2008 RITA Award Nominations

The Romance Writers of America has released their list of nominees for the 2008 RITA Awards. There are a few good books on the list, but most of them I've never heard of. Some of the highlights (and lowlights) are:

Contemporary Single Title Romance Finalists:
Blame It On Cupid by Jennifer Greene (erm, I read this last weekend and I can't even remember what it was about)

Catch Of The Day by Kristan Higgins (great story, I'm such a sucker for books with dogs)

Tangled Up In You by Rachel Gibson (I've really enjoyed all her Idaho books)

Paranormal Romance Finalists:
Demon's Kiss by Maggie Shane (hated it from the first, has lame character names like Vixen and Reaper)

Lover Revealed by J.R. Ward (good book but hated the ending)

Romance Novella Finalists:
Christmas Cravings from Holiday With A Vampire by Maureen Child (I'm not big on short stories/novellas but this one was really good. Plus I got it as a free download from eHarlequin over Christmas)
