I loved this.
While short, Keira packs the emotional punch with this historical voyage through the Canadian wilderness.
Set in 1793, this story follows the thousand mile journey of two men who over the course of their journey develop a relationship unlike either have ever experienced.
He didn’t know how to feel. Exhilarated. Embarrassed. Apprehensive. Excited. Confused.
“You’re like me, aren’t you?”
Simon was puzzled. “Like you?”
“You wouldn’t want a woman even if there was one here.”
“No. I wouldn’t.” Simon was thrilled. Could Christian feel the same way he did? Did he sense the bond between them growing ever stronger?
“The others I’ve met, they…they weren’t like us. For them it was just to fill a void. A need. Nothing more. They’d choose a woman if they could.”
Simon pressed their lips together, wishing he could see Christian’s eyes in the gloom. “I’ve never wanted a woman. And I want every part of you.”
And yet, this one ended too soon, as all shorts do. I could have continued with this for many many more pages.
