2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Lone Star on a Cowboy Heart (417-09-16-2016)

I started with mixed feelings as I ve never read before a book categorized from beginning as asexual and was prepared to be disappointed. Well, I wasn’t. The rhythm seemed a bit stunted but after a few pages it was obvious it fit the book and the old western feeling of it. This book is complicated from romantic and sexual points of view though apparently very simple and straightforward. It portrays the fluidity of human sexuality, the ways it’s different from person to person and sometimes different during a lifetime and with different partners involved. It’s not a book that everybody would enjoy, but it is different and interesting and I, for sure enjoyed it. A good debut story and I’ll be adding this author to my “to watch” list.

Sam, a sheriff's deputy in a small Arizona town, is off-duty when he finds himself in the middle of a hold-up at a local diner. He makes it out alive only because of Montgomery, who shoots the robber attempting to kill Sam—but in the fallout, the second robber gets away.

In the aftermath of that ugly night, Sam is determined to know Montgomery better, while Montgomery is determined to find the man who escaped. He's also dead set on avoiding the deputy, having secrets of his own he doesn't want out.

But loneliness is hard, and Montgomery can't resist the companionship Sam is offering—the companionship he's always wanted, but could never find. If they're going to explore it, however, first they'll have to stop the growing threat of the robber who got away...
