TLA Gaybies - Winner! From award-winning author Rob Byrnes comes a wickedly entertaining caper involving red-hot men, cold hard cash, and deliciously dirty deeds…

Two Partners In Crime

Grant and Chase are a fun-loving pair of small-time hustlers with no money, little patience, and lots of get-rich-quick schemes. If only they could pull off the perfect crime—“The Big One,” as Grant calls it—Chase could finally quit his job at the supermarket and the two could retire in style.

One Star In The Closet

Romeo Romero is the world’s hottest openly gay celebrity. He’s got the face, the abs, the fame, the fortune—and the sex video that could destroy his career. If this naughty little tape should fall into the wrong hands, Romeo’s adoring fans would be in for one big surprise: He’s straight.

No Lie

When Grant and Chase hear about the video (thanks to a notorious Hamptons’ gossip), it’s a no-brainer. All they have to do is steal the tape, blackmail the star, and collect the cash. But then, when they stupidly leave the video in a New York cab, the would-be crooks have to wheel and deal with a sleazy tabloid editor, a lesbian real estate agent, a kinky Internet stalker, and an alluring boy toy to finally get to the truth…behind not-so-straight lies.

Praise for Rob Byrnes and When The Stars Come Out…

“Clever dialogue and an astute rendering of the prices people pay to keep secrets buried add crossover appeal.” --Publishers Weekly

“Byrnes turns out another deftly written and enticingly complex gay romance.” --Booklist

About Rob Byrnes:

Rob Byrnes won a Lambda Literary Award for his novel When the Stars Come Out. He is also the author of the novels The Night We Met and Trust Fund Boys, short stories in the anthologies Strange Bedfellows and Fool for Love; and an entirely fabricated personal history based largely on your willingness to believe he is 35 years old (he’s really 36. Ish.) He lived throughout New York State for most of those 36-ish years until his recent move to West New York–which is, deceptively, in New Jersey–with his partner Brady Allen. When not writing, he cavorts with celebrities and gets into whacky capers, like that time when he, Clinton and Clooney… ah, but you already know that story.
