Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Devouring Flame by E.J. Russell

Devouring Flame (Dreamspun Beyond Book 35)

"Although this book touches on darker themes of slavery, trafficking and employer abuse via the intriguing fantasy world it's set in, I found it to be an engaging read. The characters are very well drawn and the dynamic between them was great. The secondary characters fitted perfectly into the story, I thought the author really conjured up the misery of the carnival and the people who unfortunately worked there. The development of the MCs relationship was very believable – I really came to care about them - and it didn't matter that I hadn't read book 1."

An Enchanted Occasions Story

Reunited and reignited.

While cutting through the Interstices—the post-creation gap between realms—Smith, half-demon tech specialist for Enchanted Occasions Event Planning, spies the person he yearns for daily but dreads seeing again: the ifrit, Hashim of the Windrider clan.

On their one literally smoldering night together, Smith, stupidly besotted, revealed his true name—a demon’s greatest vulnerability. When Hashim didn’t return the favor, then split the next morning with no word? Message received, loud and clear: Thanks but no, thanks.

Although Hashim had burned to return Smith’s trust, it was impossible. The wizard who conjured him holds his true name in secret, and unless Hashim discovers it, he’ll never be free.

When their attraction sparks once more, the two unite to search for Hashim’s hidden name—which would be a hell of a lot easier if they didn’t have to contend with a convention full of food-crazed vampires on the one day out of the century they can consume something other than blood.

But if they fail, Hashim will be doomed to eternal slavery, and their reignited love will collapse in the ashes.

Luckily Smith is the guy who gets shit done. And Hashim is never afraid to heat things up.
