Les Hommes, Vol. 2
by Christiane France
ISBN-13: 978-1-60272-860-8 (Paperback)
In Les Hommes, Vol. 2, after inheriting his uncle’s share of an antique store, Martyn is forced to work with a man he dislikes and figures the feeling is mutual; Adam and Domenic find that coming out takes considerably more than just opening the closet door; and it’s only after he meets Honey that the Marquis de Vernnay discovers what he really wants out of life.
Previously available only in electronic format, these three stories of gay erotic romance have now been combined for a paperback edition! Included are the tales...
The Gallery On Main Street
Martyn Cole doesn’t like his late uncle’s business partner, and he knows the feeling is mutual. Trouble is, he wants Simon Deschamps as badly as he suspects Simon wants him, and when the terms of his uncle’s Will force them to work together, Martyn knows he must either figure a way to redirect his emotions elsewhere, or deal with them head on. After deciding on the direct approach, Martyn calls Simon, says they need to talk, and suggests they have dinner together. The restaurant Martyn had in mind, however, is closed, so Simon takes him to a nearby gay club. Martyn isn’t sure what to expect, but just as he gives up hope of the evening developing beyond dinner and a drink, things take a definite and exciting turn as the lights dim, the music is turned up, and Simon draws Martyn into his arms and onto the dance floor...
Some Place Only We Know
Adam Carstairs and Domenic Morton are both trapped in the closet. Adam because he’s never found the courage to do more than wonder whether or not he’s gay, and Domenic because he fears being disowned by his family. The pair meet at the local hospice where Adam is a volunteer, and Domenic is visiting his older brother who has been badly injured in an auto accident. The day Domenic learns his brother is not likely to recover, he and Adam go for a walk on the Niagara Escarpment. The weather closes in, and when they’re caught in a freak snowstorm, they shelter in an abandoned cottage where they take the opportunity to explore their feelings for one another. When Adam awakens the following morning to find Domenic gone, however, and a note saying he needed to return to the hospice, Adam figures Domenic used his brother’s condition as an excuse to disappear. Adam feels used and abused and hopes never to see Domenic again. But when Domenic turns up at Adam’s bookstore and explains what happened, can the men pick up where they left off?
A Taste of Honey
Antoine Auguste, Marquis de Vernnay, is twenty-four and bored. Bored with women at the house he frequents on la rue Charles V, and bored with the elaborate rituals and devices he must use in order to achieve an orgasm. But then he meets Honey at an exclusive men’s club, and has his first sexual experience with another man. One taste of this beautiful, young creole man with the golden skin and Antoine's life is forever changed. Honey is the only person he can think about and the only person he wants. Honey, however, is a servant of the lowest class, and also the property of another man. Can Antoine discover a way he can separate the two and keep Honey all to himself?
