RITA Wayback Machine: Courtney Milan on Connie Brockway’s My Dearest Enemy

My Dearest Enemy by Connie BrockwayWe’ve asked a few Romance Writers of America RITA winners and nominees to discuss their favorite winners from past RITA awards. The first in the series is Courtney Milan, who was nominated for her novella “This Wicked Gift” in the Heart of Christmas anthology.

Here’s the backstory:

In 1999, when Connie Brockway’s My Dearest Enemy won the RITA for Best Long Historical Romance, we were just discovering the internet, meaning that we were all bidding in online auctions, thinking dot-coms were the businesses of the future, and worrying that Y2K would bring the Apocalypse. The Phantom Menace wouldn’t open until mid-1999—so we didn’t yet realize how much the ’prequels’ stunk, and we were spending our time listening to Limp Bizkit and Eminem.

[Take it away, Courtney!...]
