The Winners Are...
Pamela Tracy here. We've been talking lately about contests, winners, and the books. I wasn't able to attend the Romance Writers of America conference this year. A birthday and psuedo-family reunion filled the time instead.
But, I paid attention to this contest.
Young Adult Romance: The Farm by Emily McKay ( I read this one! It reminded me of The Hungar Games and I enjoyed it. I've lent it out and don't remember to who!)
Best First Book: The Haunting of Maddy Clare by Simone St. James (When the finalists were announced, this one intrigued me, and I purchased it via Kindle. Then, I purchased her other - I think there's only one other. She writes in the vein of Susanna Kearsley and Barbara Michaels... favorites of mine)
Contemporary Single Title Romance: The Way Back Home by Barbara Freethy
Historical Romance: A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean
Inspirational Romance: Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden (I'll have to read this one. Of the finalists, I'd read Missy's and The Wedding Dress)
Long Contemporary Series Romance: A Gift for All Seasons by Karen Templeton
Novel with Strong Romantic Elements: The Haunting of Maddy Clare by Simone St. James
Paranormal Romance: Shadow's Claim by Kresley Cole
Romance Novella: Seduced by a Pirate by Eloisa James
Romantic Suspense: Scorched by Laura Griffin
Short Contemporary Series Romance: A Night of No Return by Sarah Morgan
What about you? Have you read any... or have the winners made you think, "Ah, I need to pick this one up."
