Ada, Mich. (March 31, 2016)—Romantic Times recently announced their 2015 Career Achievement Winners and Reviewers’ Choice Awards, and two Revell authors were selected.

The award ceremony will take place at the RT Booklovers Convention on April 15 in Las Vegas. For a complete list of award winners, please click here.

Irene Hannon is the author of more than fifty contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels. In addition to many other honors, Hannon is a three-time winner of the RITA Award from Romance Writers of America and a member of that organization’s elite Hall of Fame.

Hannon says she is thrilled by this honor. “To be recognized in this way by the premier magazine for lovers of romance fiction is incredible. Winning an award for one book is always exciting, but being acknowledged for my work as a whole is an accolade I cherish. I’m very, very grateful—and honored to join the stellar list of career achievement authors who came before me.”

Jennifer Leep, executive vice president of trade publishing, says of Hannon, “Irene has a remarkable ability to entertain and inspire readers with every novel she writes, and I’m thrilled to see that ability recognized with this award. It’s a testament to the way Irene continues to capture readers’ hearts and an honor that’s so richly deserved.”

Lisa Harris, the author of nearly thirty books, is a Christy Award winner and the winner of the Best Inspirational Suspense Novel for 2011 from Romantic Times.

Vendetta (Revell; ISBN 9780800724177; ebook ISBN 9781493400454; $14.99) is the explosive first book in The Nikki Boyd Files. Harris takes readers on a fast-paced pursuit of justice that will have them holding their breath until the heart-stopping finish.
