WLW & lesbian historical romance & historical fiction (F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge #6)

lesbian historical romance & historical fiction


Today’s F/F Fiction Crossword Puzzle features a genre that is one of my favorites: WLW & lesbian historical romance & historical fiction. I mean, what’s not to love? Historical fiction allows us to live the past instead of reading dry facts. We get to be swept away to a far-off time and place–may it be the Old West, the Middle Ages, the World Wars, or Regency England. So I hope you’ll enjoy imaginary trips to the past while you attempt to solve this crossword puzzle.
