These gay erotic romance stories represent the type of stories we love to publish:
Not in the NFL by Terry O'Reilly
Gay Erotic Romance
Adam Davis isn't gay! He can't be -- he's a super star NFL quarterback and gay men don't survive in the NFL. But along comes Brendan Fletcher, an outstanding, Super Bowl-winning linebacker who awakens something in Adam, something Adam hadn't known was there. And now it's wakened, the quarterback will never be the same.
Despite the threat to their careers and their personal safety, Adam and Brendan find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other, starting something that grows from gratification of mutual needs to something more. Can these men of strength and power on the gridiron overcome the homophobia of their profession? Can they make what they have found stand for something more important than the fame and fortune of playing NFL football or even becoming Super Bowl champions?
Persistence of Memory by J.M. Snyder
Gay Futuristic Romance
Five years ago Joah was culled -- kidnapped by the government to be trained as a soldier. In the process, they erased his memory, destroying his past, his dreams, everything but his name. Armed with that alone, Joah escapes from the facility in search of someone to help him recall the man he used to be.
That person is Tobin, Joah's husband, who never gave up hope of finding him again. He refuses to believe that the strength of his love alone won't be enough to bring back Joah's memories of their shared lives, and he's determined to bring back the man beneath the soldier, the man he knows has to love him.
But an alarm in the chip blocking Joah's memories was triggered at his escape, and if it isn't removed soon, it will shriek his life away. Removing it won't bring back his past, and may destroy the present that Tobin has tried so hard to build between them. How can the love they once shared possibly survive?
NOTE: This e-book was a finalist for the 2008 EPPIE Award in the GLBT Category.

One morning he has to deliver a parcel to the mysterious Mr Christian O'Neill, who lives in an oddly-shaped mansion on the outskirts of town. Not much is known about Mr O'Neill, although there is certainly an abundance of rumours -- a faded rock star, a media-shy actor. Alexander can't wait to find out the answers for himself.
Rather than being odd, Christian turns out to be the most interesting person Alexander has ever met. In fact, he asks to come back, and with each consecutive visit, he learns more and more about Christian, and about the power of the mind and the wonders visualisation can bring.
But even as Alexander learns how to get what he thinks he wants, he loses Christian. Is it too late to find him again? And if he does, will what they had still be there?
