A Johnny Lee Capstone Novel
Eight men are about to descend upon Capstone's Dude Ranch, and they are in for the most memorable two weeks of their lives.
Chief among them are Thrice Montgomery, a spoiled rich New Yorker who has arrived at the ranch, newly single, running from his cheating ex. Marc Tolling has recently come out, the support of his ex-wife and daughter allowing him the chance to indulge all the sexual exploration he's lost out on over the years. What both men do not realize is they will find themselves in competition for the attention of the ranch's studly owner. Johnny Lee Capstone, owner and proprietor of Capstone's Dude Ranch, is the ideal cowboy, sexy and single, hot and hairy, and more than willing to submit to the sexual whims of his guests. There is something familiar about Marc, but what past they shared eludes him, and Marc, for some reason, isn't talking. As for Thrice, his cocky self-assuredness has intrigued Johnny Lee, and soon they begin a passionate, steamy affair. But an unexpected visitor threatens the delicate balance at Capstone's, and as the men venture deep in the misty woods, the sexual heat spills out, ultimately jeopardizing the life of one of the eight men.
Rich in the atmosphere of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, sexual desire unleashed on virtually every page, DUDE RANCH is the story of three men who give in to their basest desires and in the process realize what has been missing from their lives.
