Strait Laced

It's the ultimate opposites-attract romance: Shy corporate climber Paul, who isn't in the closet but isn't quite comfortable being too far out of it, is hit on by go-go boy Ben, a tattooed young man from a working class family who is definitely out and proud. Is there any chance of a relationship between two so very different men, or is the more or less homeless Ben just looking for a place to bed down? More

Slave for Two

Volume 1 of Soul Match

Admittedly, in rough outline it sounds like the plot of a porn flick: A race of super-hunky aliens with a strong penchant for BDSM invade earth, quickly subdue the population, and round up all the twinks to serve as sex slaves for their kinky enjoyment. What saves it from being eye-rolling smut is strong character development. A good portion of this book, the first in a series that already stretches to four volumes, is spent getting to know the main human character Chris before he is captured by the Alasharians. More
