Other Good Cheer
Valerie Bowman received 4 1/2 stars, TOP PICK and KISS Hero from RT BookReviews for Secrets of A Runaway Bride. That list is almost as impressive as Her Grace’s titles.
Ashlyn Macnamara has a gorgeous, and quite distracting, cover for her second book, A Most Devilish Rogue. And what a rogue he is. I must give a little peek. (Hope you don’t mind. I uploaded a bigger version–the better to appreciate his assets. –Ash)
Tracy Brogan hit #1 Bestselling Historical Romance on Amazon and has sold over 50,000 copies of her historical debut, Highland Surrender.
Hold on to your hats, dashing as they are. The Duchesses have an exciting tidbit. Beginning this spring, we will post a new series on Historical Romance For Dummies. Stay posted as we charm the pants off history and reveal details every historical lover should know.
Thank you for celebrating with us. We hope you can stay for a quick chat! ~TTFN
