BETTER THAN HOME is in KU & BAXTER’S Audiobook News!

The wait is over, KU Readers! BETTER THAN HOME and the entire Better Than Series is back on Amazon KU. You can catch up with Matt and Aaron and the gang for free with your subscription!

I fell in love with Matt and Aaron while writing their story ten years ago, shortly after my eldest son came out. I’ve talked about how it was a love letter of sorts to my son, but I realize that it was part of my journey as a parent. I wanted to learn whatever I could about how to support him and be present in his life in a meaningful way. Writing helped me do that. It gave me a diary of sorts to explore fear and heartache and ultimately, love and acceptance.

I wrote countless shorts after Better Than Good was released, highlighting anything from major life events to silly conversations the boys had while brushing their teeth or loading a dishwasher. Two years ago, I compile that collection into Better Than Beginnings. New shorts were added, including Matt and Aaron’s engagement and wedding story. And now, we have a new chapter, Better Than Home. I hope you enjoy following Matt and Aaron in the next phase of their HEA!

AND I have more news!

THE REAL BAXTER audiobook is LIVE!

Michael Ferraiuolo narrates Seb and Trent’s story about the hotshot silver-fox Hollywood producer and the actor who wins his heart…and teaches him how to keep it real. Sigh… Check out the sample and purchase link here. I’ll be doing a giveaway in my reader’s group, Lane’s Lovers this weekend too. Come join the fun!

Happy Reading and Listening! Lane xo

RULES OF PLAY is Available Everywhere! And More News…

The entire Script Club Series is now available at all reliable ebook retailers (Kobo, Apple, B&N, Amazon, etc)…including RULES OF PLAY. Don’t miss the vampire-loving geek and the jock, who happens to be his brother’s best friend. This series will be back on KU next month so don’t wait! Check out the blurb below…

The genius, the ex-jock, and a new playbook…

George-

My brother’s friend is hot—if you’re into flannel-wearing lumbersexual former jocks who eat donuts for dinner and still scribble to-do lists on their palms. I’m not. I’m a serious scientist in my final year of grad school. Okay, I admit I have few quirks of my own. I also have a broken truck and a boss who thinks I can help him find love. I’m in over my head. Help!

Aiden-

A few quirks? Really? George is the weirdest dude I know. He wears capes in public, brings a book everywhere he goes, and loves all things spooky. He’s also the smartest person on the planet—who somehow thinks I can help him write a How-To-Get-A-Date playbook for his boss. Yeah, that sounds suspicious. I know baseball; I don’t know anything about love. But I can’t say no. The thing is…I’ve always had a soft spot for George. But falling for my best friend’s brother is against the rules, isn’t it?

Rules of Play is an MM bisexual awakening story where opposites attract and shenanigans ensue!

Surprise Cover/Blurb Reveal!

Remember when I said I was going to write a little more Matt and Aaron? Well, I did! BETTER THAN HOME is coming April 18! Preorder is available now!

Check out this gorgeous cover by Reese Dante. ❤️

If you’re a Matty and Aaron fan, you won’t want to miss this! And if you don’t know who Matt and Aaron are, it’s time to check out BETTER THAN GOOD and the rest of the Better Than Series.

BTG was my first MM romance, published 9 years ago this coming July. Wow! It’s a very simple love story about a law student who meets a dazzling, fabulous man who changes his life.

As some of you know, Better Than Good was written in 2012 in the days after my oldest son came out as a sort of love letter to him. The story was a very simple romance about stumbling into the unexpected and embarking on a journey of self-realization, love, and acceptance.

I fell in love with Matt and Aaron and wrote countless snippets highlighting anything from major life events to silly conversations the guys had while brushing their teeth or loading a dishwasher. The shorts were published on my blog and eventually were compiled, edited, and released in a collection called, Better Than Beginnings. Better Than Home begins shortly after BTB ends. The boys are off on a new adventure and I cannot wait to share this with you!

Check out the blurb below and be sure to mark your calendars and Goodreads pages for April 18!

BETTER THAN HOME

The lawyer, the diva, and a new adventure…

Matt-

Life is good. A few years ago, I met someone special, came out as bi, fell head over heels, and married the love of my life. A man. But not just any man.

Aaron is a confident, unapologetically fabulous diva who isn’t afraid to take chances. I love that about him. New state, new career path…no problem.

Except things don’t always go according to plan. That’s okay. It might be the perfect time to get back to basics and check off a few items on our original list…like buy a house and start a family. Whoa! House first.

However, house hunting isn’t glamorous at all, and with my partnership at the law firm in the balance, it’s kind of stressful. Everything we’ve dreamed of is within reach—if we can just find a place that feels like home, we’ll be better than good.

Better Than Home is a sweet and sexy novella featuring Matt and Aaron from my International Bestselling book, Better Than Good. The lawyer, the diva, and the happy ever after of a lifetime. For readers who know the real love story happens after the first “I love you.”

Happy Reading! Lane xo

THE REAL BAXTER Cover/Blurb Reveal!

Ta da! It’s been a long wait, but THE REAL BAXTER cover and blurb are officially revealed… Check out this gorgeous new cover by the amazing Reese Dante. Sebastian’s story is almost here! Woohoo!

I can’t wait to introduce you to Seb and Trent, the silver-fox Hollywood exec and the down-on-his-luck actor slash faux bodyguard. THE REAL BAXTER is Book 1 in The Baxter Chronicles, my brand-new “Hollywood” series.

This one is extra special because it belongs to Sebastian Rourke, who some may remember from my Starting From Series. I know a lot of readers have been waiting for Seb’s HEA for years! What makes him so special? Well, let’s just say…Seb is a piece of work. He’s a perfect storm of good intentions and misplaced priorities. He’s both generous and selfish, kind and ruthless, a true success story…and a bit of a mess. LOL And Trent is just a regular guy who’s willing to show him what’s real…even if it means losing it all. *sigh…

Check out the blurb below and be sure to save THE REAL BAXTER on your Goodreads page. Three weeks and counting!

THE REAL BAXTER

The silver-fox and the faux bodyguard…

Sebastian

Who’s the true hero behind the Hollywood heartthrob, crime-fighting, adventure-seeking international man of mystery? Me. I’m the real Baxter.

Well, I wear the suit and let the action play out onscreen. You want to know the secret of my success? Sell the story you want to tell. Even if you have to bend the truth a little. 

Okay…a lot. 

Trust me, no one will notice. Except Trent, who seems to notice everything. And for some reason, I like that. I like him. I’m just not sure what to do about it. 

Trent

Look, I’m not exactly killing it. I’m a typical struggling actor-slash-waiter, hoping for a break. And boom…in walks Sebastian Rourke. He’s a cutthroat, wickedly charming silver fox, a Hollywood legend in the making. No joke. You’ve got to sell a piece of your soul to get in this man’s orbit. Or fake a British accent, then take a job playing bodyguard to fool the press. As one does. 

I know I should take advantage of the very strange situation I find myself in, but I’m not sure I’m cut out for it. However, I’m willing to take a chance, ’cause I want the real Seb. 

Even though it might cost me everything. 

The Real Baxter is a MM age-gap, bisexual romance featuring the man who has everything and the actor who’s willing to show him what’s real. 

ALSO…

I’m pleased to announce that Leaning Into a Wish is now available in French Translation! 🇫🇷 Pour…un voeu: Pour… #5

Two coworkers at a prestigious Napa winery…one serious, one not-so-serious. When their tentative friendship blossoms into something more, Ryan and Danny may have to change direction and lean into a holiday wish…

Last but not least…

Happy February! I have some fun updates to share!

FOLLOWING THE RULES is now available on all ebook platforms, including Kobo, Apple, and B&N (as well as Amazon). If you’v been waiting to dive into my Geek and Jocks series, now is the perfect time!

The geek, the jock, and a new set of rules…

❤ Best friend’s brother ❤ Nerd/Jock ❤ Bisexual awakening ❤ Romantic comedy

Topher-

My friend’s brother needs an academic assistant and I need a job. Problem…jocks are my weakness. Seriously. I lose my ability to speak coherently around muscle-bound hotties. Oh yeah, I lose my inhibitions too—not a good look for a guy with a genius IQ. So what am I going to do about Simon? 

Simon-

Finishing college isn’t high on my list of priorities, but my future in professional football is looking bleak. I need a plan B or C, and I could use some help navigating life as an undergrad. Topher is perfect. He’s also a little strange…but in a good way. And I like the way I feel when I’m around him—as though anything is possible. Maybe if we follow our hearts, we’ll find what we’re looking for. But that means changing the rules…

Following the Rules is a MM, bisexual awakening romance starring a lovable nerd, a cool jock, and some extracurricular fun

The other books in the series will make their way to a wide market soon too! I’ll keep you posted. And yes! There are two more books coming in the Script Club series in 2022.

Wes Conrad owns a thriving winery in Napa Valley.

 🏄 When the teacher becomes the student, it may be time to come out in the surf.🏄

OUT IN THE SURF

The hockey player, the surfer, and a lesson neither can forget…

Luca

I love the beach, and I’m a good athlete. Learning how to surf should be a breeze, right? Wrong. In a twist, hockey is nothing like surfing. That’s okay—I just need a diversion to round out my new life in So Cal while I figure out what comes next. As long as I keep my head above water, this could be fun. Bonus…my instructor is hot. 

Cal

Teaching newbies to surf is easy money. Usually. My newest student is a wild card who seems to think his jock status should make him a natural at everything he tries, and I can see why. Luca is…special. He’s dynamic, energetic, and fun. It’s hard not to like him. But I like him a little too much. 

This could be trouble. 

Out in the Surf is a low-angst MM romance, bisexual-awakening story.

Who’s ready for THE REAL BAXTER? The cover/blurb reveal is just a couple of weeks away!

Happy Reading and Happy 2022! Lane xo
