A Hard Ride Home

Title: A Hard Ride Home
Author Name: Emory Vargas
Publication Date & Length: June 17, 2015 – 172 pages


It’s hard enough returning to his birthplace to replace a dead man as sheriff. The last thing Emmett needs is to find himself smitten with Jesse, the whore he arrests almost immediately upon arrival. Especially since Jesse works for his half-sister and at her thoroughly disreputable saloon.

But being smitten with a whore is only the beginning of Emmett’s troubles. Silver Creek is a town full of secrets and people too terrified to talk. Why does Emmett’s father, the mayor of Silver Creek, have such a strong hold on the town—and on Jesse?

 FourStarsA noble sheriff, an evil mayor and a beautiful boy take centre stage in Emory Vargas’ tale of love and mayhem in the Wild West.I love cowboys, but historical m/m westerns are too often weighed down by homophobia and angst.  Not this one.  Emory Vargas has created a surrealist Wild West where pretty boys live in brothels and work alongside the girls.

With exciting shoot-outs, steamy sex-scenes between beautiful men and a red-headed sheriff to make us go weak at the knees, this is a simple, fun and undemanding read.

Emory Vargas loves knitting scarves and writing about tentative first time sexual encounters and amorous cephalopods, though not always at the same time.
