The Lonely Ones by Bailey Bradford

Marshall’s all city, and Rex is all cowboy, so it’s no wonder sparks fly when they meet.

Marshall Evans never wanted to inherit his grandfather’s Thoroughbred horse ranch. He doesn’t know much about raising and training racehorses, and he knows even less about the man who left him what he sees as a burden. His grandfather wasn’t a nice m

This anthology of six stories about horses and the men who love them is a great collection of sweet romances, funny tales, and dark-ish mysteries. Some are set in the past, some in the present, but all focus on the sometimes unpredictable ways in which love manifests in men’s lives. You’ll find soft romances as well as hot trysts and everything in between in the pages of this anthology whose royalties from the publisher will be donated to Cancer Research UK and Prospect Hospice in memory of Pete ...more

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is a rather delicious collection of MM stories with a leaning towards horse racing. Set in various time periods, but all snapshots of a forbidden romance, and yet the heart wants what it wants!

The Lonely Ones by Bailey Bradford

As ever Ms Bradford writes beautiful prose, which also strikes at the heart and steams up the room. Lovely story about interesting characters - and even if only brief, a whole story is created.

I would normally review each story as I go along but decided to it differently this time. First let me say I loved the cover and loved pretty much all the stories. I picked the anthology because I’ve read books from most of the authors and it was great. This anthology was a big mixture of many types of stories from historic to contemporary. I never one much for reading historic types of books but it was a quick read and I actually enjoyed it. I am one who reads many contemporary mm romance types ...more

Original review on Molly Lolly
This anthology is a joy to read. I love how all of the stories are about horse riding in some way but yet they each have their own take on it. It’s not the same story over and over again. The wide variety of stories made this an anthology I couldn’t put down and wanted more from.

Marshall Evans never wanted to inherit his grandfather’s Thoroughbred horse ranch. He doesn’t know much about raising and training racehorses, and he knows even less about the man who left him what he sees as a burden. His grandfather wasn’t a nice man at all, and he left the ranch to Marshall more as a fuck you to the one person who did want the ranch, who had tried to buy

The Lonely Ones by Bailey Bradford – 4 stars
I am a huge Bradford fan and was excited for the chance to read a novella that is unrelated to any of the several series of her books I read. Even though The Lonely Ones is a much shorter novella than I’m accustomed to, I liked that while there was some initial physical attraction on both Rex and Marshall’s parts even as they were glaring at one another during their first meeting,

It's not often that I read an anthology that picks a theme and covers every possible connotation of that theme. This anthology about racing horses and the lives and loves of the people connected to the industry delivers just that. You will find cowboys and grooms, blacksmiths and jockeys, owners and vets, trainers and stable hands.There is a mixed selection of stories and while not all of them appealed to me, the love of all things horses is evident in the detailing and descriptions.

Only read and rated Racing for Home by Morticia Knight
#super sweet historical romance shortie set in 1912.

blurb:

Groom Charlie loves the Piedmont Farms horses—but not nearly as much as the man he can never have, Edward Piedmont.

At the age of twenty-two, Charlie has lived at Piedmont Farms—the largest race horse breeding facility on the east coast—for eight years. For five of those years, he’s been desperately in love with Albert Piedmont’s oldest son, Edward. At one time, he believed Edward’s d

3.5 star average
A curious mix of six stories, ranging from contemporary to historic, some suspense, plenty of angst and drama and even a reunited lovers trope all make up this anthology that carries a common theme of the thoroughbred racing industry. From owners to grooms, vets to jockeys, trainers through stable hands the elements that deal with the industry are a veritable list of people you’ll find on the backside at the racetrack.

Each story has it’s good and bad points: some overwhelm with

A few things about me...

I am a married mom of four who spends most of the day writing, either on stories or at the blog. I love to write as much as I love to read. I am generally quiet and laid back, choosing to let things slide off me rather than stick and irritate me.

And it's really hard trying to think of descriptives for myself, so I'll just let y'all e-mail me or comment at the blog if there'
