Authors Leslie Hachtel and Nikki Brock teams up to support ProLiteracy by collaborating on a cookbook anthology of beloved family recipes from prominent romance authors.  

Love in the Mix: A Cookbook for Romance Readers features recipes from romance authors like Kristan Higgins, Lorraine Heath, Collette Cameron, J. Kenner, Dee Davis, Sharon Sala, Tracy Brogan, and Lori Wilde. 

Within the pages of Love in the Mix you’ll find recipes from around the world, with anecdotes from the authors about the meaning of the recipe.  

Published by ProLiteracy the cookbook will be available for purchase during ProLiteracy’s Great American Book Sale, September 20-26, 2021. After the sale it will be available on Amazon and other major online book retailers.  

Sale proceeds from Love in the Mix: A Cookbook for Romance Readers will support the mission of ProLiteracy. Additionally, all funds raised during ProLiteracy’s Great American Book Sale will be directed to ProLiteracy grant programs including National Book Fund and Mobile Learning Fund.  

“Nothing is as vital to a successful and enriched life as the ability to read and, as romance writers, no one appreciates this skill more. ProLiteracy has worked for decades to provide the opportunity for people to become literate,” said Authors Leslie Hachtel and Nikki Brock. “We came up with the idea for a Cookbook Anthology to raise money for this valuable pursuit, hoping those who read our books will appreciate some of our history in the kitchen and we look forward to seeing what impact the proceeds of this book will bring.”  

“Romance authors have held ProLiteracy dear for decades, so we are thrilled to be working with Leslie Hachtel and Nikki Brock on this unique and creative Anthology” said Senior Director of Development for ProLiteracy, Lara Pimentel. “Collaborating on this project gets the word out about our mission while raising funds that will have a lasting impact on learners and local literacy programs, at a critical time.”
