    School for Dukes - What a Difference a Duke Makes with @bookstakatie

    School for Dukes - What a Difference a Duke Makes with @bookstakatie

    We are attending the School for Dukes and studying “What a Difference a Duke Makes” as our first lesson by Lenora Bell!

    Mari Perkins helped a child cross the street, only to have her trunk snatched, and she arrived late to her appointment for a governess position.  Superior governess and agency owner Mrs. Trilby did not care of her circumstances and threw her out of her establishment.  By chance, another governess stormed into the agency having ran away from unruly twins and Mari saw her chance for a position.

    Edgar Rochester, Duke of Banksford, learned that he was a father just recently, but he was too busy designing and building engines.  He just found out another governess left and Mari showed up and pretending she got her post from the agency.  Having nothing to lose, she made a deal with the duke to prove herself.  Without realizing it, the duke finds himself with a beautiful governess.

    In true Lenora fashion in serving us pop culture, she melded Mary Poppins and Jane Eyre together and gave us a sweet story of found family and love.  And, it true Lit Wallflowers fashion, we reviewed some reviews of this book that we did not agree with.  Join us with Duchess Katie as we discuss tradespeople Mari and Edgar!

    Julia Quinn's Two Dukes of Wyndham with @romantically_swept_away

    Julia Quinn's Two Dukes of Wyndham with @romantically_swept_away

    The Two Dukes of Wyndham series by Julia Quinn was a delight to read one after the other!

    In “The Lost Duke of Wyndham,” highwayman Jack turned out to be the true duke.  His cranky, dowager duchess grandmother just needed proof of legitimacy, but first she needed to catch him.  It was his attachment to Grace, the dowager’s companion, who he would give up the dukedom for.

    In “Mr. Cavendish, I Presume,” the current duke, Thomas,  was potentially going to lose his dukedom and lose Amelia, his long standing fiancée who he finally started having feelings for.

    If you want humor, book one is for you.  If you want angst, book two is for you.  The two books happen concurrently and have a lot of the same dialogue so we suggest reading both.  Join us as we discuss the Two Dukes of Wyndham!

    Bombshell Interview with Sarah MacLean

    Bombshell Interview with Sarah MacLean

    New York Times, Washington Post, and USA Today bestselling romance novelist, romance columnist, and podcaster Sarah MacLean spoke to us!

    This interview was full of spoilers so our fangirl selves including Natalie of @kissandletmetellyou, could ask revealing questions and get the answers that would bring joy to our heart!

    We dive into writing the book and touch upon topics within the genre.  We talk about historical accuracy and she can prove her ideas happened in the past.  And for pervy human history, we can follow Sarah and listen to Jessica Cale’s Dirty, Sexy History podcast!

    We would be remiss if we did not bring up #Munrowatch and Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series.  We even found out about a version of Brazen and the Beast with an edited #IAD reference.

    If you do know designer Christian Siriano, please refer Sarah to him for friendship and a Hell’s Belles fashion line.

    If you know anyone in the film industry, Sarah is ready for a meeting.  The soundtrack has already been made by her and her husband Eric!

    Then we had to play Who’d You Rather and F*ck, Marry, Kill Sarah MacLean and IAD edition.  If biting is your kink, who would you choose?

    We hope we asked a question that scratched an itch.  Join us as we discuss Bombshell with the “gracefully furious” Sarah MacLean!

    P.S. Imogen Loveless’ biggest fan and the other half of Fated Mates, Jen Prokop is taking commissions to edit your book with her fascinating and thoughtful insights!  Check out her www.jenreadsromance.com for contact info!

    All the Duke's Sins - Along Came a Lady interview with Christi Caldwell

    All the Duke's Sins - Along Came a Lady interview with Christi Caldwell

    We want more Christi Caldwell in our lives especially after interviewing her for her new release “Along Came a Lady!”

    Etiquette instructor, Edwina Dalrymple, was hired for a different sort of charge, the adult kind.  She was to turn the Duke of Bentley’s recently known illegitimate son, Rafe Audley, into a gentleman.

    Rafe hated the Duke and was surprised to see a woman turn up this time to bring him to London.  However, he was as determined not to succumb to Edwina’s smiles as she was determined to do whatever it took to get him in front of his father.

    We would do anything for family.  Sometimes it is giving our siblings the opportunity for a better life.  Sometimes it is righting a secret we never knew about.  Sometimes it takes a different perspective to bring a family together by any means possible.  Join us as we discuss how sunshine Edwina and grumpy Rafe got their happily ever after with their respective family and with each other!

    P.S.  “It Had to Be the Duke” is the prequel which we highly recommend to read after book one, and narrator Tim Campbell’s voice via Audible is not to be missed!!

    League of Extraordinary Women - Portrait of a Scotsman with Evie Dunmore and @biologistreadsromance

    League of Extraordinary Women - Portrait of a Scotsman with Evie Dunmore and @biologistreadsromance

    Special guest and author Evie Dunmore has graciously allowed us to fangirl over her and her new release Portrait of a Scotsman!

    Hattie Greenfield went to an invite-only art gallery without her bodyguard and without a chaperone.  The gallery’s owner, Lucien Blackstone, did not know he was trying to be more charitable.  When his art restorer told him a wet woman was there for the tour, he thought it was a tour of his body.

    Hattie finds out the man she kissed and slapped was  Mr. Blackstone himself.  Since then, she tried to avoid her father’s rival.  However, she gets another invite to his gallery as the potential patroness of his non-existent (at the moment) charity.

    As they say, opposites attract and if you do not want to be betrothed to a dark hero make sure the room does not have double-sided windows.  There are two sides to a person and a marriage of inconvenience will definitely bring out both sides to run from or grow with.  Join us as we discuss photographer Hattie and philanthropist Lucien!

    League of Extraordinary Women - A Rogue of One's Own with @biologistreadsromance

    League of Extraordinary Women - A Rogue of One's Own with @biologistreadsromance

    We finally find out how Tristan knows about Lucie’s cat in “A Rogue of One’s Own” by Evie Dunmore!

    Lord Tristan Ballentine was enchanted when he saw Lady Lucinda riding her horse towards him and his hiding place one summer.  He just arrived at her home and did not expect to be slapped on the face for a misunderstanding with his undone breeches.  Then for the next several summers, he would torment her.

    Fifteen years later, Lady Lucie was on the verge of getting majority shares of a publishing company.  What she did not expect was to be equal partners with her nemesis, Tristan, who has his own familial and financial reasons for wanting control of the company.  The only way Tristan would give majority shares to Lucie was to spend one night with him.

    Finally taking a suffragist’s advice to take a lover to destress, Lucie and Tristan spent more than one night together which only deepened their hidden feelings for each other.  Then things got messy when Lucie caught Tristan out with her cousin and supposed fiancée.

    There is nothing we would not do for those we love.  Sometimes we sacrifice for them, sometimes we fight for them, or sometimes we let our guard down.  When we have been pining for someone for a long time, we fight for them.  If we learn we misunderstood them or the situation, we fight for them.  Join us as we discuss shield maiden Lady Lucinda and catnip (to humans and pets) Lord Tristan Ballentine!

Fun!

Found out about this podcast after listening to their Bridgerton podcast. My wife and I listen during our long car rides and laugh along with them. They have great conversations and rapport with each other it’s almost as if they are riding along with us. They make our car rides fun!

Lit podcast!

Wendy and Toni have a great rapport, and I'm especially enjoying their coverage of the Bridgerton book series. As someone who recently flew through the series, it's been a delight to revisit the books through the Lit Wallflower lens. Also, how GREAT is their podcast name??

Jabbrjawz ,

Love these kızlar!

Love tuning into these two while they discuss not just romance and all the things we love about it, but life, Taylor Swift, dizis, and more. 💛
