Welcome

Our primary output is male-male romance with plot – mystery, adventure etc. – set either in the present or the historical past or in alternate versions of them, sometimes with a supernatural twist. If you like your e-books the way you like your coffee – whether short and dark, hot and steamy, or rich and indulgent – you’ll find something to suit your taste here.

Come on in, relax and enjoy our wide variety of same-sex fiction, guaranteed to spice up your day – and all for the price of a couple of cups of designer coffee. It’s not only better for your health, it’s good for the environment too.

New titles

Our two most recent titles were published on 1 February:

A new Julie Bozza book is always an event, and this time she brings us the story of Jules who – as a devoted fan of celebrity author Ewan Byge – splashes out on buying a souvenir of his idol which brings him closer to the man himself than he could ever have imagined in THE ‘TRUE LOVE’ SOLUTION.

Alongside that, we’re very pleased to have a revised reprint of Chris Quinton’s book CARLYLE’S CROSSING, which was previously available elsewhere.  Jubal is reluctantly drawn into a mystery from his family’s past, which takes him and staunch buddy Sal the whole width of the USA and plunges them both into some very murky waters indeed.

Along the way, in each of the books, there are some unexpected twists which we’re sure will keep you glued to the page – or should that be the screen? – until the very last word, and we’re very glad to have this opportunity of offering them to you.

As regular readers will know, we’re continually striving to bring you a wide range of new, high-quality same-sex fiction – and that’s why we’re always willing to consider new projects from new authors; if you have a novel or a set of short stories you’d like us to take a look at, please see our Prospectus for details of how to submit your work.

New anthology in the works

We’re delighted to announce our new anthology A CERTAIN PERSUASION is open for submissions!

This time we are visiting the Austenverse. We are seeking stories set in and around Jane Austen’s novels and other writings, featuring GLBTQIA people as the main characters. Think Death at Pemberley only more fabulous, or Lost in Austen only queerer.

Suppliers

We are happy to be in partnership with AllRomance eBooks, the Smashwords Premium Catalog, and of course our titles are also available for Kindle; there are buy links for these throughout the site.

In addition, there are Print on Demand versions of some of our titles appearing on an irregular basis, and buy links for these will be found on the relevant pages. These are made available at the discretion of the individual authors, however, and it is probable that only a proportion of our titles will be published in this way.
