"It was the kind of first date you know will change your life forever, the kind for which 'first date' is much too casual to ever properly apply . . . She looked at me like she could fall for me, fall in love with me, or maybe like she already had. She looked at me like she wanted to know everything I had to say, to peek inside my brain and tease out the parts I kept delib ...more

A few days ago I decided to challenge myself. What was a genre I hadn't read much in? After a lot of thought, I challenged myself to read one m/m book and one f/f book. The m/m book was A Private Gentleman, and this is my lesbian book, suggested to me by being $1.99 on Book Bub.

The only other lesbian romance I've read (which is romance - not just, you know, not fiction that stars a lesbian character, I mean romance) was Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary which I read years and years ago, pre-GR.

The latest edition of these collections is edited by Radclyffe, I must confess this is the first one I have read, and thoroughly enjoyed it, the stories really take you away from the cold winter here, we are sent to Hawaii, various hot locations in America with lots of hot women... my favourite line of the book which made me laugh out loud was from the story 'Panacea' by Colette Moody ' An arse so magical David Copperfield might climb out of it at any moment' brilliant. I loved this book as it m ...more

Bah, humbug. Romance is not my favourite flavour of fiction, possibly because I find much of it unbelievable. Okay, I know this genre largely consists of wish-fulfillment, but I often have trouble gagging the voice of my inner cynic while reading breathless descriptions of instant attraction between soul-mates and blithe predictions of happy-ever-after. (Really? For the next fifty years or so, with no arguments about money, relatives, children, pets or other women?)

Now that I’ve given my disclai
The stories selected for this anthology are not only well written, but also quite different from one another. The variety is immense. We have a supernatural story from Radclyffe, an older couple of women in REBOUND by Charlotte Dare that is a unique story featuring a very sensual couple, CAMELLIAS by Anna Meadows, and THE PANACEA by Colette Moody where a dare turns into an extremely hot and arousing meeting of two women in a coffee shop.

Disclaimer: My story "Dirty Laundry" is in this anthology.

I love the Best Lesbian Romance series. It's one of my favorite annual anthologies to come out each year.

As always, some GREAT stories I loved, some that were a good read, and a couple that, although well written, weren't to my personal taste.

The standout story for me was "A Witchy Woman Called My Name" by Merina Canyon. The straight narrator watches her lesbian friend become intrigued by a new woman in town. There's naked dancing in the
