“Some scars run soul-deep. Some scars only love can heal.”

Brody is the wrangler at Farthingdale Ranch. He knows a lot about horses, but not a whole lot about people.

He is so broken, he cannot imagine anyone would want to love him. Then along comes Kit, a young man in need of shelter, searching for a forever home.

In Kit, Brody sees the scared young man he used to be. In caring for Kit, Brody is in over his head.

But as Brody makes room in his heart for Kit, both their lives begin to change.

A gay m/m cowboy romance with hurt/comfort, rescue, age gap, fish out of water, opposites attract, midnight rendezvous. A little sweet, a little steamy, with a guaranteed HEA.

Guest Post By Jackie North

When I came up with the concept of doing a series of m/m romances set on a guest ranch, I already knew I wanted a brooding loner cowboy (Brody) who would find his one true love in the least likely of places.

Brody’s background is rough, full of scenes that were difficult to write—but his reward is the orphan, Kit, who loves Brody with all his heart and soul.

I have a thing about orphans, always have, as my own kidhoood was somewhat rugged. I know what it’s like to have someone hold out their hand to pull you to your feet, to have someone care that maybe you didn’t get enough to eat that day or perhaps for several days.

I was also inspired by the movie “Buck,” which tells the story of Buck Brannaman, and how he came to be a horse whisperer.
Buck Brannaman was, in fact, part of the inspiration for the novel “The Horse Whisperer,” by Nicholas Sparks, and main inspiration for the 1998 movie “The Horse Whisperer,” directed by and starring Robert Redford. Buck Brannaman served as consultant for the movie.

I have not seen the movie or read the book, but just watched “Buck,” almost moved to tears by him talking so levelly about his kidhood, which was far worse than mine.

I wanted to write a story about how someone with such a horrible, miserable time growing up could find love and happiness. The Result is The Wrangler and the Orphan.

Writing for love, working towards that happy ever after.


Jackie North has been writing stories since grade school and spent years absorbing the mainstream romances that she found at her local grocery store. Her dream was to someday leave her corporate day job behind and travel the world. She also wanted to put her English degree to good use and write romance novels, because for years she’s had a never-ending movie of made-up love stories in her head that simply wouldn’t leave her alone.

As fate would have it, she discovered m/m romance and decided that men falling in love with other men was exactly what she wanted to write books about. In this dazzling new world, she turned her grocery-store romance ideas around and is now putting them to paper as fast as her fingers can type. She creates characters who are a bit flawed and broken, who find themselves on the edge of society, and maybe a few who are a little bit lost, but who all deserve a happily ever after. (And she makes sure they get it!)

She likes long walks on the beach, the smell of lavender and rainstorms, and enjoys sleeping in on snowy mornings. She is especially fond of pizza and beer and, when time allows, long road trips with soda fountain drinks and rock and roll music. In her heart, there is peace to be found everywhere, but since in the real world this isn’t always true, Jackie writes for love.
