    Book we spoke about

    Femme Tales by Anne Shade

    Beast: Former hip-hop artist Ebony “The Beast” Trent has wrapped her persona around herself like a protective wall of bitterness. Belinda Jansen is confident, intelligent, sexy, and—to Ebony's fascination—not the least bit intimidated by Ebony’s beastly demeanor. Can Beauty truly tame The Beast?

    Awaken: Local celebrity chef Chayse Carmichael has achieved a level of success she’d only imagined while learning to cook. But when free-spirited Georgia peach Serena Frasier walks into her restaurant, Chayse realizes that success doesn’t always bring happiness if you don’t have someone special to share it with. Does love at first sight truly exist?

    Stiletto: Music mogul Cass Phillips barely has a moment to sleep, let alone build a relationship. But an unexpected encounter with shoe designer Faith Shaw leads her to believe that maybe fairy tales do come true. Can true love really conquer all?

    Six women find themselves in their own real-life fairy tales when true love finds them in the most unexpected ways.

What happened?

I really enjoyed this podcast, but there have not been new episodes in awhile. Wonder what happened?

Great podcast

I think I already support TLR on Patreon, but ran across this actual podcast while I was on Goodreads (trying to offset illegitimate negative reviews of lesfic, which I’ve promised myself to do each week, time permitting). I had stumbled across a review by Tara Scott, I think, of Curious Wine which had a link to an interview with Karin Kallmaker from 2017. 4 years later I found it! And found this podcast, also. I’ve only listened to the one I just mention but have subscribed and fully intend to listen to them all. It was well done and the format seemed well thought out, yet, very relaxed and comfortable to listen to.. I highly recommend listening to them all if you can.
