Nick Jorgensen is a quirky genius. He’s made a fortune in the competitive high tech field with his quick mind and attention to detail. He believes in hard work and trusting his gut. And he believes in karma. It’s the only thing that makes sense. People are difficult, but numbers never lie. In the disastrous wake of a broken engagement to an investor’s daughter, Nick is more certain than ever he isn’t relationship material.

Wes Conrad owns a thriving winery in Napa Valley. The relaxed atmosphere is a welcome departure from his former career as a high-rolling businessman. Wes’s laid-back nature is laced with a fierceness that appeals to Nick. In spite of his best intention to steer clear of complications, Nick can’t fight his growing attraction to the sexy older man who seems to understand him. Even the broken parts he doesn’t get himself. However, when Wes’s past collides with Nick’s present, both men will have to have to decide if they’re ready to lean into the ultimate fall.

 Meet the Author

Lane Hayes is grateful to finally be doing what she loves best. Writing full-time! It’s no secret Lane loves a good romance novel. An avid reader from an early age, she has always been drawn to well-told love story with beautifully written characters. These days she prefers the leading roles to both be men. Lane discovered the M/M genre a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Her debut novel was a 2013 Rainbow Award finalist and subsequent books have received Honorable Mentions, and were winners in the 2016 Rainbow Awards. She loves red wine, chocolate and travel (in no particular order). Lane lives in Southern California with her amazing husband in an almost empty nest.

Nick is an award winning narrator with a fan following for his work in fiction, specifically in the romance genre.

When he’s not in the booth, Nick enjoys spending time with his wife, Jessica, and kids, (aka their beagle Frank and cat Stella), drumming in his cover band, exploring rural back roads with his wife on his motorcycle, or being enthralled in a tabletop role playing game with his friends.

Nell and Kris Writes

An exciting announcement!

If you don’t follow me on Twitter, you missed an exciting announcement yesterday. (Seriously, why aren’t you following me on Twitter? Why, why? Don’t you love me? 😁)

Anyway. A week or so ago, I woke up to a very interesting email from an author I  admire a lot, with the subject line Want to write a book with me? I was exhilarated before I even opened it and read the message, and that feeling hasn’t left me since.

You want to know who sent the email?

Kris T. Bethke – that’s who!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know I’ve gushed over her writing several times and proclaimed myself a Kris-fan girl, so just being asked felt awesome. But what’s even better is that we started talking and hit it off like a house on fire. In this past week I feel like I haven’t just gotten myself a writing partner, but also a new friend.

So if you think I said yes, you’re absolutely right. We’ve already planned out several characters and  plotted the first book. Yes, I said first book, because it will be a series.

Since we’re still in the early stages, I won’t tell you anything else right now except… today Kris sent me the first chapter. After I’d read it, I felt like this, but with heart eyes 😁


Stay tuned for more information. You don’t want to miss this!! 🙂
