Praise For Love Burns Bright: A Lifetime of Lesbian Romance…
"Love Burns Bright brings together erotic stories of lovers who have managed to keep the sexual pulse in their long-term lesbian relationships. Part erotica, part love story, the nineteen stories range in age, ethnicity, and style, but return to the oft-challenged notion that sexual thrall can live well into the latter years of a relationship." --ForeWord Reviews
"In these well-written stories, readers are treated to mature couples who have made their unions work. As more and more states recognize gay marriages, books that support and celebrate successful relationships are important to couples who are together for the long haul." --Lambda Literary
"Well-written, diverse, romantic and sexy, Love Burns Bright will heat up your winter." --She Magazine
