The RITA finalists were announced this week (essentially the Oscars of romance novels) and one of my fellow Harlequin Romance authors, Susan Meier, is in the mix with The Tycoon's Secret Daughter. Susan and I both wrote for Silhouette Romance and Harlequin Romance and participated in two series together, the author-created Wedding Planner series and also the recent Larkville series. Another member of our group, Melissa McClone was a finalist last year with Christmas Magic on the Mountain, a wonderful book. So, it's been a great few years.
Often I don't get time to read as much as I'd like, but I started reading The Tycoon's Secret Daughter last night and I could automatically see why it's a finalist. Great characters, good pacing and a strong conflict. I highly recommend it.
