Lion's Legacy by L.C. ROSEN. Tennessee finds out his boyfriend has been cheating on him at the same time his estranged father, Henry, shows up out of the blue. A famous reality show archeologist, Henry wants Tennessee to join him as he searches for the rings of the Sacred Band of Thebes, a fearsome army comprised of 150 gay couples in ancient Greece. Would Tennessee pass up the chance to show the world that not only have queer people been here forever, but that they were both respected and formidable?
Becoming a Queen by DAN CLAY. Mark has given up on love. He’s just too much for suburban Annondale — thankfully, his big brother, Eric, is always there to stop Mark from spiraling. But as things start looking up for Mark, he sees signs that his brother might have problems of his own. When the source of Mark’s strength suddenly becomes the source of his greatest pain, happiness seems impossible. Desperate for a way out, to briefly live a different life, Mark slips into a dress. Can this unexpected escape be the outlet he needs?
