RITA Nod for Slow Tango With a Prince!

For me, writing is a joy unto itself. I love sitting down at my computer and crafting a story about complex, interesting characters. There's also great joy in hearing from readers who have fallen in love with the people, places, and family dynamics of the Royal Scandals series.

This week, however, brought an unexpected joy. I received a call from the Romance Writers of America to notify me that Slow Tango With a Prince is a finalist in the 2015 RITA Awards.  The RITAs are the highest awards given to romance fiction, so this is a huge, huge honor.

The winners will be announced at a black-tie ceremony in NYC on July 25. For a full list of the RITA categories and finalist books, visit the Romance Writers of America website. There are a lot of spectacular books...it might give you ideas for future reads or book club picks.

Thanks so much to all of you who've written to tell me you enjoyed reading the story of Prince Vittorio and television host Emily Andrews. I had a blast writing their Argentinian-set romance, and knowing how much their story meant to you is icing on the cake.
