We’re trying something a bit different this week in this completely unprepared conversational-style episode where we let the discussion take us where it wants to. As a result, we tell you our tips and tricks to finding book recommendations, reminisce about our first intergalactic love and gateway to alien romance and go on a (short) rant about the “shame” attached to romance readers, sometimes even coming from those within our own community.

    Ep.40—The Bridge Kingdom & The Traitor Queen: Betrayal! Betrayal! Delicious Betrayal!

    1:35:46

    Hell hath no fury like a Kingdom scorned? This week on Romancing the Monsters we are once more joined by our friend Gabby to talk about not one, but rather TWO books! Oh yes, we are finally discussing THE BRIDGE KINGDOM and THE TRAITOR QUEEN by Danielle L. Jensen! Lara, born to a king's harem and raised in seclusion in the Maridrinan desert to become the perfect assassin bride, is sent to fulfill a long-standing promise to marry Aren, the Prince (now king) of Ithicana. What he doesn't know, though, is that his perfectly respectable new wife may not be as prim and proper as she seems — her perfectly manicured nails are far sharper than claws and her carefully concealed knives may find their way in unsuspecting victims when he's not watching. Until… love blooms between enemies, truths are unveiled and alliances are questioned. And though Lara is meant to be planning his kingdom's downfall, she is forced to wonder if she's the hero she thought she was...or the villain. Trigger warnings: mentions of death, snakes, betrayal of a loved one, torture, implied sexual assault, weaponry, brainwashing, manipulation, grief, self-loathing, and self-sacrifice Find us: E-mail—romancingthemonsterspodcast@gmail.com Twitter—@theRTMpod Instagram—@romancingthemonsterspodcast TikTok—@Romancingthemonsterspod Find M: Instagram & Twitter—@foesandlovers Find S: Instagram & Twitter—@butthisbook Find Seff: Instagram & Twitter—@prosewithwoes Romancing the Monsters is a podcast that looks at the monster within: the shadow keeping the characters away from true and absolute happiness.

    Ep.39—Again the Magic: Two Hot Men For the Price of One? Lisa Kleypas Understood the Assignment!

    1:10:56

    Somebody fetch our carriage, we are officially journeying to Hampshire and (re)entering the world of Lisa Kleypas’ Wallflowers! First stop? Again the Magic! McKenna, a former stable boy turned millionaire, is back in town to exact revenge on his estranged lover and childhood best friend, Lady Aline, whom he has not seen since the fateful night she rejected him twelve years prior. Alas, both are far from the youths they used to be, with scars deep enough that even love might not be able to heal… but they say revenge is an act of passion and this one is served tall, dark and deliciously cold. Meanwhile, Gideon Shaw, heir to a colossal American fortune, is traveling for business with McKenna bearing demons of his own. That is, until he meets the elusive Lady Olivia, whose kindness and inner-strength may be enough to make even a man like Shaw want to reinvent himself into the man she needs and deserves. Trigger warnings: mentions of societal class, miscarriage, alcoholism, death as a result of a precarious abortion, death of a loved one, burns resulting in severe scarring, emotional manipulation, patriarchy.
