Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Mary, Queen of Scotch by Rob Rosen

Mary, Queen of Scotch

"This was a campy, sexy romp, filled with twists and turns. Mr. Rosen's characters were as outlandish as they were believable (I do think he knows all the drag queens I know), and the mystery to be solved by Barry, the 5-star Yelp reviewed Private Investigator, was quite clever. I laughed continuously and was even a little 'hot under the collar' from reading the steamy scenes with Barry and his various lovers. Well done! Would recommend this book to anyone."

Four five-star Yelp reviews do you little good when you’re nailed inside a giant barrel of whiskey, which is where our intrepid private detective Barry finds himself while on the case to help his campy drag friends, all of whom have numerous secrets to hide.

If he can decide between the man he once loved and the bartender he’s falling for, successfully stay undercover as his alter-ego, Mary, Queen of Scotch, and keep one step ahead of the bad guys, plus a raucously funny meddling mom, he just might live to see that much-desired fifth review.

Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Beryll and Osiris Brackhaus - Orc Haven

Orc Haven

"This story was a joy to read, from beginning to end."

The great war is over. The Dark Queen has fallen, slain by a dwarven champion as the prophecies foretold.

Still struggling with her transition from farmer's daughter to Hero of the Free Races, Irma barters her newfound fame for the power to change things for the betterment of all - including her former enemies.

With the Dark Queen's death, her subjugated orcs either succumbed to madness or were slain in battle. Only few orcs remain, and Irma has sworn to protect them, to help them find their place among the Free Races. One of them is Vash, a breeding mother from the pits, searching for a new home among the ruins of her old world with a tiny horde of orc children in tow.

When they meet, they discover that despite their differences in size, upbringing and race, they share the same hopes for the future. And while the odds they face seem overwhelming, the feelings growing between them may be strong enough to overcome them all.

From Rainbow-Award-winning authors Beryll and Osiris Brackhaus comes a sweet, happy f/f romantasy that begins where other epic fantasy novels end, a stand-alone novel about courage, hope, and the importance of family.
