RICHMOND, VA (PRWEB) April 7, 2006 — Palari Books announces its latest book in a line of quality gay fiction titles. Renowned author Dave Benbowâ€™s newest beach read, SUMMER CRUISING, will be published in June 2006.
SUMMER CRUISING is a novel where romantic days spent touring and tanning end up as exotic nights devoted to dining, dancing and passionate sex. These are the daily activities for the hunky passengers of the RMS Princess Diana, as they set sail on a rollicking all-gay cruise through the sun-drenched Mediterranean and its stunning ports of call. But this idyllic holiday abruptly ends when a calculating psychopath sets in motion a dastardly plan to send the luxurious liner to the bottom of the sea. Soon daring escapes, personal sacrifices, and heart-pounding rescues replace romance as the men of the Diana struggle to survive the sinking ship and each other.
According to the author Dave Benbow, â€œGay cruises are becoming more and more popular and extravagant, so it makes the perfect setting for a great summer book full of romance, mystery, and of course, plenty of hot sex as well.â€ Benbow notes that with the current highly publicized cases of passengers mysteriously missing from mainstream cruises splashed all over the media, and the theatrical remake of “The Poseidon Adventure,” scheduled for release in early summer, interest in cruising continues to grow. “I wanted to mix that sort of mystery up with the excitement and danger of a disaster at sea,” he says. “It’s just such a fun read.”
Well-known writer and performer Bruce Vilanch agrees, â€œDave Benbowâ€™s SUMMER CRUISING is ready to fire across your bow. Itâ€™s the gay Poseidon and Titanic, and it stays afloat way longer than either of those girls.â€
In the book, Benbow continues the story lines of several characters from his successful previous novels published by Kensington, MALE MODEL and DAYTIME DRAMA
