Finalists: Jackie Collins Award for Romantic Thrillers 2024

19 April 2024

Congratulations to all the finalists in the Jackie Collins Award for Romantic Thrillers 2024!
For stories featuring a substantial thriller, suspense, mystery or crime story, alongside or fully entwined with a romantic story. The romantic element should still be very strong throughout but the main storyline may be less of a traditional love story. Novels set in any time period can be entered for this category.

Julie Mae Cohen for Bad Men:
The RNA awards are chosen by readers—and readers of romantic novels are among the most faithful, discerning and passionate readers on the planet. So it’s an enormous honour to be shortlisted for an RNA award. It’s even better to be shortlisted for the Jackie Collins Romantic Thriller award—Jackie Collins was a legend and an inspiration who was enormously proud of the entertainment she gave millions of readers.Instagram & Threads: @juliecohenauthor

I am thrilled and excited to be shortlisted. It’s the best feeling ever, and completely made my day. I did a happy dance around my kitchen, grinning like the Cheshire Cat.
