The Double H cowboys are a tough bunch, and none of them are gay--exactly--but they have been out there on the prairie for several weeks, herding cattle, and new thoughts have begun to enter their minds. Enter Buck, a handsome young drifter with a silly grin, an unembarrassed penchant for being "rode hard," and an instant hankering for Les--the straight ranch boss. Despite his openness about his tastes, Buck quickly demonstrates to his fellow cowhands that he's no sissy, at the same time charming them with his zest for life. But it is Les who has stolen Buck's heart. As these rugged cowboys dance their own version of the Texas two-step, the other boys watch their little Buck's campaign with amused interest and bet their boots on what the outcome will be.
"The publication of Victor J. Banis's Longhorns is a major event for gay publishing...a terrific novel and a great read" ... Michael Bronski
As a fun, light, sexy read that has some interesting characters, Longhorns did hold my interest throughout. I especially loved Red, Les’ best friend and found the other Double H Ranch cowboys matchmaking abilities with Buck and Les to be delightful.
