You can find them here.

I'm happy to see that I wasn't alone in the books that went on my keeper shelf: I loved The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley, Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas, Bound by Your Touch by Meredith Duran and Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas

All the above comments for me as well.  Also glad to see Carla Kelly get the nod for Marrying the Captain.

LOVED Bound by Your Touch, it was my personal pick for best romance and best historical so I am thrilled to see it getting recognized.

I have not read Sherry Thomas's Not Quite a Husband. I really should! 

Smooth Talking Stranger was my pick for best contemporary, so happy to see it won.

Dark of Night by Suzanne Brockmann was my vote too for best suspense, but I am still surprised to see it won. This book is not a stand-alone read, which means many fans are staying with this series despite so many forum posts around the net that say the contrary. This one upset many fans when the hero didn't end up with the heroine of their choice, but I personally enjoyed how it unfolded.

Branded By Fire for best paranormal sounds right. I haven't read it yet, but I did start the series (I am finishing Caressed by Ice now) and love this author/series so much. This is my current glom.

I voted for DoN, but I admit, more for lack of a better choice than because I thought it was all that great. I don't read all that much romantic suspense and both Karen Rose and Linda Howard (!) had let me down last year.

That's great. I'm tickled pink to see Not Quite a Husband take best historical, not set in the UK. It was my pick for that category as well. And good on Tessa Dare for best debut author. I didn't think a lot of her other books, but Surrender of a Siren was fantastic. I still think Carrie Lofty shows the most promise of the debut authors though.

Ashley! I can't believe you didn't read it. I really liked it. I knew immediately what was wrong with the hero and given my profession, I was very curious to see how the author wrote about it.

I'm not a big historical fan. I always seem to get them from some comment I read and then never read them lol

Dawn, there hasn't been any publicity about it, but someone on the blogs claims that Courtney Milan has confirmed the hero of her debut book is also meant to be an Aspie... I'm getting it soon, am looking forward to checking it out.
