The Romance Writers of America announced the finalists for the 2012 RITA Awards and two of our favorite steamy romances are on their list!
Darynda Jones' fun and sexy debut, FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT, about part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper Charley Davidson is a finalist for 2012 Best First Book and 2012 Best Novel with Strong Romantic Elements! Let's not forget that FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT previously won the 2009 Golden Heart for Best Paranormal Novel.
Christina Brooke's steamy Regency historical, HEIRESS IN LOVE, is the first in her scandalous Ministry of Marriage series following widow Roxdale who is quite inconveniently falling hard for an unrepentant rake. HEIRESS IN LOVE is a finalist for the 2012 Best Regency Historical Romance!
Way to go, Darynda and Christina!
