NOT ONE, BUT TWO LOVECAT KORU AWARD FINALISTS!!!

Huge congratulations to both Louisa George (in the Short Sexy Romance Category) and to Sue Mackay (in the Short Sweet Category) for making the finals in the Romance Writers of New Zealand Inc. Koru Award of Excellence this year! I'm so excited for you two and can't wait for Awards night on the 13th of August. You're both big winners in my book!


So, which books did they final with?


Let's take a look:


Louisa George, with TEMPTED BY HER ITALIAN SURGEON

The doctor everyone's talking about! 

When a deliciously naughty photo of pediatric transplant surgeon Matteo Finelli goes viral, social media expert Ivy Leigh is called in to discipline him. It will be a challenge…especially as Ivy is far from immune to Matteo's charismatic charm herself! 

Dedicated doc Matteo doesn't care about social media policy—he's far more interested in uncovering the warm, vulnerable heart Ivy hides beneath her suit jacket. The chemistry between them is sizzling, but can he persuade ever-cautious Ivy to take a risk and give in to an irresistible temptation?

Ooooh, you can just feel the heat, can't you?




 And we have Sue Mackay, with REUNITED...IN PARIS!

A second chance…

When Dr Tori Wells arrives to speak at a conference in France, it finally feels as if her dreams are coming true! Until her ex-husband, Dr Ben Wells, turns up unexpectedly…

Ben might be a changed man after his pride nearly destroyed his career, but one thing certainly hasn’t changed — the way Tori makes him feel!

Reunited in the city of love, Ben and Tori are forced to share the secrets that tore them apart seven years ago. Dare they take another chance on their future, together?

I love a reunion story, don't you?


Good luck on the night, ladies, I'll be there cheering for you and thank you so much for your wonderful stories!

  7. Congrats both Louisa and Sue! Looking forward to hearing the actual winners.
    Fairly certain that while both books are on my to read list, that I haven't read either yet.
    Have more I want to say... but not sure I'm allowed to.
