RITA shine!

It's the start of Awards Season here in Romance Land, and our very own Amy Andrews is leading the way!

This week the Romance Writers of America announced the finalists of their Rita awards and Amy has two - yes, you read that right - TWO books on that list. They're also books with two different publishers. Amy, you are a rock star!

  So, which books? I hear you ask.

A Christmas Miracle by Amy Andrews
Harlequin Mills & Boon, Medical
Megan Haslam, editor

Troy (American Extreme Bullrider Tour #5) by Amy Andrews
Tule Publishing
Sinclair Sawheny, editor

There are some other DownUnder authors -- two Aussies and a Kiwi -- who have also finalled, so a huge cheer to them as well!

The Dating Game by Avril Tremayne
HarperCollins, HQ Digital
Victoria Oundjian, editor

The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby by Marion Lennox
Harlequin, Romance
Sheila Hodgson, editor

Forbidden River by Brynn Kelly
Harlequin, HQN
Allison Carroll, editor

You can find the full list of finalists at the RWAmerica site.

So, tell me, have you read any of these DownUnder Rita finalist books? Or any of the other finalists? I'm wondering if maybe I should start reading my way through the list...?


  1. Amy is such a legend, Rachel! I'm so excited for her. :-) And this is a great list of downunder authors. I haven't read any of these books (yet), though several of them are on my Kindle. And I suspect the rest will make it there too. Yay for the RITA -- award time is so exciting. :-)

  2. Woohoo I am thrilled for these authors way to Amy, I have read Marion Lennox's book and it is so worthy of being there and I have the others on my kindle waiting for me you all know what my TBR pile is like and I plan to get them read asap. I have not read any of Brynn Kelly's stories but I have heard a lot of good things about them

    Have Fun


  3. I read Troy and loved it. I also loved Sarah Mayberry’s book in that series, Tanner. Now I just have to read the other short-listed books. Congratulations Amy, Avril, Marion and Brynn!
