I’m Tara Lain and I write The Beautiful Boys of Romance. I love all my characters, but especially my unique heroes. I write mostly MM romance with some MMF as well. I love the intensity, passion, lack of gender roles, diversity, and innate drama that accompany two men in love. Giving my guys their happy ever after is my favorite thing. I write serious themes with a light touch and readers often call my books “sweet” despite all the hot sex! I believe in love and enjoy giving more of it to the world! Please say hi, ask questions, and make yourself at home! : )

Tara Lain is widely known for her popular books set in the California beach town, Laguna Beach. The first book in her new series, Knight of Ocean Avenu, tells the story of Billy Ballew, a 25 year old construction worker, who has never admitted or even realized he’s gay — until he comes face-to-face with Shaz, a flamboyant stylist who challenges all Billy’s long-held beliefs. Tara says of this book, “It’s one of my all time favorites and the longest novel i’ve written to date.” More details on the series in the Press Room
