The Prodigal Daughter by J.P. Garland

OUT NOW! The Prodigal Daughter by J.P. Garland

Beth Jenkins, raised in an Irish Catholic family outside Chicago, with her father a retired Chicago cop, would not acknowledge to her family that she was gay, fearing how they would react. She moved to New York, visiting her home occasionally. At Christmas just over three years before the story begins, and against her better judgment, she responds to the when-I-you-going-to-find-a-man question by coming out.

Any hopes of staying are shattered when her father says he will not sit at the same table with this creature. For three years she speaks to neither her parents. Then her sister calls. “Dad is dying. He’s turned over a new leaf.” She agrees to come, but only with her girlfriend, with whom she is living in Brooklyn.

This is the story of their journey to Beth’s home and what happens when she gets there.

Break and Enter by Etienne

OUT NOW! Break and Enter by Etienne

George Martin and his partner Mike live a comfortable life in Jacksonville with their Irish setter, but something’s missing. Maybe George, a captain in the sheriff’s office, has just been working too hard again. There’s been a rash of break-ins in the area, and the homes targeted all seem to belong to older gay men.

Then when the time finally comes for George and Mike to take their vacation, they pack up and head to their mountain cabin for two weeks-only to find a small boy living in their generator shed. Robbie, who bonds with George right away, has witnessed an unspeakable tragedy, but that is just the beginning of the trouble.

Alone in the world apart from a very ill maternal grandmother, Robbie stands the very real risk of becoming a ward of the state if George and Mike can’t convince a bigoted judge to change his mind. Meanwhile, George still has a job to do: solve the break-ins-and a murder — and track down who’s responsible.

Tortilla Pie by Rick R. Reed

OUT NOW! Tortilla Pie by Rick R. Reed

When Anderson, homeless on the streets of Seattle, first spies Josh, a volunteer at TeenCare, he immediately falls for him, even though TeenCare forbids client/volunteer interaction. Anderson thinks: “And speaking of noticed, I think I was, just a few minutes ago. One of the volunteers was coming by and we locked eyes. You know, the way two guys do. Two gay guys, anyway, who like what they see. It’s not like a casual glance — those only last for a second or maybe two at the most — but when two gay dudes notice each other, man, that eye-to-eye lingers. You know what I’m sayin’?

“And that boy? He was fine. Or to roll back to one of my mama’s expressions from back in her day — he was fly.”

In spite of the youth center’s policy of volunteers and clients interacting beyond the most superficial ways, will love discover a way around the policy, so Josh and Anderson can be together?
