I got “the call” this morning that Twice Tempted by a Rogue is a finalist in the 2011 RITAs, in the Best Regency Historical category! The RITA awards are presented by the Romance Writers of America each year, at our annual conference.

I am so thrilled and honored, not least because I’m in the most amazingly talented company. Just look at this list of finalists:

    His Christmas Pleasure by Cathy Maxwell (Avon Books; Lucia Macro, editor)
    The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren Willig (Dutton; Erika Imranyi, editor)
    Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean (Avon Books; Carrie Feron, editor)
    Provocative in Pearls by Madeline Hunter (Jove; Wendy McCurdy, editor)
    To Surrender to a Rogue by Cara Elliott (Forever; Frances Jalet-Miller, editor)
    Twice Tempted by a Rogue by Tessa Dare (Ballantine Books; Kate Collins, editor)
    When Harry Met Molly by Kieran Kramer (St. Martin’s Press; Jennifer Enderlin, editor)
    The Wicked Wyckerly by Patricia Rice (NAL/Signet; Ellen Edwards, editor)

(You can view all the categories here.)

Congratulations to all the finalists!

The amazing Sarah Maclean has a giveaway up and running already, where you could win all of the finalist books in my category!
