mystery fantasy science fiction gay romance book recommendations from march 2023

As I start to share all these science fiction, fantasy, mystery and romance book recommendations in blog post form, I have to admit it’s great to revisit some old book recommendations about some of my favourite books. These book recommendations are important to read because before writers become writers, they are readers. Therefore, please enjoy these fantasy and science fiction book recommendations from March 2023.


The Rivals Of Casper Road by Roan Parrish

With one of my 2023 reading aims being to read more romance, I recently got Scribd to read this week's book recommendation of "The Rivals Of Casper Road by Roan Parrish and Mills & Boon. This is a brilliant book that I flat out loved. So there are definitely too many things I love about this book to say everything in this recommendation, but here are a few reasons why you need to buy and read it. The two main characters of Bram and Zachary. They are perfect characters with flaws, problems and their journey throughout the book definitely helps it as the perfect romance. It's wonderful, sweet and moving. Also, the setting is great. I have never liked small town stuff but this book has converted me. It's sweet, small and the community feeling really helps the book and makes the characters even better. Finally, this book is very unputdownable from the romance main plotline to all the tiny secondary plots that make you realise just how good, rounded and reap this book feels. And that's why this is such a great romance because it has that real feeling that so many other books sadly miss. So definitely check out this brilliant book


Pulphouse Fiction Magazine Edited By Dean Wesley Smith

This week I've been chipping away at a great fiction magazine that I'm surprised that I haven't officially recommended until now. So this week I can't recommend Pulphouse Fiction Magazine by Dean Wesley Smith and WMG Publishing, Inc. enough. Now I love this magazine, not only because I sold my first short story to it in September 2021 but also because it has some of the best stories you'll ever find but so many great professional authors. All Pulphouse stories are twisted, strange and you wouldn't find them in any normal magazine that's for should. I've read great stories about living underwear, zombie detectives, ghosts confined to a graveyard solving crimes and so many more wonderful stories you'll be a fan for life. And Pulphouse is brilliant for finding new authors to fall in love with. Like without Pulphouse I never would have found sensational authors like David Hendrickson, R.W. Wallace and more So if you're looking for strange fiction to enjoy this week, definitely check out Pulphouse Fiction Magazine.


Not Until Noah By Lisa Henry

As I continue to explore the romance genre this month, I read a brilliant book that I just had to recommend to you all this week and that is " Not Until Noah" by Lisa Henry. This is a sensational romance that I absolutely enjoyed because it focuses on able nanny employing to after a great kid of a closeted bisexual movie star and it explores the relationship between them. It's very sweet, emotional and steamy at parts. The relationship feels real full of love, passion and real chemistry between the characters and it's great that the writer managed to capture that passion so brilliantly. And it was so, so nice to have a story not set in the USA. Now I love Americans and flat out love my American readers but it is so nice to read about a different country, so that setting alone made it extra nice. So if you want an emotional, perfect, sensational romance this week then definitely check out "Not Until Noah" by Lisa Henry. You won't regret it.


Better Laid By Roan Parrish

Whilst for the most part the busyness of life from university deadlines, lectures and my own writing fought to stop me from giving you a book recommendation today, I listened to a great audiobook last week that I really do want to recommend. So last week I returned to a favourite fictional town of mine by the name of Garrett Run in the wonderful romance "Better Laid Plans" by Roan Parrish published by HarperCollins. I really wanted to recommend this great read because in this book we follow the journey of a young gay homeless man who inherited a house that seriously needs some work and his relationship with the very good natured, if not obsessed with helping people, hardware shop owner. I have to admit that their journey is very sweet, emotional and great with a lot of ups and a few downs. Both of them help improve each other and make the other realise what they were missing in their lives. Of course like all romance, readers of the genre (like myself) we don't read to find out the ending, because real romances only have one ending. A Happily Ever After, so we read for the journey and I personally read for the massive fu*k up that threatens to destroy the romance forever. This great romance like all of Roan's books certainly delivers on this journey and it's really sweet to see how Rye overcomes his struggles and issues from the past as does Charlie. And finally, something I love about this series is that there are a lot of characters that pop up in one romance and then get their own romance in another book. It's great and it certainly makes reading the series out of order interesting. I could recommend reading all these romances in order but they're all good and standalone in whatever order you choose. So if you want a great, heart-warming romance to enjoy this week. Definitely check out "Better Laid Plans".

I hope you enjoyed these book recommendations and if you want to see some of my own fantasy, science fiction, mystery and romance books. Then please click the hyperlink on the genre you want to explore. You won’t regret exploring these great books.
