So... I thought I could share the names of my favorite stories and the links to where you can get them.
I will divide them in five categories: Mystery, Futuristic, Cowboys, Fantasy, Historical and Shape-shifters.
My favorite M/M author EVER is found under this section:
My favorite M/M romance is the "Adrien English series" whose fifth and final Volume will come out this December. I'm really looking forward to it. All his stories are awesome but this one is definitely the BEST.
I've heard of some people who put his stories up for free download but that is really the lowest. If you see them somewhere for free downloading PLEASE don't download them!
If you like what someone does the least you can do is support him by buying his works. Don't you think so? By putting his works to free download not only are those people keeping him from earning what he is due (and believe me authors of this genre don't earn a lot because it's not yet Mainstream literature) but you are also committing a crime. It's like robbing a book in a Library. The worst is that in the case of this author some of his stories are for charity and people still want to download them for free! That is almost like grabbing the money of a beggar or like someone said it's as if you would "reach your hand in the basket at church when you're feeling a little short of cash". It's not like with scanlation where the links are generally put down when the Manga gets licensed and where the people who put them on the net also did some work. The had to scanlate, edit and translate the Manga before they put it on the net. Whereas here these people simply take the file and put it on the net! They cannot even say they did something!
And really e-books are not that expensive. They cost three times less than paperbacks. And you don't even have to pay delivery.^^'
Anyway, now that that is out of the way: I really recommend you buy his books. They are worth every cent!! ^o^
-Details of the Hunt by Laura Baumbach(http://www.laurabaumbach.com/detailsoft
If you like stories that take place in the future with sexy aliens that hook up with sexy pirates that came from the past this one is for you. The sex scenes are HOT and the story is really nice. The plot is not simply there to put both protagonist together, it has a bit more background than that. Actually most of her stories are worth reading if you want to read something sexy but simple. This one is the one I like best because it has a bit more plot than meet-like-sex-sex-sex.
-My fair Captain by J.L. Langley (http://samhainpublishing.com/print/my-f
Sexy, cute, the sex scenes are a bit to SMBD to my tastes but nothing too shocking. Very nice to read and I definitely recommend it.
A definite YES on my part is Bareback by Chris Owen
Unfortunately it cannot be found as an e-book. It's one of my favorite M/M romances. The beginning of the story is a lot o sex sex and more sex but then the plot thickens. I really liked it! There is also a Sequel to this story but since the interesting part is seeing how the characters' relationship evolves it doesn't hold the same appeal to me that this one does.
Dealing Straight by Emily Veinglory(http://www.loose-id.com/prod-Dealing_St
is a nice little read about two men in the wild wild west but there is not a lot I can say about it. The best would be that you simply read an excerpt and decide if you like it or not.
I will put my Fantasy recommendations in a top three kind of fashion with my favorite on the top.
The Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling
I hesitated between this and the Last Herald Mage series for the "favorite" position. But after a lot of consideration I like this one better.
I have only put the link to where to buy the first of the series, it's then up to you to find the others. It's really simple, you click on the Authors name in Amazon and there you have it.
It's really an amazing read. Even people who don't like M/M are still fan of this series because the plot is so awesome. If you like Fantasy this one is a MUST. Her other books are also amazing.
The Last Herald Mage by Mercedes Lackey
Don't let yourself be put of by the cover of the book. This one is a MUST READ for every fantasy fan. The M/M is a bit too understated but it's still really good.
Dark Heart by Thom Lane(http://www.loose-id.com/prod-Dark_Heart-7
Unfortunately there are only two books by this author so far. I really like his works. This one "Dark Heart" is about a slave in another world who falls in love with a Master Mage that at first doesn't care about him at all. In the end he still wins his heart. Kind off. I like the atmosphere of this World Thom Lane invented and I also really like the characters. It's a bit SMBD but a very nice read.
There is also a Sequel! Healing Heart.
It's not about the same characters as the first book, but these also appear and have a major role in this tome. It's much sweeter, so to speak, than "Dark Heart". In my opinion the hero is a bit of a pushover, but it created a nice balance with his slaves' behavior.
I really liked it, although I would have preferred a little bit more of Angst...
(What can I say? I like to see the heroes suffer. ;P)
Like the first book, highly recommended!!
Discreet Young Gentleman by M.J. Pearson
It's my favorite Historical romance. For a long time it was also my favorite M/M novel.
Both books by this author are really awesome but I still like this one better.
Don't let yourself be put of by the horrible covers. I still don't understand why she kept that artist for her covers after the first book... but well. What's important is what's in the inside, right?^^'
Vamps & Shape-shifters
Dolphin Dreams by Jules Jones (http://www.loose-id.com/prod-Dolphin_Dr
I generally don't like the M/M/M but this one is the exception to the rule. When you think "Shape-shifters" you normally think of Werewolves right? Well... this time it's more like Were-dolphins... or something.
I really liked this story. Even if it's not what I would normally read the author managed to make this into a sexy, cute, romantic story you wish would go on when you arrive at the end. I am still hoping for a sequel... even though I know it's not coming...^^'
Unnatural Worth by Mya (http://www.loose-id.com/prod-An_Unnatur
Sexy Vampires hooking up with hot Werewolves anyone? ^w^ What more can I say?
It's cute and hot at the same time.
A read I really enjoyed.
