Last year Marie Sexton's Promises finalled 6th in this same category; good position considering it was, like Hot Head, the only Gay Romance up there, but wouldn't be wonderful if this year we managed something better? And I said "we" since it's up to you, reader, to vote... so what are you waiting for?!?
I'm proud for Dreamspinner Press and for Damon Suede; they both did a wonderful job these past years and Hot Head is a perfec example of Gay Romances appealing to ALL the LGBT readers and their straight allies... I have the proof, I have gay friends reading it and loving it, and it's already quite clear that also straight women reading Hot Head are loving this sexy romantic story. And of course I love it... but you already know that!

Where there's smoke, there's fire... Since 9/11, Brooklyn firefighter Griff Muir has wrestled with impossible feelings for his best friend and partner at Ladder 181, Dante Anastagio. Unfortunately, Dante is strictly a ladies' man, and the FDNY isn't exactly gay-friendly. For ten years, Griff has hidden his heart in a half-life of public heroics and private anguish. Griff's caution and Dante's cockiness make them an unbeatable team. To protect his buddy, there's nothing Griff wouldn't do... until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty. And Dante wants them to appear there-together. Griff may have to guard his heart and live out his darkest fantasies on camera. Can he rescue the man he loves without wrecking their careers, their families, or their friendship?
