2015 Rainbow Awards Runner-Up for Gay Contemporary Romance – Arctic Absolution

12348067_1174925609208186_43252085009555681_nArcticAbsolution_Cvr_Med I’m completely blown away by the news that Arctic Absolution is a Runner-Up in the Gay Contemporary Romance category of the 2015 Rainbow Awards! Fellow ForbiddenFiction author, Nick Kinsley, also got a Runner-Up spot in the Best Gay Debut category for his novel, Behind Locked Doors. Congrats to him and thank you to all of the judges and all of those involved in making the awards happen.

Arctic Absolution was one of my biggest challenges to write, mostly from a practical standpoint. There was so much research and mental gymnastics involved in bringing both Dixon and Jaye to life in the wild setting of remote Alaska. I’m incredibly proud of this story and am glad others have enjoyed it so much! The prequel to this novel, Caged Jaye, is in the proofing stages right now. I hope to announce a date for a cover reveal soon, as well as a release date, so stay posted!

2015 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Double Heat


DoubleHeat_CvrPDFWow! I’m completely floored right now. Double Heat (Twin Ties 3) has been given an Honorable Mention in the 2015 Rainbow Awards! This is my third book to receive an Honorable Mention this year, along with Arctic Absolution and Song of the Lonesome Cowboy. Last year, Forgive Us and My Brother’s Lover (Twin Ties 1) were finalists in the 2014 Rainbow Awards, and My Brother’s Lover received an Honorable Mention.

“Liked this one a lot and am very intrigued to go back and check out the rest of the series. The right amount of sexy and angst.”

Huge thanks to the judges and to Elisa for the wonderful recognition!!
