Congratulations to RITA Winners Karen Templeton & Sarah Morgan!

The Romance Writers of America have announced the winners of the 2013 RITA Awards and we’re thrilled to celebrate two Harlequin authors who took home the big prize! Congratulations to Karen Templeton and Sarah Morgan for their awards:

Long Contemporary Series Romance Winner – Karen Templeton, A Gift for All Seasons (Harlequin Special Edition, editor Gail Chasan)

 Hiring Patrick Shaughnessy to landscape her new inn was strictly a business arrangement. Until April Ross got to know the war-scarred single father…and his irrepressible little girl. Patrick made it clear he wasn’t looking for romance. Neither was April. But could she make him see that some risks were worth taking?

The lively, widowed blonde might be the most tempting woman Patrick had ever known, but the returning vet knew a happy ending wasn’t in the cards. Still, that was before April started working her magic on his daughter…and on him. Maybe this Christmas was a time for new beginnings—if Patrick had the courage to go with the powerful feelings April had awakened in him….

Karen is also inducted into RWA’s Hall of Fame for her third RITA win!

Short Contemporary Series Romance Winner – Sarah Morgan, A Night of No Return (Harlequin Presents, editor Lucy Gilmour)

Money, charm and sensual skills don’t make up for a heart colder than ice…

Wild parties, wanton women, relentless work—nothing helps tycoon Lucas Jackson escape his dark and haunting past. Arriving at his rural castle in a snarling snowstorm, he craves only complete isolation.… But it seems oblivion can take an unexpected and highly intoxicating form!

Personally delivering the vital file left on her boss’s desk, secretary Emma Gray starts to seriously regret her dutiful overtime mission. She never expected the dark side of the usually controlled Lucas could generate such a primitive, powerful—and entirely inappropriate—reaction.

Way to go Karen and Sarah!

If you missed either of these fantastic books, they are both still available in print at or in ebook at your favorite ebook store.
