About BrandilynRC

Brandilyn is a middle-aged (When the hell did that happen?) stay-at-home mom to 3 beautiful children (of course she is biased). She started reading M/M Romance and Gay fiction in early 2012 and was quickly hooked. In her first 18 months as a M/M Romance fan, she read over 900 titles in the genre (not counting re-reads), ranging from shorts to epic novels. She reads across all tropes within the Gay Fiction genre…. except Regency, she has never found a love for Regency. A native Texan she finds Texas to the be almost perfect… except for one thing, their treatment of the GLBTQ community. This blog is her brain child and she is happy to welcome some fellow GLBTQ supporters to review here and help promote equality (oh and of course fangirl/fanboy over their favorite authors and works).

  1. If I had to name a favorite secondary character in any of my own books, it would be Bret in Catriona’s Curse. One reader said ‘he’s the type of guy who needs to be driven down a dirt road and left’. He was gone by the second day of the book, but he was so much fun to write.

  2. There’s only three here because I could keep going and some of my favorites were already mentioned.

    Ricky – Transgression by Theo Fenraven
    Fran/Roger/Abe/Lisa – Tigerland series by Sean Kennedy
    Myah – Power Exchange series by AJ Rose

  3. One that comes to mind is Louisa, from Heidi Cullinan’s Dirty Laundry, a transgender character who supports and protects one of the lead characters Adam from terrible panic attacks and the spiteful antics of his ex.
