Clancy Nacht & Thursday Euclid - Le Jazz Hot ()

Because this story sucked me in so much I thought like was right there in the rooms with them. It made me laugh and in parts brought tears to my eyes… this was just an excellent book and I will definitely looking for more of their work. –Norma

I really liked this. I have a soft spot for boys discovering the joys of gay love, and another for drag queens who live their role. Sure, it was a bit far-fetched, but the boys were hot and the story turned out to be very romantic. I would definitely read more about Julia(n). –Candace

Handsome Julian Larson is a talented singer and dancer who performs in drag to make ends meet. So when his best friend needs a burlesque act at the last minute for a fireman's birthday party, he calls Julian. There, Julian dances for the birthday boy, Trent Fitzgerald; a too-good-to-be-true heartthrob who is too nice to keep a woman in his life. Falling hard for the leggy, blond singer--but believing that she's a woman named Julia--Trent tracks Julian down to his apartment where Julian poses as "Julia's" twin in a desperate, doomed ploy to win over the sexy firefighter. When Trent inevitably uncovers the truth, will it mean the end of Julian's chances or a brand new opportunity?

2) Aleksandr Voinov & Amy Lane - Country Mouse

These 2 authors work very well together. London seemed to come alive at certain moments. Both main characters were complex and a joy to read about, especially Malcolm. –April O.

Publisher: Riptide Publishing (April 21, 2012)
Amazon Kindle: Country Mouse

Owen may be a bit of a country mouse, but he’s loving his vacation in London. After a long day playing tourist, he’s on the hunt for some cheap beer and a good burger. Instead he finds a man hunting him, an arrogant prick with only one thing on the brain: the kind of meat that doesn’t come on a bun. Eighty-hour weeks at a trading desk don’t leave Malcolm Kavanagh much time for meaningful relationships. Besides, in his world, everything’s a competition—even sex. When his newest one-night-sub fails to show, Malcolm sets his sights on the pretty young Yank on the bar stool beside him. Owen’s all for an adventure with a native, but he’s not the pushover Malcolm thinks he is, and Malcolm’s not as shallow as he tries to be. They both soon learn that nothing's too intimate to share with a stranger, and the strangest things happen when two people share the most important pieces of their hearts

3) Darcy Abriel – Silver

Every time you think the story has reached its height, every time you figure the sexual innovations have reached their peak, Darcy insists on taking you a bit farther. And, just when you think you've figured out where the story is going, Darcy exposes a few satisfying twists that force yet another compromise - this time, with the your expectations. –Sally

Very interesting story. Loved the characters, especially Silver. –Tammy

Amazon: Silver: Humanotica, Book 1

Born to freedom. Molded into submission. Pleasure is her only weapon. No matter what the law decrees, Entreus is no one’s chattel. And he’s determined that no other humanotic—part human, part robot—spends one more second under the stranglehold of the power-mad government machine. That means doing whatever it takes to advance the cause for freedom. Even seduce a government minister’s favorite toy, a newly minted trinex named Silver. Silver was a free woman until she committed the ultimate sin—pretending to be male to gain entrance to an exclusive science academy. Her punishment: modification. Now she is equal parts female, male and machine. The property of the secretive, charismatic Lel Kesselbaum, whose appetites push her new sexual abilities to heights of pleasure that make her wonder who is master, who is slave. Until Entreus bargains his body in exchange for a secret meeting that rekindles her longing for freedom. Yet helping the fiery revolutionary execute his plan isn’t so simple, especially when she discovers her master’s secret—a secret that leaves her heart torn between two men. And one step in the wrong direction could mean death for them all.

Honorable Mention:



5) Kaitlin Maitland – Encore ()

The book was SEXY. The sex scenes and interaction of the characters was very well done. –Mariana

After the first chapter I did not want to read more, expecting the same crap about fucking and sucking but I’m certainly glad I did, the book changed drastically and I loved it! It became a very rich and rewarding novel, one of the best sex novels I’ve read this year. –Mick
