The annual NJRW “Put Your Heart in a Book” Conference is less than a month away! To help share our excitement, we’ll shine the spotlight on one of our Golden Leaf finalists each day until the conference.
The Golden Leaf is awarded annually for excellence in romance fiction by authors who are NJRW members or in Romance Writers of America (RWA) Region One. Winners will be announced during the NJRW Put Your Heart in a Book Conference held October 18-19, 2013.
Spotlight on Contemporary Series: “Secrets of a Shy Socialite,” by Wendy S. Marcus (Harlequin)
“Then you came along and gave me two beautiful daughters who each share a part of us,” Justin told Jena. “Never have I wanted to do the right thing as much as I do now. You’re my chance, Jena.” He took her hands in both of his. “To prove I’m a better man than my dad. To prove I’m worthy of being a husband and father. That I’m capable of taking care of a family the right way. The way I’d promised my Grandma Abbie I would. The way you and the girls deserve. Let me. Give me that chance. Marry me.”
Good luck to Wendy and all our Golden Leaf finalists!
