I'm going to show you all the novellas that are finalists in the anthology category for the RITA this year - and you'll see just how tough the competition is! In the past when I've been nominated, I've tried to read all the others, but so far--with this deadline--I just haven't had the time.
“Angel and the Hellraiser” in Demon’s Delight by Vickie Taylor
Penguin Group USA, Berkley Sensation
Cindy Hwang, editor
National bestselling author Vickie Taylor throws a hell-bent man into the arms of a beautiful dark angel who is driven by ethereal desires of her own.
Vickie Taylor wrote her first novel in 1997. Upon completion, she was too chicken to give the manuscript to anyone she knew to read, so she sent her baby off to a few contests to get some anonymous feedback instead. Little did she know how her life was about to change: a few months later, she had won all four of the Romance Writers of America chapter contests she’d entered, was a Golden Heart finalist and had sold the book to Silhouette Intimate Moments!
Since then, Vickie has written numerous romantic suspense novels for Silhouette Books and Berkley Sensation, garnering such recognition as the Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence in Romantic Suspense, a four-and-a-half star “Top Pick” review in Romantic Times, and a coveted RWA Rita nomination for her work.
In 2006, Vickie continues her acclaimed paranormal series featuring Les Gargouillen (the Gargoyles) FLESH AND STONE, the sequel to the smashing debut CARVED IN STONE, to be released in February. The third book in the series, LEGACY OF STONE, will also be released later this year.
Vickie lives in a small town in north Texas dubbed “The Heart of Horse Country” where she rounds out her writing days raising horses, volunteering with the local Humane Society, and serving on a K-9 search and rescue team
