BT062. Readers: I can’t be tamed

BT062. Readers: I can’t be tamed

Guest: Gabby and Rudi Bremer | Host: Kat Mayo | Audio producer: Rudi Bremer | Recorded: 25/03/2018 Sydney

Earlier this year, we featured you, our fellow readers, reading aloud some of your favourite romance scenes. We actually had more than we could use in one episode, so we’re doing a reader redux episode. As usual, we get into a bit of a debate on the merits of The Horse Bronzeman, and Passion. If you have strong opinions either way, feel free to let us know on Twitter using #BTpod!

Around the 13-minute mark, Rudi mentions an Ilona Andrews series that was published ahead of the Hidden Legacy sequels, and we have a short convo about them. It turns out we were talking about different books! I was talking about the Kate Daniels series, but she was talking about the Innkeeper Chronicles. I’m sorry that I IlonaAndrewsplained to Rudi, who is, let’s face it, a veteran fan, whereas I’m still a newbie. (We still manage to make sense, though, which I feel is an accomplishment worthy of praise.)

Shout out to @mutendorf and @herhandsmyhands for their feedback on the podcast. We really appreciate your tweets, FB comments, IG stories, and emails, so please keep them coming!
