Hi, LaurLa. I see that I have read 4 of the recent past winners! Not bad, huh? And the 2013 one is on my TBR.

You are a much more well-rounded reader than I.... I should make an effort to read some of these this year, since it is my property....

Thanks! I'll probably go with Rock Chick or Wicked Ride -- I've been reading too much crime fiction lately and need an easy romance. :)

I'll probably go with The Mech Who Loved Me
