Over the summer, The Ripped Bodice announced it was launching an award contest for excellence in romance fiction. There wasn’t a formal submission process and the award relied on a well-informed panel of judges to select the winning books. Winners will received a $1000 cash prize, as well as a $100 donation to a charity of their choice.
Now let’s celebrate the winners of the inaugural contest, nicknamed the RIBBIES:
- Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
- The Austen Playbook by Lucy Parker
- Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole
- Xeni by Rebekah Weatherspoon
