The Shepherd and the Solicitor
The solitude of a hermit is invaded by love.
When Daniel Pierce’s lover is murdered by a hate-filled mob, he retreats from society to the wilds of the north. Tending sheep brings him a measure of peace, until the day Gregory Tobin erupts into his life. Sent by his firm to confirm either the existence or death of the Pierce family heir, Tobin is at first uncertain of the identity of the man he’s tracked down. Gruff, shaggy hermit Jacob Bennett bears little resemblance to the photographs of a younger Pierce.
Thrown together on the isolated farm in the flurry of lambing season, Tobin keeps postponing his return to civilization. He wants the recalcitrant heir to return with him, but he’s also falling for the man revealed layer by layer. Ultimately Jacob Bennett must decide if he can overcome the terrors of his past and meld an identity that contains both Pierce and Bennett—a man capable of loving again.
Warning: Many sexy encounters on a sheep farm—NO, not like THAT!—between two adult males with temperaments as different as night and day.
