BLURB: Welcome to Sutton Station: One of the world’s largest working farms in the middle of Australia – where if the animals and heat don’t kill you first, your heart just might. 

Charlie Sutton runs Sutton Station the only way he knows how; the way his father did before him. Determined to keep his head down and his heart in check, Charlie swears the red dirt that surrounds him – isolates him – runs through his veins.

American agronomy student Travis Craig arrives at Sutton Station to see how farmers make a living from one of the harshest environments on earth. But it’s not the barren, brutal and totally beautiful landscapes that capture him so completely, it’s the man with the red dirt heart.

REVIEW: I think these two guys have turned into my second favorite same sex characters. Charlie was stuck in a rut, he thinks he has nothing in his life except for his station (ranch). When he agrees to host an American student for one month he never in his wildest dreams thought that the love of his life would walk through his front door. Trying to maintain the boundaries between boss and employee gets harder each day for Charlie. When Travis opens up to Charlie that he has the same feelings, Charlie's first thought is why? What does he have to offer a man? His father told him early on that he would never allow a "fairy" to run his station but when his father dies, Charlie comes back to take over. With the love and support of his employees who are more family than employees, Charlie makes the station better but he also pulls Travis into his world with no plans of letting him go, not that Travis plans on leaving anyway.
