The Lemonade Stand by Jo Tannah & Ann Mickan


Categories: Contemporary, Gay, GLBT, Short Stories, Romance-sweet, 2017 Summer Shorts


Who’d have thought that when life hands you lemonade, it could taste oh, so sweet?
Being home for the summer wasn’t something Ian Hamilton had planned on, but his mother surprising everyone with a fourth baby was also sort of unplanned. Ian’s father slowly going bonkers coping with sleepless nights, feeding the new baby, and dealing with Ian’s twelve-year-old twin sisters complicates things even more. 
Michael Alexander had moved back into his parents’ home last summer, just until he could find an apartment nearer the hospital where he works. His parents had offered to look for him, but that was over six months ago.
One smmer day, Michael gets home exhausted, only to find a Lemonade Stand set up on the curb of his driveway, making it impossible to park his car. Expecting to see his neighbor’s twin girls, he’s surprised when he finds a young man instead—one who takes one look at Michael’s tired face and offers him a glass of lemonade and a flirty smile.

Day 19! Congratulations Kathy Kalmar on the release of Mountain Hot @eXtasyBooks #SummerShorts #erotic #romance #extasybookssale

Sometimes we get what we pray for but when Storme gets handsome Craig Knight, will all hell break lose or will she have heaven on earth?

Feisty Storme Weathers is as volatile as the sudden pop-up storms in springtime. As unpredictable as the weather, her name fits her personality to a T. One minute she is happily crushing on red hot Craig Knight and the next she is leaving the peace and quiet of the Great Smoky Mountains for the bright lights of the city. Too bad she left her heart behind with him. 

Craig is a handsome hunk in a suit who didn’t leave the hills. He loves his mountain life and heritage. He can’t fathom living anywhere else. 

When Storme’s beloved Gram dies, she and her estranged sisters, Skye and Sunny, must return to the mountains to run the family lodge they inherited. The only hitch is she must do so with her sisters and Craig, executor of their grandmother’s will. She feels more than a tug in her girlie parts at the mere thought of seeing him again, but working with him and her temperamental sisters does not thrill her at all. 

Will Storme head for the hill and heat up Craig’s nights or will she run away? She’ll lose more than her inheritance unless she fights to claim what’s hers once and for all.

#AuthorInFocus: Lynn Michaels #author of #MM #romance #contemporary #fantasy #adventure @sljasble #giveaway

Today, we welcome Lynn Michaels to the Author In Focus portion of the blog. Here's a little bit about her. 


Lynn Michaels lives and writes in Tampa, Florida where the sun is hot and the Sangria is cold. When she’s not writing she’s kayaking, hanging with her husband, or reading by the pool. Lynn writes Male/Male romance because she believes everyone deserves a happy ending and the dynamics of male characters can be intriguing, vulnerable, and exciting. She has both contemporary and paranormal titles and has been writing since 2014. Her stories don’t follow any set guidelines or ideas, but come from her heart and contain love in many forms.


You can find Lynn in these media circles 

Website | Facebook | Twitter




Now the introduction's done and over with, let me get settled in my chair so we can start the interview...

First off, tell us a little about yourself.

Hi, I’m Lynn Michaels. I live in Tampa, FL and I write MM Romance. 

What was that WTF moment that inspired you to write that first time?

There were two things that really made me want to write. The first was not liking how a good book ended and the second was not wanting a good book to end.  I figured if I was re-writing in my head, I ought to just write my own story.

How long have you been writing?

Trick question.  I started writing in elementary school. But, publishing? I started publishing short stories about 15 years ago – WOW, that’s a long time! Then, I started writing and publishing novels seriously over the past three or four years. So, I’ve been writing forever, but I just started. I’m an enigma. 

What advice would you give a new writer just starting out?

Learn to edit and don’t be afraid to ask for help. You really can’t publish alone.

Oh! good advise. I've read so many books. I agree, editing is key to a good read.

Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?

I think we all do. Mostly it’s when I’m starting to burn out. I take a break – get out of the office, away from the laptop. I try to get outside. A walk, a swim in the pool, or even just coffee on the porch. It always helps to get a literal breath of fresh air.

As a reader, what author or genre do you read? Who would you recommend? 

MM Romance mostly. I like all sub-genres and tropes. I read everything. 

What comes first, the plot or characters? What triggers your plot bunnies?

It varies. Usually the bunnies start bouncing around when I’m working on something. Suddenly, a character is in my head demanding attention.  I also get inspired by taking little things from here and there and doing a What IF.. What if this or that and then I start plotting and the characters just kind of show up.

Describe the perfect writing space.

Some sunshine, a laptop, and PLENTY of coffee... and no interruptions.

If you do research for your books, how much or how far would you go to get that itsy bitsy detail?

It depends. I can get carried away. But, I like to know that my stories are probable if not possible, so I do research a lot.

How many books have you written? Do you have a favorite? If yes, which one and why. If no, why not?

Oh – and now I have to count... As Lynn Michaels... published books are...5 novels, 4 novellas, and a short story. And a contribution to a poetry anthology.  That’s as of this moment...My favorite is Lines On The Mirror. I think it has the most depth, the most literary merit, and is probably the darkest. Wanton is second, because Corey is probably the most broken. I seem to like broken, dark, and vulnerable guys.

What are you currently working on now? You can refuse to answer on the grounds that it’s TOP SECRET at the moment.

Haha... not top secret. Time for Love is with Beta readers now. That one is about a philosopher and a police specialist (smart but tough guy) and it’s sexy, cute, and fun.  I’m also writing a demon story. Demons are fun and bad...and fun.

Do you use a pen name? Or two? Maybe three? (Can you tell us why you have more than one?)

Lynn Michaels is my pen name.  I also write under my real name (Sherri Jordan-Asble, 3 published paranormal adventure novels). I like the separation for marketing/branding. Lynn Michaels is MM and the other mostly not. I haven’t been secret with it at all. Some people do, but I’m just too open.

Days 9 & 10: Congratulations to M. Garnet & Stefan Angelina Mcelvain of @eXtasyBooks #extasybookssale #erotic #romance #shorts


Day 9 



Age might just be a matter of the mind, ask the sixty-year-old woman who seems to be growing younger.
Why would a handsome young new neighbor man pay any attention to a sixty-year-old maid who works in her flower garden and raises tea plants? Why are her book club members mad at her, and why can’t her walking group keep up with her anymore? Can it have anything to do with the tea she is drinking each night from the leaves the new neighbor has provided to her? Age is as old as you feel.




Day 10






What would you do if you could walk in someone else’s shoes?
Joanne snapped one of her high-heels. The cobbler promised a two-hour turnaround. He lied. Can a night in a hotel help Gordon and Jo rediscover their love?

Review: Satin (A Material World) by @K_C_Wells #mm #erotic #contemporary #romance

Satin (A Material World #2)
Amazon

Can a touch of Satin bring a straight copper to his knees?


Detective Joel Hunter is on surveillance when he first lays eyes on Satin, the singer with the amazing voice, which is as beautiful as she is. But when the stake-out comes to an end, he can’t resist going back to the bar. He gets a shock when he learns what lies beneath the satin dress, but an even bigger one when he realizes he’s attracted to the owner of that sultry voice - Ross Dauntry.
Ross can’t figure out why the cop keeps coming back, even after he’s learned the truth. Is Joel attracted to him, or to Satin? Because the answer is important, and one way or another, Ross needs to know…

46,000 words. A standalone novella of satin and sensuality...
Although this story is in the same series as Lace, you will not find Dave and Shawn in these pages - Joel and Ross provide enough heat of their own. 


Congratulations to @CamAllieErotica & @SeelieKay on their latest #releases @eXtasyBooks #SummerShorts #mm #erotic #romance



Day 7




Hot Greek male looking for roommate for tropical vacation. Must be female. Must be sexy brunette, with a passion for reading. Must be Natalie Donovan.
When Griff asked her whether, to cut costs, she’d like to room with him at their friends’ wedding, Natalie should have said no. But now as they sip margaritas on a white sand beach, Natalie finds flirting with her long time crush a little too easy. And finds sleeping next to him, night after night, to be too much temptation.






The battle over a runaway’s garage dwelling sends an attorney straight into the arms of the local police chief.
Criminal defense attorney Julianna Constant is skilled at emasculating witnesses and hogtying juries, but she is unprepared to deal with a homeless teenager found living in her garage. The boy she has known since childhood wages an unwinnable battle to stay in her home, as Constant struggles to protect her family. Ultimately, the threat to her safety and emotional well-being mounts, and Julianna pushes back, falling right into the arms of the new police chief, a man who always carries two sets of handcuffs and uses them for more than just restraining criminals!
