pl19-29

There are so many amazing queer authors writing wonderful books–queer or otherwise. I could give you a whole list of authors whose books you should pick up right away. You can’t go on social media without stumbling over new ones daily. It’s wonderful, honestly!

But, today, I’m highlighting 6 of my favorite queer authors, in keeping with the number that I set when I started this series.

Please, though, be sure to share some of your own favorites that may not be mentioned here!

Four couples, four different stories — and one spicy Recipe for Romance from author Ari McKay!

Recipe-ebook-coverWelcome to Montgomery House, Charleston’s finest restaurant. When you walk in the front doors of the stately former mansion, you’ll be surrounded by true Southern charm. Owner Rhys Montgomery will personally welcome you, while the tantalizing scents of Executive Chef Stephen Pierce’s latest culinary masterpiece linger in the air. Enjoy a walk in the gardens or an elegant meal in the dining room, as you watch the love stories play out around you…

Bay Leaves and Bachelors — Clay Turner’s heart was broken by a wealthy man who said he was boring. When rich, outgoing restaurateur Rhys Montgomery sets his sights on the quiet academic, drawn in by Clay’s intelligence and sex appeal, he finds he has an uphill battle to win Clay’s trust. Can Rhys burrow his way into Clay’s heart, or will Clay’s insecurity become a wall between them that not even true love can break down?

Fennel and Forgiveness — Seven years ago, Max Boyd broke Darius Cooper’s heart. Darius wanted a commitment, and Max wanted to focus on his career in Georgia’s television industry. Their ten year difference in age and experience tore them apart, but fate throws them back together when Max arrives at the Montgomery House, where Darius now works. Will Southern Wedding Belles bring them a second chance for love or is Darius’s trust too shattered for Max to heal?

Ginger and Gentlemen — Ian Pierce has lived in his older brother Stephen’s shadow his entire life, always feeling second best. His best friend, Matt Davis, is the only person he trusts to be on his side. Despite being in dire financial straits, Ian wants to refuse Stephen’s request to film an episode of Mouth of the South at Ian’s restaurant, but the bonus money offered in the contract is too much to resist. He accepts without knowing the hefty bonus comes from Matt, not the production company. Will Ian feel betrayed by the one person he trusts above all others when he finds out, or will Matt’s desire to help Ian succeed even at his own financial risk take them from friends to lovers at last?

Cinnamon and Seduction — Chef Stephen Pierce has talent and a determination to succeed that is matched only by his fierce temper and prickly personality. Yet his long-suffering personal assistant, Robert Logan, has carried a torch for Stephen since the day they met. Everyone around Montgomery House knows Robert is in love with Stephen — everyone, that is, except Stephen himself. Can Rhys, Clay, Darius, Max, Ian, and Matt find a way to make Stephen see that Robert is the perfect man for him, or will even Robert’s legendary talent for matchmaking fail to win him the man he loves?

#PrideLibrary19: Day 26 #OwnVoices

pl19-26

Good morning, all, and welcome back for #OwnVoices day for Pride Library ’19!

Now, many of the books I’ve already recommended (and will continue to do so), fall under the #OwnVoices umbrella, which is when the author shares a marginalization with the main character and/or love interest in their story. In this case, the queer identity.

I strive to read #OV books because it often adds more nuance than someone who doesn’t share the marginalization can achieve, so I’m happy to recommend some. And please share some of your own recs!
