Alex Dominguez is a Nevada State Trooper, lowest on the rung and feeling like he is going nowhere. He was born and raised in foster homes from an early age. His fondest memory of his father was when his dad took him hunting on Mount Moriah in the Wheeler and Snake ranges. He has been assigned by the governor of the state to keep an eye on a visitor coming over from Scotland, and report on his behavior and to keep him out of trouble, and to keep it a secret from Rory.
Rory Drummond is laird of the castle in Scotland, spoiled and carefree. He has gotten into trouble more than once, and his brother, an aspiring politician, wants his brother to be kept under wraps and wants to know if there are any problems that could cause a scandal for him. Rory on the other hand, is interested in having a good time.
Rory meets Alex at the airport and drives him out to the Long Trails Ranch; a ranch that specializes in big game hunts for wealthy hunters. They immediately hit it off. On the drive to the ranch, they discover there is an immediate mutual attraction, and by the time they get to the ranch, they have indulged in each other. The hunting and sex begin, and keep going throughout the stay, until the very end of the trip, when Alex reveals his deeply held secret to Rory. Rory is infuriated, and leaves in a huff, supposing never to see Alex again.
That isn’t the end of the story, but I am not giving the ending away. Just suffice it to say, it is another Erin O’Quinn masterpiece, and the roller coaster of these two men’s relationship lasts until the very last chapter. The characters are well developed; you know who they are and what they are feeling all the way through the book. She is wonderful at describing scenery, and so you can feel the snow and cold, and just picture the majesty of the hunting grounds. You also get the feeling of being on the hunt with the party and their support men. It is a great read, and a wonderful story. I loved it
