Best Gay Romance Series

Best Gay Romance 2012

Sweep-You-Off-Your-Feet Fiction

Get ready to fall in love with love all over again. Best Gay Romance 2012 creates a world of sexy, in-love men who live out their fantasies with memorable results. Young love. Love, unexpected. Lost love. Love, interrupted. "Straight" love. Rough love. Teeming with sexual intensity from the sweetly romantic to hot-and-heavy lust, these stories explore the vast emotional range of the heart. A schoolboy crush proves lasting in Anthony McDonald's dreamy "The Curtain Store," while in C.C. William's edgy "The Prisoner," a battle-weary Marine rekindles an old flame in some very tough love and risky role-playing. A Master shows affection for his submissive with the flick of a whip in Fyn Alexander's "Precious Jade" and a former high school hero returns to a tryst with a twist in Rob Rosen's "Prom King."

"These stories share the comfort of falling in love, of being in love, sometimes for a moment, sometimes for a lifetime." —Richard Labonté

With contributed stories by Steve Berman, Jamie Freeman, Ron Radle, Anthony McDonald, C.C. Williams, Steve Isaak, Fyn Alexander, Rob Rosen, Häkan Lindquist, Martin Delacroix, Simon Sheppard, Gregory L. Norris, and Aaron Chan.

Richard Labonté lives on small, friendly Bowen Island, off the coast of British Columbia, Canada. One of the founders of A Different Light Bookstore, he has edited the Best Gay Erotica series since 1996. He reviews 100 books a year for Q Syndicate, which distributes "Book Marks," his fortnightly column; writes the "Books to Watch Out For/Gay Men's Edition" newsletter; and writes book reviews for Publishers Weekly. Husband Asa and canines Percy and Zak are his constant companions.
