What is one thing readers might not know about you?
Marie: My paternal grandfather was a cattle rancher who bred and raised Clydesdales as a hobby. (He even sold a couple to Budweiser, over the years.) He used them to feed his cattle every single day, long after most ranchers had switched to tractors or trucks. The horses pulled a flatbed wagon most of the year, and a sleigh in the winter. As a kid, I loved to go feed the cows with him. My grandmother would bundle me up and set me on the hay bails. My grandfather didn’t even need a second hand because the horses were trained to verbal cues, so he could just tie the reins to the front of the wagon and steer them verbally while he tossed the hay out. I’m very sad my daughter will never experience a true horse-drawn sleigh ride with him.
“Oh yay, the ’rents,” Billy muttered, angry as he had been perpetually since Avery had separated their finances.
This is my third foray into the world of Bluewater Bay. I’m developing a real affinity for this close-knit town, propelled to fame by the cult TV show Wolf’s Landing, and in particular the men who meet and fall in love there. In this latest book, it’s easy to see why Amy Lane is such a popular author in the genre of male/male romance. With her brand of warmth and sexiness, she has written a novel that is as authentic as it is touching, remaining true to life while fostering the belief that everyone deserves a happy ending.
Cal McCorkle has lived in Bluewater Bay his whole life. He works two jobs to support a brother with a laundry list of psychiatric diagnoses and a great-uncle with Alzheimer’s, and his personal life amounts to impersonal hookups with his boss. He’s got no time, no ambition, and no hope. All he has is family, and they’re killing him one responsibility at a time.
