I was delighted to join the panel of judges for The Love Story of the Year. The award is made by the Romantic Novelists Association for a shorter romance where there is a strong emphasis on the developing central relationship. The reading public have chosen the following shortlist (and they've given us a tough job):

Animal Instincts, Nell Dixon, Little Black Dress
Always the Bridesmaid, Nina Harrington, Harlequin Mills & Boon
Fair Deception, Jan Jones, Robert Hale
The Wedding Party, Sophie King, Hodder

The award ceremony will be on Tuesday March 16 2010 at the Royal Garden Hotel, in Kensington, London.
