Thank you for having me here to chat about my latest release, A Kind of Honesty. This is book 3 in my A Kind of Stories series set in New York City. A Kind of Honesty is Tim and Carter’s story. Those who’ve read the first two books may remember Tim is the drummer in Spiral from A Kind of Truth and Carter is Zeke’s best friend in A Kind of Romance. If you haven’t read them yet, no worries! All of my books are standalones and can be read in any order. J
Now for an interesting question… and a difficult one too…
If you were deserted on an island, which three people would you want to have with you? Why? You can choose from:
One fictional character from your book
One fictional character from any other book
One famous person that is not a family member or friend
Let’s see… My first choice would be Jack from Better Than Friends because he’s a strong, sensible, no nonsense guy who’d at least make me think he’d know how to survive on a deserted isle. Second choice would be Anne Rice’s vampire Lestat. He’d probably want to eat us, but if we found a way to charm him, he’d actually be our best bet off the island. I’m pretty sure he can fly. Hmm. My third choice would be Barak Obama. He’s great in a crises and he’s the voice of reason in a time when a lot of idiots want their fifteen minutes of fame. I miss him already. Third term? Lol.
Thank you for having me here today, Charlie!

Title: A Kind of Honesty
Series: A Kind of Story, #3
Author: Lane Hayes
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Release Date: October 7, 2016
Heat Level: 4 – Lots of Sex
Genre: Romance, Bisexual, Rock Star, NYC, Humor
Music is Tim Chalmers’s great escape and the one thing that’s never let him down. But his band Spiral’s meteoric rise to fame has made it difficult for the drummer to maintain a low profile. Unwanted press pesters him after a public breakup with a volatile ex-girlfriend who loves the limelight as much as he loathes it. Tim’s main goal is to avoid confrontation. However, when he meets a handsome stranger in a dive bar who turns out to be someone he may know, everything changes.
Carter Hamilton-Temple might be a successful financial consultant with more brains, sophistication, and charm than most, but he always falls for the wrong guys: closet cases or men with issues. He can’t fight his attraction to the tattooed rock star, but can he trust his own judgment? When the thrill of danger combined with a fierce physical connection proves too strong for either man to resist, a quiet liaison away from the public eye and curious friends seems like a safe bet. But some secrets are hard to keep. When rumors threaten to rock his world, Tim realizes it’s time to confront his fear with his own kind of honesty.
“What kind of a rock star are you? You’re supposed to love sex, drugs, and alcohol. I haven’t known you long, but you seem to only really like one out of three,” Carter commented idly as he shuffled the cards.
“You’re right. I’m a sucky rock star. I rarely have more than one drink when I go out for dinner or even at a bar. Two at a party. Anything more usually leads to trouble. And I never take drugs. Even cold medicine makes me nervous.” I winked and gave him a lecherous grin that no doubt looked far from provocative in my current condition. “But I love sex.”
