The Romantic Book of the Year Award, affectionately known as the RUBY, is the Romance Writers of Australia’s premier award celebrating the best romantic fiction from Australian and NZ authors, across four categories.
This year, Booktopia has the honour of announcing the FINALISTS! Scroll down to discover the 2017 finalists in each category.
The winners will be announced at the Romance Writer’s of Australia conference in August. Held in Brisbane this year, we can’t help but agree that the theme LOVE GONE WILD is a perfect fit. To find out more about the theme, registration, classes, and the wonderful parties you can attend, click here.
