Winners will be announced at the beginning of April. We'll be posting periodic updates on our BLOG this year, so check there for the latest information.

What We're All About

This is not your typical awards site. These awards are geared specifically toward the sub-genres of romance fiction that seem to get lumped together by the bigger award sites. You know what we're talking about -- speculative fiction -- science fiction, fantasy, paranormal and all the sub-categories. They aren't all considered the same here. We know they are very different. So instead, we have categories like "Best Werewolf Romance" and "Best Post-Apocalyptic Romance." You can even suggest new categories if you think we've missed one.


  1. The stories MUST be romance in one of our listed sub-genres with a Happily Ever After (HEA) ending. Sweet or erotic is all right, but it must be romance at heart.
  2. To be eligible, books must have been published between 1/1/07 and 12/31/07 by a legitimate electronic or print publisher. (Self-published works are not eligible.)
  3. Nominations are open until 12/31/07 and anyone can nominate. (Yes, authors, you can nominate yourself, if you wish.)
  4. We will narrow down the list of nominations to a group of Finalists in each category and then voting will commence.
  5. Please read the category descriptions carefully.
