Robbie Sexton is heading home to north Alabama for his father's funeral. In Baltimore, he could be himself, but in Athens, Alabama, he figures he'll be back in the proverbial closet. The only one who knows he's even gay is his cousin Danny. Of course, that's when life decides to throw him a curveball. Thanks to a bit of matchmaking on Danny's part, Robbie meets Seth Ellis, one of the newest ranch hands on his uncle's farm. Before long, he realizes maybe heading home wasn't such a bad idea. Over several months, Robbie's life winds up in a bit of a whirlwind. Between becoming an uncle himself, dealing with his bigoted brother, and trying to start over in the tattoo business, he has his hands full. But there remains one constant in his life: Seth.
