Can three men from very different backgrounds find a home and a future together?
After losing his husband to cancer, Oscar Kennedy has his hands full with their four girls, the house, his job, and his mother-in-law. When he loses his father too, keeping Stable Hill, the old horse farm where he grew up, becomes impossible. Oscar hires Jeffrey Stokes, a slick-looking real estate broker with a roll-up-his-sleeves work ethic, to get it on the market.
Russell White manages the day-to-day at Stable Hill. Russ had loved Oscar’s dad like a father, and took on even more responsibility when the old man fell ill. He is shocked and saddened by Oscar’s decision to sell.
All three men have a stake in Stable Hill, and it’s not long before they start to invest in one another too. But their complicated relationship doesn’t make having to sell Stable Hill any easier. Will the fragile triad they’re building last when the farm that brought them together is gone?

Post and Bio – Jodi Payne
I’m Jodi Payne and I’m here to introduce you to my contemporary MMM romance, Stable Hill.
When I started writing Stable Hill it was an mm romance about Oscar and Jeffrey. Oscar is a widower and father of four living in suburbia whose own father recently passed away leaving him a farm he can’t afford to keep. Jeffrey is the slick realtor that Oscar hires to sell the farm for him. The book was about these two men on either side of a business transaction, and how they fall in love and reconcile their differences on how, and to whom, to sell the farm.
But every horse farm has to have a manager, right? That man is Russell White. Russ is young, on his own. He’s also attached to the horses so you can imagine how he feels about Oscar’s decision to sell the farm, and Jeffrey’s desire to get a good price for it, especially if it means losing his job.
As happens with characters sometimes, Russ let me know as I was writing an early scene with the three of them that he’d had a crush on Oscar since they’d first met, which was a couple of months after Oscar lost his husband to cancer. Russ obviously knew Oscar was gay, but Oscar was grieving, and the timing wasn’t right at all so nothing ever came of it.
And that’s how I ended up writing my very first ménage. It was more than a little challenging. I got lots of feedback on it and worked hard to make it fun/hot/emotional/real all those things you want in a romance without glossing over the mechanics of making a triad work. Some things they try work great, other things don’t. But you know if it’s me it’s going to be hot, and you’re going to get your HEA.
