Ike Rose writes historic erotic romance fiction, usually taking place during the decades before and after the Stonewall Riots, which he thinks were the Golden Days of Gay Liberation. It is the period when he himself came out. He lives with his lover of over thirty years in Brooklyn, NY. Ike insists that his successful long-term relationship is his main inspiration in writing romance fiction. Like most of his characters, Ike and his partner both grew up in
Brooklyn working-class homes.They both serve Milo, the Rottweiler dominetrix.
Ike’s writing often focuses on the unique struggles blue-collar gay men had coming out during his favorite time period. He includes details of his life as a single gay man hunting for love and companionship back in those days to
create a realistic atmosphere and romance.
With degrees in communications and social work, Ike has had professional and self-help articles published under another name, as well as some poetry. Ike has published several books with Smashwords, and stories in a number of anthologies.
Ike's sizable body of gay erotica can be found on the NIFTY website (http://www.nifty.org/nifty/frauthors.html) Under "Authors"/ "Prolific Authors" /Ike Rose . Ike publishes stories on Smashwords.

I felt so much about this story because it took me back to my days in the 1970's in San Francisco. I loved this story for the non-repetitive detail and descriptions about gay erotica. The dialogue greatly enhanced the characters actions and kept me reading to find out what would happen next. The story is very hot; got me excited although I'm not into the leather scene.

One of the things I liked about this short ebook is the very thoughtful introduction by the author. It's worth reading for that alone. I also enjoyed the story itself. Written from a first person perspective it offers an intelligent, honest and interesting insight into a leather lifestyle and what makes one man tick in a sexual sense. The author has a friendly and easy style of writing, with some nice touches of humour, which lends itself well to a first person narrative. In some respects I did feel the story was a bit rushed in places, but otherwise it's a sexy little read.
