  16. Happy New Year to you, Kim! As for my fave historical in 2014 there were so many I cannot name just one. But I am just finishing up an anthology that I have enjoyed tremendously...every single one of the seven Regency romances in this anthology have been superb, and that's saying a lot! Thanks for the interesting question. BTW, I'm so glad you've shared your list of favorites...there were two that I did not have and I went promptly to Amazon and got them! I sure do trust your judgment. And thanks for the introduction to Darlene Marshall! jdh2690@gmail.com

  17. Great picks, at least I have added a few of them to my TBR list. I read a lot of sci-fi/fantasy this year and am really feeling like a good HR. Christmas time does that to me. :) I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas!!
