Sometimes, you have to blow the trumpet for your fellow Addicts.

I'm here (out of turn, and without their knowledge or permission) to yell, scream and cheer for our own Susanna Kearsley who is a RITA FINALIST in the Novel with Strong Romantic Elements category with her book, The Rose Garden.

The Ritas are the biggest romance awards in the world and I for one am thrilled! The award winner will be announced in July.

And let's not forget our own Christina Courtenay who is up for Romantic Novel of the Year with her book, Highland Storms, after winning the Historical Romance RoNA in March. This will be announced in May.

Please join me in wild applause and in wishing Susanna and Christina the best for the final announcements. We Addicts are hugely proud of them!


  1. Congratulations Susanna and Christina! Exciting for you both.

  2. Many congratulations to you both, wonderful news!

  3. *riotous applause* Congratulations. Recognition like that has got to be dizzying.

  5. Thanks so much everyone and especially Julie - really appreciate your support!
