Lovers in Arms - Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention  
HonorableMentionSMWhoa. Lovers in Arms just received an Honorable Mention in the 2013 Rainbow Awards. I am still totally stoked and struggling to believe this. I mean, seriously?

And to top things off, three (!) of the judges recommended Lovers in Arms for the Honorable Mentions - and what flattering things they had to say:

Jennifer: I swear I'm a much harder judge, but this book was just amazing. I started reading others sent to me, but this one sucked me in and I stopped reading them.) The characters are fleshed out in a way that makes them feel real. The book is superb, from the supporting characters to the inclusion of German in the book. It felt real, and I enjoyed every moment.

Tessa: When I read the description of this novel, I first thought "Not again. Captive enemy lovers - how original". Let me tell you how wrong I was. This novel is actually very sweet and well developed. Two main characters just fall in love from the sky (one of them literally). Like two pieces of the puzzle that clicked together just right - they are the answers to each other’s life search. Once united, they are unwilling and unable to stay apart despite all the life challenges of that difficult war and post war time. Thank you again for this sweet story.

Rosie: I loved the originality of the story. I have never read a story about the Nuremberg trials that was a romance before. So I take my hat off to the author for not only taking on that plot but succeeding with it. This was a completely charming love story. I thought the character he created in the Nazi Officer Johann von Biehn was amazing, he was both honourable and believable. His American love interest Captain Frank Hawthorne was equally well written. I thoroughly enjoyed this charming love story.


I can only repeat it.

Whoa.

Maybe the story is awesome, I'm just some guy from downtown. ^^

Thanks, dear!
