Love, Longing and Lust

From hearts and flowers to down and dirty, Best Gay Romance 2013 has both heat and sweet.

A blue-collar bear's secret crush on his hard-bodied coworker is unexpectedly (and repeatedly) requited in T. Hitman's "One." A boy-next-door is abandoned when his date has a chance to meet Ann-Margret backstage in Max Pierces's "Viva Las Vegas"—but then he takes a bet on love with someone else and, against every odd, wins. In Michael Bracken's "Total Package," a closeted postman in Texas delivers the mail and receives, in return, real friendship and true romance. A broad-shouldered French pastry maker invites a lucky customer across the counter in Neil Plakcy's "The Baker."

These heady, head-over heels, heart-pounding stories of gay romance make for inspiring bedtime reading. You will be rooting for these men from the very first sentence.

With contributed stories by Neil Plakcy, Shane Allison, Martin Delacroix, T. Hitman, Natty Soltesz, Doug Harrison, Jamie Freeman, Georgina Li, Edward Moreno, Fyn Alexander, Max Pierce, C.C. Williams, Jameson Currier, Shanna Germain, Michael Bracken, Kal Cobalt, and J.M. Snyder.

Synopsis:

Best Gay Romance 2013 has both heat and sweet. These stories of meet-cutes, first times and long time loves are tales well told with relatable characters you root for from beginning to end. Cream-of-the-crop editor Richard Labonté gathers the very best in gay romance each year for a collection that runs the gamut from hearts and flowers to down and dirty. In Best Gay Romance, the chocolate you may give to your lover will likely be used in many other creative ways! What Labonté does best is represent gay men of every age and every walk of life experiencing every kind of love. These heady, head-over-heels, heart-pounding stories of gay romance make for inspiring bedtime reading!
