Karen Sandler's Tankborn trilogy has just come to its conclusion. I recommend it. There's real depth, especially at the end of book three. There are two same-sex couples in the series. Until three-quarters of the way through the last book, there's not a jot, not a speck, of homophobia, not even to convey that it's wrong. If I remember correctly, the first same-sex couple shows up in book two, so that's over a book and half with same-sex love portrayed as if the notion of homophobia doesn't exist. I found this refreshing and valuable – and rare.
