La Posada by Kate Roman is the third short story in her Los Ranchos series, but you can read it as a stand-alone. It centers on Clay Garcia, a twenty-two year old Mexican-American man who is heir to his family’s large ranch in

California. Clay is involved in a secret sexual relationship with Warshaw, an Anglo cowboy twice his age – so, if you like interracial-multicultural romances with a significant age gap, check this out.

Their relationship teeters intriguingly between being sex-buddies and committed lovers. A story this short doesn’t have room to resolve the relationship fully, but it does include a hot sex scene and some vivid cultural details. Occasional phrases are in Spanish, which I don’t speak, but the author includes subtle hints to help readers guess the context.

The story opens with Clay’s family hosting a huge gathering, which includes the traditional “la posada” re-enactment of the Holy Family trying to find lodging at Bethlehem. The relatives pester Clay about when he will choose a steady girlfriend. Meanwhile, he longs for Warshaw, who is away on travel. That night, Warshaw shows up and the two men have a sexy encounter in the barn. They fear getting caught by Clay’s family, but it becomes obvious to both that their affair is turning into a real romance.
