The Romantic Novel of the Year Awards

The Contemporary Romantic Novel Award 2023

In 1973, Stella made a home in a little cottage in Yorkshire. In 2022, Tamzin moves into the cottage and begins to investigate Stella’s past, little suspecting that they share a background of abuse. With help from new friends, Tamzin frees herself from her past and makes a new future.

North Yorkshire author, Jane Lovering, has WON the Contemporary Romantic Novel Award category with her novel, A Cottage Full of Secrets, for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s (RNA) annual Romantic Novel Awards for 2023. The awards celebrate excellence in romantic fiction in all its forms.

Jane, who lives near Kirkbymoorside, has written 25 published novels in various genres and has been published since 2008. Her hobbies are biscuits and trying to remember where she left the car.

She commented, ‘I am delighted, grateful and somewhat over-awed to have won the Contemporary Romantic Novel Award. My huge thanks go out to everyone – the RNA, friends, my publishers and agent – for supporting me and who will now have to put up with my general levels of over-excitement.’
