Get Ready: The 12 (Historical) Days of Christmas are Almost HERE!

Happy Holidays, Book Lovers!!!
Here's hoping the weeks leading up to Christmas are as stress-free as possible. Did you dig that ugly Christmas sweater out of your closet yet? (No?) Decorate the inside and outside of your house? (You haven't done that either?) Done all your Christmas shopping? (...oh my...)

In the midst of the mayhem of long lines, wrestling with other shoppers for the last can of cranberry sauce, or bypassing it all and doing your last minute shopping online, make sure you stop by here and Not Another Romance Blog this month starting on the 12th for an exciting dual Christmas event that we're co-hosting!
 Details below:

Rita from Not Another Romance Blog and myself have teamed up this year to present the readers/lovers of historical romance with a unique and fun Christmas blog event that will seriously knock your socks off!

24 participating authors will be writing a special scene featuring 1 of the 12 days of Christmas themes (which were given a historical twist). Authors are paired up, given the same theme to work with for the same day and then each will put their own unique spin on it. Each blogs will feature an author who wrote for that day's theme and readers can then comment on the posts with their commentary and also be entered to win any giveaways going on that day as well as be entered for the grand prize.

What's the grand prize? At the end of the event, 1 lucky reader will win a big pot of bookliciousness! A super basket filled with goodies, swag, and books will be waiting underneath 1 lucky readers Christmas tree this year! More details on that the closer we get to the event, but the winner for the Grand Prize will be selected from all the comments on both blogs during the event period. So every day you stop by and comment on a scene on either blog will count as an entry towards the Grand Prize.

Everyone has grown up listening to the classic song "The Twelve Days of Christmas", but join us as we take the song and put a historical twist on it for our participating authors:

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true lord gave to me...
12 Rakes Cavorting
11 Mama's Plotting
10 Scandals Brewing
9 Playful Princes
8 Spinsters singing
7 Spies a lurking
6 Wagers starting
5 Golden rings...stolen by a highwayman
4 Horny Lords
3 French Courtesans
2 Dukes a Dueling
And an Heir stuck up the Christmas Tree

Who's Participating? 
We've got an AMAZING line up of authors who will be participating.  

We can hardly wait to celebrate the season with all you fabulous readers and our amazing authors! This will be an event to remember. Make sure you come back and visit both this blog and Not Another Romance Blog on the 12th for the first round of X-mas scenes and giveaways! Don't forget each post you comment on (up to 1 comment per blog per day) will count as an entry in the Grand Prize as well! Hope to see you guys there!
