Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Pet Boutique by Suzie Carr

The Pet Boutique

"A sweet romance, delightfully told."

"Read this and you will feel good about yourself, your sexuality, your lack of conformity. This book healed me in a place I didn’t know was wounded." - Mildred

From the moment Lexie Tanner meets Taylor Henshaw in the dilapidated space that will one day become her aunt's pet boutique, she knows she's got her work cut out for her. Taylor self-identifies as a complicated woman, and there's nothing Lexie enjoys more than a good fixer upper. But Taylor's complications run deep, and way into her past. Surrounded by an eccentric and spirited group of family and friends, including a spunky and lovable dog named Cashmere, the two women navigate a series of obstacles that have them questioning their choices. As their journey unfolds, neither women is prepared for what happens when they start to break down the old and discover the new.

Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: After the Glitter Fades by Diane Marina

After The Glitter Fades

"Loved everything about this story. I couldn’t put it down. The MC’s Siena and Julia were amazing together and the angst just made it that much better. All of the supporting characters added to the plot as well. I liked how the story was told from both viewpoints."

Siena Armetta. Film star, Hollywood icon, tabloid darling. To her fans and the media, she appears to be living a dream life. But things aren't always as they seem. The price she pays to maintain her fame is to deny who she is. Siena's number one rule in life - self-preservation at all costs. Admitting the truth could be a career killer.

Enter Julia Westbrooke...

Julia is soaring to new heights as a nationwide entertainment news anchor. Since coming out, she has been presented with countless opportunities - most recently, entry into a new circle of friends who are among the Hollywood elite - a circle in which Siena Armetta plays a starring role. Unwillingly thrown together, Siena and Julia fight their growing attraction. Will Siena risk it all for Hollywood's most prominent media personality? Will Julia ignore everything she's worked for and step quietly back into the closet?

After the Glitter Fades is an irresistibly emotional roller coaster ride.
