2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Innocent Auction by Victoria Sue (027-03-04-2016)

1) The Innocent Auction was a beautiful and emotional story. The author created some really fascinating characters and her writing style is just lovely. I'm normally not a big fan of historical romances, but this one really captivated me. I was sad it had to end.

2) A good solid book!

London 1810. Their love was a death sentence. Deacon, Viscount Carlisle, was aware of the slums and gin-lanes of London. Just as he was aware of the underground traffic that furnished the brothels and bath houses with human innocents. He was also aware that the so-called justice system would hang the accused without much of an attempt at a defense, unless the unfortunate had deep pockets to pay for it. He just hadn’t expected to be directly involved in any of it. It started with a plea for help and ended with forbidden love, the love between a Viscount and a stable-boy. An impossible love and a guarantee of the hangman's noose. Will Deacon fight for Tom? Will he risk the death sentence and take that fight from the stately halls of his English mansion to the horrors of Newgate Prison and the slums of London? Or will he realize that if he doesn't, death will be a welcome end to the loneliness of the sentence he is already living?
