Roses in the Desert by Lance Kenman


Roses in the Desert by Lance Kenman

Romantic love appears to us at times and in places that we least expect. Without someone to love, our lives can seem like emotional deserts, dry and lonely, where love can sometimes appear with surprise as a precious rose. Each of the stories in this collection tells of unexpected love, sometimes unsolicited and seemingly unwanted, and others are wanted desperately, but the one searching is looking in the wrong place. This collection of eight engaging stories of gay romance contain unrestrained humor, tragedy, fulfillment, wit, heartfelt torment, and characters that will steal their way into your heart. Six of the stories are fiction and two are autobiographical. Warning: Some stories contain graphic descriptions of sex between men. This collection is intended only for the mature, adult reader.
