Some things can be fixed with a little duct tape... but a broken heart ain't one of 'em.Avery Blake has spent years getting by all on her own in a big house on the countryside. As a contractor, there's not much room for emotion in her male-dominated profession, and she's perfectly content to keep people out of her private life, too. After watching her elderly neighbor, Nora, be torn away from her long-time lover by heartless relatives, Avery has seen what it's like to love and to lose, and she'd rather skip the whole thing and focus on work (and the occasional meaningless fling) instead.Some relationships can be fixed with a little breathing room... and some are too far gone.Hannah Grayson has nothing but room to breathe when she finds out her Great-Aunt Nora has passed and left her a house in rural Indiana. Fleeing a dysfunctional and controlling relationship in New York, she moves into the house because she's got nowhere else to go.Disasters start piling up almost as soon as the plane touches down - the house is in disrepair, Nora's grandchildren are trying to evict her, and the gorgeous but chilly woman across the street seems to have a problem with Hannah's presence.When a pipe bursts on her first night in the house, Hannah has no choice but to run across the street and beg for help from Avery. The rest, as they say, is history...

This isn't what I imagined my life would be. I care about Chelsea, I do, she's been my best (and only) friend since we were teenagers. I love her, but I don't feel that passionate love that people always talk about. Who knows? Maybe that kind of romanticized love only exists in books and movies. That's what I have always told myself, at least. But after I meet Aidan, I know that's not true. For the first time, I've met someone who makes me feel passionate love. And I can't deny my feelings any longer, even if it turns my entire life upside down. I've got my bakery, I've got my friends, life is good. But I suppose it would be nice to have a romantic interest in my life. In this conservative town, I've dated just about every gay man I can find. And while some have been nice enough, nobody has really clicked for me. I know I should probably move out of this town to open up my options, but I've got my bakery here and I can't imagine giving up my business. It's in my bakery that I meet Miles. He and his fiancee, Chelsea, are looking to design their wedding cake. Only he doesn't seem that interested in the cake... or her, for that matter. But I do keep catching him staring at me... This standalone gay-for-you novel comes complete with HEA ending!

Travels in a gay nation

For two years, Philip Gambone traveled the length and breadth of the United States, talking candidly with LGBTQ people about their lives. In addition to interviews from David Sedaris, George Takei, Barney Frank, and Tammy Baldwin, Travels in a Gay Nation brings us lesser-known voices—a retired Naval officer, a transgender scholar and “drag king,” a Princeton philosopher, two opera sopranos who happen to be lovers, an indie rock musician, the founder of a gay frat house, and a pair of Vermont garden designers. In this age when contemporary gay America is still coming under attack, Gambone captures the humanity of each individual. For some, their identity as a sexual minority is crucial to their life’s work; for others, it has been less so, perhaps even irrelevant. But, whether splashy or quiet, center-stage or behind the scenes, Gambone’s subjects have managed—despite facing ignorance, fear, hatred, intolerance, injustice, violence, ridicule, or just plain indifference—to construct passionate, inspiring lives.
