Wahoo! I'm thrilled to announce that last December's CARTER BRAVO'S CHRISTMAS BRIDE is a 2016 RITA finalist in the Short Contemporary Romance category of Romance Writers of America's RITA awards competition.
The RITA is the romance writer's answer to the Oscar and we all want one. My books have made the finals seven times in my career. I hope this is the time that RITA comes home with me!
