"Mistletoe" wins a RITA!

I’ve had to pinch the statue to convince myself it’s real, but there it is: a RITA award for The Mischief of the Mistletoe for Best Regency Historical.

Huge hugs to everyone who asked me to write a book about Turnip– this one’s for you!

    Turnip, with a warm grin, reaches for Arabella’s hand, “We knew she’d do it, did we not, my dear.”

    Mischief Of The Mistletoe was my very first read of yours and I knew immediately it was a cut above. Having now read ALL of the Pink Carnation series, (I’m on page 400 of The Orchid Affair) you are so very deserving of awards and recognition. I wish you every success in the brutal business of writing and publishing. I’m totally in love with everything you turn out for all of us!

    Congratulations, Lauren! That’s wonderful! It was great to meet you in person last week.

    Congratulations! I LOVED that book. I’m so glad others did, too!
