Outlast the Night: Lang Downs Series, Book 3

Outlast the Night - Ariel Tachna 3.5 starsWonderful atmosphere and setting, the bleak, stark beauty of the land was awesome in the awe-inspiring sense of the word. The details are woven in slowly through the telling of Sam's journey. It is a story of understanding and acceptance and bravery in facing life's changes.Jeremy is a consumate stockman. Well suited to life on a sheep station, unsurprising since he was born to it. Sam is self-effacing and unsure due to his insecurities rooted in the instability that rocked his life for the last few years and because of the lie he's been trying to live.The telling is slow and gentle. I liked the pace; it made sense for the men. At times, I was a bit frustrated at Sam's paranoia, but I understood it. Jeremy's handling of it was an exercise of legendary patience. In many ways, it read like a wooing of olden days, but realistically it was a deliberate lets be friends before we're lovers story. Thus, it is a sweet story, where the doors close even with the established couples--no wild romps.Recommended for fans of scenic locales and readers who enjoy a sweet romance.Favorite quote:That chaste, tender kiss shouldn’t have been anything special, yet it clearly had been.~~ A copy was provided to me for a No Glitter Blown review~~Reviewed for Hearts On Fire Reviews
