The main award went to Erica James for her book, “Gardens of Delight”. I was keen to see who won the “Romance” award for short romantic fiction. I was seated next to the winner, Jessica Hart (a fellow Tender romance author) for “Contracted: Corporate Wife”. I really enjoyed this book and loved the fact that the heroine, Lou, was 45.

I also had some good news of my own. Just as well I had a glass of champagne in hand to celebrate with! I sold my monster - the Luke and Gaby book that I’ve blogged about recently. And much to my surprise, apart from dropping the prologue, it’s going through without any revisions. Seems all that ripping apart and putting back together paid off in the end. And my editor is right, I think it is a stronger book for all the changes.
