How can Daniel convince the man he loves, to stay with him in Ellery?
Luke Fitzgerald left Ellery Mountain for college and vowed never to return, but with his father murdered, he has no choice but to return. Luke only goes home to sell off his share of the Ellery Mountain Cabins, but everything changes when he meets the son of the other owner.
Daniel Skylar is an ex-soldier who lives every day to the limit and sees a future in Luke. It doesn’t matter what Daniel says, or how much he needs Luke; Luke isn’t staying once everything is sold off. Surely Daniel can understand that?
“….This story is really well written and it does tug at your heartstrings for what Luke had to face alone and also the effect it is still having on him. Daniel and Luke are an excellent pairing and are very hot together. They have a strong connection that goes further than a physical attraction and they make a great couple….”

Hearts On Fire Reviews – 4/5 – “….The books in this series focus on the quaint little town of Ellery where life is fairly idyllic and the lives of the four gay friends that grew up there. The characters are wonderful and well developed, there is plenty of the much loved angst and a slow build up to love. The stories have HEA endings with just enough twist to hold my interest. The Ellery Mountain series is definitely a worthwhile read….”
Rainbow Book Reviews – “….I liked this story although I wanted to knock Daniel and Luke’s heads together more than once for their stubbornness. Fortunately they redeemed themselves in the end. The characters are strong, even some of the secondary ones like Luke’s ex and best friend. As outrageous as he was, he gave Luke the support and the shove that he needed to get his life going. I also loved Daniel’s friends who are introduced in the first book in the series. It’s definitely a good follow-up story and I look forward to reading more about them. I recommend this story to fans of the ‘Ellery Mountain’ series and for new readers as well; although it can be read alone, reading the books in sequential order will give you a fuller, more meaningful experience. Thanks, RJ, for revisiting the mountain and introducing us to more fascinating characters….”
The Romance Reviews – 4/5 – “….I’m a sucker for troubled romance heroes and this novella has two. Daniel is further along in his recovery than Luke but they’re both wrestling demons and still taking responsibility for their issues. I like their honest conversations with each other, especially with Daniel’s willingness to be so emotionally vulnerable to Luke. Their romance is intense both sexually and emotionally, and I really liked watching their courtship….”
Mrs Condit Reads Books – 4/5 – “….a simple love story that left me happy in the end. Luke deserved to find love and Daniel was the perfect one to give it….”
Sensual Reads – 4.5/5 – “….Pick up this delicious story, The Teacher and the Soldier by RJ Scott, and immerse yourself in an excellent tale of love and need. Your emotions and heart cannot help but be touched by both Luke and Daniel….”
