Gay Erotic Romance Novels
The Best in Gay Erotic Romance
The romance novel, a static and predictable genre, is undergoing an evolution of sorts: story lines written about gay men. There's no gender ID check by who reads these novels and surprisingly it seems that the biggest readership are straight women.
The authors want the books shelved with romance novels, not gay literature. Most of the books are written by straight women writing the stories that they would want to read.
"Whether your romance is m/f or m/m, love is the same. It is about two people, heart and soul, fighting for something beautiful, something worth fighting for."
Timeless Stories with an age old theme
It seems strange on the surface--gay male romance novels for straight women--but maybe this is just the latest iteration of the age-old against-the-odds, forbidden fruit love story. Whether it's the Capulet who can't be with the Montague, the princess who can't be with the stable boy, the beauty who can't be with the beast, the countless Hollywood leading couples who can't be together because someone is getting ready to marry another, or the two Georgian naval officers who will be hanged if they are discovered, isn't it the same basic story inspiring the romantic imaginations of women through the ages? They can't be together, so they must.

This Month's Recommendation:
Saving Valor (Fanged Love #1) by Amber Kell
While at a kennel purchasing guard dogs, Valor discovers a shifter who pleads for release. Intrigued, the master vampire pays to free the werehound, unaware his moment of compassion will change his life. Caden's goal is to get as far away from the area as possible. His brother's pack beat him and left him for dead, and he needs to put distance between them before Jameson realizes he's still alive and comes after him again. Little does he realize the vampire who freed him has other intentions.
Valor has taken the unusual task for someone in his position of finding his own guard dogs. Valor is a two-thousand-year-old master vampire whose duty is to protect his tribe; however, because of increased danger from the hunters Valor wants to ensure the tribe’s safety. While at the pound, he stumbles across a werehound in shifted form. Valor doesn’t realize that saving the spoiled shifter is going to change is life.
Caden and Valor have a dynamic relationship. It was amazing the calming effect Caden had on Valor from their first meeting. While Caden was more than capable of taking care of himself, Valor felt it was his duty to do so and made no bones about it. I also loved that like any good alpha male, Valor was highly possessive of Caden. I was pleasantly surprised by the tribe member who had it in for Valor. I can honestly say I didn’t see that one coming.
Saving Valor is an enjoyable read that’s full of action and a sweet romance. It is definitely worth taking the time to read.Saving Valor is the first book in the Fanged Love series.
