Historical Romance Retreat Wrap Up #HRR2016

HRRLogoLast September, I attend the first Historical Romance Retreat.  As registration for 2017 opened today and tickets are selling fast (I got mine reserved!), I thought I’d finally get these pictures posted.

I didn’t take nearly as many photos as a lot of the attendees at the first annual Historical Romance Retreat.  But I do think I got photos of most of the authors, some of the surroundings and all the goodies that I picked up.
