Claire took pride in being rational most of the time, except when it came to Mike. She accepted the promiscuity, the drinking, the cockeyed investment schemes, and the lack of order in his life, until tonight when she was huddled on a stranger’s deck in the rain, with no clothes on, wondering how she was going to get her naked, half-sloshed lover dressed and out of there before the owner returned.

“In Marriage by Fire, Nancy Scott gives us Claire, a young mother with a day job as a caseworker and a husband who prefers men. In crisply written vignettes and poems, the reader cheers Claire on as she fights her way out of the marriage, and in and out of her lovers’ beds. Marriage by Fire is an elegant sexual romp with a heart.” Tina Barry, author of Mall Flower

  
Marriage by Fire is a spicy, unrepentant, and eclectic blend of fiction and poetry that wends a wild path through the thickets of Claire’s divorce, explorations, and experimentations. Amidst passion, confusion, and dishonesty, she searches for a soulmate who has a gentle heart in a complicated world. Does she find him? Read this short, spunky book and find out.” Jane Banning, author of Asparagus Roots
