Butterfly Tattoo

Deidre Knight, Author . Samhain $16 (288p) ISBN 978-1-60504-544-3

Making a compelling case for bisexuals who recognize no gender boundaries when it comes to true love, Knight's engrossing romance includes another keen twist regarding families. Michael Warner, Hollywood electrician, “quasi-queer of the somewhat straight variety,” and his cute stepdaughter, Andrea Lauren Richardson, meet Rebecca O'Neill, a former actress turned producer, after a power outage at her office. The attraction's immediate for the adults but Rebecca's assistant, Trevor, warns Rebecca that Michael is gay. Michael's grieving the loss of his partner, Dr. Alex Richardson, who died in an accident a year earlier that left Andrea with physical and emotional scars, something Rebecca understands since she also bears scars from a brutal stalker attack. Knight handles this unusual tale with admirable delicacy and adds a twist worthy of an Emmy-winning soap opera, involving paternity and surrogacy. As Michael, Rebecca, and Andrea plant new family roots, Knight's weepy and affecting story presents bisexuality as viable a concept as homosexuality or heterosexuality. (Feb.)
