. . . That's what we're calling it here in Wenchlandia. In case you hadn't heard, two Wench books have finaled for Romance Writers of America's RITA, and another Wench has been awarded RWA's Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement honor. Wenches rock!
Bride By Mistake by Anne Gracie and Too Dangerous to Desire by Cara Elliott are RITA finalists in the Best Historical Romance category! Way to go, ladies!
And the cherry on top is Mary Jo Putney, who will be honored with the Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement award at RWA's annual conference in Atlanta, GA this coming July. (Couldn't happen to a more deserving person!)
