He needs help, stat, and when Trace falls shows up at the local diner, Brent doesn't hesitate, even though he knows people might question Trace's rainbow dreads and piercings.
As Trace struggles to fit in and do his ranch manny job, and Brent tries to make time to breathe, the two of them find common ground and gradually a burning heat for each other. But can they make a real home together, or will everything fall apart as they both try to keep up with all their responsibilities, and face a life or death situation for all of them?
