Jay Northcote – author of LGBTQ romance

men in love

I f you like thoughtfully-written queer romance with hotness, humour, and a dash of angst to balance the sweetness then my books are for you. I write mainly contemporary male/male romance set in the UK, which often focuses on themes of self-discovery and exploration.

“I look forward to each of Jay Northcote’s books because I know what to expect: a sexy, romantic, lighthearted read with pitch-perfect prose and a happy-ever-after.”

A first kiss from a younger man leads to a sexual awakening…

George’s strict upbringing has left him ashamed of his sexuality. In his forties now, he’s yet to come out or even kiss a man—until he meets Quentin.

Quentin has had enough of bad relationships with men who won’t commit. Still raw from the last one, he’s not ready to try again. But George is sweet, and helping the older man get some experience might be a fun diversion.

Swept rapidly into a deeper connection than they bargained for, they face a dilemma. George isn’t ready to come out, and Quentin wants a boyfriend who isn’t afraid to be seen with him in public. Can they find a way to navigate the unpredictable waters of their new relationship and find happiness together?

Contains: Age gap, gay first times, sexual exploration, out for you.


It is impossible to read Jay’s books and not get caught up in his characters’ lives
