Best Gay Romance: 2010
"Best Gay Romance 2010" covers every romantic possibility with first love, true love, wake-up sex, makeup sex and everything in between. Richard Labonte has gathered a sensational collection of stories about finding love at home, at work, at any age, and often in the most unexpected places. Contributor David Holly's "meet cute" hook-up in "Guy Sydney," is a thoroughly modern love story, while Elazarus Wills's dramatic "A Companion for the Road" shows that many things get better with age. Trebor Healy's New Orleans star-crossed lovers in "Trunk" encounter voodoo, hoodoo, and an unexpectedly sweet surprise. Each story is redolent with romance, great sex, and characters who are fully fleshed out in more ways than one. Sometimes rowdy, always randy, and surprisingly tender, these tales celebrate the coming together of souls as well as bodies. Whether happily ever after or just a happy ending, Labonte continues to raise the bar on gay love stories.
