DA SBTB Podcast, Episode 37: Holiday Romances

This week: holiday romances! What we don’t like about them (kind of a lot of things) and a few books that we do like. Plus, we attempt to answer the burning question, “How many Christmas brides are there?” Plus Jane tells us about one of her favorite old-style Regency romances.

Here are the books we talk about in this episode:

Holiday Sparks - Shannon StaceyRomancing the Holiday Anthology

Helen Brooks - His Christmas BrideA Curious Courting by Laura Matthews

Blaze Wyndham - Bertice SmallTheresa Romain - Season for Surrender

Cecilia Grant - a Lady AwakenedThe Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming - Lemony Snicket

Brenda Novak - When Snow FallsBrenda Novak - When Lightning StrikesBrenda Novak - When We Touch
