- The Night Rules by Gabriel Barone
Giles and Aidan are childhood friends who grew up together but went separate ways. Aidan is a successful, nominally straight, businessman; Giles is a sex worker, risking himself with unpleasant and sometimes unstable clients to pay his rent. A lifelong bond holds them together, restricted to an occasional night's passion by strict rules Aiden requires to protect his public image. One night though, as Aiden sleeps off the evening's sexual adventures, Giles makes a decision that changes everything for the two of them.
- Breaking and Entering
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.

As tensions mount, Kamal puts the pieces together, and doesn't like what he finds. (M/M)
