Self-aggrandizing post!

There is not much to this post but this:

Trial by Desire made Publishers Weekly‘s list of Best Books. This kind of floors me–I can think of so many other books I would have chosen in my place–but I’m just thrilled to be there.

The other romance books on the list are Meljean Brook’s The Iron Duke (which I adored), Jo Bourne’s The Forbidden Rose (ditto), Eileen Dreyer’s Barely a Lady (haven’t read it, but will have to correct that), and Grace Burrowes’s The Heir (which I don’t think is out yet–but it’s definitely on my list).

I’m so, so honored to find myself on that list–particularly since it includes some of the books that I loved this year.

One last thing: a huge shout-out to my agent, Kristin Nelson. This is the third year running when she’s had an author (and the author of a mass-market title, no less!) land on the list of 100 best books: Sherry Thomas and Gail Carriger in 2008 and 2009. So go over and send her your congratulations on her three-year streak!

Courtney Milan writes historical romances, which might lead people to think that she could be cool. In reality, she's about four different kinds of geeky. At present, this blog is where Courtney applies semi-dormant geek skills to publishing.

  1. Courtney –

    You shouldn’t have been surprised that Trail By Desire
    made Publishers Weekly List – it was fantastic and I stayed up all night to finish it!

    I also wrote Barely a Lady by Eileen Dryer and you really should make a point of picking it up – it was a great read.

  2. I could not be more thrilled! I have to say this is a very well-deserved honor, because TRIAL BY DESIRE really is a terrific book. Not just a terrific romance. Your incandescence is only beginning. Shine on! A million trillion hugs.
