Celebrating Carolina Valdez' New Print Collection

The heat of desire doesn't always run a straight course to permanent love in this paperback collection of two sizzling stories involving a television star named “TV's Sexiest Man" and a helicopter logger who doubles as a firefighter, and a physician who falls for the undercover police detective he treats.

Previously available only in electronic format, these Amber Allure Top Ten Best-Sellers of gay erotic romance by Carolina Valdez have now been combined for a paperback edition! Included are the tales...

Kevin Connolly, star of The Detective and selected as TV’s “Sexiest Man of the Year,” works in Hollywood with frequent filming trips to various locations. Nate Marquette, Kevin’s new love, works part of the year as a fireman in a mountain range not far from Los Angeles, but most of the year he operates his business as a helicopter logger in the Pacific Northwest and Canada. Complicating the logistics of getting together when they’re miles apart is the fact that it’s vital they keep their sexual preferences secret. Exposure as a gay man might ruin Kevin’s career, but it could mean death for Nate.

Yet in the end, it’s not these challenges that threaten to tear them apart, but deeper issues of trust and betrayal...

Stan Gordon, M.D., is well aware of the unwritten code forbidding sexual liaisons between a physician and those in his charge, but when he provides intimate care for Brian Storm, a seriously injured police detective, he comes dangerously close to crossing the line. When he does, he’s shocked to find desire is forbidden, not by the code but by the emotional demons with which Brian wrestles.

Tortured while working undercover before they met, Brian knows police policy prevents him from sharing the full story with Stan, yet not revealing the trauma in order to heal his emotional scars threatens to destroy their new and deepening love. If Brian can’t overcome what’s been done to him, will Stan leave him to look for a more responsive man? And will Brian be able to resolve his secret fears that he’ll be unable to function as a cop again?

  1. Congrats on the new print release Carolina!!! I know both these stories were best sellers for you and it's great that Amber Allure is finally offering them for print readers.

    Tell us what you're working on now and what's up next.

    Best of luck with the new release and enjoy your special day!

  2. Hi Carolina,
    I look forward to reading about these two couples and how, if they solve their problems. You're a new to me Author and I'm glad I found you here.

  3. These stories sound great and it's wonderful that they're being offered in paperback. I love seeing more books from the m/m genre coming out in paperback so they become more visible to a wider audience. Carolina, why do you think there still aren't a lot of m/m books coming out in paperback even though there's a plethora in ebook format?

  5. Hi, Carolina! I am actually baking my "famous" Chocolate Chip/Walnut Banana Bread as I am typing, so I thought maybe it was good "mojo" for all if I left a comment : ) That banana bread sure smells good!

    Congratulations on your two stories being issued in print format! I know that allows people without e-readers or PCs to access your work. I read the excerpts for each of the stories, and they both sound terrific!
