Review - Eromenos

Posted in Book Reviews on Mar 05, 2012

The story of Hadiran and Antinous has provided great fodder for gay historical romance. After all, there are few male historical figures that we know had sexual relationships. Even Alexander and Hephastion may have enjoyed a purely platonic affair. But that Antinous was Hadrian's sexual partner there can be little doubt. The many memorials left by Hadrian to Antinous seems to suggest there More

The Finder

It's been a while since I read any science fiction. There doesn't seem to be much out there that really appeals to me. It's also been a long time since I read anything by Brandon Fox, but I have fond memories of his old sex and magic trilogy, which were fun reads in More

Review - Pain and Revenge

Pain and Revenge

It's generally not a good sign when you notice two factual errors within the first two pages of a book. Most readers might not have noticed them, but I did and it put me on guard for the rest of the story. Fortunately, I didn't notice anything else, but More

Review - Gaius and Achilles

Posted in Book Reviews on Feb 12, 2012

It's not often anymore that a book catches me completely by surprise, taking turns that you just don't expect an historical romance to take. "Gaius and Achilles" surprised me, and I don't mind saying right up front it was quite a pleasant surprise.

We're More

Review - Achilles: A Love Story

Posted in Book Reviews on Feb 03, 2012

The Greek era has always been one of my favorites for historical romance. Perhaps it's because Mary Ranault's Alexander books were the first historical novels with a gay bent I ever read, or maybe it's just because it was a time when love between men was not More

Dark Soul

When I first started seeing blurbs for this book, I have to say it didn't appeal to me. It's hard for mafia stories not to come off as caricature. But I like the author - especially for his use of times and themes not usually found in m/m stories - so when the publisher offered More
