2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Re-Inventing Love by Storm Grant (135-06-05-2016)

Re-Inventing Love was an entertaining and engaging read. The characters were very endearing and I loved Max's distinctive voice. Storm created a very credible world and I was transported there every time I picked the book up. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Amazon Kindle: Re-Inventing Love

Engineer and assistant inventor,Maximilian Grun is in love with his employer, but he daren't reveal the truth. It's 1910 and if Canadian authorities learned of his homosexuality, they'd deport him back to Germany where the country of his birth would become the country of his death.

When promising young inventor and mathematician,Dr. Jasper Hamilton expresses his own feelings for Max, the young German regretfully declines. He cannot risk their partnership, their reputations—their very lives!

Then a rival inventor sabotages their inventions. Jasper is caught between the physical and the metaphysical, reduced to atoms, and transported to the spirit plane! Max is devastated, deeply regretting his lost chances.

But Jasper manages to communicate across the aether, telling Max he must reverse the machine's polarity. But without Jasper's talent for mathematics, the calculations defeat Max.

Can the would-be lovers bridge the gap between life and death to finally be together?When a ghastly lab accident blows a respected inventor away, his loyal assistant must devise a way to bridge the gap between the planes of existence to reunite them in life and in love.
