Jay Quinn´s Lambda-nominated novels transcend the traditional gay novel, exploring universal issues of marriage, aging parents, addiction, and attraction, all while presenting unique characters and pause-register drama. In Metes and Bounds, surf, sand, and sex meet in the macho world of construction workers. For narrator Matt, ´´the greatest comfort of surfing comes in the sureness and instinct.´´ Matt is not just coming of age, he´s coming out, and in the sun-bleached world of the North Carolina beaches his burgeoning sexuality can toss as many curves as a wave. Through his longings and self-discovery, Matt knows he cannot let others triumph over being the man he knows to be. As he says, ´´Being a surfer meant you got out, faced your own fears, and did it.´´ So too does Matt, in this stirring, memorable novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Blogs.

Nick Nolan’s Double Bound reunites us with many of the characters introduced in his delightful Strings Attached: Jeremy, now in a committed relationship with fun-loving, hot-headed Carlo; Arthur, Jeremy’s protector, confidant, and mentor; and Katharine, Jeremy’s wealthy benefactress, still hiding a slew of secrets and hidden agendas. This sequel displays the same wit, verve, style, and sense of adventure that were so engaging and fresh in Strings Attached. And where Strings Attached playfully alluded to Pinocchio, Double Bound has fun with the ´´Jack and the Beanstalk´´ fable. Just as Strings Attached was Jeremy’s story, Double Bound is Arthur’s, exploring his troubled relationship with disapproving parents and his precarious years as a gay Marine. However, there’s an added element this time out: the stakes are higher, the repercussions more dire, and the choices harder and more consequential. There is a darker feel to this novel, which not only adds depth to the characters but highlights Mr. Nolan’s growth and confidence as a storyteller. We’ve moved beyond high-school concerns into real-world choices, where outcomes are not always tied up in neat ´´happily ever after” packages.´´The plot moves along swiftly with great suspense...Double Bound is one of those books that is not easily forgotten...this is the kind of read that will haunt you.´´ - Amos Lassen, Literary Pride 1.

Lord Oliver Marsden has a secret. He´s been in love with his childhood friend for years, though Vincent´s never shown an interest in him beyond friendship.

Desperate to be with Vincent, Oliver orchestrates a deception, switching places with the brothel´s employee. When Oliver arrives at the bedchamber, he´s in for another surprise. Restraints and a leather bullwhip? Apparently Vincent isn´t as conservative as he appears. Lord Vincent Prescot has a secret of his own. One kept locked away and only indulged once a month. But this month´s appointment is different. The mysterious man is so perfect, so beautiful in his submission, rousing protective instincts Vincent can´t deny.

Lord Vincent Prescot´s life couldn´t be better. Thriving investments, well-respected by his peers, and mind blowing sex with a man who submits to his every desire - what more could he want? Lord Oliver Marsden should be more than happy with his life. He´s been in love with Vincent for over a decade, and six months ago the impossible happened and they became lovers. But since then, nothing has changed. More specifically, Vincent hasn´t changed. Oliver has tried to be patient - it took a lot for Vincent to accept the fact he preferred men. But what felt like a tiny distance between them six months ago now feels like an ever-widening chasm. Why can´t Vincent stay the night? Is it too much to ask for Vincent to call him Oliver and not Marsden? He knows Vincent cares for him, but does Vincent love him? Then Vincent´s father asks him for a favor - one that involves marriage. If Vincent agrees, he´ll have the respect he´s craved from his father his entire life, but he could lose Oliver. Nor does Oliver make the decision easy. To keep Oliver, he´ll have to do more than deny his father. He´ll have to give Oliver his heart.

´´We´re getting the band back together.´´ Those six words send a chill down Miki St. John´s spine, especially when they´re spoken with a nearly religious fervor by his brother-in-all-but-blood, Damien Mitchell.

There´s something magical about being on tour, especially when traveling in a van with no roadies, managers, or lovers to act as a buffer.

As they travel from gig to gig, the band is haunted by past mistakes and personal demons, but they forge on. For Miki, Damie, Forest, and Rafe, the stage is where they all truly come alive, and the music they play is as important to them as the air they breathe.
