LGBT Day 6 : Kat from ARe Cafe gives her top 10 recommendations for LGBT books (@AReCafe)

Posted April 6, 2014 by Nix in Active Giveaway, Events, LGBT / 9 Comments

Hello! This is Kat from, and I am pleased to be a part of Scorching Reviews’ LGBT Event. is part of the All Romance family, a place where you will find blogs by your favorite authors and reviews of recent releases, especially LGBT romances. For years, readers have come to ARe for the latest M/M romances in particular, but we are happy to offer all colors of the rainbow. Whether you are looking for an exclusive lesbian pairing or a bisexual polyamorous or menage story, we have them…and sometimes they have shifters and starships!

Every day readers come to AReCafe for recommendations what to tackle next on the TBR stack. We could take up Scorching Review’s blog for months, but in the interest of sharing the wealth with other guests this month we’ll keep our pick to ten. If you crave some recently-released LGBT to keep you scrolling pages at night, here’s a great to-do list.

In no particular order…

Bonds of Denial by Lynda Aicher – Put an ex-military man in an exclusive sex club as security, add a gorgeous escort retired from the business, and feel the sexual tension crackle.

Brian’s Mate by Hollis Shiloh – Shifters often find that search for a mate challenging. When one simply happens into a wolf ceremony, Brian steps forward to claim him.

Of White Snakes and Misshapen Owls by Debra Hyde – Following the disappearance of a pharmacist, Charlotte sets out to solve the mystery with companion Joanna Wilson in a manner befitting of Holmes and Watson. A great read for those who enjoy historical fiction, mystery, and moments of eroticism.

Cliff by Bailey Bradford – Intrigue, leopard shifters, and hot manlove…who could ask for more?

Iron & Velvet by Alexis Hall – Now, this isn’t a romance, it’s a dark paranormal mystery with a wise-cracking detective dealing with all manner of bloodsuckers, including a few lesbians with the hots for P.I. Kate.

Lovestruck by KT Grant – A mature, savvy businesswoman pursues a younger lover in this story about passion in the big city.

Inside Out by Andrew Grey – A bear named Bull meets a twink named Zack on the dance floor. How long until the horizontal bop? Read on.

Seducing Professor Coyle by Darien Cox – Professor/student romances are a popular trope at ARe. Just thinking about detention gets us excited, and this is one M/M story to try.

Switch Hitter by Roz Lee – Two favorite pastimes in one hot story. There’s no crying in baseball, but we’ll make allowances for other things. 😉

Ball & Chain by Abigail Roux – Roux’s Cut & Run series is one of the most popular M/M series at ARe. The latest installment finds our heroes at a wedding, but trouble seems to follow.
