Overview

Book 1 in the Afflicted Series: A Blind Gay Romance

A high-priced male escort and a blind gay man meet by chance. What ensues is a hot, steamy romance by two men looking for something more than a one night stand. But can they reach beyond their own insecurities to grasp what they really desire?

Hunter Stephens is gay, tall, dark haired and scorching hot. But he doesn't rely on the visual cues when appraising a man because he's also blind. He listens to the timbre of their voice, trembles at the touch of their skin and luxuriates in the deep richness of the aroma of man. He's hard of the hand because he's a black belt and takes no shit, but soft of the heart because he's lonely and has been for a while.

Until he meets Dillon.

Dillon Chambers is pure man candy. He's a high-priced male escort that works with an exclusive agency who handles only the wealthiest of clients. But it wasn't always like that for him. At sixteen, he was thrown out of the house for being gay and struggled to survive, turning tricks on the street and finding food and a place to sleep wherever he could. He met two people that changed his life, but he has never met anyone who could break his heart.

Until he bumped into Hunter.

Meet the Author

Great stories should not depend on gender or sexual preference of a character, but instead upon the strength of the characters and the honesty and urgency of the story.

Brandon Shire proves he understands the complexity of writing LGBT fiction from two very different viewpoints – serious and smexy. His serious fiction is written for those who enjoy a book which explores life’s darker elements in a more literary form, while the smexy fiction is for those who enjoy a graphically erotic romance.

Regardless of the differentiation above, Brandon writes for people who enjoy being challenged, and for those who strive to understand situations they don’t typically encounter. He pens raw, emotional stories about characters which readers will either love or love to hate.

Life and love are pretty damned special, but neither is always perfect. Life can be painful, and real love hard to find. Brandon’s fiction is an exploration of the (sometimes) arduous search for the happiness we all desire.

BRANDON SHIRE was chosen as a Top Read in 2011, Best in LGBTQ Fiction for 2011 & 2012, and won a Rainbow Award for Best Gay Contemporary Fiction.

writing . . .impeccable. the authors ability to craft the written word into a sensory experience is most rare. characters . . . well developed. believable. i often wonder about the the motivation in developing certain aspects of a character. i wondered why the author saw or felt or developed one the characters to be blind. i ponder the why . . .what purpose does it serve for the story? the message? i haven't finished wondering about this yet, BUT if it served no other purpose but to allow me to experience the writer's ability to craft a sensory experience, i am o.k. with that . . . the story arc . . .again, prostitute and a john story, not original. BUT his take on the age old story is fantastic! i cannot wait to see where these two are headed. THE ENDING . . . uughhh . . . cliff hanger of sorts. intentional.
