    Episode 125: Medieval Midwifery - "The Secret" By Julie Garwood

    Episode 125: Medieval Midwifery - "The Secret" By Julie Garwood

    Secrets, secrets are no fun. But THE Secret? By Julie Garwood? Well…
    Judith leaves her dysfunctional behind in England to use her DIY doula skills to help her friend deliver a baby in the highlands. You know what they have in the highlands, don’t you? That’s right - HIGHLANDERS. Big, hunky, aloof-yet-communicative, laird-y ones named Ian.
    Does the context a book was published in really matter? Is the appeal of highlanders just innocent plaid fun? Did you know Ian is Gaelic for John?

    Whoa!nus: True Crime - UNAUTHORIZED AUTOBIOGRAPHY feat. Danielle Steel

    Whoa!mance is once again donning their trench coats and magnifying glasses to bring you the only romance novel-specific crime conversations on the web. This time around, Morgan takes Isabeau on a journey to one of the dreariest corners - FAMILY COURT - via one of the most sparkling highways - CELEBRITY.
    Danielle Steel.......'s husband sued two writers from People Magazine to keep adoption records sealed, and a book off the shelves in the process, and lost. But that particular champagne problem seems to have aged into a Wonder Bread problem while we were all signing up for the pre-Metaverse.
    What responsibility do we have to our inspirations, particularly when they can't collect alimony? What makes a celebrity? Does it matter when we've all got the same amount of public information? Who owns your earrings?
    A warning shot on data and privacy comin' at ya from 1993.

    Episode 124: Werewolf Baseball - "Mating the Huntress" by Talia Hibbert

    Episode 124: Werewolf Baseball - "Mating the Huntress" by Talia Hibbert

    Baby, yr grls are HOWLING for (and about) "Mating the Huntress" by Talia Hibbert this Halloween.
    Chastity feels anything but chaste around local werewolf/fated mate/homeschooled-only-child Luke. The only problem? She comes from a family of huntresses--as in werewolf huntresses!
    What's Halloween's whole deal? Are white people really ignorant about race, or is it just all getting channeled into metaphor? Are you cosplaying The Midwest right now?
    We'd ask if Talia Hibbert is John Williams, but we already know the answer--and soon you will, too! TuuUUuune in, if you daaaare.

    Episode 123: Tasty Squeeze - A Man of Taste by Shira Glassman

    This week yr girls are keeping it short’n’sweet as carrots with A MAN OF TASTE by SHIRA GLASSMAN. Milly the Vampire decides to treat herself and make herself a snack of a snack (wink). Little does she know she just found the everlasting gobstopper of boyfriends/dinners.
    Can women consume anything without it being a moral conundrum? Is camp essential to vampire horror? Why is romance so good at genre mashing?
    Lick. It. Up.

Vampire vs Brain in a Robot Body & other controversies

While I’d fight to the non-death that being immortal as a vampire is better than being a brain in a robot body, because I dig the whole embodied thing, I otherwise enjoy the hosts playful yet earnest discussions of romance. I was getting crispy from all the grim news, and finding then digging into the backlist of Learning the Tropes has given me much needed & appreciated joyful solace.
