3 Lesbian Action Books Recommended by Brooklyn

February 23, 2018

3 Lesbian Action Books Recommended by Brooklyn Recommends

The Lesbian Review Podcast

Sheena is joined by Brooklyn to talk about some of her favourite action novels. She has come up with three books that she is sure will give any action lovers a thrill.

Brooklyn’s Top 3 Action Books

1 Keepers Of The Cave by Gerri Hill

Category Starter Action/Starter Lesbian

Publisher Bella Books

Synopsis

While the investigations go on in Dallas and Baton Rouge after the disappearance of a senator’s daughter, FBI agents CJ Johnston and Paige Riley are assigned to the sleepy backwoods of East Texas for a dead-end assignment to infiltrate an all-girls school. 

Random disappearances dating back fifty years and more raise red flags that point to the tiny, isolated community of Hoganville. But CJ and Paige fear there will be little distraction from the memories of the one-night stand they shared six months ago. 

Nevertheless, they integrate themselves into the lives of the teachers and staff, but soon the odd behavior of the townspeople has them convinced something sinister lurks there. Something, perhaps, that even the residents of Hoganville don’t know about.

Six-time Goldie winner Gerri Hill delivers thrills and passion in the chilling Keepers of the Cave.

2 Five Moons Rising by Lise MacTague

Category Romantic Action

Publisher Bella Books

Synopsis

Unknown to regular citizens, nightmarish creatures lurk in the dark underbelly of human civilization. The presence of these supranormals (“supras”)—werewolves, vampires, demons—is a closely guarded government secret, as is the existence of a cadre of specially engineered Hunters charged with exterminating them. 

Code-named Malice, Hunter Mary Alice Nolan was genetically modified and rigorously trained to use her great strength, heightened senses, and killer instincts to track and eliminate supras who prey on the innocent. A loner by choice, her only real link to the human world is her close connection to her mother and sister—until the unthinkable happens… 

Ruri Samson has been a werewolf for more than a century and is comfortably situated as the Beta of her peaceful pack. Until she is betrayed by the woman she loves and an evil outsider massacres her Alpha and his most loyal followers. Barely escaping with her life, Ruri is forced to tread the perilous path of a lone wolf while vowing vengeance against the usurper and his minions. 

Although these two powerful women should rightfully despise each other, fate will soon compel them to join forces on a dangerous quest to avenge their loved ones—and will ignite a forbidden passion that neither of them ever imagined.

3 The Magistrate by Keira Michelle Telford

Category Advanced Action

Publisher Venatic Press

Synopsis

THE PRISONWORLD TRILOGY -- VOLUME ONE

Poverty is rife in twenty-fourth century London, England. Crime rates are at an all-time high, and living conditions for many are bleak. Capital punishment and public hangings have been reinstated, and Magistrates, in their new role, are tasked with patrolling the streets to enforce arrest warrants and 'terminate' any civilians who attempt to evade justice -- which isn't always a noble pursuit.

The laws are strict, illiberal, and unsympathetic. If you can't afford to feed and clothe yourself, you'll be sent to the workhouse. If you fall behind on your rent, you'll be sent to debtors' prison. If you're gay, you'll be hanged.

For Carmen Wild, the latter becomes a potentially deadly problem when the discovery of a murdered prostitute brings her back into the life of her first love -- the Madam of an East End cathouse -- and the illicit passions between them are swiftly reignited.

 

*************************************

The Magistrate is set against the backdrop of dystopian, neo-Victorian London, and features a romantic lesbian relationship at its core.

***Contains graphic & explicit language, including some M/F sexual violence***

Other Books Mentioned In This Podcast

 

Weeping Walls by Gerri Hill

Publisher Bella Books

Synopsis

An abandoned old house in a small town northeast of Houston is the site of a second murder, eerily similar to a supposed cold case of fourteen years earlier. FBI Agents CJ Johnston and Paige Riley are dispatched to find the link between the two homicides. 

The team, including Ice and Billy, find the case to be anything but cold. For CJ and Paige, juggling the investigation while trying to keep their love affair a secret proves to be as hard as uncovering long-buried clues.

Eight-time Goldie winner Gerri Hill delivers thrills and passion in the chilling sequel to Keepers of the Cave.

Devils Rock by Gerri Hill

Publisher Bella Books

Narrator Abby Craden

Synopsis

Two women vow to bring a killer to justice. Deputy Andrea Sullivan had hoped to leave the horrors of Los Angeles behind her, but the serial murders of college students in peaceful, picturesque Sedona are her nightmare case to solve. The complexities stretch local resources to the limit, and the FBI joins the case with Agent Cameron Ross in the lead.

The crime scenes are covered with the trademark signs of the fiendish Patrick Doe, whose handiwork has been investigated by Dallas detective Tori Hunter and others. But where Hunter failed Cameron intends to win. She will break the case, find justice and go home. No distractions. Unfortunately, Deputy Sullivan is very distracting. And Patrick Doe has other plans.

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear a reading from Edge Of Glory by Rachel Spangler 

Synopsis 

Corey LaCroix only wanted to snowboard, but Olympic medals and world championships only carry you so far when your knees ache and you're suddenly an underdog for the first time in her career. Elise Brandeis doesn't need a training partner, especially an unorthodox has-been snowboarder with an attitude. But Elise has already lost a full season to injury, and she's struggling to make the Olympic ski team. Can teaming up with Corey give her the edge she needs to go for gold, or will the snowboarder's infuriatingly cocky smile and rock hard abs prove a distraction she simply can't afford? 

Both champions brace themselves for the run of a lifetime. Putting their broken bodies on the line, they fight the competition, the clock, and the frozen terrain for one more chance at glory. But this time, as they ride the razor's edge between victory and defeat, the stakes are steeper than any mountain they will ever face when legacies and hearts collide. 

Rachel Spangler is the Golden Crown Literary Society and Rainbow Award-winning author of ten lesbian romance novels and novellas. She lives with her wife and son in Western New York.

Come To Me by Chris Paynter narrated by Ann Etter 

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear a reading from Come To Me by Chris Paynter 

 

Synopsis 

Author Angie Cantinnini's agent convinces her she must use a pseudonym if she hopes to land a contract with a mainstream publishing company-especially since the protagonist of Angie's novels is a hard-boiled male detective. 

Neither Angie nor her agent anticipates the raging success of the series of books or the mountain of wealth that accompanies each new release. As a best-selling author, Angie should be delighted with her Bohemian life in Key West, but happiness is elusive because it's her alter-ego, Zach England, who's receiving the accolades, while Angie is relegated to anonymity. 

Meryl McClain, the recently hired book review editor at the prestigious New York Banner, wants to make a strong first impression with her readers, so she picks Zach England's latest novel for her debut review. She offers a scathing critique, unaware the real author behind the pseudonym is her long lost true love, Angie. Heartrending choices separated the lovers eleven years earlier. 

Seeing Meryl's review overwhelms Angie with feelings she thought she'd laid to rest years ago. This stroke of Fate beckons them to reunite, but Angie's secret identity and Meryl's struggle with a childhood trauma conspire to keep them apart. 

Torn from a shared moment in their past, the words Come Back to Me have haunted the two women for more than a decade. Is it too late for Angie and Meryl to choose love again?

Beneath the Surface by Rebecca Langham 

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini-podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet.  

In this episode, we hear a reading from Beneath the Surface by Rebecca Langham (The Outside Project book 1) 

Synopsis 

The Outsiders were embraced by humanity in the early days, but it wasn’t long before the differences between the aliens and humans started to make people nervous. Very nervous. Housing the celestial refugees in remote colonies where they could live peacefully was the most humane solution. At least, that's the story everyone's been told. 

As the daughter of a prominent politician, Lydia Barrett has lived most of her life in the public eye. So, when teaching a job in an Outsider colony becomes available, she jumps at the chance at some privacy, even if it means living underground for three months and teaching the children of aliens. 

The corporate-managed facility is not what Lydia expected, the government’s promises of safety and autonomy are a far cry from the reality. As she grows closer to the Outsiders it becomes increasingly difficult to ignore the injustices they face.  Nor can she deny the intense connection that develops between herself and the enigmatic Alessia.  Falling for an interned alien is complicated enough, but Lydia’s father is connected to a government plot that would see Outsiders manipulated to advance the human race — no matter the cost. 

Lydia and Alessia must find a way to free the Outsiders, but is it possible to do so without starting a violent rebellion that would ultimately doom the future of Alessia's people?
