Fated Love by Radclyffe (Bold Strokes Books)

Radclyffe is a legend in the world of lesbian romance. Not only is she the founder of Bold Strokes Books, but she’s written a countless number of their bestsellers. Many of Radclyffe’s heroines are of the butchier persuasion, which is a breath of fresh air considering butch women aren’t often given the space and narrative that they deserve. If you are into butch/femme pairings, then these books will likely satisfy. Also, not for nothing, but Radclyffe is a hell of a writer.
