Overview

Two holiday tales that prove you can have your peppermint stick...and eat it too.

An Improper Holiday by K.A. Mitchell
Ian Stanton is the earl's dutiful second son, always doing the proper thing. One exquisite exception: Nicholas Chatham. Except the consummation of their two-year relationship left Ian convinced that their desires were never meant to be indulged.

Five years later, Ian is home from war, wounded in body and spirit. Nicky never believed what they felt for each other was wrong, and he has plans to make things right. Now he has only twelve nights to convince Ian that happiness is not the price of honor and duty, but its reward.

The Dickens With Love by Josh Lanyon
Three years ago, antiquarian James Winter lost everything: his job, his lover and his self-respect. Now a rich collector wants him to do whatever it takes to buy a newly discovered Christmas story by Charles Dickens from the nutty professor who owns it. The catch: the buyer must remain anonymous.

Sedgwick Crisparkle turns out to be totally gorgeous-and on the prowl. Faster than you can say "Old St. Nick", they're mixing business with pleasure. But once Sedgwick discovers James has been a very bad boy, their chance for happiness is disappearing quicker than Santa's sleigh.

Warning: Just thinking about reading this book in 1814 could get you hanged, so the men in it who enjoy m/m interaction of an intimately penetrative nature are in a hell of a lot of trouble. Also contains an ocelot, songs by America and Stardust martinis.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
  • "The Dickens with Love is engaging, tender, and irresistibly sexy.  It also has an extra dash of forgiveness and the joy of new beginnings, making this novel a holiday treat that can and should be enjoyed all year long.  Like the Stardust martinis James and Sedgwick so enjoy, The Dickens with Love simply sparkles."  ~ Joyfully Reviewed
  • "Josh Lanyon’s witty and well-paced narrative The Dickens with Love is a story of love, redemption and holiday spirit that will entertain and charm its readers. This is a Christmas story about a Christmas story; it is clever, well-written, and frequently humorous, and it captures the many facets of the holiday season." ~ BookWenches
  • "The Dickens with Love is equal parts romance and mystery. It’s a Christmas story, but it’s more than mistletoe and brown paper packages tied up with string. It’s not a straight forward romance. There are many fascinating layers to it, beginning with a mysterious book and ending with a lovely romance. Charles Dickens' work adds a touch of magic and whimsy. Josh Lanyon is one of my favorite authors and The Dickens with Love is one of my favorite things this Christmas." ~ Rainbow Reviews
  • "This story is a typically wonderful Mitchell book and a quick and heart-warming holiday offering. I recommend it heartily." ~  Dear Author, A Recommended Read for December
  • "If you enjoy a regency with a strong flavour of the time, well-researched history that layers itself onto the page without you even noticing it’s there and a protagonists that you will be crossing your fingers for–hoping that they will get their well-deserved happiness, then you are going to love this." ~ 5 stars —-Speak Its Name
  • "K.A. Mitchell has crafted an appealing and engrossing story in a time when love between men could have meant the death penalty, should their passion for one another be discovered. The story is rich in dialogue and atmosphere, ...with great attention to detail, fashions and fads, of the period." ~  5 stars Rainbow Reviews

Meet the Author

Josh Lanyon has been writing award-winning gay mystery and romance for over a decade. The Dickens With Love is his  29th published title.
K.A. Mitchell discovered the magic of writing at an early age when she learned that a carefully crayoned note of apology sent to the kitchen in a toy truck would earn her a reprieve from banishment to her room. An Improper Holiday is her seventh published book.
