The Sandrine Gasq-Dion Award for Gay Paranormal Romance

And the Rainbow Award goes to...


1) Depth of Return M. Raiya
Gay - Paranormal Romance
Series: Another Healing (Book 2)
Paperback: 216 pages
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (September 5, 2016)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1634775384
ISBN-13: 978-1634775380
Amazon: Depth of Return M. Raiya

1) I got hooked on the first page and now need the first book in the series, although I followed this one okay without having read it. The descriptive style made it very easy to visualise the setting. The characters are engaging, and the plot is exciting and intriguing—a real page turner. I loved the world building, and in particularly the magic system.
2) I found this book to be a joy to read with its engaging plot, interesting MCs and cast of supporting characters. Easy to follow, despite having not read book 1, which I will be doing very soon, and full of suspense, atmosphere and plot, plot, plot.
3) This was a great read and an excellent follow up of book one in the Another Healing series. I really liked the main characters from the beginning and could not help but cheer them on as they searched for their HEA.

2) P.S. I Spook You S.E. Harmon
Gay - Paranormal Romance
Paperback: 256 pages
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (June 12, 2017)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1635336902
ISBN-13: 978-1635336900
Amazon: P.S. I Spook You S.E. Harmon

1) First book by this author. I saw this when it first was released and went by it because I thought it was about a ghost in love, no I did not read the blurb. That will teach me to judge a book by the title. I really enjoyed the characters and the story line. Will definitely have to read more by this author.
2) This book was too much fun. I loved the main characters, and I loved them together. The mystery was well thought-out and well-executed. The wry, self-deprecating narrative voice worked so well and gave the entire book a charming humor. Loved it, loved it, loved it.
3) The mystery in this novel is carefully plotted, and the paranormal elements are skillfully woven in. The banter between the two lead characters is an absolute delight.
4) Whether intentional - or not - I like that this story was a nod to the 1980s-style 'ghosts are tedious'. I enjoyed the tension between Rain and Danny. Love + crime solving + ghosts... what is there not to like?

3) Eli Easton How to Save a Life (Howl at the Moon #4)
Gay - Paranormal Romance
File Size: 971 KB
Print Length: 415 pages
Publication Date: August 28, 2017
Language: English
Amazon: Eli Easton How to Save a Life (Howl at the Moon #4)

1) Eli Easton builds a convincing world of dogs who are so devoted and show such love for an owner they catch the 'spark' and experience the quickening that transforms them into dog-human shifters. In this book the author does a credible job applying the premise to an abused animal with a fear of men. Her writing style easily captures the elements attention and draws the reader into her story without becoming boring. A very satisfying read.
2) I found this to be an engaging and charming story. I really like the way the author kept the canine personality traits the quickened were born with, rather than having them becoming fully human when they changed. Both MC's character arcs were well developed and really added depth to the story. 
3) This book is part of a series and readers should really read the series in order since there is a lot of character crossover. That said, this is a change from the typical shifter stories and fans of that genre should give it a try.

Runner Up:

4) Vespers (The Hours of the Night #1) by Irene Preston & Liv Rancourt
