There's been a lot of discourse surrounding our latest pick. Everything's Fine by Cecelia Rabess has been fodder for a think piece by The New York Times, an interview in The CUT and hundreds of hot takes on Twitter. Was the book worth all that chatter? Not really. Listen in as we discuss the "controversy" surrounding the book's marketing, what we think the author was trying to achieve and the authenticity of fake hair. We also love it when you rate, review and subscribe to us on iTunes, Google Play, Google Podcasts and Spotify. Special thanks to Suite45 for our theme song, Jones’n. And thanks ..read more

Considering the number of co-hosts who have joined me on this podcast who discovered this series through a bonkers panel hosted by historical romance novelist Sarah MacLean, I had to have her on the podcast. The podcast just wouldn't be complete without it. In this episode, we talk about our very, very French heroine, Marlene, and her shy beau, Zennek. We also discuss the appeal of bonkers books, the future of the Ice Planet tribe and the genius of Ruby Dixon's world-building. This is the last episode for this batch (er, season?) before the podcast goes on hiatus. It's been ..read more

We're going back in time! In this episode, we flashback to the very beginning to see what went down when the Ice Planet's saddest woman and most emotionally intelligent hunter resonated. Author Juno Sunbear declares Ariana the mascot for 2020 (Sad Bitch 2020) and I fawn over how great a job Zolaya does at helping her cope. We're both creeped out by their eerie kid, though. We also talk about what's happening over at the Icehome Village. Do the new arrivals even know the Croatoan Village has indoor plumbing and heated floors? Did they get a choice before being abandoned on that beach? Justice f ..read more

This episode, I'm joined by author Katrina Jackson to discuss Barbarian's Tease, the 15th book in the Ice Planet Barbarians series. And, whew! Brook and Taushen really tested us in this one. They basically that one Katy Perry song. They're also kind of dumb. ? Along with their antics, we discuss whether tails should be a requirement in alien romances, life in the new Icehome tribe and how Brook needs to LEAVE TIFFANY ALONE! Be on the look out for the next episode when I'll talk Barbarian’s Beloved with erotica author Juno Sunbear. This is a repost of episode fifteen of the Ice P ..read more

This episode, I'm joined by Jenny Nordbak from the Wicked Wallflowers Club. She and I discussed Barbarian's Rescue, also known as the one where everything gets blown up! Summer and Warrek are straight up action stars in this book ... and we skimmed all that to talk about the kissing ..read more

The series goes back to its roots in this book, with couples hiding from the tribe and making out in caves. But things get messy (literally!) quickly for Kate and Harrec when the big blue barbarian suffers a serious injury. To complicate matters, our boy can't handle the sight of his own blood. Ellen and Ellen's Mom from the Not Your Mom's Romance Book Club join me to discuss Ice Planet exposure therapy, Harrec's lack of game and whether the sa-khui kiss-and-tell.

This book starts with the hero buying human slaves from intergalactic smugglers. Big yikes! Luckily for us, Ms. Dixon doesn't burden the story with descriptions of horrors and trauma. Instead, we follow our newly resonated couple, Bek and Elly, as they work to trust and understand one another. Jen, from the Twitter account JenReadsRomance, joins me as we discuss Bek's surprising redemption (okay, not that surprising ... it's in the title). Next week, I'll be joined by Ellen and Ellen's Mom from the Not Your Mom's Romance Book Club to discuss Barbarian's Lady. What debauchery have I i ..read more

Things are tough right now. Why not avoid it all by listening to Heaving Bosoms' Melody and I talk about all the alien sex featured in Barbarian's Choice? Our girl, Farli, is all grown up and looking for a resonance mate of her very own. Luckily for her, angsty mechanic Mardok lands on the ice planet. He's big, blue and broody. Even better, he's Farli's resonance mate. Listen in as we answer questions you never had about sa-khui sex, anatomy and birth control. Get ready for next week's episode when Jen of JenReadsRomance and I discuss Bek's big fuck-up in Barbarian's Redemption. This ..read more

Erin, of the Heaving Bosoms podcast, and I discuss the tragic romance of Pashov and Stacey from Barbarian's Heart. She loves him, but he can't remember her. It's my kryptonite, y'all. We follow these two as they road-trip across the ice planet to the tribe's new home and try to repair their broken bond. But he keeps saying the wrong and she won't give the guy a break. In one last ditch effort, Pashov "kidnaps" Stacey (with permission from his chief, of course) and whisks her away to a hunter cave to rekindle their romance. Come back next week when Andrea, of the Shelf Love podcast, and I ..read more
