Wand’ring Minstrel Jimothy Redwing is traveling from Tesna to Couvin to deliver letters to the citizens there. Stopping for the night, Jimothy beds down under a rock overhang. He is awakened the next morning by a smiling man on horseback. Ricky Lennox is on his way home to Couvin and offers Jimothy a ride. They stop at a cabin for the night, where they become lovers. Upon arrival at Couvin, Jimothy is surprised by something he learns about Ricky. However, Ricky refuses to give up his love for Jimothy. For the first time in his life, Jimothy considers having a permanent home.

The Ballad of Jimothy Redwing is a wonderful fantasy with well developed characters, intrigue, and heartwarming emotions. Maia Strong presents a fantastic happy-for-now saga, leaving the door open for a possible sequel. The romance displays intimate spice, along with a bond between two strong, loving men. I enjoyed this impressive tale.
