We love it when our favourite book people are in town, so when Kate Cuthbert was in Sydney last month, I caught up with her to talk about c*nts and euphemisms, politics in romance fiction, and her PhD research topic (yes, I was that friend). Needless to say, we say all the rude words in this episode, so brace yourself and maybe listen to this one with headphones on!
Are there words you can’t bear to read in romance? Or are there words you wish authors used more? Let us know!
