Hope They Come Back!

As a massive and recent fan of the Elizabeth Hoyt’s Maiden Lane series, I was so happy to come across this podcast. They gave great review and insight to the series and I enjoyed listening, even when I didn’t agree with their opinions 😁. However, their last review was book 8 of a 12 book series… so I desperately hope they’ll come back for the back end of the series. Some of my favorite books were at the end of the series! ❤️

Sara’s Regency Romances ,

My favorite Podcast

I am an author of historical romance and I really love this podcast. They do a great job in terms of content, quality, and breath of topics. Highly recommended and totally worth to tune in!

The New Pola ,

Best Historical Romance Podcast

I enjoy listening to these two so much. The structure of their podcast has a little bit of everything: historical fact (which I love), exciting thorough synopsis, awesome discussion and strong opinions. Even if sometimes I don’t agree with what they say I enjoy their perspective and discussion much. Definitely feel the passion for the genre and the books. Plus the author interviews are super entertaining! I have read so many new authors and books because of this podcast and never tire of listening to them!
