This is not really a sequel to "winter courtship" as it partly plays out at the same time. It is a slow building romance with a lot of backstory for Jeremy, ex con and traumatised, who finds his first real home at Ben's Alpaca farm. He also meets Aidan there, wholesome and confident and he falls for him deeply, but doesn't allow himself those feelings for quite some time.I liked this very much - Jeremy was such a complex and interesting character. The way he copes with his past is heartbreaking at times. A very good read.
