2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Complete Horse Mistress Collection (111-05-25-2016)

1) This was such a marvelous read, distinguished by some absolutely lovely characters and a unique relationship. An utterly captivating heroic fantasy story on its own, with some real drama and tension in the plotting, populated by bisexual lovers, eunuchs, and a gender-swapped heroine. Some stories you breeze through to get to the end, and some you linger with, reluctant to say goodbye. This was definitely one of the latter.

2) This collection is fantastic. It's so detailed and three dimensional it felt like I was part of the story.

3) A four volume compilation of gender bending love and preternatural terror. Good reading.

Carivel was born female, but she has been secretly living as a boy for years in her adoptive village of Draebard. The last thing she needs is to fall for not one, but two unattainable men—a dominating warrior and a reluctant wolf-shifter with a horrific past. Now, the Alyrion Empire is poised to invade, and Carivel must choose whether to keep her secret or reveal it—not only to the men she loves, but also to the powerful female ruler whose army could help protect Draebard during the coming war.

2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: He’s Behind You by Rebecca Cohen (350-08-30-2016)

Thoroughly entertaining! Full of lively and entertaining characters I wanted to get to know better. The romance is sweet, gentle and refreshingly realistic.

He’s Behind You (Treading the Boards) by Rebecca Cohen
Gay Romantic Comedy
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press; 1 edition (December 2, 2015)
Amazon Kinlde: He’s Behind You (Treading the Boards)

A Treading the Boards Novella

It’s panto season for the Sarky Players, an amateur dramatics society based in Greenwich, South London. With the traditional Christmas play around the corner, it’s time to get ready for more larger than life performances—on and off stage.

While Craig Rosen is happy with his quiet life playing Warhammer and working in a university lab, a new colleague thinks he needs more excitement and drags Craig along to an audition for the Christmas pantomime, Aladdin.

Corporate lawyer Jason Carter accepted he’s gay a little later in life than most, but now divorced and in his late thirties, he’s ready to embrace who he really is. He can’t believe his luck when he runs into Craig at the audition and the cute younger man agrees to help him navigate his new life. There’s no doubting the attraction between Craig and Jason, but with Craig’s insecurities and Jason still finding his way, they’ll need to make sure they don’t veer off script.
