Friends to Lovers Romance

Gathered for the first time in one collection, these short stories from Lee Lynch represent a quarter century of passionate portrayals of lesbian women. Lynch chronicles the lives of old women who fall in love, a Black firefighter seeking her place in the feminist community, bar dykes unwilling to back down, the denizens of lesbian-owned Café Femmes, and Henny—who runs an urban fruit stand while regaling her baby butch assistants with tales from her life. Iconic characters from Lynch's novels also make an appearance: Frenchy Tonneau from The Swashbuckler and Annie Heaphy from Toothpick House.

Lee Lynch’s work is considered among the classics and a cornerstone in the large and permanent foundation of lesbian literature.

Desiring More

By Raven Sky

International Setting
People of Color

In this collection of steamy stories, a rich variety of lovers desire more—more from a lover, more from themselves, and more from life. Their erotic journeys in search of answers range from oh-so-hot to incendiary. 

Adventure with them on their exciting trysts in unusual locales—an empty theater, an ice fishing hut, a sex club, a remote hot spring. Powerful transformation occurs when opposites attract, whether it’s a rich housewife and her genderqueer gardener, or a shy divorcee and a latex-clad dominatrix.

This collection has something for everyone, from sweet tales of little old ladies reminiscing about a lifetime of lovemaking to gritty explorations of jaded sex workers finding true love together. A goddess and a Valkyrie. A model and a two-spirit, lone wolf. Even the classic English teacher meets gym teacher.

Spanning differences of race, age, and class, these queer couplings ultimately find pleasure and empowerment together.

Slices of Life

By Georgia Beers

How many people do you cross paths with on any given day? A dozen? Twenty? Fifty? Ever stop to wonder how many of them might have more in common with you than you realize? What about your mail carrier? Your Zumba instructor? Your mechanic? The girl at the cash register of the supermarket? Your waiter? The person behind you in line at the bank? The truth is, we each have contact— however fleeting—with countless people each day about whom we know little to nothing. 

Join award-winning author Georgia Beers as she explores this very concept in Slices of Life, her first collection of connected short stories. Each story gives you a glimpse into the life of a character who happens to be a lesbian. Some are in love. Some are in trouble. Some are just going about their day. And at some point during that day, each character will cross paths with another, and then you’ll get a glimpse into her life.

Hope. Fear. Desire. Despair. Promises. Betrayals.

Lesbian. Gay. Bisexual. Transgender. Questioning. Intersex.

This anthology of short stories gives voice to the rising generation as they define what it means to grow up queer in the twenty-first century. What is it like to grow up in a society that embraces you in certain ways but discriminates against you in others? How do you choose a label from the alphabet soup, and should you even have to? By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, comical and caustic, these stories, imagined and told by youth across America, provide a snapshot of queerness at the dawn of the new millennium.
