RNA ROMANCE PRIZE

I’m totally thrilled to announce that yesterday, at the annual awards lunch of the Romantic Novelists’ Association held at the Savoy Hotel in London, the Betty Neels Rosebowl was handed on to author JESSICA HART for her Mills & Boon “Tender” Romance (Harlequin Romance), CONTRACTED: CORPORATE WIFE. The award, for short romance, is judged by readers, which makes it doubly special.

This is the second year running that the Award has been won by a “Tender” romance, an eloquent demonstration of just how appealing and readable the series is to the modern reader.

I think it's the best series HMB have. The stories in the 'modern' line are generally too unbelievable for my taste and the medicals... well, they remind me of my grandmother (she loved being in hospital and had imaginary affairs going on amongst the staff). Give me a good 'Tender' any day :)

I agree, Sharon. The "tender" romances have been my favorites from the beginning.

I'm so happy for Ms. Hart! That book was very enjoyable, and I loved the characters' unique personalities.
