BT046. Chachic and April: 100% no cheating

BT046. Chachic and April: 100% no cheating

Guest: Chachic and April | Host: Kat Mayo | Audio producer: Rudi Bremer | Recorded: 19/08/2017 Manila

I’m joined in this episode by two of my partners in #romancelandian (a play on Romancelandia; loosely translated, it means flirty romance), Chachic and April. I caught up with these ladies in Makati and managed to sneak in a chat after we recorded the live readings. They’re huge advocates for romance, both in the Philippines but also internationally through online channels, and I’m so chuffed that we were able to get together in person. April, in particular, had to travel a bit to meet up with us, and ended up stranded in Manila overnight after this interview!

Thanks also to all of you, our listeners, whose reactions to our previous episode have been AMAZING. Audio extracts are something that Rudi and I are looking at doing more of in 2018, so please keep the feedback coming! (Pun only slightly intended.)

Finally, thanks to author Eve Dangerfield for letting us include an extracts from Locked Box. I can’t remember how I stumbled onto this book (probably via Twitter) but the banter between hero and heroine was so delicious, I knew it would be perfect for a reading.

Locked Box by Eve DangerfieldLocked Box by Eve Dangerfield

Amazon | AuthorTwitter

Julia Bennett isn’t having a great day. Funding for her video game is low, her day job is sucking her dry, and to cap it all off she’s locked in a police station with the very handsome, extremely married guy she’s been avoiding at all costs.

Max Connor isn’t having a great year. He’s getting divorced, his best friend is squatting in his house, and his inappropriate crush on the IT girl is getting way out of hand. And that was before he locked the two of them in an evidence room.

Surrounded by three decades’ worth of drugs, guns, and floppy disks, Max and Julia are forced to confront the heat that lies between them with dangerous, funny, and occasionally toe-curlingly sexy results.
