Ash & Oak (A Crow Creek Novel)

by Nya Rawlyns

Ash MacBryde thinks he knows what he wants. When his sister offers him the chance to return to his roots and take over running the ranch, he jumps at the chance. Ranching has always been his first love but it doesn’t fill the long lonely nights.

Oak Richards’ career is skyrocketing, earning him national recognition in his sport of endurance racing. But after an unfortunate riding accident, when his mentor and lover decides Oak is no longer flavor of the month, he’s cast adrift.

Will a little luck, a healthy dose of fate, and a matchmaking sister conspire to bring together two damaged men living two thousand miles apart?

For the shy, reclusive Oak and the domineering, territorial Ash there’s more than distance separating them. When they finally meet, sparks fly; but it will take more than just a powerful attraction to bridge the gap between them.

Reviews:Susan Mac Nicol on The Romance Reviews wrote:

Beautifully written and with male leads that will just break your heart with their emotional stories, depth of character and sheer sexiness, this is a true love story of two men coming together on the ranch to find in each other what is missing in themselves.

"I came. I saw. I swooned." Ash's first impression of the young man with eyes of blue like a stormy ocean leaves him tongue tied. Oak feels the same, and so the game between them begins. It's hot, sexy, tender and leaves you saying, "Awww, these two are just beautiful together."

Once again, Nya Rawlyns proves she can weave a spellbinding and poignant tale of two men finding love. I just wish it had been longer so I could have read deeper into the night instead of gobbling it up greedily like a plate of delicious sticky toffee pudding.

Brown Penny on Amazon wrote:

I loved this story of how two men can love each other, yet careen off each other as their wills and their insecurities collide. Gentle yet hard. Sweet but punishing. Sexy, endearing, and believable. I love these guys, and you will too. Five BIG stars.
