Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Family Camp by Eli Easton

Family Camp: Daddy Dearest, Book 1

"This was a fun read. I truly enjoyed reading the couple's smooth romance, how their interest in each other developed, and especially the kids, each with their own 'disability' and how a strong family unit became strong. Wonderful story and I highly recommend it!"

When Geo signs up for Family Camp, he envisions nature hikes, s'mores, and a chance to win over his recalcitrant new foster kids, Jayden and Lucy. He's tried to become a dad for so long, and he hopes the three of them can be the family he's always wanted. What he doesn't anticipate is the prickly and gorgeous camp counselor who constantly comes to his rescue.

Travis spends a week every year at Camp Evermore, the camp his adoptive parents own. As a pro baseball player, his presence guarantees a full campground and excited campers. He has one rule: Never, ever mess around with anyone at camp. His profession demands he stay in the closet. But one sweet and funny new dad is about to test all his resolve.

Sparks fly for Geo and Travis, and not because of the nightly campfire. Having been a foster kid himself, Travis is drawn to Geo's sincerity and big heart and to his kids. The four of them just fit. But will this be a summer romance? Or can they find a way to be a family long after Family Camp is over?

Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Rainbow Briefs volume 2 by Kira Harp

Rainbow Briefs volume 2

"I liked some of the stories more than the others, but on a whole the book was good. I’d like to read Volume 1. There are some pretty good authors out there."

"I must say that whenever I have to rate an anthology there are usually one or more stories that don't capture my attention. With Ms. Harp's anthology, though, I was mesmerized with all! These stories are so well written, with quite a few where I wanted them to continue. I'm not usually one to like FF stories but these were written so candidly, so natural, so perfectly I really enjoyed them all. I'm really liking this storyteller. This is the second time I read any of her stories and I'm wanting to read more! Bravo, Kira!"

Three people can be the strongest shape.
There's nothing quite like a gorgeous girl on a shape-shifting motorcycle.

Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Ten by Tia Fielding

Ten (Love by Numbers Book 1)

"I actually started reading the other book first and had to stop and come and read this one. Bloody brilliant. Loved it. Loved the characters. Loved the story line. Loved everything about it. I know I’ll love the other one just as much when I finish reading it tomorrow. This one really sucked me in and what I've read of #2 will as well."

Can two broken men build one life?

Ten years.

That’s what Makai lost for a crime he didn’t commit. He’s been exonerated, but the abuse he suffered in prison isn’t so easy to leave behind. He heads to the one place he remembers being happy: Acker, Wisconsin, where he spent summers with his grandpa. Unfortunately, not everyone wants Makai there.

Ten days.

That’s how long Emil, now twenty-one, was held prisoner as a teenager. The mental and physical injuries he suffered at the hands of a drug trafficking ring still haunt him.

Nightmares, anxiety, and PTSD challenge the connection forming between Makai and Emil, though together, they might find a way to move beyond their pain and into a future—and a relationship—that both had thought impossible.

Now they just have to convince Emil’s father, the town sheriff. It won’t be easy with danger closer than they know….
