Imagine you have a book on your shelf that’s been waiting to be read, but despite your desire to read it, it keeps getting pushed back and back...and back...until it’s been sitting there for years, lonely and ignored. Well, the three of us decided enough is enough! The time for avoidance is over and the time for reading is now! This week on Romancing the Monsters, we’re facing the monster that is our TBR shelf. Whether it's books we're scared will make us emotional, books with too much hype or simply books we're scared might've not aged well, we're about to take a leap and read them anyway! We invite you, our listeners, on this journey, pick a book off your own TBR and read with us!

This monster can be a prejudice, fear, insecurity, trauma and so on. We believe that romance novels are as much about one's personal journey as they are about finding love. After all, love makes us vulnerable and forces us to bare our monsters to another.

Rafe, the arrogant and rash heir to the Bowman fortune, travels to London to meet Lady Natalie, the woman he is supposed to marry. Except… he's way more interested in Hannah, her lady companion.

    Ep. 45—Scandal in Spring: Smell That? That's the Fresh Scent of a Pining Hero!

    1:22:49

    The frosty kiss of Winter is finally being chased away by the warmth of the coming Spring. The first blooms of the season are attracting the promenading Ton outside and one Daisy in particular finds herself in a bit of a situation... Uh-oh, here comes the fifth stop on our Wallflowers journey: Scandal in Spring! Matthew Swift and Daisy Bowman absolutely do not want to marry each other. Or at least...that's what they say. When Daisy's father gives her an ultimatum (to find a man to marry at once or she'll have to marry Matthew) she's appalled at the idea of marrying the scrawny, quiet boy she remembers following her father like a shadow growing up. What she doesn't remember is Matthew growing up into a very handsome man indeed, one who knows exactly how to make her romantic heart beat a little faster. After an encounter with an angry goose, a spectacular tournament of lawn bowling, and a few unfortunate parlor games, one might say that despite Daisy Bowman and Matthew Swift's best efforts to stay away from each other, life just keeps throwing them in the same room. How long can they resist the invisible pull between them? How long before they get themselves into a bit of a scandal? Trigger warning: mentions of pregnancy, miscarriage, and neglectful parenting.

    Bite-Sized, #2: Beginner's Guide to RTM, Thoughts on Illustrated Covers and Some Romancelandia Drama

    51:07

    Ever wondered how this podcast came to be? Yeah, we realized we completely by-passed (more like strongly avoided) the step in creating this podcast where we were supposed to introduce ourselves to our listeners. Oops! Well, better late than never! This week, we're finally telling you all about how our podcast happened, the story behind its name and what we define as "the monster of the story". Of course, it wouldn't be a Bite-Sized episode without us deviating into other topics as well, so we also discuss illustrated covers — are they deceiving or not? Do they give readers false expectations? — and some related romancelandia drama. Join us and weigh in on the debate! Trigger warning: mentions of enslavement, death, cancel culture.

    Ep. 43—Devil in Winter: Sebastian St. Vincent. That's It. That's the Tweet.

    1:19:20

    There's a chill in the air, it looks like winter has arrived at last and what better way to keep ourselves warm than with the devilish ways of the infamous Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent. Mmhmm, dear listeners, we've reached the fourth (and long-awaited) stop on our Wallflowers journey: Devil in Winter! Evie Jenner is in dire need of a hasty wedding and the protection and freedom provided by a husband. Pressed for time as a result of her father's declining health, she finds herself out of options. Well, there is one option….the biggest, most wicked rake in all of London: Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent. Luckily for her, he, too, desperately needs to marry and he's all too willing to seal the deal (in every way possible). But, can a marriage between such vastly different people survive? Will Sebastian's charming yet scandalous ways irreversibly corrupt Evie's gentle nature, or will her soft and tender influence thaw the heart of this notorious devil? Trigger warning: mentions of abuse, starvation, loss of friendship, death of a parent, death by sickness, and neglectful parenting.
