Best LGBT Erotica

andrew potter
And the Rainbow Award goes to:



1) J.P. Beausejour - Buccaneer Island ()

As erotica this book is flipping BRILLIANT. Oh my gosh good. Yeah. It's all that and a bag of chips. This piece had everything an erotica book should have, and was a treat to read. –Cherie

Amazon: Buccaneer Island

At the age of nineteen, Sir Edmund, third son of an English earl, discovers a taste for spanking, submission, and dominant men. Caught on his knees in his father's stables, his backside marked by the whip and his lips around a stable hand's member, he is banished to Louisiana, to pursue the sugar planter's trade. Shipwrecked and marooned on a Caribbean island, he falls under the spell of Matthew, a common seafaring man and sometime pirate. Alone on a desert beach with the handsome giant, Edmund learns to accept Matthew's dominance, and soon finds himself falling in love. He begins his transformation into his rescuer's devoted wife, but when he learns Matthew plans to betray his trust with the Creole witch and brothel keeper Mistress Reid, he escapes into the jungle, and into a world of lust and adventure among the wild buccaneers.

2-tie) Rachel Haimowitz & Cat Grant - Power Play Awakening

I enjoyed the book a lot. I am glad that it wasn't very graphic, and the authors didn't choose to have the characters humiliated for shock value. That their journey was loving and what each needed. –Mariana

Paperback: 262 pages
Publisher: Riptide Publishing (June 11, 2012)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 193755144X
ISBN-13: 978-1937551445
Amazon: Power Play: Awakening (Volume 2)

Give me six months, and I'll give you the world. Brandon McKinney is a man reborn. Newly awakened to the notion of consensual power exchange and the submissive urges inside him, he begs for a second chance from the man who opened his eyes to this world: Silicon Valley superstar Jonathan Watkins. But no birth is absent pain, and Brandon’s is no exception. He fears he’s not strong enough to see it through. Jonathan knows better. He’s seen the iron core inside his new submissive, and the wounded heart inside him too. He means to teach Brandon to heal the one with the other. They have five months left on their contract, after all, and Jonathan has done more with less before. It’s tough to stay objective, though, when you’re falling in love. Shame Brandon doesn’t feel the same. He’s only there for the three-million-dollar payout at contract’s end—a fact that Jonathan, nursing his own wounded heart, reminds himself of each day. For even as Brandon’s barriers break and his mind expands, even as he grows to love his place at Jonathan’s feet, he’ll never love life with a sadist—especially one who cannot escape the public eye.

Jerry L. Wheeler - Riding the Rails

An evocative collection of well-written-- and hot-- stories about sex on trains. –Alan

Paperback: 264 pages
Publisher: Bold Strokes Books (December 20, 2011)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1602825866
ISBN-13: 978-1602825864
Amazon: Riding the Rails: Locomotive Lust and Carnal Cabooses

Some of the hottest writers of gay erotica spin tales of Riding the Rails. Trains are so romantic. The clock fades from your mind as the country spreads out before you. Forget catching up on your reading—you have scenery to inspire you and time for an innocent flirtation or two. Or ten. Maybe not so innocent and more than a flirtation. It could be the guy in the cargo shorts across the aisle, sleeping with his legs just far enough apart. It could be the blond in the tight muscle shirt and baggy sweatpants heading for the bathroom. It could even be the handsome stranger sitting opposite you who chats you up and invites you to the dining car with yet another invitation in his eyes. This train will take you places you never dreamed of going.

3) Jeff Mann - Desire and Devour

An entertaining and very sexual story. I liked Derek more in the beginning than the end. Jeff Mann is a very gifted writer. He got me interested in this vampire, when I've become tired of vampires. I would definitely read another Jeff Mann book, as he was good at keeping my interest. –Mariana

Paperback: 202 pages
Publisher: Bear Bones Books (August 25, 2012)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1590213939
ISBN-13: 978-1590213933
Amazon: Desire & Devour: Stories of Blood & Sweat

Desire. The longing for the touch of men. The edge of hunger. The need for supplicants craving a sweaty embrace, a passionate tryst in the dark. Devour. To drink, to dispatch, to swallow. To quench one's unimaginable thirst. To leave an empty vessel behind as one walks away into the night. More than a hundred and fifty years before Dracula ever touched English soil, Scottish Highlander Derek Maclaine became one of the undead to bring a terrible vengeance on those who had taken the man he loved. But revenge could not sate his appetites for sweat and blood through the years; an immortal learns to survive, to love again, as the lives of mortals are bright and brief flames that attract vampires like amorous moths. Award-winning author Jeff Mann has collected his erotic and powerful stories of Derek's unlife, adventures that travel centuries and the globe. Loosen your collar, bare your throat, sigh in expectation, but do not forget to shiver as this burly and brawny stalker of men steps behind you, to brush his beard against your neck as his hands grasp you where you most need to be touched.

Honorable Mention:



5) Jerry L. Wheeler - Dirty Diner

This anthology ended up surprising me quite a bit. I was afraid I would be bored, the theme tired. What I found instead was a collection of skillfully written erotic tales – each a jewel of writing and storytelling. I found myself slowing down and savoring this read…, which, I suppose, was Mr. Wheeler’s point. –Linda E.

Rachel Haimowitz & Cat Grant - Power Play Resistance

An intense and gripping book. The writing is tight, clean, and adds to the tension that builds throughout the story. The shifting POVs helped to understand the nature of each man’s needs. Sex scenes are well-done, easy to follow even for a reader who hasn’t read much BDSM. –Shira
Extremely strong characterization and although it put me out of my comfort zone I engaged with the story and the characters. –Sue

8) Todd Gregory - Wings, Subversive Gay Angel Erotica

They are creatures of extraordinary beauty and incredible power. Messengers of God or protectors of the human race, these mysterious creatures of light can also take human form—and can experience the emotions, lusts, and desires of a man.

9) Neil Plakcy - Three Lambs, Erotic Tales of A Gay Frat

Lambda Lambda Lambda, the all-gay fraternity at Florida University (FU) in Miami, is the setting for eleven hot new stories by master of gay erotica Neil Plakcy. Sexy college guys get it on with each other, with models and construction workers and security guards.

Amazon Kindle: Three Lambs, Erotic Tales of A Gay Frat

Geoffrey Knight - The Gentlemen's Parlor

Nice short erotic story. Characterization was strong, story was sexy, although not overly so. I would have liked to have seen a bit more about the parlor itself - more description/setting. But otherwise, a nice, quick read. –Shira

Publisher: Imperial Pride (Dare Empire eMedia Productions) (January 23, 2012)
