Come have a roll in the hay with one of Australia's leading rural fiction authors, Rachael Treasure, in her romping, rollicking first-ever collection of Agricultural Erotica. Guaranteed to get your tractor revving, Fifty Bales of Hay is an honest and imaginative exploration of everyday men and women getting down and dirty on the land.

From the dairy shed to the Royal Agricultural show pavilion, Treasure's cheeky satirical humour and wicked imagination offers up a dozen fun-filled, and sometimes poignant, tales of dust and lust. This collection will have you clamouring for a stock whip, a saddle and a cowboy.

Read complete review

Rachael Treasure is a well known Australian author of rural fiction and Fifty Bales of Hay is an entertaining collection of 12 sexy short stories between consenting adults on the land.

'Lust in the dust' says the blurb, and in Droving Done and Milking Time the dust is certainly stirred. In The Crutching and Cattle Crush familiar farming equipment is re purposed in inventive ways.

What I particularly loved about this collection is that the women and men featured range widely in age from new adult through to couples in mid life and beyond. I also really appreciated that generally the women take charge of their sexuality and their pleasure, from cougar Krissy in Branded to lonely long haul driver, Celia, in Truck Wash.

There is plenty of Sex in Fifty Bales of Hay – I don't think it's quite explicit enough to be termed erotica but for most readers I think the difference would be immaterial.
The references to EL James Fifty Shades of Grey are slyly amusing and I was glad to find there is no attempt to imitate the novel's story or characters.

Fifty Bales of Hay is an entertaining read, provocative, amusing and even tender. My husband has been trying to convince me to let him buy a ride on mower, I might just let him now

Fifty Bales of Hay

I think the author tells a reasonable story but it just wasn't my choice of good reading.

          The tales in this book were good reads, but you seem to just get into the story and it is over, because of this, its not my type of book to read.

                  With the variety of short stories, there's ample to keep the reader interested.
                  Not all sex and lust and has some twists to some of the stories.
                  A great fun book brilliantly written.
