Holiday Break

Holiday greeting card
Loretta & Isabella report:

As mentioned on Friday, we’re taking our annual break from social media to enjoy in-person holiday festivities with our families. We’ll be back on the first Monday of 2016, and we hope you’ll rejoin us as we begin yet another nerdy history year. Thank you for continuing to encourage us!

We wish you the most joyous of holiday seasons and a New Year filled with all kinds of good things, historical and otherwise.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I am glad you are unplugged, but wanted to pass on a late present to Loretta Chase. Today's 12/30 Washington Post had a review by Sarah MacLean about your book Dukes Prefer Blonds. "Loretta Chasse excels at turning romance into deeply felt stories driven by characters whose emotions ring true." I agree.
