Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Familiar Demon by Amy Lane

Familiar Demon (Familiar Love Book 2)

"Great plot, in-depth character development, fun and fast paced story."

Familiar Love: Book Two

For over a century, Edward Youngblood has been the logical one in a family of temperamental magical beings. But reason has not made him immune to passion, and Edward’s passion for Mullins, the family’s demon instructor, has only grown.

Mullins was lured into hell through desperation—and a fatal mistake. He’s done his best to hang onto his soul in the twisted realm of the underworld, and serving the Youngblood family when summoned has been his only joy. Edward concocts a plan to spring Mullins by collecting a series of items to perform an ancient ritual—an idea that terrifies Mullins. He can’t bear the thought of losing Edward and his brothers to a dangerous quest.

But every item in their collection is an adventure in brotherhood and magic, and as Mullins watches from the sidelines, he becomes more and more hopeful that they will succeed. When the time comes for Mullins to join the mission, can he find enough faith and hope to redeem himself and allow himself happiness in the arms of a man who would literally go to hell and back—and beyond—to have Mullins by his side?

Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Drama Castle (Nicky and Noah mystery #7) by Joe Cosentino

Drama Castle: A Nicky and Noah Mystery (Nicky and Noah Mysteries Book 7)

"Wow. Is all I have to say about Drama Castle by Joe Cosentino. It's funny, enchanting, dramatic, and even suspenseful. The dialogue is quick-witted and realistic, full of humor and puns. The plot thickens when would-be actors and heirs to a real castle start dropping off like flies. The characters feel true to life, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, good and bad sides. The writing is done with humorous flare and the pace is fast, while never too rushed. I was kept guessing and hoping throughout. And the ending wrapped everything up with a nice red ribbon. Cannot recommend this higher! I'm definitely adding all the other stories in the series to my TBR list."

Theatre professor Nicky Abbondanza is directing a historical film at a castle in Scotland, co-starring his spouse, theatre professor Noah Oliver, and their son Taavi. When historical accuracy disappears along with hunky men in kilts, Nicky and Noah will once again need to use their drama skills to figure out who is pitching residents of Conall Castle off the drawbridge and into the moat, before Nicky and Noah land in the dungeon. You will be applauding and shouting Bravo for Joe Cosentino’s fast-paced, side-splittingly funny, edge-of-your-seat entertaining seventh novel in this delightful series. Take your seats. The curtain is going up on steep cliffs, ancient turrets, stormy seas, misty moors, manly men, malfunctioning kilts, and murder!
