This is a collection where trans lovers can feel intimately and comfortably at home amidst stories of being treasured, loved, desired, and adored.
Considering the wide variety of authors, genders, and subjects explored, I'm pleased to say there's not a single story here that didn't, on some level, resonate with me. Indeed, they are all wonderful, but there were certainly some stand-outs...
