Beautiful Animal

Cover of the book Beautiful Animal by K. Sterling, a sex-positive LGBTQ / MM romance

What if sex wasn’t just for the healthy, the wealthy and the beautiful?

Nothing stops time like a camera. Photographer Darby Randolph has a knack for being in the right spot at the right time. He can catch a lie or a moment of truth and suspend it because he understands the secrets humans hide and how to find them with his camera.


Like the subjects of his photographs, Darby is suspended and caught in a lie when a wrong number brings an entirely different animal to his doorstep. There’s never been a man like Carys Channing and Darby jumps at an invitation to tag along and witness love and sex through the eyes of a very high-end escort.


Each client is a snapshot and glimpse into all the different ways a heart can love when we don’t lie to ourselves and each other about sex. Every photograph and every touch draws Darby closer to the truth and he becomes seduced by the elegant and enigmatic escort and his menagerie of clients.


Beautiful Animal is a sex positive, poignant MM escort romance with themes of acceptance, voyeurism, being a survivor of trauma, and redemption. It is more emotional and handles deeper themes than many of K. Sterling’s other romances.

“[Beautiful Animal] put me through the wringer, going from heartbreak to elation, opening my eyes to beauty that grows from ugliness, to strengths built on debilitating weaknesses. And I found love. Unconventional, unexpected,”
