Vengeance. It's the one
thing on ex-cop Rhys Tellar's mind and he's spent every day of his two
year prison sentence planning how he'll bring down the former lover and
partner who sold him out and cost four people their lives. A six month
parole stint working at the CB Bar Ranch in Southwestern Montana should
be the easiest thing he's ever done. But the last thing he expects is to
feel something for both the charismatic ranch hand who befriends him
and the enigmatic foreman who's pretending to be something he's not.
That's what Finn Stewart wants, but to have it he must leave behind the
man he wants above all others, his very straight boss and best friend,
Callan Bale. As the only openly gay man in a small, homophobic
community, Finn has to fight every day to be who he is and walking away
is starting to seem like the easier path. Until Rhys Tellar shows up and
A Lie. Callan Bale's entire life has
been about hiding the man he really is and it's about to cost him the
one person who's managed to worm his way past the walls he's spent years
putting up. But choosing Finn would mean giving up everything he's
worked for and breaking the promises he's made. At least losing the
younger man to Rhys means Finn can have the life he deserves.
