2020 Kermit Flail! Here’s to a Bright and Shiny New Year!


Oh my word, 2019 could not end soon enough!

And with the New Year comes a new resolution to read more, and hey, do I have the solution to your problems right here!

Starting with Edie Montreaux, a dear friend of mine, and the friend of another dear friend, who sat me down at a Yaoi-Con one year and said, “How do you do what you do?” Folks, she took notes–and now here we have her second novel from MLM Press, and I am so excited for her!  It looks like fantasy at its finest, and it’s got a “enemy of my enemy is my lover” kind of vibe, so definitely check it out!

Moving on we’ve got the very prolific–and of course, fantastic–Kim Fielding, who has another addition to her “Love is not…” Series. This one is for us angst whores out there, and I’ve read the first two in this series, and they were delicious and painful and ever so real. Kim is the mistress of making her characters hurt so good (emotionally), so if that’s your kind of candy, I can’t think of a better brand!

Next, we’ve got E.J. Russell, M/M’s answer to Mary Janice Davison. She writes quirky, funny, delightful paranormal romance that makes you laugh and sigh at the same time. This time she’s tackling werewolves, and it looks adorable–and sometimes we really need adorable, right?

And finally we’ve got the second book in my Search and Rescue series, Preston and Damien’s book, Silent Heart. I’m currently writing Glen and Cash’s book, and loving every minute of it–and I’m pretty sure Spencer (whom we meet at the end of Preston and Damie’s book) is going to have his own story to tell.

Either way, I hope you all enjoy Preston and Damien–they had some seriously fantastic moments, and boy, do I love writing action/adventure romance!

So there you go– four different flavors of romance for all you romance lovers out there. I hope your New Year is starting off right, and may an entire year of reading be yours to savor!

The King’s Physician 

by Edie Montreaux 

Devlin was the King’s Physician until a blood mage siphoned Devlin’s magic and used it to wipe the kingdom’s memories. Sir Eldrich, his replacement, has protection against Filvane’s spells, but he only knows the whispered rumors: Devlin, the former King’s Physician, stole King Korgon’s crown on his coronation day.

Once Eldrich is appointed King’s Physician, Devlin notices a decline in King Korgon’s health and wonders if Eldrich is to blame. When Eldrich nearly bleeds to death on Devlin’s doorstep from grievous sword wounds, they’re thrown together in a race to keep King Korgon alive. They question the other’s allegiance to their king, but it will take their combined efforts and trust to stop Filvane from destroying Korgon and the entire realm of the living. In the end, these two physicians may have more in common than their titles. They may even fall in love.

Love Has No Direction

By Kim Fielding

Yet another series of poor decisions lands Parker Levin back in his mother’s house, working at her coffee shop, and feeling like a failure. Then he learns his ex-boyfriend has died by suicide and things go from bad to worse. When he meets a handsome stranger, he doesn’t have much left to lose. 

Ten years ago Wesley Anker made a grave mistake. Since then he’s lived in near isolation, supporting himself by making custom furniture and only rarely connecting with other people. When he attempts to make amends, he encounters Parker, a beautiful and colorful young man, and he agrees to Parker’s impulsive request to join him.  

Together, Parker and Wes find quick friendship and fierce attraction. But Wes’s past demons haunt his footsteps, and Parker’s struggle to plan a future has him stumbling through life. Then they uncover evidence that suggests Parker’s ex’s death might not have been a straightforward suicide, and every path seems to lead to dead ends and destruction. Can Parker and Wes find their way to lasting love when the route is hidden?

Howling on Hold

By E.J. Russell
Sometimes it’s harder to teach a young dog new tricks.
That’s why werewolves embark on a Howling: a three-year rite of passage in which they’re sent to a group residence to wrestle with their wolfy instincts and assimilate into the Wider World. But Tanner Araya’s Howling is almost over, and he could be called back to his remote pack at any moment. His twenty-first birthday might be his last chance to act on his strongest instinct and finally kiss Chase Denney.
Chase is RA at the Howling residence affectionately dubbed “the Doghouse,” and he takes his job seriously. So seriously that when he realized he was developing feelings for a resident, he forced himself to keep Tanner at a distance. But now that Tanner’s twenty-one, he’s not Chase’s charge any longer. They could be friends or—if Chase is lucky—something more. At least until they both return to their home packs for good, as tradition demands.
It would take a miracle for them to get together—especially when the other Doghouse werewolves insist on “helping.”
Warning: Many Frisbees are harmed in this story, forgiveness is not always easier than permission, and the five-second rule does not apply.

Silent Heart

by Amy Lane

Search and Rescue: Book Two
Dog wrangler Preston Echo has been in love with his brother’s best friend, copilot, and business partner since high school—and Damien Ward knew it. As Preston grew into a stunning, hard-willed man, Damien began to dream of Preston too. 

Then Damien almost died in a helicopter crash. While his physical wounds are slowly healing, the blows to his self-confidence and goodwill are almost worse. His body is broken and he’s afraid to fly—how can Preston love him now? 

When Preston’s brother goes on a search-and-rescue mission and disappears in an earthquake zone in Mexico, Preston and Damien are thrown together in an effort to find him and bring him back. Preston’s merciless honesty—and relentless passion—may leverage Damien into his bed, but can Damien overcome his fears to allow himself to stay there?
