Welcome! Here are your fuzzy slippers and hot chocolate--or champagne as you prefer. This is a long form podcast for people who love reading or listening to Regency, Victorian and Georgian Romance novels. Episode running time varies, but is typically 45 minutes and up. Each episode features a free, deluxe length, high quality audio book sample from a Historical Romance novel (some of them steamy) followed by an interview with the author--all hosted by Historical Romance author, Tessa Candle.


Be warned: some of the audio book content might be steamy, and because of that, there may occasionally be some naughty words or adult themes in the interviews. But overall the interviews are intended to be fun, good-humored and engaging chit-chat between friends--and just like when you are talking with your friends, sometimes you laugh and share encouragement or heart-warming funny stories, and sometimes you talk about deeper things. We sometimes focus on the books and writing process, but other times we take a deep dive into the secret lives of authors. There is a lot of great content in that mix, and I hope you join us!

    Mild Content warning for this episode.


    We speak briefly about the issue of consent in sex scenes, which we both think is important. Although I refer somewhat lightly to past eras when consent was (to put it mildly) not a revered part of the romance genre, I would like to assure you that I am not in the least glib about the topic. But if you are highly sensitive, maybe turn down the volume for that part (from about 30:20 to 31:37).♥ OK, that’s all the serious stuff. :)

    Description:


    When the beautiful Lady Isabella Scranford finds herself in the family way and her lover refuses to do the honorable thing, she knows her life is at an end. With a reputation for being a cold-hearted bitch, there will be no sympathy for her, only shame and ridicule. Finding that even her best - and only - friend refuses to be associated with her any longer, Isabella decides she cannot go on and makes a fateful decision. 


    Henry Barbour is known locally as the Bear of Barcham Wood. Living alone in the vast and decaying splendor of Barcham Place, surrounded by wilderness and woodland, he inspires such tales of madness that no one locally will go near the once grand house.  


    When a filthy and frightening man rescues Isabella from drowning, she begins to believe her fate has taken an even darker turn. Yet appearances can be deceptive, and an unlikely bond is created between two damaged souls who need to hide from the world.  


    As Isabella comes to understand the meaning of compassion, she begins to realize the most important things in life are not at all what she expected them to be.


     


    Flaming June listed in the top 20 from over 6000 entrants in the AMAZON UK Kindle Storyteller Awards 2018 "Romance Reads You Can't Miss".


    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This story blew me away. I have never gone back and bought a book I've read through the Unlimited program before. My reading material is vast, from politics to history to mysteries to Booker Man and Novel Prize books and the classics, and in between it all I read romance novels. I've read thousands in my lifetime and this was a wonderful and simply remarkable book.” ~ Amazon customer review






    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This book had all the components of a fantastic read. Imperfect people which made them perfect characters. Great storyline, details flushed out. No loose ends which I highly appreciate. A complete book with a worthy epilogue.” ~ Amazon customer review


    **** Warning: This book contains a careful selection of quiet determination, resolute tight-lipped-ness and (almost) insurmountable levels of tension. Although coupled with the presence of occasionally descriptive sexual encounters, we are very pleased to highlight that this book - and series - is in no way verging on erotica. ****

    Description:


    A Bespectacled Bluestocking, A Clueless Rake and a mad dash to Gretna Green


    Miss Emily Goodnight – who cannot see a thing without her blasted spectacles – is raising the art of meddling to new heights. Why leave her future in the hands of fate when she’s perfectly capable of managing it herself?


    The Earl of Blakely, London’s most unattainable bachelor, finds Miss Goodnight’s schemes nearly as intriguing as the curves hidden beneath her frumpy gowns. Secure in his independence, he's focussed on one thing only: evading this father's manipulating ways.


    Hell’s Bell Indeed – What with all the cheating at parlor games, trysts in dark closets, and cases of mistaken identity, complications arise. Because fate has limits. And when it comes to love and the secrets of the past, there’s only so much twisting one English Miss can get away with…


    Hell’s Bell is the third book in the Devil’s Debutantes Series but can also be read as a standalone novel. It has been nominated for Best Historical Short Novel as a finalist in RWA's Distinguished 2019 Rita © Awards.
