Hello, friends!

Welcome to the Historical Authors Trick-or-Treat Hop, where you can hop to all the various author sites, collect the yummy candy from each author, and enter to win a $150 gift card!

For those of you who don’t know me, I am the author of the best-selling Regency Rogues series, THE RAKEHELL OF ROTH and THE BEAST OF BESWICK, the Daring Dukes series, THE PRINCESS STAKES and RULES FOR HEIRESSES, as well as the co-author of the steamy historical romance series: the LORDS OF ESSEX and the TARTANS & TITANS series.

I’m also the author of several young adult books, including the #1 bestseller BLOODSPELL and the IPPY award winning BLOODCRAFT in my witch/vampire series; WATERFELLOCEANBORN, and SEAMONSTER in my twist-on-mermaids series; THE ALMOST GIRL and THE FALLEN PRINCE in my parallel universe science fiction series; and the Spring 2014 Kids’ Indie Next Pick ALPHA GODDESS and DARK GODDESS in my Hindu mythology series.

So onto HOP goodies!! Now, I love all the candy. I have so many favorites, but I wanted to showcase one that wasn’t typical. Since I was born in Trinidad, I’m going to share a Trinidadian candy that I grew up with. It’s called Tunnock’s milk chocolate coated CARAMEL wafer biscuit. A mouthful, but a yummy mouthful!! It’s so good, layers of caramel goodness with thin wafers and all covered in chocolate. I’ve only ever seen it for sale in Queens, New York, but I think you can get it on Amazon, so let me know if you’ve ever tried it! For the hop, you can just write CARAMEL.

While you’re here with me, be sure to enter the personal contest I’m hosting below for a chance to win a $20 Amazon gift card. Happy Halloween, my friends!

Contest is international (you must be able to accept an Amazon GC gifted from the US, if not, I am happy to buy you your choice of book(s) from Book Depository in the listed prize amount)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Once you collect all the candy, e-mail your list (Author – Candy) to Heather at Heather@HeatherMcCollum.com by 11:59 PM ET on Sunday, October 31st to be entered into our big giveaway. Put “Historical Romance is Sweet” in the subject line. A random winner will be drawn from those who have completed the hop and turned in their correct lists. The winner will be posted on the Historical Romance Authors Trick-or-Treat Facebook page. The winner will be e-mailed a $150 gift card to the online store of their choice!

    My favorite candy is Salt Water Taffy.My grandmother would take us to the New Jersey shore and we would go straight to the Boardwalk and get our Salt Water Taffy. I loved watching the candy makers in the store window making Salt Water Taffy and Chocolate everything we could imagine. I’m not sure if they do this anymore, I live in New Mexico and we don’t have anything like this here. I still miss it.
