Happy Holidays! Even though this year looks quite different from a typical holiday season, some things remain the same. Carols on the radio, sparkly lights around the neighborhood, holiday cards, a craving for cookies, and our annual Historical Romance Cookie Exchange Hop!


Thirty historical romance authors are sharing a favorite cookie/dessert recipe with you and a fun fact or tid bit about the holiday season. So hop from site to site to see what we’ve found while researching our historical books and choose some new cookie recipes to try.


Hop to all the sites for a chance to win a $150 gift card to the online store of your choice! Imagine how many books you could buy! Dukes, Highlanders, Pirates, and Warriors, OH MY!


That is another thing that has not changed – Books! When life is uncertain and full of stress, take a break and dive into a past world with thrilling adventures and golden-hearted heroes. With romance, you are guaranteed a happily-ever-after!


Here are the simple directions for the hop:


  1. Hop to each link (posted on 12/4), which will take you to a historical author’s FB page, web site, or blog. While you’re there please like, follow, or sign up for a newsletter if you wish to stay up to date on our new releases and author happenings.


  1. Learn a fun historical fact and discover a new cookie recipe on each site.


  1. Collect all the names of the cookies, paired with the names of the authors, and e-mail the total list to Make sure to put Historical Romance Authors Are Sweet in the subject line. The list must be turned in by 11:59 PM ET on December 12th. 


  1. One grand prize winner, of a $150 gift card, will be selected randomly from those who collected and turned in the name of all the treats by the deadline. The winner must respond within 24 hours to claim the prize, and we will announce the winner hopefully by noon ET on December 13th.

About the Author


Hello everyone! I am Jessica A Clements and I write historical romances set during the US Civil War and the Regency Eras. When I am not writing I am playing with my son, composing music, playing in a band, and working my day job. 


One of the many things my son and I love to do is travel to new historical places. We have been to: Custer's Battlefield, Saint Augustine, Savannah, and a couple of smaller battlefields in Alabama. We hope to be able to add to our list soon.
