Happy Pride Month! I’m so excited to have a queer m/f erotic romance releasing this month just in time for Pride. In Bottle Rocket, a good girl kindergarten teacher reconnects with a bad boy erotic artist for a summer fling. It has second chances, opposites attract, kink lite, summer vibes, femdom scenes, sex toys galore, and all the fluffy feelings. The hero, Leo, is bisexual, and the book has a large queer cast.
To celebrate Pride and the release of Bottle Rocket, I’d love to share a list of my favorite romances with bisexual and pansexual characters!
Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole
This second chance f/f novella, and awesome addition to the Reluctant Royals series, follows Likotsi, who is the iconic assistant to Prince Thabiso in A Princess in Theory, and Fabiola, a bisexual jewelry maker, as they reconnect months after breaking up. It is a wonderful sapphic love story.
Wrong to Need You by Alisha Rai
I am an Alisha Rai fangirl, and I adore this series. This book is about Jackson, a shy, mysterious chef, and Sadia, a bi bartender/cafe owner, as they have a secret affair. Sadia’s late husband was Jackson’s brother, and the forbidden romance is very well done!
Reverb by Anna Zabo
This m/f romance between Mish, a cis pansexual rock goddess, and bodyguard David, a queer trans man, hits all my bodyguard trope buttons. After receiving threatening messages from a stalker, Mish’s band assigns David her as a bodyguard, but things get complicated when they begin to fall in love.
Neighborly by Katrina Jackson
This erotic romance follows two couples as they form a polyamorous unit. Calvin, a boxer, and Heaven, an artist, move into a new home, only for Heaven to begin fantasizing about Tasha, one of her neighbors. Tasha is in an open relationship with Stephen. Heaven and Tasha explore the chemistry and attraction between them with the support of their partners. This is a super hot polyam book that highlights many different ways to love and care for a partner.
Heated Rivalry by Rachel Reid
This m/m hockey romance follows Shane and Ilya and their secret, no-strings relationship from before they’re drafted to years into their professional hockey careers. I love the unusual structure of this book, the slow burn to feelings, the opposites attract, and the heat! Shane is gay and a bit buttoned up, and Ilya is bi and a total bad boy.
Xeni by Rebekah Weatherspoon
This is a marriage-of-convenience-for-the-inheritance romance between Xeni, who is trying to settle her aunt’s estate, and Mason, a mentee of her aunt. I really enjoyed this fresh take on this trope and the bisexual main characters were both divine!
How to Bang a Billionaire by Alexis Hall
The first book in the Arden St. Ives series follows Arden, a pansexual soon-to-graduate lit student, and Caspian, a broody billionaire as they negotiate a relationship. Arden is such a bright, fun, and interesting character. It’s a delight to be in his head and read the world through his voice.

Bottle Rocket by Erin McLellan, out now!
Freshly single Rosie Holiday is on the hunt for passion and excitement. This leads her to Leo Whittaker—a bad boy who waltzed out of town, and her life, thirteen years ago. Leo isn’t the type to stick around, but Rosie’s not going to let a no-strings opportunity pass her by.
When a business trip sends Leo back to his hometown, the last thing he expects is for his first love to hand him a list of scorching-hot escapades and a deadline. He’s happy to help Rosie discover her bossy side in the bedroom. Or in a fireworks stand. Or at a Fourth of July barbecue.
Their chemistry burns bright and fast, but what tore them apart years ago is still between them. They are polar opposites. A reserved kindergarten teacher and an irreverent artist. A nester and a wanderer. It will take a spark of imagination and a lot of love to keep their second-chance romance from flaming out.
