Content warning: Contains explicit M/M sexual activity, including masturbation. Excerpt: ´´Looks like I found your sweet spot,´´ Mr. Dacey smirked, relentlessly stimulating the small organ again and again. ´´You act like you don´t want me touching you, but I can make you need it. You said that you´ve never been interested in other men, but I will show you all of the pleasures that a man can bestow upon you that you would never get from a woman. Your body belongs to me now, and I will make you a slave to your desires.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mateo Reate.

When sculptor and author Barb Davis is given an NEA grant to pair original feminist sculptures with searing first-person essays on transitions in women´s lives, she organizes a two-week writing retreat with 12 of the best, brightest, and most notorious lesbian authors in the business. But in between regularly scheduled happy hours and writing sessions, the women enter a tournament bass-fishing competition, receive life coaching from a wise-cracking fish named Phoebe, and uncover a subterranean world of secrets and desires that is as varied and elusive as the fish that swim in the waters of Lake Champlain. Set on the beautiful shores of Vermont´s Lake Champlain, Backcast is richly populated with an expansive cast of endearing and outrageous characters who battle writer´s block, quirky locals, personal demons, unexpected attractions, and even each other during their two-week residency. For Barb and each of her 12 writers, the stakes in this fast-moving story are high, but its emotional and romantic payoffs are slow and sweet. Filled with equal parts laugh-out-loud humor and breathtaking pathos, Backcast serves up a sometimes irreverent, sometimes sobering look at the hidden lives of women, and how they laugh, love, lose, and blunder through their own search for meaning. 1.

Tristan Green left his small English town for Manhattan and a job at a high-profile ad agency, but can´t seem to find his bearings. He spends a lot of time working late at night, eating and sleeping alone, and even more time meandering around his neighborhood staring into the darkened windows of shops. One night when he´s feeling really low, he wanders by a beautiful little bakery with the lights still on. The baker invites him in, and sometime during that night Tristan realizes it´s the first time he´s really smiled in months. Henry Livingston has always been the odd duck, the black sheep, the baker in an old money family where pedigree is everything and quirky personalities are hidden behind dry martinis and thick Upper East Side townhouse facades. Henry is drawn to Tristan´s easy country charm, dry English wit, and everything that is so different from Henry´s world. Their new romance is all buttercream frosting and sugared violets until Tristan´s need to fit in at work makes him do something he desperately wishes he could undo. Tristan has to prove to Henry that he can be trusted again before they can indulge in the sweet stuff they´re both craving. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John-Paul Barrel.
