They call it hot, sexy, tender

220113_463154800384899_1233900935_oI grew up a crazy horse-loving kid from the city, but it wasn’t until I was in my early thirties that I was able to buy my first horse (a disaster), then the next, and like potato chips… you can’t have just one.

Den and WinnieI never looked back. I competed in low level eventing, dressage, competitive trail and endurance. I packed into the Wind River Range on horseback, rode the trails around Razor Creek Dome in CO and the Snowys in WY. In short, I lived the dream.

So it’s no wonder, when I started writing, my thoughts automatically drifted to my heroes—cowboys—and the open spaces and rugged mountains I call home in the only place that counts: my heart.


What began as a simple guy-meets-guy story morphed into a saga of men with pasts that can’t be set aside, with trust betrayed and learning acceptance for who and what you are.

These men vie to hold onto the things they hold dear. Riding for the time. Riding for the glory. And it takes only one misstep to disqualify any one of them from the competition … and from love.


The Crow Creek Saga has been called hot, sexy and tender.

AskAsh MacBryde is domineering and possessive, and carrying an emotional burden he’s buried deep. Oak Richards is shy and reclusive, comfortable around the horses he loves, but tongue-tied when it comes to people. Two men, so different and yet alike, come together and find the missing pieces in each other. But love’s never easy, not when one of them carries secrets. The chance arrival of an old friend and former lover re-ignites memories Ash has been trying to hide, threatening everything he holds dear. When he loses control and does the unthinkable, Oak runs, back to his home and back to an employer who had once cast him away like so much trash.

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Oak has his own demons waiting for him, in the guise of the man who’d opened the closet door for him, a man determined to pick up where they left off so many years before. When Ash shows up to bring his man home, he discovers a side to Oak he never knew. And the only way the domineering possessive man and the gentle reclusive soul can find their way back to Crow Creek Ranch means learning that…

Sometimes it takes two wrongs to make it right.

About Nya Rawlyns

Nya Rawlyns doesn’t write typical romance. She writes emotion as a contact sport, rough and often raw. It need not be pleasant, heart-warming or forever after. What she seeks is what lies beneath—a dance of extremes, the intersect of need and desire, and the compromises we make when pain and pleasure become indistinguishable. ***** She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. ***** When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or three pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.
