When a man works hard and lives hard, he likes his loving hard, and who better to share that hard loving with than another hard living, hard loving man? This is a book of twenty all-new stories that are (mostly, inspiration created a few softer-toned exceptions on me) about this kind of man. A hard living man doesn't believe in flowers or soft moonlight, he wants to get down and shove it in hard and he can take it as well as dish it out, if that's what it takes to get his rocks off.
