A landmark in LGBT fiction, this captivating story of two teenage girls who fall in love is a “classic of the genre” (Publishers Weekly). When Liza Winthrop first lays eyes on Annie Kenyon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she knows there’s something special between them. Soon, their close friendship develops into a deep and intimate romance. Neither imagined that falling in love could be so wonderful, but as Liza and Annie’s newfound sexuality sparks conflict in both their families and at their schools, they discover it will take more than love for their relationship to succeed. One of the first books to positively portray a lesbian relationship, Annie on My Mind is a groundbreaking classic of the genre. The subject of a First Amendment lawsuit over banned books and one of School Library Journal’s “One Hundred Books that Shaped the Century,” Nancy Garden’s iconic novel is an important story for anyone discovering who they’re meant to be.
A collection of five erotic short stories with mixed lesbian themes including corporal punishment, crime, and revenge. strong>Woman Friendly by Olivia London Jill and Rona have been neighbours for two years. They have a lot in common and could be destined for true love. If only they could look for love closer to home instead of all the loud places ... Dirty Girl by Lynn Lake Kaylee‘s a dirty girl. She lezes out every chance she gets; if it‘s got boobs and quim, she wants some. And in one super-satisfying fortnight she managed to get down and dirty, and off, with her next-door neighbour, a co-worker, and even her dental hygienist; one after another after another. A dirty girl never comes clean. Patching Things Up by Jordan Alleyo When your new lover has scars you can’t help but wonder. When your past means you recognise them as healed cigarette burns, there’s a great desire to know more. How did she get mixed up with someone like that? Who was it? Why had they done that? Why had she let them? I stopped abruptly at this last point and chastised myself for assuming everyone is as capable of defending themselves as I am. The fact I can disable a person of any size with a few well-placed jabs of a finger or thumb makes me the exception, not the rule. The Flat Landscape by Johnson Green Janet has reached middle age. With her husband gone and her son at Uni she had reached a dead end. That world changes forever when she employs Agnes. This young Polish woman appears shy and secretive at first. Soon she ignites feelings that Janet both fears and cannot restrain. But it takes a battered old novel to bring them together. A Sport Without Balls by Landon Dixon Nicole signed up for the company’s women’s volleyball team for two reasons: one to ogle her team mates, and two to ogle her opponents. She takes good care of her body, and her body usually takes good care of her. But when she got sweet, shy, little Lori all alone in the steamy-hot shower room after a strenuous game, it was her acting, not her athletic abilities, she put to good, sexy, seductive use.
Best known for her Kate Delafield detective series, Katherine V. Forrest is recognized as one of the preeminent figures in lesbian popular literature. Yet her work has received little scholarly attention. This critical study explores Forrest's entire body of work, including her fiction and (perhaps more importantly) her writing about writing, popular genres and her readers. Her science fiction and romance novels are analyzed, with a focus on the reasons behind their enduring appeal. Her most famous romance, Curious Wine, originally published in 1984, remains in print--a longevity far exceeding the typical romance novel.
Jacqueline Keys was ostracized from her small hometown of Pine Springs, Texas when she was seventeen, sent away because she was gay. Her family was the largest employer in the county, owning Pine Springs Lumber, and her father was mayor of this small town. Her mother could not accept the fact that her only child was gay, could not tolerate the gossip about her family. So, with a hundred dollars in her pocket and a one-way bus ticket out of town, Jacqueline was told not to come back until she had come to her senses. And that included being prepared to marry the son of a business associate of the family. Fifteen years later—long after she'd hitch-hiked to Los Angeles, long after she'd worked nights to put herself through college, and long after she'd written her first best seller, No Place For Family—Jacqueline is persuaded to go back to the tiny town of Pine Springs after her father's death. The quick trip she'd envisioned for the funeral turns into weeks as she learns her father's business is suddenly hers to manage. And she is also again face-to-face with the woman who, as a teen, had been Jackie's first crush. She and Kay had been inseparable as kids, and later as teens. They find themselves falling back into their old habits, and Jackie is soon fighting the same feelings she'd had when she was seventeen. But living behind the pine curtain, Kay is afraid of her love for Jackie, afraid of what her family will say, afraid of how the town will react. Jackie refuses to hide, refuses to crawl back into the closet, so once again, she leaves Pine Springs...alone.

One kiss couldn't change all that—unless it's the kiss that counted.

Genre: Literary Criticism
Since the 1970s, romance novels have surpassed all other genres in terms of popularity in the United States, accounting for half of all mass market paperbacks sold and driving the digital publishing revolution. Romance Fiction and American Culture brings together scholars from the humanities, social sciences, and publishing to explore American romance fiction from the late eighteenth to the early twenty-first century. Essays on interracial, inspirational, and LGBTQ romance attend to the diversity of the genre, while new areas of inquiry are suggested in contextual and interdisciplinary examinations of romance authorship, readership, and publishing history, of pleasure and respectability in African American romance fiction, and of the dynamic tension between the genre and second wave feminism. As it situates romance fiction among other instances of American love culture, from Civil War diaries to Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks, Romance Fiction and American Culture confirms the complexity and enduring importance of this most contested of genres.
