And the Winner Is ... Me and You!

It’s that time of year again.  Hollywood has its Oscars and Golden Globes.  Genre fiction authors have similar events.  For Marissa and me, one of the biggest honors is the RT Book Reviews Reviewer’s Choice Awards. 

The reviewers for RT Book Reviews read hundreds of books a year.  Having them choose your book as a finalist is a huge honor, and winning is, well, marvelous.  Of the many categories, one is for best Love Inspired Historical novel of the approximately 50 books published in that line for the year.  The nominees were

His Mountain Miss by Karen Kirst
The Outlaw’s Redemption by Renee Ryan
Return of the Cowboy Doctor by Lacy Williams
The Courting Campaign by Regina Scott (I've heard she's good)
The Heiress’s Homecoming by Regina Scott

And I am tickled pink to announce that the winner for best Love Inspired Historical novel for 2013 has been selected and it is The Heiress’s Homecoming

Really!  I’m pinching myself. 

But the good news doesn't stop there.  Around Easter I usually hand out a bonus.  This year, I've written a short online story telling how Peter Quimby, that charming valet from The Wife Campaign, met his match.  It’s set just after the close of The Husband Campaign.  I hope you like it.  You can read it free here.   

You might just call it a win-win situation.

Thanks, Lynn! I've never had a book nominated before, so with two nominations this year and then the win, I'm over the moon with delight!
