Congratulations to all the shortlist nominees and good luck for tomorrow

For the past couple of years I've run a little challenge for people to try and guess who will win - so why should this year be any different.

So pick the winner for each prize - one for the Romantic Novel of the Year and one for the Romance Prize. Post your selections in the comments section before midday (UK time) tomorrow and when I know who has won, I'll give a small prize to whoever got it right.
