Moor Love is a charming and sexy little story that really grabs your heart. Sexy men, romantic setting, improbable romance and passionate sex.

The length of the book is definitely a case of wishing for more but being happy and satisfied, with the delicious taste that you got.

I'm a sucker for books set in the British isles and Carol Lynne uses the setting nicely. Quaint farm, picturesque scenery, sheep in the fields, chilly nights, it's the type of place that breeds love.

The main characters are b

A very sweet lovely story, I felt so sorry for Jon, I wonder if in real life men like Jon exist, it would be a real shame to be that lonely for so long. Loneliness is something that I detest, and my heart broke for him, He was such a charming character.
Beautiful story and I love the ending.

Caleb y Jon!!! Los amé!!! Me encanta la forma de narrar que tiene Carol y cómo desarrolla a sus personajes. La forma en que Caleb logra sacar a Jon de su cáscara y que este comience a sentir de nuevo es de lo más tierna y romántica. Y Champ es un punto extra a la historia. Muy recomendable

I’ve heard lots of great things about Carol Lynne’s books, but up until now I haven’t read anything by her. After reading this lovely novella, set in my native Yorkshire, I shall certainly be picking up more of her books.

The book begins with US agriculture student Caleb arriving for a year’s placement at a sheep farm on the North Yorkshire Moors. He’s surprised to find that the farmer he is to work with is a very attractive man in his mid-thirties. Jon is mute and has reluctantly arranged for Ca

Caleb is studying agriculture in college and gets the chance to do a work term of a year on a sheep farm in Yorkshire. Jon is mute and has aggravated and old injury and does not WANT help but accepts it grudgingly. Eventually Caleb and Jon admit their attraction and start a relationship. Caleb’s mother comes and stirs things up a bit but it all works out in the end. I find many Carol Lynn books have insta-love which doesn’t work for me but this is not the case here, the relationship develops ove ...more

I really liked this story about a young American student who goes to the UK to gain some work experience and an older sheep farmer who has been mute since the accident that killed his father. Jon thought he'd never find love and hides behind his gruff exterior. Soon Caleb decides he needs to draw him out of his shell, back into the land of the living.

The relationship between the two men isn't easy as they overcome the fact that Jon doesn't speak. Emotions run deep when they realize they're in lo
Oooooooo, I wish I could rate this one higher. It's a sweet story, for the most part. Butbutbut --

1. It lapses waaaaay too far over into sappy territory at the climax
2. There is very little conflict of any sort throughout
3. It's short, with little character development
4. The editing is atrocious -- really really bad punctuation, and obvious errors like "pass-times" instead of pastimes, "passed" instead of past, and "immanent" instead of imminent. Oh, the heartbreak of being stuck with an illiter

Too short for my liking... but otherwise quite good.
I generally lower my expectations for short stories. However, Moor Love was a surprisingly good story. The characters are well developed and I quickly cared about Caleb and Jon. This really could have been a much longer book. When it was over, I wanted more.

Note: I added it my "gay cowboy" bookshelf despite the fact it was set in the UK. Not really sure what one calls a sheep (rancher/farmer?) in the UK so it is close enough.

I really enjoyed to re-read this short novella today. Both main characters Caleb and Jon were sweet and innocent pair. I really liked them a lot. Even if the plot was short, I loved it. It was short, sweet and complete.
I really Recommend this novella it was awesome.

I would've preferred to have had a yorkshireman sheep farmer, albeit a mute one, know how to train a sheep dog.
Maybe my mood was just too rotten to appreciate a sweet short story, but sadly there were just a few too many things that pulled me out of the story.
good short story... but, sort of meh
not bad... but... meh

This was one of those "healing power of love" stories. It's short but very sweet with a great HEA. It's not very explicit and is more sweet than steamy.

Cute story. Jumps a bit, wraps up any issues within a paragraph. More like a 3.5. But a cute happy ending.

Pretty good HEA but it was so short.. Felt like there was so much missing over the year they had together..
