Before I announce the winner of the America's Favorite Historical Couple contest, I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you all the wonderful answers posted to the question - Who is your favorite historical couple?
The couple gaining the most votes - as I expected - was John and Jacqueline Kennedy. They seem to be the darlings of historical couples. The runner up was John and Abigail Adams - of all the Presidential couples they seem to get the most coverage. Other notable couples were: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, George and Martha Washington, and Jefferson and Varena Davis. All very good, and very interesting choices. My personal choice would be James and Dolley Madison.
And the winner of the copy of Marrying Up is...Rhonda! Her nomination was Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Congrats Rhonda and thanks everyone for entering! I have sent out an email to the winner - please respond with your mailing information within 5 days or another winner will be selected.
Don't forget the contest for a grab bag of 3 books by Georgette Heyer is still on until August 18th.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.
