RNA announces awards shortlist

11th February 2010

The shortlist for this year's Romantic Novelists' Association's (RNA's) awards has been confirmed.

Among the titles in the running for the romantic novel of the year accolade are Passion by Louise Bagshawe, Miranda Dickinson's Fairytale of New York and A Glimpse at Happiness by Jean Fullerton.

Lucy Dillon's Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts, The Glass Painter's Daughter by Rachel Hore and Santa Montefiore's The Italian Matchmaker complete the nominations for the honour.

The organisation, which was formed 50 years ago, also revealed the books in the running for the love story of the year prize, which recognises shorter romantic works.

Animal Instincts by Nell Dixon, Sophie King's The Wedding Party and Fair Deception by Jan Jones are some of the titles shortlisted.

Katie Fforde, chair of the RNA, commented: 'We are proud to showcase contemporary women's fiction, chick lit, sagas and historical fiction. Some are written by newcomers and some by more established authors.'

Last year, a poll by Mills and Boon named Mr Rochester, the hero of Charlotte Bronte's classic Jane Eyre, as the most romantic character in literature.
