Everyone can see the mutual attraction between Blaine McKlintock and Spencer Cassidy, except Blaine and Spencer.  However, Blaine is not the only one who can conjure up a wager. Requested to work together as wedding planners, Blaine and Spencer discover that payback can be most rewarding.

A Marrying Man is the sequel to A Betting Man. The key feature of the plot is sexual labels is not a concern, love is love regardless of the sexual pairings. Kent and Terry are ready to take the marriage plunge, so it is only natural to ask their best friends to stand with them as best men. Blaine is Kent’s best friend as well as Spencer is Terry’s best friend. The problem for Blaine and Spencer is not the planning of a wedding, but whether they can work together without conflict between them. Blaine feels guilty for causing a rift between Kent and Terry, while Spencer is still holding a tiny feeling of resentment regarding Blaine’s part in the rift. Blaine has secretly desired Spencer for years; what Blaine did not realize is that Spencer was also attracted to Blaine during their long ago chance meeting. The storyline reflects the misconceptions along with the revelations each man has about the other.

Sandrine Gasq-Dion has created a superbly uplifting entertaining saga. The secondary characters contribute a down-to-earth quality to A Marrying Man. Each character has minuscule flaws that I found humorous as well as endearing. I particularly enjoyed Blaine’s mother.
