2013 Rainbow Book Awards – Honorable Mention

Editorial Reviews:

I was sitting on the edge of my seat through the eight hours it took me to read this book. Scratch that, I was laying down through most of it for the added comfort. I not only couldn’t put the book down, I didn’t want to put the book down. The characters will send you on an emotionally charged, intense roller coaster ride that will have you laughing, yelling, and crying. So very intense, but oh so good. You have to read this book to experience it yourself, words do not do it justice. – Alyssa Brock

Simply outstanding. It evoked every emotion imaginable; certainly one of the best romances I’ve ever read, gay straight or otherwise. – Artdeko

Suzie makes it hard to not fall in love with her characters…their flaws, their weaknesses, their special strengths, and their magnificence….but, whom they couldn’t have existed without one, beloved Grampa. A poignant story, beautifully painted, that surely wouldn’t have been complete without the sweet heart that created them. Thank you, Suzie Carr! – C.B.


Free-spirited masseuse Ruby Clark treasures her independence, refusing to allow anyone to encroach on her sense of control. She succeeds at remaining unaffected until she meets Nadia Chase, a self-assured, sexy new client who sets Ruby’s heart in motion. The two develop a connection that drips with chemistry. As Ruby struggles to maintain her autonomy amidst the fervent attraction, Nadia reveals a secret that threatens to derail both their professional relationship and their blossoming love.

Seeking guidance and support from Shawna, their transgender friend who struggles with her own issues of self-worth, and Ruby’s grampa, a wise storyteller who raised Ruby in the aftermath of a childhood tragedy, the unlikely foursome embarks on a quest to learn the meaning of love, letting go, and staying true.
