Longing, Lust, and Love

2007   |   Editor Shonia Brown

You've heard about it, read about it, and most of us have been through it the various stages of lesbian love. It starts with lingering looks across the room at an interesting stranger, romantic e-mails, flowers, and wearing leather on your first date. Then once you have her, stage two kicks off with all-night sex sessions that leave you sore but still wanting more. Then, if you're lucky (and not on the second date, mind you), the third stage comes around, and you've settled into the comfy couch of your relationship. Soon, you don't even want to leave the house for months, and some of your friends even forget your name. 


Come join Nghosi Books down memory lane or take this journey for the first time as we introduce you to ultimate pleasure in our New Voices Series of longing, lust, and love!

“Sexual relations are more than penis-vagina intercourse. One could say that you have already been having sex with her by “making out!” You may also find pointers in Longing, Lust, and Love: Black Lesbian Stories by Shonia Brown."

"Longing, Lust, and Love takes women there and still keeps a realistic tone with every word. Brown has chosen a well-rounded concoction sure to have you melting, laughing and yearning for love, lust and longing -- everything a woman wants."

“I think this book was a great introduction to up and coming writers. I really appreciate this book done by a small press and addressing a group under served in literature."
