Interview with Mary J. McCoy-Dressel

Why did you write this book?
Some readers wanted to see one of the characters from previous books in the Bull Rider Series get his own happy ending. After careful consideration, I chose to write this third book. While not only giving the hero and heroine of this series another book, I figured out a way to write his story right alongside theirs.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Honestly, I have to say that I love reading what I write—cowboys and western romance—97% of the time I read contemporary. This doesn’t mean I never read other genres because I do, depending on what the story is about, or if it is a favorite author outside of the western genre.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
This is difficult because I love so many fictional book characters. I hope it’s okay to go with a TV character instead—the one and only Duncan MacLeod from the Highlander series! One reason I call him my favorite character from fiction is for his tenacity and courage, not to mention he’s doggone sexy.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m publishing another western romance in October 2016, which is Book #1 in a brand new spin-off series. A second book in this new series will be published sometime in 2017. Plus, I’m currently writing Book #4 in the Double Dutch Ranch Series.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Four years later, Velia and Caulder finish up another year of bull riding. They settle into their comfy abode on the McCutchen Ranch in the snowy Allegheny Mountains to celebrate the Christmas season with a houseful of guests. La vita e bella! But why does their happily-ever-after have to come with an expiration date? Without warning, their most chilling nightmare comes true. An innocent misunderstanding, and a startling realization discovered too late—puts their contented little family at risk.\
On top of everything else, watching a new love bloom between two of the McCutchen guests, isn’t part of their agenda. Reece “Foley” Wilson, a former teammate, comes into contact with Velia’s cousin at the last show of the season and again while visiting for the holiday. Grown up and feisty, Natale Valente-Armano fell in love with this cowboy as a lovesick teen. Now, life has changed for both of them. How will they handle the unfamiliar thoughts and urges overtaking them? And, how will la famiglia respond to this unexpected romance?
A little Christmas magic will be a welcome guest at Love House, but regardless if it arrives or not…during this bittersweet interlude—Velia and Caulder dare their happily-ever-after to be anything less than, “forever.”
