Outback Treasure I

A city boy in Australia’s outback? He won’t even last two weeks.

Pete is geeky-cute and sweet. He’s also way too young for me. But he’s so much like me too. He loves this desolate land, and he fits right in with station life. My family. Me.

There are a million reasons why we shouldn’t be together. But I keep forgetting them when he’s near.

If only he’d told me why he was really here…

Outback Treasure I is the first part of the Pearce Station duet. Pete and Scottie’s story concludes in Outback Treasure II.

Outback Treasure II

A city boy in Australia’s outback. Who would have thought I’d last longer than two weeks?

My station owner may be older but he’s as beautiful and rugged as the red dirt that flows through his veins. Scottie deserves better than me too. I lied to him. But he encourages me. He helps me follow my dreams.

Scottie has warned me a thousand times though. It’s not easy. The desert is as unforgiving as the people. We’ve each got a fight on our hands. For our happiness. For our survival.

Outback Treasure II is the conclusion of Pete and Scottie’s story.

“If you wanna ask me something, just ask it,” Scott spoke quietly after a time.

“Does it get lonely out here?” It wasn’t what I wanted to ask, but it was as close as I dared come to the question I really wanted to know the answer to.

“Yes and no. We’re only a few hours out of Longreach, so it’s easy enough to go there. Everyone else usually does.”

“But not you,” I finished.

“Nah, I stay here and look after the animals when they all head off.”

“You can’t go to town on one of the weekends your station hands stay here?”

He shook his head. “Not really much point. I don’t really drink.” He shrugged. “And I don’t do church either so….”

I sat quietly for a moment, contemplating what he said. “How old are you?”

“Forty. You?”

“Twenty-five.” When he flicked his gaze to mine, shock lit his features. “I look younger, I know. It’s the freckles.” He nodded and I hedged another question. “You don’t wanna hook up with anyone in town? Find a nice lady to spend the night with? This station’s a long way from company. Don’t you crave sex?”

He looked hard at me, unflinching. As if he was analyzing what I was asking. Searching for a deeper meaning. I was, and yet I wasn’t. Granted, he was a few years older than me, but he was still a man. He still had urges. Needs. He ran the station and had the respect of his family. I hadn’t seen him with his stockmen and women, but I had a feeling they’d respect him all the same. And yet he lived in a bubble. Seemed to isolate himself.

“I go to Brisbane and Sydney for a week every year. It’s enough.”

“Fuck me, you’re a better man than me. I’d go stir crazy.”

“Yeah well, just shows how different we are.”

There was a bite to his tone, which I hadn’t meant to put there. “I didn’t mean to offend you.”

His voice was quiet, but there was steel behind it. That same charisma turned into passion and fire. “We don’t all have the luxury of being able to walk into a bar somewhere and fuck the first person to catch your eye. Longreach is a small town. Everyone knows everyone. I can’t just go round and hook-up with whoever I like. It’d have consequences. For my family. For this station. And I won’t risk either one of them just to get my rocks off.” His eyes flashed angrily and his nostrils flared as he breathed hard.

“I’m sorry, I didn’t know.”

He sighed. “Don’t apologize. I just can’t. Ma and Nan, even Ally are always at me to go out and meet some girl I can bring home. But that’s not me. Longreach is in the middle of bloody nowhere, but we’re even more remote. This desert… it’s in me. It’s part of my soul. I reckon if you cut me, I’d bleed red dirt. But it’s a hard life. One that most people won’t even consider.” He poked at the fire again. With his head down and his shoulders sagging, he spoke again, his voice barely above a whisper, “It’s easier not to try. No disappointment….” His words trailed off like he’d expended all the energy he had.

“You have your family and your workers. At least you’re not alone.” I snapped the twig I’d used to toast marshmallows on and tossed it into the dying embers of the fire that were being kept alive by Scott’s prodding. “Apart from hook-ups, and a flatmate I saw every few days, I didn’t really have anyone. And we all know how deep and meaningful hook-ups are.”

“No parents? Siblings?”

“An older sister, but apparently I embarrass her, so I tend to just keep away. Mum and Dad don’t understand. They mean well, but they keep trying to change me into something I’m not. And it’s hard to make friends in the city when you don’t get out much other than to get off.”

“Tough gig, huh?” he mused. “Suppose you don’t need to be in the desert to be isolated.”

“That’s the funny thing with a city. You can be alone and lonely even in the biggest crowd.” I gave him a small smile, trying to shake off the downer I’d plunged us into. I stood up then and stretched my arms above my head before a yawn ripped free. “Come on, walk me to my room so I don’t break a leg or stand on a snake. Get eaten by a dingo. Whatever.”

“Dingoes don’t usually bother us, especially not near the homestead. We don’t bait them ’cause they naturally keep the roo population from exploding, but we’ve got to protect the calves from them. We run Charbray cattle here—a Charolais Brahman cross—so they’re too big for the dingoes to attack when they’re fully grown. But, yeah….”

“I’m smaller than a cow. Seriously, are they gonna eat me?” My alarm was clear.

Scott laughed and my breath caught in my throat. His entire face transformed. Years fell away and a smile worthy of a Hollywood actor spread across his features. “You’ll be right, mate.” He clapped me on the shoulder, and I swallowed. “Come on, City. Let’s get you tucked into bed. We get up early here.”

I ignored the jibe, still speechless from seeing his smile, and followed him into the darkness. It took a moment for my eyes to adjust, but when they did, I saw the silhouette of the guesthouse against the starry sky. The building wasn’t what captured my attention though. It was the stars. An immense sky touched the horizon all around us. Bright pinpricks of light pierced the darkness and the half-moon hovering there seemed like I could reach out and touch it. The flat land extended for hundreds of kilometres in every direction. Dark and quiet, it was a complete contrast with the fireworks show in the sky. I didn’t realize I’d stopped walking until Scott stepped up beside me, our shoulders nearly touching, and looked up too. “Nothing like the sky out here.”

“It’s beautiful,” I breathed, looking at him with wonder in my eyes. When he turned to me, I couldn’t help adding, “But everything out here is.”

About Ann Grech

By day Ann Grech lives in the corporate world and can be found sitting behind a desk typing away at reports and papers or lecturing to a room full of students. She graduated with a PhD in 2016 and is now an over-qualified nerd. Glasses, briefcase, high heels and a pencil skirt, she’s got the librarian look nailed too. If only they knew! She swears like a sailor, so that’s got to be a hint. The other one was “the look” from her tattoo artist when she told him that she wanted her kids’ initials “B” and “J” tattooed on her foot. It took a second to register that it might be a bad idea.

She’s never entirely fit in and loves escaping into a book—whether it’s reading or writing one. But she’s found her tribe now and loves her MM book world family. She dislikes cooking, but loves eating, can’t figure out technology, but is addicted to it, and her guilty pleasure is Byron Bay Cookies. Oh and shoes. And lingerie. And maybe handbags too. Well, if we’re being honest, we’d probably have to add her library too given the state of her credit card every month (what can she say, she’s a bookworm at heart)!

I only have one request… All three of us to be together… right now.
Luke Longfellow is a brilliant student at the University of New York, who recently graduated in flying colors. He comes from a religious family, and his parents expect him to get married to Annette, daughter of a local deacon at their church. Luke, on the other hand, has a secret; he’s bi-sexual and enjoys the company of both men and women.
During his time at the university, he has been exposed to this fact and has had the chance to explore himself and learns he can no longer go back to being heterosexual. A week into the wedding, Luke’s friends take him on vacation to Las Vegas for their version of a bachelor’s party. There, he meets Matt. A handsome hazel-eyed stranger/ Luke reveals that he is basically being forced into a marriage that will make him miserable.
He lets on that he does not have amorous for Annette, who he sees more as his sister than a lover. Luke advises Matt to break off the engagement; an advice which Matt takes. Breaking off the engagement leads to a breakdown in relations between Matt and his parents. This forces him to leave the house and head for a bisexual themed nightclub as a sign of defiance.
At the club, Luke and Matt meet again and eventually go home together. They continue seeing each other with no commitment until Luke after caught Matt with someone else just a day after they were together. Matt shows no remorse, and they eventually break up, leaving Luke to focus on his career.
After Luke becomes wildly successful in his career, he meets Susan, a client and billionaire heiress who has an interest in him. Luke and Susan start seeing each other and have a perfect relationship until Matt gets in the middle of their business.
Susan has been sent by her controlling father to set up a new business branch in the US from England. Things are going smoothly until Matt comes along and buys up parts of the land where Susan has earmarked for development on her father’s orders. Matt is willing to sell on one condition; he wants to have a drink with both Luke and Susan.
The three of them meet, and old flames are rekindled, leading Matt and Luke to have sex while Susan is passed out from alcohol. What they do not know is that she is not out cold, and she confronts Luke the next morning. Luke is surprised at her reaction. Instead of anger, she makes a request. She wants a threesome: Matt, Luke, and her. Luke agrees, and it happens. The threesome paves the way for a successful transaction and lays the foundation for the future, which could include an industrial war between Susan and her father.

Luke and Matt sat together on a sofa in the mansion. His trance-like stare was half because it was beautiful and half because he was drunk. Matt placed his hands on top of Luke’s shoulders and whispered something Luke did not hear. Although they had a prior discussion on being attracted to each other, Luke did not quite expect it when Matt reached in for a kiss. However, although it felt strange, he did not flinch, he wanted Matt’s lips on his. One kiss and he felt a volcano of emotions erupt in his pants.
Luke instantly hardened and yearned for Matt. Soon enough, they were both covered in sweat, breathing each other’s breath, and all Luke could think of was the increasing want to have Matt’s body thrusting into his. Without warning, Luke pushed Matt into the couch where they had sat a few minutes ago, and taking Matt’s already hard erection into his mouth, Luke slowly sucked on it, while Matt groaned. The response excited him, and he increased the tempo with a passion that seemed to borrow its fire from hell.
Matt dug his hands into Luke’s hair as he muttered, “fuck.” Luke smiled, he knew he was doing a good job, he could feel his balls shiver. But Luke wasn’t ready to end this, and as though Matt read his thoughts, Matt grabbed Luke’s jaw and kissed him gently. Luke could feel a smile on Matt’s lips as he helped himself to Luke’s mouth. Luke buried himself in what seemed like an unending barrage of kisses filled with fire. He was so enveloped in it, he barely heard Matt when he said, “turn around, Luke.”

JORDAN

I stood in the centre of the nose-bleed section at the top of the arena. From here I had a good view of the stage and crowd.

Glancing first off to one side, then the other, I confirmed the requested arena security were in place. Two men at the back with me, two women positioned at the front of the stage watching the audience closely.

I hated gigs like this, and Allison – my boss, knew it. The last thing I wanted to do was babysit a diva rock star who was full of self-importance with his head stuck in the clouds.

Six weeks. Six fucking weeks of strobe lights, deafening music and screaming, unpredictable fans. How the fuck were we supposed to detect any threats and prevent someone from being killed?

When I’d met Dallas Munroe yesterday, my judgement about people in show business hadn’t been wrong. To say he was full of himself was an understatement. So why was I so fucking attracted to him? He wasn’t my type and one only had to pick up any tabloid to find pictures of him being drooled over by some woman. Women I had no doubt he sweet-talked into his bed at every opportunity. Yep, he was as straight as a fucking arrow.

When the crowd began chanting his name, screaming and shouting, there was no doubt the band had just walked on stage. The noise in the arena was deafening. Straightening my stance, I snapped my attention back on the job.

Dallas had a presence on stage which the other band members didn’t have. He oozed sexiness and charisma, dressed in ripped jeans and a white wifebeater which clung to him like a glove, showing off his broad chest and muscular arms.

Ha! If only his fans knew what an arrogant prick the man really could be. Wearing a huge grin on his face, he waved to his adoring fans before performing moves which sent them wild as he moved to centre stage.

The other band members, who I’d been introduced to earlier in the evening, took up their positions.

About the Author

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia and retired after 37 years of Nursing.

My husband of 45 years, together with our elderly Jack Russell Terrier and extremely opinionated 26-year-old Cockatiel, enjoy holidays and travelling.

When we are at home, which is a small rural village, we spend our time renovating our home.

I write a variety of stories including Western Historical Romance, Contemporary Romance, Male/Male, Ménage and Shapeshifter.

Each book has a strong focus on story line with romantic interest building throughout.

I explore real life issues from kids on the streets to motorcycle war and put my own twist on each one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it

Reviewed in the United States on January 21, 2020

Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase

Ex military body guard and a rock star, both Alpha males garnering unwanted female attention. The chemistry fairly sizzles off the page. Dallas has a death threat and Jordan is thrown into the celebrity world as his bodyguard.

I enjoyed travelling my country through the pages of this book. Watching these two break down walls to be together. Meanwhile the mystery of the threat lurks in the background. A sneaky peek at characters from another series which you will enjoy reading too.

I fell in love with Jordan and Dallas. Their relationships and personalities were so different yet perfectly matched.

The Who-done-it perspective of the book had me turning pages and the descriptions of different places in Australia made me want to book a flight. Absolutely wonderful story!

Recommended and rated this book

As a fan of rockstar romances there was much that was familiar about the danger and the overall vibe of the music world. What set this m/m romance apart though was it’s Australian setting, which added a bit of the exotic to the story. Through Ms. Horsnell’s vivid depictions she pulled readers into the lushness of the country, and with characters from another of her series, there was also a familial feel to the story. Add in a bit of suspense courtesy of a crazed fan and you’’ll be frantically turning the pages to reach the conclusion. Jordan Phillips is a commanding former military man who becomes the bodyguard of rockstar Dallas when his life is threatened. He’s a sexy and strong-willed alpha hero who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. He doesn’t coddle Dallas like so many others do which makes for a sizzling connection between the two of them from the very start. Dallas Monroe’s on the cusp of a music tour of Australia when danger comes calling. He may not take it seriously at first but before long the danger becomes all too real. Luckily he has Jordan by his side, and in his bedroom, as he becomes more than a job to Jordan in a sizzling m/m romance that lit the pages on fire. Dallas is immensely appealing and I became very protective of him as readers were introduced to his dysfunctional family, a family who made his childhood hell and made me want to hug him. As a rockstar his time on stage was exhilarating, and it added to the overall exoticness of the story, a it brought out a commanding side to him too. When it came to the suspense, I thought those elements were held in the background more than I’d hoped for. What was there though was well-done and kept me on the edge of my seat. The moment Jordan and Dallas met it was clear they were meant to be, their introduction was combustible and made for many sizzling encounters throughout the story. In their relationship they were mostly equals, but there were times too where I felt Jordan was more dominant. No matter who took the lead though I found them a decadently delightful couple who I was rooting for every step of the way. Alongside this appealing main couple were characters from Ms. Horsnell’s Outback series which was a nicely added element that gave a familial vibe to the story and makes you want to read their stories too. On a whole I enjoyed the rollercoaster ride of emotions found amongst the pages as I was pulled in wholeheartedly to the balance of romance and suspense this author crafted.
