Our listeners joined together to nominate those romances released in 2012 that they thought worthy of Best Romance. We timed our choice of the best to correspond with the Audie Awards ceremony and the industry’s choice of the best. Our votes have now been tallied and our listeners have spoken.
Only two of our final six were Audie finalists as well – The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley and The Witness by Nora Roberts.
Our six finalists were:
Jennifer Ashley – The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie Narrated by Angela Dawe
Patricia Briggs – Fair Game Narrated by Holter Graham
Pamela Clare – Extreme Exposure Narrated by Kaleo Griffith
Thea Harrison – Oracle’s Moon Narrated by Sophie Eastlake
Julie James – Something About You Narrated by Karen White
Nora Roberts – The Witness Narrated by Julia Whelan

Congratulations to Tantor Audio as well – all are Tantor titles.
And did you know that all of these winners are also the first book in a series? Entire series that have all been released with the same narrator? And all audiobooks within each series have been well received with very good to excellent reviews. These author/narrator teams have given a tremendous gift to romance listeners multiple times in 2012 and 2013!
