2011 RITA Winners Announced

The Iron KingA few weeks ago, I blogged about the nominees for the Romance Writers of America’s annual RITA© awards.  The winners have been announced, and they include many of romance’s best and most popular authors. While not all of my favorites took home awards, I look forward to reading the winning titles and hopefully discovering new favorite authors.  Did any of your favorite authors win?
