Description: Everyone in Bay Mignon knows the Truitts are white-trash bad news, generations of moon-shiners and drug runners, and none more so than handsome Bolt Truitt. Rumor insists some of the fifteen years he's been away were spent in prison. Cameron Fontaine knows that's true. But he also knows the town doesn't know the real Bolt. Cameron does. He's loved Bolt since they were both kids, just discovering life and each other. Even though fate ripped them apart, Cameron never stopped believing in Bolt, never stopped loving him. And his heart swears Bolt's different, the drug dealing left in the past. No matter his other sins, Bolt has never lied to Cameron. Until now. Evidence, words from Bolt's own lips, shatter Cameron's trust and his heart. Still, a lifetime of love, even separated for so long, can't just be set aside. Though he can't trust Bolt any more, Cameron will risk everything to see his lover safe...even his life... Genres: Gay / Contemporary / Action / Adventure

"5 Stars!...Excellent. The characters are interesting, the writing is first-rate, and the plot is compelling...Besides some colorful town folks and two attractive and intriguing leading men, this story is a great ride. I was invested in Cameron's journey of rediscovering his love for Bolt and then his pain, anger, and devastation at circumstances and events. The ending was a heart-stopping climax with guns, drugs, and police. It was a difficult ending to pull off but the authors did it with such apparent ease I was amazed...This is a great tale of romance and love. I highly recommend it."--Matthew, Rainbow Reviews
"4 Nymphs!...A whirlwind of action set in sultry Southern Alabama. Bolt and Cameron's love is the kind to transcend countless years, and when they're together, it's crystal clear how much these two men mean to each other...There are a lot of twists, and the last was one I couldn't help but grin at. I wanted to cheer for them both. I can't say much more without giving anything away...The setting was perfect, me being a Southern boy myself. And the title just had me grinning: I love the song of the same name (by Steve Earle). Kudos to the authors for a great, exciting, and sexy read."--Satyr Vael, Literary Nymphs Reviews
"4.5 Stars!...Another well-written, well-paced story from the writing partnership of T.D. McKinney and Terry Wylis...The characterizations were very well done...gives the reader thrills, chills and excitement as it reaches its crescendo and just when you think you have solved Bolt Truitt you find out that the ride is not quite over. If you're looking for a story that's exciting, with engaging characters, a terrific plot and lots of atmosphere because of the location, I highly recommend Copperhead Road, which I couldn't put down. Above all this is a tender love story between two men who just want to be together."--Wave, Reviews By JesseWave
"4 Angels!...T. D. McKinney and Terry Wylis give us a tale of love and redemption set in the Gulf Coast region of Mobile, Alabama. This story is well written and will capture the reader's interest with both emotion and action. Ms. McKinney and Ms. Wylis mix small-town life with the ugly world of drug trafficking in a manner that feels very real. What starts out looking like small-time drug dealing develops into something much more sinister, and of course the heroes of this story are mixed up right in the middle of it. This story contrasts the joy of the heroes' reunion with the threat that Bolt's illegal activities bring to their relationship and their lives. While the twist at the end is not unexpected, it is definitely welcome, because we all love a happy ending."--Whitney, Fallen Angel Reviews
"You can't save him."
The hell I can't. Rebellion roiled hot and burning in Cameron's stomach as he watched the sheriff walk back to a tired-looking patrol car just as Bolt came out of the diner. Bolt's pale eyes followed the car down the street for several long seconds on his way to the truck. Cameron expected the anger or derision to continue, but Bolt just sighed. "He's right, you know. Whatever he said, it's most likely true and you really shouldn't be trying to hold on so tight right now. You could get hurt and I'd never forgive myself."
The fury blazed. That this town and all the towns and cities before had pushed Bolt to the point he believed himself as bad as they thought him turned Cameron's vision flaming orange around the edges. The rebellion in his gut boiled up. "He's not right. And whoever else said whatever you're thinking wasn't right either." He clenched his teeth so hard his jaw ached. Coons and all those wonderfully sympathetic bastards weren't going to take Bolt away from him. It had happened once; separating them, ripping away half Cameron's soul. He wouldn't live like that again.
"I won't stay away." Cameron glared, half furious with Bolt for giving in. "You have two and a half days. Then you're mine and I don't give a rat's ass what anyone thinks about it or how damned dangerous being with you might be."
God, Bolt looked good raking a slim-fingered hand through that curtain of hair. Confused but gloriously appealing. And he was Cameron's, even if the concept was more than Bolt could wrap his mind around just yet.
"Okay, look. The subtle approach ain't working, so I'm just going to lay it out. Yes, I asked for two and a half days. But, Cameron, it's going to take a hell of a lot longer than that if I have to be watching your ass as well." His eyes begged for understanding. "You do not want to be around the people I'm dealing with. And they sure as hell aren't going to want you poking around. What part of real, gun-toting, knife-wielding, kill-you-as-soon-as-look-at-you, actual danger am I not getting across?"
Cameron's teeth ground against each other, anger unabated, raging all the more that such people formed part of Bolt's life. "I get it. Alright! You have your damned time. But when it's done, you're out of this, if I have to take care of it myself. I will load your extremely sexy ass on the next plane to China if I have to. Guns and knives or not. You are going to be with me, damn it."
Bolt stared at Cameron for a long moment before setting his takeout box in the cab of the truck though the window and opening his arms. "God, you are something else. Come here and kiss me enough to get me through two and a half days. Then go home and work on your office complex before I get you fired."
Cameron marched straight into the embrace he wanted more than he could ever articulate and did his best to brand Bolt with his kiss all over again, not caring who saw.
He'd wait, but he'd make damn sure Bolt had plenty to think on and remember for the next sixty hours. He grabbed a double handful of that nearly perfect ass and squeezed. "You go on back to Copperhead Road or wherever you need to go and get this done. I want you in my bed."
Bolt's smile might just sustain Cameron that long as well. "No finer place to be."
