Pride 2023 - Books and Authors Day 19 - Bethesda Barracudas

Hello and welcome to Day 19 of 30 Days of Pride - Books and Authors! 

For Pride Month 2023, I’m sharing some of the fabulous books and authors I’ve discovered featuring LGBTQ or LGBTQ-friendly characters or written by LGBTQ or LGBTQ-friendly authors. 

There just aren't enough hockey romances in the world. It's true. I can't get enough. Ryan Taylor and Joshua Harwood are another husband-writing pair that write fantastic romance novels. They're not overly angsty and are high on heat. But they also have plenty of steam. And on top of that, some great hockey sequences. 

No, really, I want hockey, so yes. I'm going to comment on that. :-) 

They have a 4-book series with the Bethesda Barracudas that includes a fun novella in between Books 1-2 as well as two additional books from Mohegan U with related characters from the same world. 

I listened to all of these books (plus the novella), which were narrated by a local-to-me narrator, Nick J Russo. He does such an amazing job of bringing these characters to life. I think I discovered him with these books because I was excited that he pronounced Scioto River correctly. 

It's the little things in life. 

The stories are excellent to listen to or read, especially for those of us who are addicted to hockey on the page. And hockey books are more economical than hockey tickets though I do hope to make it to more than two Columbus Blue Jackets next season. (And since these books are created in a fictional world, you'll have to read them to discover what they named the Columbus professional hockey team. Sigh.)

Click on the covers below to be whooshed to their Goodreads pages with more details. 





I love this series and want to listen to them all again. Trust me, they're worth it.

Take care and happy reading!
