Love Burns Bright

A Lifetime of Lesbian Romance

Lesbian Love and Desire

“Kissing Kathy is like kissing her for the first time and the millionth time, new and yet familiar, fresh and yet filled with the memories of every kiss we’ve shared.” — "Sepia Showers" by Andrea Dale

Love, passion, desire...the pleasure that begins with the thrill of the first date, the breathless anticipation of the first kiss, and the euphoric wonder of the first night of passion that only deepens as love grows. Curated by award-winning editor Radclyffe, these stories of lesbian couples celebrating their lives and relationships are heartfelt and, best of all, sweetly sexy.

Love doesn’t always start with a storybook beginning—sometimes it takes a lifetime to find—as in Rebekah Weatherspoon’s “Forever Yours, Eileen.” Sometimes romance is just knowing when to seize the moment, as Suzy muses about her sometimes lover, but forever love, “Darrell,” in Jay Lawrence’s tale.

Some things really do get better with time. Come discover the never-ending passion of lesbian desire in Love Burns Bright.


RADCLYFFE has written more than forty romance novels, edited over a dozen anthologies, and presented numerous writing workshops in the United States and abroad. She is an eight-time finalist and three-time winner of the Lambda Literary Award, and a recipient of RWA FF&P Prism, RWA FTHRW Lories Best Published Mainstream novel, and IPPY awards. A member of the Saints and Sinners Literary Hall of Fame, she is also the president and publisher of Bold Strokes Books. Her 2012 novels include Night Hunt, written as L.L. Raand, the third in the Midnight Hunters paranormal romance series, the First Responders novel Oath of Honor, and Crossroads, a medical romance.
