Erotic explorations of sex and power in the workplace.
Author: P.L. Ripley
Editors: Lon Sarver and James L. Wolf
P.L. Ripley wrote about gay men in trouble, and how they changed their trouble for something a bit more to their liking. These aren’t tales where love heals all, but you can be certain that sex changes things.
In Breaking and Entering, ForbiddenFiction.com presents all the stories P.L. Ripley published with us, collected in one volume as a testament to his life and work. Here you will find tales of thieves who found an unusual—and erotic—way to escape the law, of how one man gave his life for love, of how another learned to let loose and live, and even one story where pursuit of the man of his dreams leads out of fear and into love.
Rest well, P.L. Ripley. You will be missed.

Only having grown up in the Scottish Highlands, Ross’s methods are a little… dangerous, his methods a little… dark. Love is about to get very, very tough.

Things hit Tucker’s limit when one of Tucker’s bandmates, Jess Grayville, begins to suspect what’s going on, and puts himself in danger to protect Tucker.
