Olivia Stone lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has always been drawn to exploring identity, poking and prodding at the tension between what people show the world and who they really are. Her writing centers around this theme mixed with humor, hot sex scenes, and a lot of heart. In addition to writing fiction, Olivia is also a multi-instrumentalist who writes and records her own music.
There is something about the love of men for men that speaks to the heart. Masculinity in passion is more than muscle and attitude. It’s in the mix of hardness and tenderness, the burning gaze and the soft caress. The struggle with expectation to be tough and the need to be vulnerable. There is something about these stories that show men opening–sometimes eagerly, sometimes reluctantly–to love.
For your pleasure, we offer you men who reclaim lost love, men who find themselves in the love of another man, and men who defy oppression for the sake of love. These are stories that show that an ending is not necessarily the end and that softness is not the same as weakness. In all, eleven stories of love and romance between men from ForbiddenFiction’s top authors, including award-winners Julian Keys and Lynn Kelling. To you, our readers, we bring the love.
Lucas Walker is a barista by day and a drag queen by night, working toward making a name for himself in Los Angeles. Everything seems to be falling into place, except in the romance department. The guys he’s met so far don’t seem to understand that just because Lucas does drag, that doesn’t mean he’s submissive. Lucas is looking for someone he can push and challenge, someone who truly wants to submit. When Connor walks into the drag bar one night, Lucas thinks he may have finally found what he’s looking for.
