Mario and Kirby are about as opposite as two men can get. One has made his fortune breeding horses and the other made his in the bio-tech industry. As opposite as they might be, they share two interests—one with each other and the other in Dedra Hopkins. They long for her to be their permanent third. The woman they share for the rest of their lives. She took off for the big city years ago, leaving Hazard County in the dust. Now she’s back and ready to give them a chance if they’re men enough to take it—and they’re more than men enough.
