I have The Way Forward Is With a Broken Heart, by Alice Walker.  It covers the spectrum of passion, healing, love, and reconciliation. 

TAKEN!

The only one I have to put on a list is Gold Fever bu Lyn Denison. I won't post it here.

Back cover: Having rebuilt her life after a devasting detrayal,Kate has finally returned to her home town. Leading a quie,solitary life as the city librarian,she is busly preparing for a special appearance by a mysterious new author whose first novel,Godl fever has become an instant best seller. But the news that Ashley is also coming to town quickly turns Kate's careful controlled world upside down.

Anyone interested Pm me. Many Thanks

I have Hornito: My Lie Life by Mike Albo on my shelf right now. I'm still sorting through my other glbt books to decide what to post. If anyone is interested, I could probably be persuaded to part with the Lauren Laurano series by Sandra Scopettone.
