The winner will be named on Monday, March 7th 2011 at a champagne reception at The Royal Horseguards, Whitehall Place London, apparently.

The winner is usually announced at the RNA's annual lunch, so we'll see what happens. I enjoyed The Legacy by Katherine Webb, not read any of the others yet.

What a fabulous list of books. I've just finished The Way To A Woman's Heart and loved it.

I do hope I can make the Awards Lunch next year.

It isn't a Lunch next year, but a Champagne Reception with canap├ęs.

Agree that it is a fabulous spread of books.

I've read a couple and have just downloaded The Legacy onto my iPod!
