A Historical Romance RITA Finalist!

One morning in late March, I got a wonderful phone call: Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress was named a finalist in the Short Historical category of the RITA® awards! The RITAs are the most distinguished award in romance writing, and I couldn’t be more honored. 
When I got off the phone, I told Little Miss R the good news. She gave me a big hug and told me congratulations–then asked me to finish making her a chicken leg out of Play-Doh. Priorities, people.
See the list of RITA and Golden Heart finalists here. Which ones have you read? I'm going to be grabbing a whole bunch for my TBR pile.
If you haven't read Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress, you can find the first chapter here. And on the Jaunty Quills blog, I'm giving away a print copy, so come on over!
Theresa Romain is the bestselling author of historical romances, including the Matchmaker trilogy, the Holiday Pleasures series, the Royal Reward series, and the Romance of the Turf trilogy. Please visit her on the web at
