Nicole Austin – Scandalous

{September 4, 2007}   Taboo Desires by Amanda Young

Part of the A Midsummer Night’s Steam collection

*This is a m/m story


When his girlfriend demands he settle down and start a family, Cole Winchester has some hard decisions to make. Marry his girlfriend, or finally own up to his taboo attraction to other men.

Cole Winchester feels like a rat, boxed into a corner. Faced with the prospect of being trapped in a passionless marriage, he makes the hard choice to end his relationship.

A run in with an old friend on the beach, propels Cole’s fantasies out into the open and forces him to confront his taboo desires. Before him, lies the choice of a lifetime—embrace his desire for another man and all the pitfalls that come along with it, or return to his girlfriend and live out the safe half-life he carved for himself.

Nic’s Recommendation:

This is a great short story. I was cheering for Cole when he found the courage to explore what he really wanted, and for Eric when his longtime fantasy got fulfilled. Taboo Desires is an emotional and sexy read. I would have loved for it to be longer, but I feel that way about all books I enjoy. I just don’t want to see them end.

Taboo Desires is available from Samhain Publishing.
