a decade in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. After finally having his name cleared, he’d hoped things would get easier, but people still look at him like he’s a murderer, and talk about him in hushed voices as he walks past. When he discovers that he really can’t go home again, he has to decide what to do to survive.
Adapting to the outside world isn’t easy, especially for a man alone.
Fear of temptation to fall back into his old ways scares Daniel into near-seclusion. When given the chance to help his brother Duke and brother-in-law, Frankie, Daniel agrees. His pride takes a hit when he has to let them buy his plane ticket to Montana, but Daniel’s learning that family is more important than anything else.
That’s what he tells himself, although maybe he’s running, just a little, and not just trying to help Duke and Frankie. One thing is for certain—he doesn’t mind spending a little time on the Mossy Glenn Ranch.
Hector Gallegos works hard and keeps his head down. He hasn’t been interested in more than the occasional hook-up here and there. He’s growing tired of that lifestyle, though, after seeing so many happy couples—and one treble—at the Mossy Glenn.
When Dan Edmonds shows up to visit his brother, Duke, Hector can’t help but notice the man. Dan’s scarred face doesn’t dim the attraction that immediately flares between him and Hector.
Lust comes easy, but building something that will last is a challenge.
Review: At the age of eighteen, Daniel Edmunds went to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Ten years later, he finds himself exonerated and a free man. He is scared, scarred, and he doesn’t know what to do now with his newfound freedom. He needs a place to live, a job and a life free of drugs. His fears and insecurities have kept him from staying in contact with his brother, Duke, so when a mentor advises Daniel to give Duke a call, he discovers his brother has been injured. And Frankie, Duke’s husband, is more than grateful to have Daniel come and help care for him.
Hector Gallegos, a ranch hand at the Mossy Glenn, is tired of hook-ups. It’s been eight months since his last, and, frankly, he’s not interested in one-and-dones anymore. He’s watched his friends at the ranch each find someone to love, and that’s exactly what he wants now, too. After seeing a photo of Daniel, Hector can’t seem to get him out of his mind. When Hector makes the trip to the airport to pick Daniel up, he can’t quite put his finger on why, but he’s incredibly attracted to the man. He also discovers he needs to be careful with Daniel’s feelings.
The Mossy Glenn Ranch is home to a multitude of characters, some of whom stick their noses in where they don’t belong. When Daniel’s past comes to light, Hector’s reaction causes a ripple between them. There’s also something strange going on up at the Mossy Glenn’s line shacks and when the ranch hands go to investigate, they find themselves in danger…and one of their own’s life is at stake.
Bailey Bradford gives readers so many different characters to love at the Mossy Glenn Ranch. The storyline is part of a continuing mystery, and Hay and Heartbreak almost brings it to a conclusion. This book really brought out Daniel’s character, his shyness and fears, and Hector’s self-confidence and his love for Daniel, which will last forever.
