You can never have too much romance....
Romance novels represent about 40% of all fiction titles sold. If you're one of those who just can't get enough romance, you may be interested in the authors and books that were highlighted at the Romance Writers of America annual RITA Awards in August. Twelve authors were honored for their work across a variety of categories. We didn't review all of these books here at Select Editions but there's sure to be some really good ones on this list. Let us know if you check them out!
