Kermit Flail–November Style!

Okay–so we’re at November now, and I’m not sure how to deal. It’s the eleventh month of… well, I don’t want to talk about 2017 right now. I’m just really glad it hasn’t been worse and my nearest and dearest are doing okay and we are all here to celebrate another Kermit Flail.
Zoom boy’s birthday is right around the corner, Thanksgiving is right after that and OMG, I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M GETTING PEOPLE FOR CHRISTMAS!
But other than that–it’s all groovy! We’ve got some great books from some great authors–Sylvia Violet, Anne Barwell, Andy Gallo and Anyta Sunday, and Louisa Masters– all authors new to the flail, but I’m so happy to have them! Kermit Flail is all about finding new things and I hope you all enjoy!
Also– I’ve got Familiar Angel, which only recently came out, and, available for pre-sale now, my Christmas novella, Regret Me Not, and since I let my gooey, sentimental side come out for Christmas, that’s always a fun event!
Oh! Speaking of my gooey sentimental side… I know a lot of readers start reading me AT Christmas, and I’ve got a number of “unattached” Christmas novellas floating around from Christmas past. This year, DSP and I decided to gather those up together and put them in a book–an Amy Lane Christmas will be available on December 25th as a paperback, (and possibly an e-book bundle?) and it has all of those “unattached” stories in it that people have gotten so fond of. So, if you like paperbacks for your keeper shelf and these stories have been on your “don’t delete” Kindle list, here’s a chance to have both worlds. And if you liked one or two of these stories and think you want the whole batch, well, again, here’s your chance. 
So folks, enjoy the new authors–we’ve got some great stuff. And by all means, gird your loins and set yourself up for the holidays, cause they’re just around the corner.
And enjoy November–like these stories and these authors if they’re new to you, you never DO know when good things are going to be coming around the corner–

Lace-Covered Compromise

by Sylvia Violet

Adam Kingston expects to inherit his father’s multinational conglomerate. When he finds out half of it went to Nate Thomas—an annoying man whose dreams for Kingston Corp.’s future clash with Adam’s need to stave off financial disaster—Adam is furious. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to wrest control of Kingston Corp. from Nate.

Nate may be soft-spoken, but he refuses to be swayed by Adam’s arrogant demands. When Nate accidentally drops a pair of his lacy panties in front of Adam, there’s no mistaking Adam’s interest. Nate hadn’t realized Adam was bisexual, but now that his secret is out, Nate is willing to use Adam’s lust against him if it means protecting the welfare of the company he loves.

For Adam and Nate, hatred and desire are closely linked. Their inability to compromise threatens the company and could expose their tightly held secrets. But as they work together to develop a plan to save Kingston Corp., they begin to realize there might be more to their relationship than anger and lust.

When a bank robbery escalates into a dangerous situation, Donovan must embrace a part of himself he can no longer ignore in order to save a future that might never have the chance to exist.

Ethan learns that often the person you’re looking for is not the one you find. But have he and Donovan both realized that too late…?

Jay Walker has two wishes: to perform the play of his dreams alongside his best friend at Wellington’s Tory Street Theatre, and to meet that special someone. Someone he’d go to the ends of the earth for. Someone who might only exist in fairy tales.

When Jay meets accordion busker Lethe Cross, it’s like living a dream come true. Lethe’s music captivates Jay, and he resolves to meet the man who plays so beautifully. But then he discovers Lethe’s life is more like a nightmare. The phrase “down on his luck” can’t begin to cover it. Determined to help, Jay does some snooping for answers—and winds up on the wrong end of a centuries-old curse. The good news is there’s a way to break it. The bad news is it might cost Jay his life.

The Bunny and the Billionaire

by Louisa Masters
Hardworking Australian nurse Ben Adams inherits a substantial sum and decides to tour Europe. In Monaco, the home of glamour and the idle rich, he meets French billionaire playboy LĂ©o Artois. After getting off on the wrong foot—as happens when one accuses a stranger of being part of the Albanian mafia—their attraction blazes. LĂ©o, born to the top tier of society, has never known limits, and Ben, used to budgeting every cent, finds it difficult to adjust to not only LĂ©o’s world, but also the changes wealth brings to his own life.

As they make allowances for each other’s foibles, Ben gradually appreciates the finer things, and LĂ©o widens his perspective. They both know one thing: this is not a typical holiday romance and they’re not ready to say goodbye.

Regret Me Not

by Amy Lane
Pierce Atwater used to think he was a knight in shining armor, but then his life fell to crap. Now he has no job, no wife, no life—and is so full of self-pity he can’t even be decent to the one family member he’s still speaking to. He heads for Florida, where he’s got a month to pull his head out of his ass before he ruins his little sister’s Christmas.

Harold Justice Lombard the Fifth is at his own crossroads—he can keep being Hal, massage therapist in training, flamboyant and irrepressible to the bones, or he can let his parents rule his life. Hal takes one look at Pierce and decides they’re fellow unicorns out to make the world a better place. Pierce can’t reject Hal’s overtures of friendship, in spite of his misgivings about being too old and too pissed off to make a good friend.

As they experience everything from existential Looney Tunes to eternal trips to Target, Pierce becomes more dependent on Hal’s optimism to get him through the day. When Hal starts getting him through the nights too, Pierce must look inside for the knight he used to be—before Christmas becomes a doomsday deadline of heartbreak instead of a celebration of love.
