Smart Podcast, Trashy Books: 387. Comfort Food Romantic Comedy: A Conversation with Jill Shalvis

A new grandbaby, horrific winters with nine-plus feet of snow, and BOOKS! Recorded in late 2019, Jill Shalvis and I talk about new titles that were about to come out – which are totally out now, so you can grab whatever sounds like your reading catnip. We also talk about her career, beginning with writing category romances, writing single title and now women’s fiction – and how to define the combined elements of a genre. I almost titled this episode “Family is Where You Make It,” because we talk about that, too.

Shelf Love: Penny Reid On The Hades/Persephone Myth and A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Penny Reid (Knitting in the City Series, Winston Brothers) and I discuss A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. It’s a dark fairy tale that blends Beauty and the Beast, the Hades/Persephone myth, and the Hunger Games. In addition to asking the deep existential questions – At what cost freedom? Freedom at what cost?! – we talk about how your first love isn’t always your last love, YA, and how there’s strength in being a marshmallow. Penny will be back in a future episode to discuss her new publishing venture, Smarty Pants Romance.

Tea and Strumpets Podcast
Tea & Strumpets: 019 – Pennyroyal 6 – How the Marquess Was Won

What do you get when you combine an icy marquess and a plucky school teacher? Why a marvelous tale from Pennyroyal Green of course! This week not only do we get delicious dialog and a cat straight out of Greek mythology, we also get a feel-good tale of two who were meant to be. However, we do need to get through a few tropes to find our happily ever after but it’s not too much trouble as our hero and heroine draw us along as much as they are drawn to each other. Come and read “How the Marquess was Won” by Julie Anne Long **don’t be fooled, there are spoilers**
