The Beginning of Knowledge: gay BDSM romance

Gay BDSM romance The Beginning of Knowledge is now available at Amazon for only 99p!

When University administrator Alan Castleton meets temporary worker and talented pianist Luke Milton, he doesn’t expect to become obsessed with the handsome young blond. But soon he is heavily involved in a passionate and angry affair, and exploring the dark shadows of his own personality in a way he’s never encountered before.

The more Alan tries to break free from his obsession, the deeper it entangles him. The dangerous split between his reason and his sexual desires threatens his peace of mind and, when the crisis point comes, he must decide once and for all the kind of life he should lead.

Reviews:

“I want more. The characterisations were terrific, the chemistry, for what it was, perfect, the sex was dark, nasty, erotic as sin … and I LOVED it. This is one of my favourite Anne Brooke reads. I loved the dark eroticism and the excellent development of the characters. In such a short word count I felt like I knew both men well.” (From a 5 star review at On Top Down Under Reviews)

“The writing here is superb. I felt as if I knew Alan intimately only a few pages into his first person narrative because for all that he’s blind to what is going on he’s starkly transparent. So I commend Anne for writing a story that is indeed knowledgeable, that is informative but at the same time seductively sexy. I think you should read this one just to see what you take from it.” (From a 4 star review at The Armchair Reader)

“A dark erotic short that isn’t my usual type of read … So I started reading this with trepidation and, much to my surprise, I loved it … This is a really well written story about discovery of oneself written in a very sexy way.” (From a 4 star review at World of Diversity Reviews)

I hope you enjoy the read.

The Dangerous Delaneys and Me: gay erotic romance

Gay BDSM romance The Dangerous Delaneys and Me is now available at Amazon for only 99p.

Art gallery worker Liam O’Connell never knew life could be quite so exciting until he met the Delaney brothers, Mark and Johnny. And he also never knew how much better it would be having two boyfriends instead of just one. The fact they’re twins is the icing on the cake, though the gangster connection might be rather trickier to handle. Will Liam rise to the challenges of criminal capers, sexy scenarios and a risky romance, and can he ever find his way to a happy ending with the deliciously dangerous duo?

I hope you enjoy the read.

All best!

The Heart’s Greater Silence: Gay Erotic Romance

Gay erotic romance The Heart’s Greater Silence is now available on Kindle for only 99p or FREE with Kindle Unlimited. Here’s the blurb:

Mark isn’t sure he believes in love, especially when he’s torn between two very different men: his reliable boyfriend, Craig, and his illicit lover and priest, Richard. Mark knows what he should do, but he can’t bring himself to give Richard up. The sex with Richard is unlike anything he’s ever known with Craig, and he hungers for it as much as – if not more than – the truer intimacy he finds in his boyfriend’s arms.

When Craig discovers his betrayal, Mark is forced to look at his life more closely, but the path to self-knowledge is never an easy one. Richard seeks the way back to God, but Mark finds no solace there. Can he ever discover the truth of his own soul, or is he too afraid of what he will – or won’t – find inside his heart?

Reviews:

“Anne Brooke has written a somber and beautiful story of a man who had everything and lost it all because he coveted two very different men. It is dark and solemn and resonates with a sense of conflict and despair that wove the ideal atmosphere. It was moving and played beautifully against the knowledge that sometimes free will and human nature simply don’t leave room for happy endings.” (The Novel Approach)

“This was an intense and moving story that caught me up from the very start … it does a wonderful job of poking at that line between love and lust as Mark gets caught up in his two different needs and sadly finds they can only be satisfied by two different people.” (Joyfully Jay Reviews)

“Anne Brooke is one of my favourites. I love the picture she always paints in her books – of a town, the people, the streets, the body language of the characters. Body language is an integral part of communication and not every writer can do this well, if at all. I like the fact that her writing is quirky, realistic and (I believe) comes from someone with keen observational skills … Short, realistic, terrific read.” (On Top Down Under Book Reviews)

Blog 81: Quirky crime and open air sex: a review extravaganza!

Much to my astonishment, I’ve had some nice reviews for a couple of books this week, which is really lovely. First off, quirky crime novel, The Gangster’s Wife, has had four 5-star reviews on Amazon US, a smattering of which I include below:

The Gangster’s Wife, by Anne Brooke, was not only an excellent read, but a bit on the realistic side as well. I found this book to be so relatable because it does happen in the real world … I loved the character developments in this story, and the character of Elise is exciting as well. I was engrossed in this one from start to finish, and would definitely recommend it.”

“The story has a unique twist as it unfolds completely through Elise’s mind, eyes and heart. Her quest to find out the truth about her husband’s secrets and missing money makes for light-hearted humor in the midst of sadness. Overall an excellent novel that keeps the reader entertained.”

“I loved this book! It was thrilling and kept me wanting to find out more along with the main character … Well written for anyone to enjoy!”

“I absolutely loved this book because it was engrossing, fast and very realistic … It is the kind of book that you can put down and think to yourself: ‘Ok, who do I know that is leading a double life?'”

If this has whetted your appetite, you can find The Gangster’s Wife at Amazon!
