Wet in Whispering Cove, by Cathryn Fox
Today I’m speaking with Trent Wilson. Trent is a local firefighter from the small town of Whispering Cove, Maine. He’s also Errol’s grandson. Errol, along with Harold Adair and Byron Mitchell are the town’s rum drinking, card playing, matchmaking trouble makers—men who will go to great lengths to get what they what. But, if not for them Trent might never have gotten back with Katy Wilson, the sweet girl from his past, the same girl who he’s been pining over for the last ten years.
Interviewer: So Trent the first thing I’d like to know is how is married life treating you?
Trent: Katy has made me the happiest guy alive.
Interviewer: From the smile you’re always sporting, I’m inclined to agree. Speaking of Katy’s, how is her cooking show going?
Trent: You know Katy, she’s happiest when she’s cooking up a storm.
Interviewer: Do you help her with menu ideas?
Trent: We’ve been known to experiment with chocolate.
Interviewer: Do you help her create new recipes?
Trent: Creating new…recipes…is the best part of being married.
Interviewer: Okay, on that note, how are things at the firehouse?
Trent: Good, now that granddad and Adam aren’t lighting fires all hours of the night.
Interviewer: How is Adam anyway? Still Whispering Cove’s most eligible bachelor status I presume?
Trent: Yeah, and he’s still a total pain in my ass. Some woman needs to get that guy on a leash.
Interviewer: I think it would take a very special woman to tame that guy. Let’s talk about your grand dad. Has good old Errol been meddling in your affairs?
Trent: Katy and I are married so I think he got what he wanted. Of course he is still ranting on about having great grandbabies before he sails out to sea.
Interviewer: Errol, Harold and Bryon have been doing a lot of whispering lately, do you think they’re up to something?
Trent: Those three have trouble written all over them and they’re always up to something.
Interviewer: So Trent, can you tell us something no one knows about you?
Trent: Yes. But I’m not going to.
Interviewer: So you do have a secret then?
Interviewer: Does this secret have anything to do with yours and Katy’s trip into town and her new ‘easy wear’ wardrobe?
Trent: Are you calling my wife fat?
Interviewer: Ah, no and I’m the one who’s suppose to be asking the question. Okay, moving on then. If your granddads were up to something, who’d you like to see them set up next?
Trent: The guy who’s being a huge pain in my ass.
Interviewer: Adam Collins?
Trent: The one and only.
Interviewer: I’ve noticed the two of you’ve been helping out a lot at the fall festival.
Trent: Errol roped us into it.
Interviewer: The festival draws a big crowd. You never know, maybe Adam will finally find himself a brazen girl who’s ready, willing and able to tame him.
Trent: You never know.
Interviewer: So you think it could happen?
Trent: Let’s just say I think this year’s festival is going to be very...interesting.
Interviewer: You sound like you know something I don’t.
Trent: That would be a first.
Interviewer: I guess there is always a first for everything.
Trent: Sometimes and sometimes there is a sequel, too.
Interviewer: A sequel?
Trent: Yeah, you should come on by the festival to check it out. I guarantee it will be worth your while.
Trent: Believe me, it might be autumn and the leaves might be changing in Whispering Cove but things are going to start heating up again.
Interviewer: I think you really do know something I don’t.
Trent: Then be sure to stop by the festival and find out for yourself. You won’t regret it.
Interviewer: Well when you put it that wow, how can I resist.
Cathryn invites you to come on by as well and check out Burned, Bold and Brazen the sexy sequel to Wild Wet and Wicked in Whispering Cove. As things heat up, and Adam gets more than he bargained for when he agrees to man the kissing booth, the return trip to Whispering cove will be well worth your while. Guaranteed!

Interviewer: Today I’m speaking with Harold Adair. (LOL) It appears you have with you two of Whispering Cove’s most notorious matchmakers. Errol Wilson and Byron Mitchell.
Harold: Never you mind those two barnacle pluckin’ ole goats. Couldn’t shake ‘em if a had a shovel and a bucket of sh—
Interview: Yes, well thank you for joining me.
Harold: My pleasure, lassie.
Interviewer: So how are you these days?
Errol: Onery as a one-legged pirate in a three-legged race.
Harold: Quiet you pond suckin’, baldin’ beachcomber.
Errol: At least I’m not a—
Interviewer: Gentlemen. Gentlemen. (clearing throat) So I hear Andie and Brody tied the knot.
Harold: They sure enough did.
Interviewer: From your generous smile you’re happy with the outcome.
Harold: Got my granddaughter home where she belongs, and with a man who loves her. Me ole heart couldn’t ask for anything more.
Harold: Well, I be hoping to hear the pitter-patter of a little urchin feet in the near future.
Interviewer: And how do Andie and Brody feel about children?
Harold: Well, I can’t say, but the two of them are trying hard enough. If you know what I mean.
Errol/Byron: snicker, snicker
Interviewer: Ooookay. We should probably move on. I hear you’re heading up the booth construction for Whispering Cove’s fall festival.
Harold: That I am with the assistance of Reece McGrath.
Interviewer: Mr. McGrath is Sheriff Brody’s brother?
Harold: Aye, and I swear the lad is as blind as a bat.
Interviewer: Blind? We’re talking about Whispering Cove’s own architect who has a Master’s in Construction Management and a lady-killer smile?
Harold: That be the one. But the lad can’t see what’s right before his face.
Interviewer: Would you care to elaborate?
Harold: Tabatha Taylor. Tabbie’s been nipping at Reece’s heels since she was a wee mite. Following him and her brother around, until she went off to college. She’s back home, and I’ll be jigger if the lass hasn’t grown into a beautiful a woman.
Bryon: Though she’s still a cheeky little chickadee.
Interviewer: She sounds intriguing.
Errol: Bold, but bright as a lighthouse on a moonless night.
Interviewer: Hmmm… You three wouldn’t be thinking of doing a little matchmaking this season?
Harold: Matchmaking? Us?
Bryon: Wouldn’t think of it.
Interview: Gentlemen, that doesn’t sound very convincing.
Harold: (Shrugging) We see what we see.
Errol: Youngsters these days are to involve in their careers and stepping on each other’s toes to see what’s good for them. Sometimes they need an impartial party to open their eyes.
Bryon: And sometimes it takes a helping hand to guide them.
Interviewer: Oh my. It sounds like this could be another interesting season in Whispering Cove.
Harold: Stick around, lassie. Before the end of the festival there be more then autumn leaves falling.
Interviewer: So would you be willing to tell me what the bet is this time?
Harold: Bet? Can’t say I know what you’re talkin’ about.
Interviewer: Yeah. Riight. Okay then, other than Reece McGrath and Tabatha Taylor who will be your other victims.
Harold: Victims? We like to think of the youngsters as projects.
Interviewer: Well, there you have it. If you haven’t read Wild, Wet, and Wicked in Whispering Cove pick it up today at Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Nobles, or Sony. For another dose of matchmaking in Whispering Cove look for Burned, Bold and Brazen in Whispering Cove to be release early next year.
