Reba Kane, a sexually active member of the group called the Compassionate Women of Mercy – women who provide free, one-time sexual relief for lonely new men in the community – is at odds with Madam Millicent, the owner of the only stockbrokerage/brothel in East Layover, Montana. M/M is the sister of Sheriff Sundown. Reba is the Sheriff’s deputy, clerk, and gofer. Sundown won’t fire her, even though M/M claims that the Compassionate Women prevent an honest whorehouse from making a profit.
Reba falls hard for Rance Woodcock, a tall man she meets in the bar. Rance, who proves to be a hot dancer, takes her to his room for marvelous sex, but when Rance leaves his workplace without telling her, she fears that their affair may be over.
Reba’s hilarious sexual adventures continue, prompting her to wonder if she will ever be able to settle to one partner. But when Rance returns and sweeps her into his arms, she suddenly finds herself flooded with certainty as to what course her life should take in the future.
