Welcome to Sutton Station: One of the world’s largest working farms in the middle of Australia – where if the animals and heat don’t kill you first, your heart just might.
Charlie Sutton runs Sutton Station the only way he knows how; the way his father did before him. Determined to keep his head down and his heart in check, Charlie swears the red dirt that surrounds him – isolates him – runs through his veins.
American agronomy student Travis Craig arrives at Sutton Station to see how farmers make a living from one of the harshest environments on earth. But it’s not the barren, brutal and totally beautiful landscapes that capture him so completely.
It’s the man with the red dirt heart.
This was such a good book. I loved watching Charlie figure out who he is and grow more comfortable with himself. Travis is amazing. The way he kind of comes in and steam rolls over Charlie’s issues and just assumes it’s all going to work out. I was scared with Charlie when Travis went missing. The ending was beautiful. Even though I know there are three more books in the series, I could easily stop here and be happy with the way things ended. Obviously I won’t because I want to see how Charlie and Travis grow together even more over time.

I am many things; a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer.
I have pretty, pretty boys who live in my head, who don’t let me sleep at night unless I give them life with words.
I like it when they do dirty, dirty things…but I like it even more when they fall in love.
I used to think having people in my head talking to me was weird, until one day I happened across other writers who told me it was normal.
I’ve been writing ever since…
