The Shearing Gun
by Renae Kaye
from Dreamspinner Press
Release date: 19 September 2014
At twenty-five, Hank owns a small parcel of land in Australia’s rural southwest where he supplements his income from the property with seasonal shearing. Hank is a “shearing gun”—an ace shearer able to shear large numbers of sheep in a single day. His own father kicked him out when his sexuality was revealed, and since no one would ever hire a gay shearer, Hank has remained firmly closeted ever since.
Elliot is the newbie doctor in town—city-born and somewhat shell-shocked from his transplant to the country. When a football injury brings Hank to Elliot’s attention, an inappropriate sexual glance and the stuttered apology afterward kickstarts their friendship.
Romance and love soon blossom, but it’s hard for either of them to hope for anything permanent. As if the constant threat of being caught isn’t enough, Elliot’s contract runs out after only a year.
Reviews for The Shearing Gun
5 stars, Love Bytes
"This third book by Renae Kaye is her best work so far and goes to show that she isn't limited to a "type" when it comes to character or plot."
5 stars, RJ Scott
"An awesome read."
5 stars, multitakingmommas
"This is a typical Kaye Romance that reads purely romantic and hotly erotic."
5 stars, It's About The Book
"I loved this book. I loved the story. Loved the characters. Loved the good-natured teasing between the characters. Loved the laid-back humour (I laughed out loud more than once). Loved the way life on the land is described. Loved the flow of the story, the affection and tenderness that grows between the MCs, the depiction of mateship between friends, family and loved ones. Loved the sheer Australian-ess of it. I couldn’t recommend this book enough."
4.5 stars, Joyfully Jay
"A big hit for me from an author I am really enjoying immensely. Definitely recommended."
