RITA Nominees

Love on the LineEvery year, I write a blog about the nominees for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA© Awards, and it’s that time again.  For those that are unfamiliar, these awards are given in 12 different categories (historical, inspirational, paranormal, etc.)  to the best of romance published in 2011.  Some of my favorite authors are nominated this year, and it will be interesting to see who takes home the prize.  Awards will be given out on July 28th; be sure to check back here for the complete list of winners.

The full list of nominees can be found here, but here are some of my favorites:
