Fairy Cakes in Winter Cover/Blurb Reveal!

FAIRY CAKES IN WINTER is coming soon! Mark your calendars for February 16 and check out the incredible cover art by Reese Dante. I’ve been holding on to this one for a couple of weeks and I have to say…I’m in LOVE!

I can’t wait to introduce you to Scott and Theo, the grouchy baker and the eternal optimist! Scott is the first to admit he has a low tolerance for nonsense and might be practical to a fault. He’s been burned before and it’s best to be careful. But for Theo, Scott might be willing to try something new.

FAIRY CAKES IN WINTER is a bisexual, age-gap, grumpy/sunshine MM romance set in jolly old England. Preorder available now. *This is a standalone!

Check out the blurb for FAIRY CAKES IN WINTER below…

A grumpy baker, a quirky ad man, and a recipe for forever…

Scott

So this cute guy sits next to me on the plane and proceeds to talk my ear off for hours. Not good. I don’t like talking and I don’t like strangers. But Theo’s sweet, smart, and sexy—the perfect distraction from business woes and personal worries.

Okay, things got overly friendly, but we’re adults and we know the score. I’m too old, he’s too nice, and we live on different continents. 

Then, out of the blue, he shows up at my bakery with that pretty smile and a list of wacky marketing ideas—like how to make fairy cakes a thing. 

I don’t like fairy cakes. 


But I do like Theo, so…maybe? 

Theo

The new me takes risks. The new me is brave and confident. The new me flirts with hunky, imposing bears on planes while traveling to a foreign country. 

It’s going well, thank you.

However, my plans to do some sightseeing, drink tea, and eat my weight in biscuits every day get derailed when I realize there might be a way to help Scott and prove a few things to myself. 

Don’t worry. I won’t fall for the grumpy baker. No way. He’s complicated and broody and—

Uh oh…it might be too late. Help!  

Fairy Cakes in Winter is a bisexual, age-gap, grumpy/sunshine MM romance featuring a sexy baker, a sunny tourist, and a few dozen fairy cakes!

🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁

Hope your 2023 is going well so far. I’m off to a decent start here. The holidays were nice, we have an empty nest again, and…our puppy has calmed down a little bit. Yay! Here’s a couple of recent pics of George. As you can tell, he’s going to be a big boy!

Also, I want to thank you for the amazing response to The Humbug Holiday. If you loved Joe and Cam’s story, be sure to check out the FREE short story, A Humbug New Year, here!

Happy Reading!

Lane…and George xo

Happy New Year! And A Humbug Surprise!

Happy New Year! I want to take a moment to thank you for reading my books and listening to my audios. I appreciate your enthusiasm and support. You rock!

2022 was a big year for me. I traveled a ton, started the Baxter series, wrapped up the last two books in the Script Club Series, added to Matt and Aaron’s story with Better Than Home, participated in the Heart2Heart Charity Anthology, and released a bestselling holiday story, The Humbug Holiday. Woohoo!!

AND…I just published Following the Rules, book one in the Script Club Series in German! Den Regeln folgen is available now!

The entire Script Club series is in the process of being translated into German. And Baxter should be available in French in early 2023 too. I’ll keep you posted!

As for 2023…I have so many things in the works and I can’t wait to share details! Be on the lookout for new updates coming in early January!

In the meantime, I have a little surprise! A small New Year’s short, featuring Cam and Joe from THE HUMBUG HOLIDAY, called—wait for it—A Humbug New Year. Enjoy!

Wishing you a happy, healthy, prosperous 2023!

Two grumpy bears and a holiday season neither will forget…

Joe

So this sexy silver fox rolls into my small New England town and buys a run-down old house in need of renovation. That’s where I come in. My job is to do some basic repairs, so he can write in peace. Yep, the hotshot is a bestselling author, but that’s not why I recognize Cameron Warren.

No worries, I won’t let a one-night stand make things awkward. I could use the work, but is he seriously asking me to help him buy a Christmas tree too?

No way. 

Cameron

I’m a good-natured guy all year long, but I have to admit…I hate the holidays.

There. I said it.

This season, I’m hiding away on the opposite side of the country in a picturesque village. My family isn’t excited about my decision, and the only way to assure them I’m fine is to deck the darn halls. Or hire someone else to do it.

The handyman might not be the logical choice for an elf, but his grumpy act makes me smile. Which makes me think the holidays might not be so “bah-humbug” this year after all.

The Humbug Holiday is a bisexual, age-gap romance featuring two grumpy bears who find unexpected magic and learn to embrace everyone’s favorite time of year!

THE HOLIDAY LIST is on Sale for 99cents!

One year ago, I released THE HOLIDAY LIST! The Mars maestro and the single dad… It’s one of the most popular books in my nerd/jock series. There’s something special about the sunshine/grumpy trope…and the single dad angle makes it extra fun!

🤓Nerd/Jock  ❤️Age Gap  👨‍👨‍👦Single Dad

This book is on sale for 99 cents through Sunday, December 11.

Perfect timing since THE HUMBUG HOLIDAY will be here Monday, the 12th!

We’ll go from grumpy/sunshine to grumpy/grumpy when a silver fox author unwittingly falls for the handyman who dislikes the holidays almost as much as he does! Find out what happens when they both slowly succumb to the magic of the season.

Gah! I can’t wait to introduce you to Cam and Joe! I’ve already listened to the first chapter of the audiobook (narrated by Michael Dean). With any luck, it will release soon after the ebook. Ooooh! This is going to be good!

LOVE AND HISTORY Audiobook is LIVE!

Woohoo! It’s finally here!

LOVE AND HISTORY is AVAILABLE on audiobook now! 

I’ve been talking about how incredible Alexander Cendese is for ages, and this quite honestly, might be my favorite narration of his in the Script Club series. His Ezra is spot on…the combination of cocky jock with a sensitive side that eats him alive in dark moments—and Holden…the unapologetic geeky Renaissance enthusiast and all around nice guy. I can’t wait for you to hear this one!

Check out the sample and purchase link here.

Fingers crossed that Better Than Beginnings will follow soon.

And don’t forget, The Real Baxter is on sale for just $1.99 till November 11!

The Real Baxter is on Sale! & Audio Coming Soon!

Sale Alert! For a brief time (till Nov. 11) THE REAL BAXTER is just $1.99!

This story was years in the making…and it was truly a labor of love with some laughter and tears along the way. I’m very proud of this novel and I absolutely fell in love with Seb and Trent. There’s something extraordinarily irresistible about an older man who has it all and learns the hard way that what he really needs can’t be bought.

❤️Age Gap ❤️Bodyguard ❤️Fake Boyfriend ❤️Humor ❤️Hurt/Comfort 

The audiobooks for LOVE AND HISTORY and BETTER THAN BEGINNINGS should be live any second now. Audible is moving a little slow on those, but they’re coming!
