Sun-soaked beaches, glittering blue pool surfaces and oceans painted by an orange-hued sunset have one thing in common: they're the perfect background for falling in love. Who hasn't felt that first wave of butterflies rise deep in their belly while pool side? Or that first quickening of the pulse when lounging on a lush patch of grass during a music festival? Summer is the perfect time to indulge in that sudden rush of first love or, equally so, the warm grip of long-fostered feelings for another woman. This collection of fourteen stories runs the gamut of lesbian holiday romance stories. An Australian cookery course, a Belfast coffee shop, and even a romance writers' conference are some of the backdrops for the summer love that unfolds in this lesbian romance anthology. Tamsin Flowers's Drive Me Crazy takes place during Glastonbury, while Katya Harris's sensual tale of passion between long-time lovers is entirely set by the side of the pool. Newcomer Brooke Winter brings us an irresistible tale of a woman running into a Mistress she's played with in Spain, while Lucy Felthouse's heroine gets much more heat than she bargained for when she goes volcano-watching on Lanzarote. With stories by highly rated authors, including Annabeth Leong, Allison Wonderland, Erzabet Bishop and Harper Bliss, this collection is the perfect sensual companion to any holiday.

The Gay Detective Novel

Lesbian and Gay Main Characters and Themes in Mystery Fiction

Gertrude Stein called it "the only really modern novel form that has come into existence," yet the mystery genre was a century old before it featured its first gay main character in a novel. Since then, gay and lesbian detective fiction has been one of the fastest growing segments of the genre. It incorporates gay and lesbian cultural elements and offers crossover appeal. Its authors call upon a century of development in the mystery genre, while providing new, more accurate images of lesbians and gay men than generally found in mainstream literature and popular media. This groundbreaking study of gay and lesbian detective fiction examines mystery series and historically significant stand-alone novels published since the early 1960s. Part I is an overview that describes how these novels make gay and lesbian life visible and forge new, powerful images. It also examines how they fit into the larger history of mystery fiction. The series analyses in Part II are grouped according to the type of main character (police officer, private investigator, amateur sleuth, etc.). Each section discusses main and secondary characters of that type, characteristic themes for the group, and more. The analyses of individual series cover main characters, themes, plot points and other elements. Comments from authors interviewed for this book play a central role in those analyses. Part III lists series-spanning themes (e.g., homophobia, the closet, gay marriage) and the novels and series that address each of those themes.

Out Shore has been Harper’s main focus since her heart was broken years ago, but Genevieve may be the one to change that with her fresh perspective and charm. While both women enjoy what they learn about each other, Genevieve is most surprised by what she learns about herself. Pretending to be a lesbian has never felt more honest.

Tessa's life is perfect. She has everything a woman could want, a good job, a family that supports her, and a boyfriend, that only ever tries to make her happy. But somehow, even when she has all these things, she feels like her life is empty. When she lies to Raymond to escape her cut-and-paste life, she meets Beth, a whirlwind of a woman that takes her breath away. Too much alcohol, too little inhibition, and it ends in a night that confuses Tessa and leaves her perfect life a little skewed. She tries harder to make things work with Raymond, partly out of guilt because of what she's done, and partly because she struggles to change the fact that she's so unhappy when everything in her life tells her not to be. When she runs into Beth again, and says yes instead of no, her life turns upside down. She doesn't know who she is, what she wants, who she loves anymore. When she loses Raymond, it hurts more than she expected, but why is that a problem when she still has Beth? With so many questions she barrels forward, hoping that somewhere, some of her actions will offer answers.
