RoNA Awards 2012: The Results

Earlier this week, the Gladstone Library played host to a group of romantic ladies (and a few men) who had joined together to celebrate romantic fiction at its finest. There was bubbly and frocks in every direction and a fantastic atmosphere as every person in the room was clearly a massive lover of romantic books. From the epic to the historic, the hilarious to the contemporary, authors and readers alike got to delight in proceedings.

Robert Hale Ltd Author Jan Jones was nominated for her book The Kydd Inheritance but lost out to former Robert Hale Author Sarah Mallory, who won the coveted RoNA Rose Award for her book The Dangerous Lord Darrington. (Her novel The Belles Dames Club by Melinda Hammond is out now in ebook format – available at Amazon Kindle Store, Apple iBookstore, Waterstones, Kobo and Mobi).

Many congratulations to Sarah on her win and indeed all the winners from yesterday’s award ceremony. Thanks also to all those people behind the scenes who organised such a fantastic afternoon.
