2018-2019 Rainbow Awards: Best Gay Historical Romance

And the Rainbow Award goes to...



1.
Alex Jane - The Arrangement


The Arrangement (Homestead Legacy Book 1)

"The Arrangement is a compelling love story between two shifters with a past that will stay with you after its conclusion. A gay Beauty and the Beast meets Secret Garden, the simple tale is sweetly told from the heart. Alex Jane has written a satisfying historical romance."

"This is my first Alex Jane's book I read and I'm definitely not disappointed. In fact, I'm looking forward to reading more from this wonderful author. The story flowed smoothly, the characters were lovable and caring, especially Ruth with her mother hen actions, and Solomon with his caring personality."

"This book was a fantastic blend of history and the paranormal."


Anna Butler - The Jackal's House (Lancaster's Luck #2)

The Jackal’s House (Lancaster's Luck Book 2)

"This is an entertaining and logical sequel to The Gilded Scarab for readers who like the combination of historical MM romance and science fiction. Anna Butler created realistic, likeable, and interesting leading characters in a captivating environment. The leading character’s first person voice is so realistic that I couldn’t believe it wasn’t written by someone in 1900. The story also included enticing villains, a nice plot twist, and a satisfying ending. I believe the novel would have been even stronger if edited to alleviate the many lengthy and repetitive sections. I’m looking forward to book 3 in the Lancaster’s Luck series!"

"I loved part 1, this is still good, but a little less captivating."

"Rich, engrossing steampunk world that pulls you in and refuses to let go - engaging and seductive."


2.
Eli Easton - Robby Riverton: Mail Order Bride


Robby Riverton: Mail Order Bride

"Looking at the cover and the title gave me a feeling it would be a funny comedy. It wasn't, even if it had it's funny parts what with Robbie being disguised as Rowenna. I guess I was expecting full-on chuckles. And although I was a bit disappointed I still enjoyed reading it immensely. I love reading historical westerns and I feel there aren't many out there. At least not in the M/M genre. Highly recommended."

"Great fun, sort of a cross between Louis L'Amour and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert."


3.
Rebecca Cohen - Captain Merric


Captain Merric

"Well written, deliciously attention to historical detail, and great romance between British naval officer and swashbuckling pirate - a fun read."
