And the winner is...

I've woken to some good news this morning.
FOUND: HIS FAMILY has won the Cataromance Reviewers' Choice Award 2006(July-Dec) for Best Mills and Boon Tender Romance.
This book was also nominated in the Best Silhouette Romance category, which was taken out by Sophie Weston.
Several of my buddies picked up awards too (yay!): Trish Wylie for Best Mod Ex, Ally Blake for Best MandB Romance and Fiona Lowe for Best Med Romance. Go girls!
I had great doubts when writing FOUND: HIS FAMILY. It was a highly emotional book for me, with Toby suffering leukemia and needing a bone marrow transplant, and I'd never done a book like this before. It's also a departure from my usual fun, flirty style so I wondered what readers would think.
Thankfully, so far I've had nothing but positive feedback and this award means a lot.
I've been nominated for a few Cataromance awards but this is my first win since I won Best Harlequin Romance with my first book, THE TYCOON'S DATING DEAL back in 2004, so I'm thrilled :)

I loved that book, Nic, so I am not surprised it won.

Congrats Nic! What a lovely end-point for a book you found tricky. I think what with you and Trish's pineapple there's a pattern forming ;).

Yay on the lovely win!!!
