Welcome to the book blitz for
Depths of Lake
by Keary Taylor! 

Depths of Lake by Keary Taylor 
(The McCain Saga #3) 
Publication date: October 14th 2014 
Genres: New Adult, Romance

It was another day at the ranch, training horses and working fifteen hour days. And then the last person I ever expected showed up. Lake McCain: a Marine, tall, ripped—and the best friend of my dead fiancé. Cal died to save Lake, and now Lake claims that he carries a debt to me that he can never repay.

I wanted to brush him off. But then my mom, the manager of the ranch, went and hired him. We spend hours working together with the horses. Lake doesn’t say much. He’s layered and dark and he tries to seem shallow and simple. But he isn’t. There are things under his surface that matter. He works, quiet and strong, and never once lets me down.

Until he confesses that he may be falling in love with me. I can’t deny that there is something between us. But a relationship? I just can’t. I’ve used up all my chances at love. My past relationships have ended in death or disaster, and now I have to live with all of that.

I’m Riley James, and there are depths to Lake—depths to myself—that I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand.

The McCain Saga
PLAYING IT KALE (January 20, 2014)

“Thank you for this,” I say, my voice small and quiet. “This was all you. You didn’t have 

to, and no one asked. But you did it. And for that, I’m grateful.”

Lake slides his hands into his pockets and takes a few slow steps toward me. His eyes drop 

to the ground at our feet. “You know, for a long time, I’ve felt like I didn’t really matter. If that 

makes any sense. Being in the Marines helped some. But you know that feeling of emptiness?” 

he looks up at me, his eyes opening up in a way that I can see. And I do know. “It was always 

there. But being here lately? It’s changed that. I love what we do here. I love working 

the ranch and the long days and the feeling that I’m doing something good. That I’m doing 

something important.”

He takes two more steps toward me. He’s close enough that I can smell him now. The 

sweat of the day. The scent of his shampoo from this morning. And something that is so Lake 

that it sends my head spinning.

“But it’s not just the ranch and the work, Riley,” he says quietly. His voice is low and 

warm, just like the day outside. “It’s you, too. When I’m around you, I feel like I matter.”

Something builds inside of me, something that resembles a thousand hooves beating across 

the fields at sunrise. 

One slow, carefully thought out step at a time, he closes the space between us. He places a 

hand on the wall on either side of my head, boxing me in. His eyes study my face. My cheeks, 

my nose, my lips. His face is so close. 

Something in my blood jumps to life, and I’m staring at his mouth.

“What’s holding you back, Riley?” he finally says. His voice is low and rough. And there’s 

a mountain of unspoken words behind it. “Why won’t you let yourself go?”

Keary Taylor grew up along the foothills of the Rocky Mountains where she started creating imaginary worlds and daring characters who always fell in love. She now resides on a tiny island in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and their two young children. She continues to have an overactive imagination that frequently keeps her up at night. She is the author of THE EDEN TRILOGY, the FALL OF ANGELS trilogy, and WHAT I DIDN'T SAY. To learn more about Keary and her writing process, please visit
