Toni and Minnie by BettyHT Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1]
Summary: Adam returns after years away and finds love, danger, and drama: all the usual, and Hoss finds love too. Some comedy too especially with the Christmas and Lad stories.

This was a series of stories published on other sites -- the chapters can stand on their own as stories but of course, it all will likely make more sense if all the chapters are read in order.
