Hey, guess who’s on my blog today? The incredible Grace Duncan. That’s who. And her characters Finley and Tanner.
Thanks so much to the awesome Brynn for hosting me today! Without further ado, let’s get back to Finley and Tanner!
Do you have any bad habits? If so, what are they, and do you plan to get rid of them?
Tanner shrugs. I don’t know that I have many bad habits. Finley snickers. What? Finley shakes his head, trying to look innocent and failing. All right, then, what do you think my bad habits are?
Finley smirks. You mean like not picking up your dirty clothes? Or not doing laundry until the last minute? Letting the coffee creamer sit on the counter?
Tanner glares, though there’s no heat to it. I don’t do those. Finley doesn’t answer, simply waits. Tanner sighs. Okay. Maybe I do… some of that. But you’re not much better.
I never said I wasn’t. Finley grins. I’m just as guilty of the clothes and laundry thing. But I do put the coffee creamer away!
You don’t use it.
Finley laughs. Well, I still don’t leave it out! I put it away for you!
Tanner rolls his eyes. Okay fine. We’re working on the clothes thing, though. We’re just both still kind of in… college student mode with it.
That is so disgustingly true. Finley chuckles. We’ll get there eventually.
Tanner grins. Maybe. By the time I’m alpha.
Maybe we’ll just have to learn how to hide it better so the pack members don’t know.
Tanner laughs. That’d work.
If you were to gain an obscenely large sum of money (via an inheritance, a lawsuit, a lottery, or anything else) what would you do with it?
That one’s too easy. Finley smiles. For either of us. He looks at Tanner.
Tanner nods. It’d go into the pack, invest in the leatherworking business, help build houses for them.
We might travel a little. I’ve never been anywhere, really. Finley purses his lips. Well, aside from Oregon. But there are so many amazing places just here in the US.
I’d like to do that. I haven’t traveled much, either. Tanner takes Finley’s hand. So, yeah, we’d set some aside to travel, but I think most would go back into the pack.
What would you wish for if you found a genie?
The knowledge of how to mate in wolf form. Tanner looks completely deadpan but Finley laughs hard enough to hold his stomach.
Oh my gods, yes. We still haven’t figured that out.
Tanner grins. Um… I think I’d ask for my best friend back. I still see Eric now and again. He’s still in the forests of our pack lands in wolf form. I’d love for him to come back and be with us.
Finley nods. That was tough. I can’t imagine if I’d seen that. If it’d happened to Jamie or something.
Other than that—and I know this sounds corny—but other than that, I don’t know what I’d ask for. I have a mate that loves me, a family who cares about—extending to my pack. We’ve got a good home, I make good money. Tanner shrugs. We’re very luck.
We are. Finley smiles. I dunno, maybe the answers to the final exams? He laughs. But truthfully, Tanner’s right. We’re lucky. We don’t need much.

Finley Cooper is tired of waiting. He’s spent the last two years, waiting for his destined mate to be ready to claim him. In deference to human laws, he’s agreed to put it off until he was eighteen. But now he is and his mate has a new set of excuses. Finley doesn’t understand it any more than his wolf does. And Finley’s beginning to wonder if Tanner really wants him or if fate made a mistake.
Tanner Pearce wants nothing more than to claim his mate. But Finley’s age worries him. He’ll never forget what happened when his best friend mated at Finley’s age, only to have that mate end up feeling trapped and breaking their bond. While rare, it can happen, and the fallout Tanner witnessed as his best friend tried to deal with the break would haunt him for years.
If that isn’t bad, when the future alpha of the Forbes pack claims his mate, it’s traditionally a public event. Neither Tanner’s nor Finley’s parents understand Tanner’s reticence over either issue, but Tanner is sure claiming Finley this soon is a recipe for disaster. However, Finley has had enough and when Finley threatens to find someone who will claim him if Tanner doesn’t, Tanner realizes he’s going to have to come to terms with his fears or risk losing his mate forever.

Grace Duncan grew up with a wild imagination. She told stories from an early age – many of which got her into trouble. Eventually, she learned to channel that imagination into less troublesome areas, including fanfiction, which is what has led her to writing male/male erotica.
A gypsy in her own right, Grace has lived all over the United States. She has currently set up camp in East Texas with her husband and children – both the human and furry kind.
As one of those rare creatures who loves research, Grace can get lost for hours on the internet, reading up on any number of strange and different topics. She can also be found writing fanfiction, reading fantasy, crime, suspense, romance and other erotica or even dabbling in art.
