Please give a warm welcome to Lane Donaldson from Kathie DeNosky’s latest release, Your Ranch…or Mine?
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in five words or less.
[Lane Donaldson] A professional poker playing, psychologist.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in your life?
[Lane Donaldson] When I’m not sitting at a poker table in a high stakes tournament, you can usually find me on the back of my horse, Blue, herding cattle or doing any number of other chores on the Lucky Ace Ranch.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words come to mind when you think of Taylor?
[Lane Donaldson] Beautiful, stubborn, passionate.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What irritates you the most about her?
[Lane Donaldson] Her stubbornness. When she makes her mind up about something, hell will freeze over before she changes it.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?
[Lane Donaldson] I can’t think of anything I would change–not even the trouble I got into when I was in my early teens and ended up at the Last Chance Ranch. That’s where my life took a miraculous turn for the better and I met my foster brothers. I couldn’t think more of those five men if we had the same blood running through our veins.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How do you relax after a hard day working on the ranch?
[Lane Donaldson] I usually read or watch television and on occasion meet one of my brothers at The Broken Spoke Roadhouse over in Beaver Dam for a drink and a few laughs.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?
[Lane Donaldson] That’s a tough question. It would have to be my cell phone or a deck of cards. It’s essential for my brothers to be able to reach me. (Grinning.) And I never know when someone will want to pit their poker playing skills against mine. I wouldn’t want to disappoint them.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share your dreams for the future in five words or less.
[Lane Donaldson] Taylor and a family.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!
About the book:
Know when to hold ’em…
One winning hand of poker and the Lucky Ace ranch was his—half his, at least. The only thing standing in the way of Lane Donaldson making it his permanent home is the ranch’s other owner.
Taylor Scott sure is something fine to look at, but she’s adamant about running the ranch herself. And then she moves in—with him! So Lane challenges Taylor to another game of poker for the ultimate prize—winner takes all.
But who’s to say they can’t have a little fun while they wait for fate to deal their hand….
