The lives of Semrow´s characters in this debut collection are like the charged particles in the atmosphere before the storm; these stories, while brief, are torrid and turbulent, as relationships crash apart, people find themselves damp with more than tears, and the silver linings of the storm clouds remain tantalizing, out of reach. 1.

Nick Nolan’s Double Bound reunites us with many of the characters introduced in his delightful Strings Attached: Jeremy, now in a committed relationship with fun-loving, hot-headed Carlo; Arthur, Jeremy’s protector, confidant, and mentor; and Katharine, Jeremy’s wealthy benefactress, still hiding a slew of secrets and hidden agendas. This sequel displays the same wit, verve, style, and sense of adventure that were so engaging and fresh in Strings Attached. And where Strings Attached playfully alluded to Pinocchio, Double Bound has fun with the ´´Jack and the Beanstalk´´ fable. Just as Strings Attached was Jeremy’s story, Double Bound is Arthur’s, exploring his troubled relationship with disapproving parents and his precarious years as a gay Marine. However, there’s an added element this time out: the stakes are higher, the repercussions more dire, and the choices harder and more consequential. There is a darker feel to this novel, which not only adds depth to the characters but highlights Mr. Nolan’s growth and confidence as a storyteller. We’ve moved beyond high-school concerns into real-world choices, where outcomes are not always tied up in neat ´´happily ever after” packages.´´The plot moves along swiftly with great suspense...Double Bound is one of those books that is not easily forgotten...this is the kind of read that will haunt you.´´ - Amos Lassen, Literary Pride 1.

I have quite the long, hard, veiny problem on my hands.... I´m traveling across the country on a bus, going to see my girlfriend Stacy who goes to school in another state. But, here´s the thing - I actually feel no real attraction to Stacy whatsoever. In fact, I´m secretly gay, but I was brought up in such a strict environment that I´ve never really been honest with myself about it. I´m mostly dating Stacy to keep up appearances more than anything, and prior to my departure, I made the stupid mistake of taking a bunch of arousal medication to get me ready in case intimacy takes place when I get over to her place. Now, I´m stuck with an unshakable case of erection after erection, and I feel as though there´s no way for me to get around it through the remainder of the trip. That is, until a friendly, muscular stranger boards the bus and gives me something of a helping hand.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Veronica Heart.

Jay Quinn´s Lambda-nominated novels transcend the traditional gay novel, exploring universal issues of marriage, aging parents, addiction, and attraction, all while presenting unique characters and pause-register drama. In Metes and Bounds, surf, sand, and sex meet in the macho world of construction workers. For narrator Matt, ´´the greatest comfort of surfing comes in the sureness and instinct.´´ Matt is not just coming of age, he´s coming out, and in the sun-bleached world of the North Carolina beaches his burgeoning sexuality can toss as many curves as a wave. Through his longings and self-discovery, Matt knows he cannot let others triumph over being the man he knows to be. As he says, ´´Being a surfer meant you got out, faced your own fears, and did it.´´ So too does Matt, in this stirring, memorable novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Blogs.

He´s been working for an environmental activism group, but he´s out of control, trying to wipe out the memories of a tough childhood in his efforts to save the planet. When an accident at sea costs the lives of his colleagues, he crash-lands back in his hometown in the far north of Scotland, lonely and at rock bottom. It´s the last place on earth he expects to find comfort or friendship. But a strange young man is hard at work in the abandoned craft village where Mallory used to take refuge. He´s compellingly gorgeous. It takes Mallory a while to get him talking, and when he does, he thinks his new friend is delusional. Vivian believes he´s mastered the technique of cold fusion in his makeshift lab: a semimythical source of free energy which could change the world. To Mallory´s astonishment, Vivian convinces him. And others have been convinced too - malevolent powers who wouldn´t think twice about killing Viv to get at his discovery. He´s brilliant but completely unworldly. All Mal can do to protect him is take him on the run. They´re a wildly mismatched pair. Thrown together in the teeth of danger, they bond despite their differences. Soon Mal knows there´s nothing he wouldn´t do to save Viv, and attraction springs up between them like fire. But Mal is up against an enemy within, and Viv´s time is running out.... 1.
