A Clouds and Rain Story
Hunter Krause knows better than anyone that running a ranch is hard work. Wranglers are hard to find, and even with Hunter’s foreman and entire extended family on hand, the busy ranch is constantly short-handed. So when horses go missing, Hunter’s brother-in-law hires a man Hunter would never have considered: Grant Jarreau, a man Hunter can't forgive for leaving Hunter’s best friend Gable after an incapacitating accident.
Grant quickly fits in, befriending Hunter’s sister and making himself invaluable. Despite Hunter’s misgivings, he can’t quite control his body’s reactions to Grant, and he isn’t sure what to do about it. Then Grant saves Hunter’s young nephew from drowning and one thankful kiss opens doors Hunter never knew existed.
While Hunter and Grant tentatively move toward a relationship, the family’s in an uproar, the ranch is struggling, they can’t figure out what happened to the horses, and to top it all off, Grant is hiding something. Can Hunter learn to trust Grant, or will the turmoil already tearing up his family claim another victim?

It's rare that I actually take the time to write up a review, but I thought posting something would be more useful than the one currently taking up space by some poor sod who doesn't seem to be very pleased with anything he listens to, or is incapable of actually reading a blurb before purchasing.
Just in case anyone else lacks reading comprehension, this is a romance between two men. A GAY romance. On a ranch. It's a gay romance between ranchers.
And it's good. I really like the Clouds and Rain series, really liked Clouds and Rain, and I wondered about Grant and Hunter at the end of that book. Earth and Sky does a great job of telling their story. The drama kept me interested, and the sex scenes were hot. It's rare that I actually enjoy stories with "gay for you" characters, but I really did enjoy Hunter's exploration of his sexuality, and how it gifted him with so much more than what he expected.
Paul Morey is seriously putting it down for Dreamspinner Press with the glut of books he's been narrating, and I actually enjoy his work, though I did notice that Hunter lost the accent he had in Clouds and Rain, so that threw me off for a second in this book. Whatever DP is paying this man, it's well worth it. Keep him.
I loved this follow up story, it have everything you could want in a good story. All the drama you could imagine and then some and action all my goodness just a good story. I definitely have become a reader of "Zahra Owens". GOOD JOB
If I had known this book was couched around gay "ranchers", I'd never have bought it. I'll NEVER buy another Zahra Owens book and I want this book returned
I didn't listen to enough of the book to form an opinion of the performance.
I wish there was a method of identifying Gay books prior to purchase.
