Folks, we have THE BEST *kermit flail* this month!
I mean, remember last month? One person on the dance floor, shining? Well, that was pretty awesome, but now? We’ve got a whole damned party!
And who best to start a party than the lovely, pixilated, amazeballs Miss Tara Lain, who’s new release Winter’s Wolf looks like so much fun!
So, ladies and gentlemen, let’s get this party started with Miss Ta-ra LAIN!
by Tara Lain
Thane was raised on the two cardinal rules of werewolf existence: don’t reveal
yourself to humans under penalty of death, and there’s no such thing as a gay
werewolf. It’s no surprise when his father drags him from his wild life in
remote Canada back to Connecticut to meet his old pack in hopes it will
persuade Winter to abandon his love of sex with human males. Of course Dad’s hopes
are dashed when they come face-to-face with the gay werewolves in the Harker
takes one look at FBI agent, Matt Partridge, and decides bird is his favorite
food. Partridge is embroiled in an investigation into drug dealing and the
death of a fellow agent. He can’t let himself get distracted by the young,
platinum-haired beast, but then Winter proves invaluable in the search for
clues, a move that winds them both up in chains and facing imminent death.
Winter quickly learns his father’s motives are questionable, the pack alphas
are a bunch of pussies, humans aren’t quite what they seem, and nothing in the
forests of Connecticut is pure except love.
Now, this next offering from Miss Annabeth Albert is from the Portland Heat series, and having been to Portland? I can’t imagine a more awesome, offbeat, amazing and imaginative place to set a series. (Besides– Grimm is set there, and I’m saying!) Anyway– this one is set in a coffee shop, because, wonderful, and everybody give it up for Miss Annabeth Albert and her adorable book, Served Hot-– YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!

In Portland, Oregon, the only thing hotter than the coffee shops, restaurants, and bakeries are the hard-working men who serve it up—hot, fresh, and ready to go—with no reservations…

Everybody please welcome Ms. Jaycee Edwards and Helena Stone to *Kermit Flail* and give a hearty welcome and a big time SQUEEEE!!! to their new release, Strangers in the Night!

knocking at his door but invites him in despite his reservations. A nightmare
reveals Slade’s deep-seated emotional issues, and Callum knows he needs to get
creative if he’s going to help Slade leave the past behind.
man is prepared for the feelings Slade’s introduction into the world of BDSM

will remain forever strangers in the night.

Tim Myers is the flamboyant and overly fastidious owner of the adult shop Little Earthquakes. In his spare time, he moonlights as a sub for his friend’s BDSM classes, and while he’d love to find a Dom to cater to his domestic servitude kink, he’s wary of exposing his body and his heart. When Jae Seong comes into Tim’s shop and asks him for help with a wax play demo, Tim is turned off by the idea. Jae is nothing if not persistent, though. He’s a skilled Dom and soon finds out why Tim is so protective of his body, his neck, and his heart. Over a series of play dates, the two grow close, and it dawns on Tim that he might be looking at a match made for collaring.
So here she is, with TWO offerings, and one of them is giving 10% to a very special cause that I’ll talk about in a second. So ladies and gents, let’s give it up for Miss Felice Stevens! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAAY!!!
by Felice Stevens
Josh Rosen had everything until it was revealed much of his world was a lie. Forced to re-evaluate his life, Josh gives up his career and returns home to New York City to care for his beloved grandmother. What Josh didn’t figure on was an attraction to a man who on the surface, appears to be exactly like the life Josh chose to leave behind.
As Micah struggles with the reality of his grandmother’s illness, the bond these two share deepens, as Josh helps Micah heal, then open his heart. Micah discovers there is more to life than work, control and success. Josh is in deep but has yet to tell Micah who he really is.
When the fight for the hospital’s head of surgery turns ugly, Josh’s past and present collide. Micah must let go of the past and accept who he is, if his life is going to move forward.
Life is full of surprises, and as both Micah and Josh learn, love can happen whether you plan for it or not.
*NOTE– Felice is donating 10% of her proceeds from Memories of the Heart to a project very near and dear to our community’s heart. Christy Duke, who is… AMAZING– just a person of such warmth and life and fantasticalness I have no words for her, has been an active, vital reader in this little corner of the net for a very long time. Her husband has just been diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer, and while he’s undergoing treatment, there are some things we can do to make their lives just a little easier. Christy has set up a funding account that explains it better, but if you haven’t met her, all I can tell you is that these are two people who make the world better. Anything you can do to help will be appreciated.
Her YouCare account is HERE and even if you can’t donate? Just love and prayers and hopes for the future. Christy deserves the best.

The betrayal by the foster brother he’d worshiped, taught Lucas Conover never to trust or believe in anyone. Living a solitary life couldn’t free him of the nightmare of his former life; it reinforced his belief that he would never fall in love. When the death of one of his clients forces him to work closely with Dr. Jordan Peterson, he meets a person whose suffering exceeds his own. Though Jordan rejects his effort to help, something within Luke pushes him discover more about the first man to ever get under his skin.
Okay– I’ve got to fess up. I sort of love this next book. I don’t get to read nearly as many books as I really want to, but this one? This one I got to beta read in parts as it was being written.
Ashlyn Kane and her co-writer, Morgan James, write the funniest, hottest, cleverest, most angsty-gutwrenching, awesomest sex scenes in the world.
’nuff said. Seriously. This is a fun, painful, awesome book, and you will love it! Everybody, give it up for Ms. Ashlyn Kane and Morgan James for a wonderful read, and let’s welcome Winging It to *Kermit Flail* in style! YAYAYAYAYAYAAYAAAYAAYAY!!!

& Morgan James
Gabe Martin has a simple life plan: get into the NHL and win the Stanley Cup. It doesn’t include being the first out hockey player or, worse, getting involved with one of his teammates. But things change.
Dante Baltierra is Gabe’s polar opposite—careless, reckless… shameless. But his dedication to the sport is impressive, and Gabe can overlook a lot of young-and-stupid in the name of great hockey. And Dante has a superlative ass in a sport filled with superlative asses.
Before Gabe can figure out how to deal, a tabloid throws him out of his comfortable closet into a brand-new world. Amid the emotional turmoil of invasive questions, nasty speculation, and on- and off-ice homophobia, his game suffers.
Surprisingly, it’s Dante who drags him out of it—and then drags him into something else. Nothing good can come of secretly sleeping with a teammate, especially one Gabe has feelings for. But with their captain out with an injury, a rookie in perpetual need of a hug, and the race to make the playoffs for the first time since 1995, Gabe has a lot on his plate.
He can’t be blamed for forgetting that nothing stays secret forever.
And everybody knows what’s coming next.
My Little Goddess, in all her re-covered, re-edited glory, goes live on Tuesday– and I’m so excited.
When I turned her loose on the world before, I watched amazon.com like a hawk. I have to admit– the first review (long since removed) was mine. I knew what the other books– the non-self-published books– had on their pages. I knew there were reviews skillfully written, that would tip a reader toward a book or away, depending on their tastes, and I just didn’t know how to get one of those reviews on the page.
But it’s been ten years– and she’s been reviewed plenty, sometimes sweetly, sometimes savagely, but she’s not a stranger to critical mass anymore.
So when my first blog review came out this time? I was trepidatious– oh please let my m/m crew love my Little Goddess too. And they did. And I can’t even… *flails* Yeah. I’m so happy. She’s back, she’s gorgeous, and she’s badass.
I think she’ll do okay 🙂
So folks, don’t forget to check her out at DSP Productions and on Amazon. And her first blog tour stop (and a chance for a free copy) has started already here at Books Make Me Happy (and bless Jennifer, whose blog it is!) and by all means check out all the dates listed:
And don’t forget to check out her first review of the new tour, at The Novel Approach.
Cause baby, she’s back. Holy Goddess, Merciful God, let her not suck!
