Romance novels are about love


Romance novels are about love… with a capital L.  They’re about finding that elusive special someone who gets your quirks and insecurities, and accepts you as you are. Throw in a fabulous storyline with plenty of chemistry and you’ve got a winning combination any enthusiastic reader will happily devour.  However, it isn’t only the message of love that moves me in romance books.  It’s the message of hope. This is particularly true in the MM genre. [Read more…]

What are reviewers saying about it?

This story is non-stop in its intensity… the literary equivalent of mainlining adrenaline. Loved every moment of it.” – Prism Book Alliance

Shire has surprise mastered and we definitely reaped the benefits of that throughout this serial.” – 3 Chicks After Dark

“It’s the writing that sets this apart. Shire is a story builder. He shovels around intrigue, layers on some gritty dilemmas, and places each brick so solidly that you don’t even see where you’ve taken your misstep. Be wary of that whiplash effect, because there is going to be more than one incident of, “I didn’t see that coming!”  – Attention is Arbitrary

What’s it about?

The Love of Wicked Men is an erotic journey into the underbelly of the legal profession, the corporate culture of profit-at-any-cost, and the secret world of industrial espionage.

Sid Rivers and Jack Brown are two sides of the same coin. One is a lawyer with his own firm and dreams of money and power; the other is a criminal with a lengthy record and a quest for vengeance. When they meet, sparks fly. But was their meeting an accident? Or was it planned by the billionaires who want to control their destiny?


The Readers’ choice is….

Last month, I asked readers to choose which of my current WIPs they’d like to see first. As you can see from the results below, it was pretty close. The Suggestion of Sex inched out Afflicted III by just one vote. A Song for Katherine and It’s Only Love were left in the dust. Manuel’s Diary and Living Queer with Mom were an even tie.

I’m already about 10k into Suggestion and have my cover artist working overtime to find just the right design. At this moment, I’m thinking this will end up being a series of three books, but that could change as the writing progresses. I’ll be sure to keep you updated.

The Suggestion of Sex

Status: Am Writing
Genre: Gay Romance, Erotic, BDSM

Keylan Milles is just about to turn eighteen. His father is a tech tycoon, but he’s about to lose everything and doesn’t know how to tell his son. Damon Creed, a billionaire, offers to bail Mr. Milles out, but has one condition – the virginity of his son on the day he turns 18.

Don’t forget!

Season One of The Love of Wicked Men hits stores on June 12th.

Erotic Shorts from Brandon Shire

I’ve started a new series of erotic short stories. I’ve had several readers ask if I had something a little more on the carnal side of things.

Let me reiterate. These are not romance stories. They’re short, lust-filled narratives of gay intimacy and hard man-sex. Find the others here.

gay romanceBlurb:

Troy Bronson, a twenty-two-year-old whose football career vanished after a knee injury, is in dire straits. Desperate for money, he stops by a gay for pay studio thinking he can score some quick cash. He chooses a hot twink for his first appearance, but there’s a burly stagehand in the studio when he arrives and he just can’t pull his eyes away.

Book Blurb:

Andy isn’t planning on a relationship getting in the way of his career. He needs to prove himself invaluable to his boss, Gordy. Things get messed up the minute Gordy introduces him to his son, Cody, who will be working under Andy for the summer.

At first glance, Andy knows the guy is trouble. Cody is a lethal combination of a pretty face and a very rugged physique. Cody makes him achingly hot, which confuses and angers him. He likes rough-looking men, not pretty boys, even if this particular pretty face comes with a brutally sculpted body. Not only that, the dude is his boss’s son!

Cody also feels the same burning desire. It flusters him, as he’s determined to remain in the closet. Cody knows full well being gay won’t be accepted by his family. Besides, Andy is rude and short-tempered from the start. Who needs someone like that in their life?

Regardless, the heat between the two men refuses to die own. It’s going to be a long, hot summer.

A summer neither man will soon forget.

Again, Wicked Heat  is FREE  On for three days starting today, May 29 through Sunday, May 31, with another book following for .99 each week for 5 weeks.
