A well put together short story. Closeted rodeo cowboy Wyatt Knott only needed to stay on his bucking bronco for eight minutes. Pick up men Cam Chester pulled Wyatt from his horse when the man is disqualified. Cam is out of the closet and hated on the circuit. He and Wyatt face wild horses and an even wilder man set on killing the couple. Both Cam and Wyatt are hot, likable cowboys but what cowboy isn't?

This short story, less than 50 pages, is quite interesting since it mixes some very good sex scenes with a quite interesting plot. Actually the erotic part has a lion share on the story, but sometime this is not a bad thing.

Cam "The Professor" Chester, is a former bull-rider, now pick-up man in the rodeo circuit by day and country song-writer by night. He is gay and out, and this leads to him a bit of trouble here and there. Cam is not a simple man, he is a lonesome rider type, he likes his lif

The best thing I can say about this is that it's short. And that I'm done with it. Even so, it seemed to take waaaaaaaay too long to read. The prose was too purple for my liking, not to mention so convoluted I frequently had trouble understanding what was happening or whose head I was in. The experience was uncomfortably similar to reading a (supposedly "polished") rough draft of a student paper.

And then there's the "mystery" which was equally convoluted and ridiculous. If I hadn't been reading

This story is fairly short but for some reason doesn't feel like it. There's no 'fat' here. It's concise, intensely hot and very well written with characters that are very likeable, without being sappy, and a story line that is well paced. Enjoyed it a lot. Would LOVE to read a sequel.

I've come a long way, baby. (And, if you remember the ad campaign that line is from, you're probably close to my age...)

I've been writing both smart-assed and not-so-smart-assed erotic romance and erotica since 1995. My stories often have a spanking component or sub/dom elements, but the non-sex portions of the plots are (at times) inspired by doings in my real life.

In the past, I've worked at a t
