This year the numbers of shortlisted books in each category varies, a change made by the committee to create a fairer reflection of the numbers of books being entered into those categories. In addition, we’re delighted that for the first time four independently published books have been nominated, particularly as the authors are all long-standing RNA members.
For more details on the awards and how to obtain tickets please visit the RNA website and official news page.
35 shortlistees and no novels written by men. Men DO tend to hog most book prizes, but I find it hard to believe the nominations didn't include any 'male talent'.
Some of these names may be pseudonymous. Some men write romance novels under a women's name...
Congratulations to all nominees - you're all fab. xxx
The number 1 bestselling romantic comedy title on Amazon Kindle right now is "Mad Love" by Nick Spalding. David Nicholls is probably the bestselling romcom author in the UK over the last 10 years - "One Day" has sold over 5 million copies around the world. I honestly don't believe these shortlists reflect men writing as women. They do reflect large publishing house/imprint dominance, and the cliché of certain readers reading certain books.
congrats to all who are shortlisted .. x
Congrats to all nominees. I am so excited to download eBook of romance novel so I can read and enjoy full story in my upcoming nights.

I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email firstname.lastname@example.org. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children.
