After drawing some more door prizes, it was straight on to the second lot of award announcements. Here they are:

The Favourite Historical Romance of 2011 is Midnight’s Wild Passion by Anna Campbell. Thank you to the sponsors of this award, Rosemary’s Romance Books and Temptation the Romance Bookstore. The award was presented by Rosemary Potter from Rosemary’s Romance Books and accepted by Anna Valdinger from HarperCollins Australia on behalf of Anna Campbell.

Time for us all to enjoy our main course: Eye fillet steak, potato gratin, sautéed mushrooms, Béarnaise sauce OR Corn fed rosemary chicken breast served with risotto cake, steamed asparagus and fine tomato basil sauce with a hint of chilli. I’m sure we will enjoy.

Following main will be our special guest speaker, Paula Roe, so look for the last lot of winner announcements at about 10.00 pm.

    Congratulations to all the fabulously talented winners – sounds like a fun night. And a gastronomic delight. I’m busily writing down the names of those books I haven’t read so I can buy them. Fortunately, so far, there’s only two.
