Welcome to author K-lee Klein, who’s here to today to celebrate the release of her latest Contemporary Romance, Lazy Sundays. K-lee is here to chat about the book’s origins, we’ve got a little teaser excerpt to share, and there’s also a giveaway of an eCopy of the book to two lucky readers, so be sure to check out the Rafflecopter widget for entry details!
Hello! And thanks for stopping by. I owe a great deal of gratitude to The Novel Approach because they’re always been so kind to me. And today I’m excited to announce the release of Lazy Sundays on September 26, 2018!
This is a special release for me because the characters of Devon DuCaine and Scott Weston already have a bit of a following. They’re also a delight to write.
The original Lazy Sundays was a free short story I wrote in 2011. I followed it up with a little sequel called Lazy Valentines. Over the years I’ve received emails and messages about continuing Devon and Scott’s story, and finally, that’s what I’ve done.
This version of Lazy Sundays is not just a rerelease. On top of the massive editing/rewrite I did on both books, I’ve also added more than double the content to Devon and Scott’s universe. Lazy Sundays can be defined as an opposites-attract romance, and the new version gives more insight into the differences between Scott and Devon—physically, mentally, emotionally. They have to learn trust and patience while they fall head over heels in love with each other. They suffer through a little angst, a dash of fun, and a whole lot of love. I hope you enjoy their story.
In honor of my new release, I’m offering ebook copies of Lazy Sundays to 2 commenters, so be sure to follow the entry instructions below.
Cheers and happy autumn everyone!
About Lazy Sundays
Scott Weston’s car is sensible, his suits are bland, and his job is stable but boring. Mundane routine helps keep his anxiety and obsessive tendencies under control. Socializing—especially dating—isn’t on his list of strong skills either, and, made worse with the echoes of his disapproving mother. So he’s content to stay at home with his lists and cleaning and wildlife documentaries, until a one-night stand goes unexpectedly right.
History has taught Devon DuCaine that dating can be uncomfortable, but there’s just something about Scott. He may be the opposite of Devon’s own long-haired, tattooed, free-wheeling spirit but he brings out the nurturer in Devon. It could be Scott’s surprising fascination with Devon’s motorcycle, or his shy surprise in moments of affection, but there’s more under those sensible suits than meets the eye. The most important person in Devon’s life, his mom, taught him love and compassion and that’s all he wants to share that with Scott.
Their one-night stand turns into a regular thing, but Scott doesn’t trust it to last. He’s pretty sure Devon is hiding something. He’s even more sure that once Devon gets to know him, the attraction will fade. And then there’s his mother. However many sparks fly between them, Devon will have his work cut out to convince Scott they can have their happily ever after.
(This book was originally published as 2 short stories. They’re combined here with massive edits and double the content from the originals.)

Scott hid a smile behind his hand while Devon rambled. Eventually, he turned to look into those sweet puppy dog eyes. “I’ll give you a hint. What do you think would be the most boring job in the world?”
Devon didn’t hesitate with his reply, his crooked smile giving way to a sour grimace. “Oh fuck. An accountant for sure, man. All those numbers to keep track of. Gives me a headache just thinking about it. I swear my uncle went to an early grave because he was an—”
Scott unsuccessfully stifled a groan.
“Oh shit, you’re an accountant, aren’t you?”
When Scott rose to refill his mug, he avoided Devon’s regretful gaze. “Thankfully, I’m not in my grave yet though.”
Devon groaned behind him. “I think you proved that this morning.” The teasing grin returned when Scott turned around—accompanied by two pretty dimples hidden under the scruff—and a wave of pleasure and relief shot through Scott. “…and twice last night.”
About the Author
K-lee Klein loves guys with long hair and tattoos, and you’ll often find her front and center at her favorite rock concerts. She has bounced around Western Canada all her life, but will always consider the solitude and beauty of the British Columbian mountains home. Her life is blessed as the proud mother of three now-grown but still spoiled kids, the servant of two bossy felines, and the wife of a truly patient husband.
Her writing muse is terribly temperamental, so to keep him close by and in check, she had him inked on her left calf. The gorgeous, long-haired, mostly naked, kneeling angel that resulted is truly a work of art, although he’s still a handful and hopelessly uncontrollable. She writes on his schedule and inspiration.
K-lee tends to fall easily into obsessions. When something grabs her attention, she jumps into it headfirst with complete abandon. Actors, musicians, superheroes, fictional characters, and brainwashed assassins all hold spots on her cannot-get-enough list. She once followed Thirty Seconds to Mars around the United States and Canada and saw them perform fourteen times that year. Obsession sometimes leads to ideas for her kneeling angel to turn into stories.
Although an introvert in person, she’s extroverted online and has met many wonderful friends there, sometimes with the added fun of meeting them in person at gay romance conferences. She’s grateful for all the people in her life who accept her as she is and support her through her ups and downs as mom, wife, and joyfully obsessed writer.
