Happy Christmas Eve everyone!  With all the lovely gift-giving going on today and tomorrow, I think it is the perfect time to announce some lucky winners!

I’m so thankful to Andreea Catana for her lovely visit to Austenesque Reviews!  It was so much fun to learn about her introduction to and first impressions of Jane Austen, Elizabeth Bennet, and Pride and Prejudice. We wish Andreea all the best with her release of Meant to Be!

Also I’d like to say thank you to Maria Grace for her lovely visit to this blog!  I’m so excited to learn about these new Christmas novellas and I loved the charming excerpt Maria shared from Darcy and Elizabeth: Christmas 1811.  Congrats again, to Maria, for her double release of Darcy and Elizabeth: Christmas 1811 and From Admiration to Love!
