  1. Eeek, Fredericksburg is only about 2 hours away from me. I wonder if I could make it down there for the book tour.... hrm.

    1. That would be a cool one to go to! Kearsley and Raybourn! I'm a little to far from any of these! Hope you go.

    2. Oops, I forgot to tell you the reason I love historical romance. Until I started book blogging, I didn't really read historical romance. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I love that you have the historical detail along with a generally happy story (you so don't get that always with hist fic).

  2. Mariana is my favorite novel by Susanna Kearsley. All of her novels are wonderful and captivating. thanks. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  3. Historical romance novels allow me to lose my heart to the past...
