The list author says: "I've found a few novels to be wonderfully endearing examples of gay romance, so have included them here. Ranging from romance to charged erotica, these novels also have a certain quality that I found make them stand out. All of these books are available in electronic Kindle format."
"The first gay romance book I bought, and still my favorite. I fell in love with every character in the book. The plot speeds along at a brisk pace, a ton of interesting things happen, the story progresses naturally, and the book has a healthy dose of romance without resorting to erotica. It's my favorite. It's a great story and highly addictive."
"An incredible romance novel. With stunning focus on the two primary characters, their relationship is chronicled over several years. The focus is so tight and detailed, you discover just how much emotion you have invested in their relationship when troubles arise."
"The story may occasionally get sidetracked, but it gets on track quickly again. What we wind up with are two very compelling and richly-nuanced characters in a thrilling story. There's a healthy dose of eroticism, and a lot of good old-fashioned romance. It's quite moving at times and wonderfully fun."
"A deliciously funny and romantic tale. Over the top and hopelessly optimistic, it's totally endearing with delightful characters and addicting wit. Rampant hormones, college pranks, breakneck golfcarts, and aggressive squirrels... I love this book."
"With wonderfully nuanced and complex characters, Caught Running is a joy to read. Each man slowly feels a growing attraction to another they believe is straight, and the subtle details as this passion grows is a joy to read."
"Joely Skye is a master of bringing you into the heads of her characters, and she does it so elegantly in this book, the scenes become charged. She excels in writing highly-flawed characters, and the ones in this book generate a huge level of sympathy. With a combination of romance and eroticism and thrilling excitement, this book is a favorite of mine."
"For FBI agents Ty and Zane, it's hate at first sight when they're teamed up to stop a serial killer. Hate eventually turns to love, though both men would never admit it. Passion, thrills, and incredibly detailed and rich characters make this novel truly stand out. It, and its sequels, are exceptional."
"Straight werewolf Chay finally finds the mate fate has chosen for him and is stunned to see it's a man. Delightfully witty, humorous, interesting, and exciting, these two characters bring this story to life. It and its sequel, With Caution, are joys to read."
"Placed in the old wild west, this romance has all the joys of traditional western stories: gunfights, land battles, racial bigotry, frontier life. Detailed, complex characters and a complex plot tie it all together into a highly enjoyable read."
"This is the first book in the Hawkins Ranch series. The three Hawkins brothers, Connor, Cain, and Caleb, are demons who have left their clans and want to live normal lives now. This first story is not a gay romance, but it does establish the characters for the rest. When Connor falls for Cassie, does Cassie love him enough to perform the ritual to make Connor human? They only get one shot at it."
"In this rich and gripping novel, Cain, the 2nd of the Hawkins brother, falls for Luke. The problem? Same-sex relationships are forbidden by his demon clan, and the punishment is death. When love can not be denied, Cain's only recourse is to just accept the short time he has left with Luke. That is, unless Caleb is right and there's a way for Cain to become human."
"The third and final Hawkins brother, Caleb, finds love and humanity. A fascinating tale of two straight men who fall for each other. The ending is absolutely endearing! NOTE: "ReneCade" and "Ride" happen before this story and should be read first as Jake is introduced there."
"A wonderful story about two bisexual men who only realize they're bi when they fall for each other while commiserating their sad lives over beer. Witty, touching, romantic, funny, and thoroughly engrossing, Evan and Matt leave a lasting impression. It's a great story!"
"The sequel to Faith and Fidelity. Evan still doesn't consider himself gay, doesn't want people to know about Matt, and it's starting to drive a wedge between them. A WONDERFUL sequel in these two compelling characters' lives."
"My favorite of the Wolf Creek Pack series. With a higher level of romance and sentimentality than the other books in the series, the two werewolf characters are compelling and lovable. A highly enjoyable read!"
