“Month of Love” romance quiz answers are posted below, as promised. Before scrolling down, allow me to thank all the wonderful people who contributed to the fun of my romance month. I certainly had a marvelous time focusing on one of my favorite subjects!
The winners selected by Rafflecopter and random.org for an eBook copy of Darcy and Elizabeth: A Season of Courtship have been announced on Facebook and contacted by email. Now it is past time for me to post the official notice on my blog.
I must note that one of the winners originally selected was Selena Lopez, but she had already purchased the novel so graciously insisted another name was selected in her stead. How sweet is that?!
And now for the various quiz answers. Links are provided for easy reference.
