Two men battle the wilderness—and their desire.
It’s 1793, and Simon Cavendish needs to get to his station at Fort Charlotte, a fur-trading outpost in the untamed Canadian wild. The fort is only accessible by canoe, and there’s just one man daring enough to take him on the perilous, thousand-mile journey from Montreal this late in the summer.
Young Christian Smith, the son of an Ojibwe mother and absent English father, is desperate for money to strike out on his own, so he agrees to take Simon deep into the bush. As they travel endless lakes and rivers, the arduous expedition takes its toll.
Yet the attraction between Simon and Christian, two men from vastly different worlds, grows ever stronger. Locked in a battle against the wilderness and elements, how long can they fight their desire for each other?
This gay historical romance from Keira Andrews features adventure in the wilderness, outdoor sex, and a happy ending. Standalone, free romance novella.
