Lesbian Fiction

Twice Shy

By Aurora Rey

Sometimes, you get a second chance at love. Sometimes, you hook up with your ex and remember why you broke up in the first place.

Amanda Russo knows better than to give her failed marriage another try, but the brief fling reminds her there’s more to life than work and parenting. When the architect she hires to remodel her bakery turns out to be as charming as she is talented, Amanda finds herself ready to take a chance on new love. The only problem? Her ex-wife didn’t get the memo.

For Quinn Sullivan, the sting of divorce is still fresh. Getting set up by pretty much everyone she knows hasn’t inspired her to give love another shot. Meeting Amanda does. Sure, they’re working together, but that’s not a deal breaker. Amanda’s ex might be another story.

 

Praise from Publishers Weekly: "[A] tender, foodie romance about a pair of middle aged lesbians who find partners in each other and rediscover themselves along the way...Rey’s cute, occasionally steamy, romance reminds readers of the giddy intensity falling in love brings at any age, even as the characters negotiate the particular complexities of dating in midlife—meeting the children, dealing with exes, and revealing emotional scars. This queer love story is as sweet and light as one of Bake My Day’s famous cream puffs."

Best Practice

By Carsen Taite

A Legal Affairs Romance | Book 3

Perry Clark takes pride in her legal work for a needy nonprofit. When disaster strikes, leaving her unemployed and homeless, her sister Campbell comes to the rescue with a job offer. Perry accepts reluctantly—working for corporate clients is only temporary, right? But after Campbell assigns Grace, Perry’s childhood crush, as her mentor, Perry’s heart might be making longer-term plans.

Grace Maldonado remembers Perry Clark as her best friend’s sometimes annoying, often rebellious, little sister, so she isn’t prepared when she discovers Perry is now brilliant and gorgeous—though still bullheaded—and challenges her at every turn. When she isn’t arguing with Perry, Grace is fighting a growing attraction she can’t seem to ignore. Because not only is it wrong to fall in love with your best friend’s sister, Perry has no intention of sticking around.

Keeper

By Sydney Quinne

Andy walked around the bar counter. “I’m happy. I need…want a normal life. It was nice seeing you, though.”

Shit, she hadn't seen that coming. She scrambled onto the nearest bar stool, gunning for the Sig Sauer P266 hidden in her office, when the Taser zapped her in the back.

Imagine knowing someone is going to die. Dreaming it. Almost feeling the knife slip in… 

Will you try to prevent it if you can?

Andy Bouchard was a keeper. Someone who had to look after women with particular talents. Forced out of retirement to see what a newcomer—feisty math wizard Isabelle Templeton—can deliver, she has to prevent one last murder before she’s allowed to return to her safe, ordinary life.
