    if we can believe that someone who is that fucked up will have a happy ending as functioning or mostly functioning adult.

    Anne Stuart is the queen of achieving this in her Ice series.

    Thanks for including Mistress by Marriage in your discussion. As an author, I guess I tend to be one of those “late” redeemers—the reveal of why the characters acted as they did tends to come at the end…maybe too late for some readers. You’ve given me something to think about…damn it.

    Great podcast!  This is what I’ve known as ‘flangst’ for many years = fluff + angst.  I went and read the Caitlin Crews book as a result and loved it.  I really liked that the guy wasn’t completely recovered at the end.  He clearly does love Tristanne, he’s just still finding out what that is and what it will mean.  I believed in their happy ever after, though I think it will be hard work for them both at the start.  I liked how Crews showed us their love in the time they did spend together.  They both enjoyed each other so much and once he gives himself the freedom to love her, he will.

    The book that really irritated me was Devil’s Bride.  Devil doesn’t say ‘I love you’ to Honoria for about six books, but I don’t think there’s any particular reason for him not to. It just felt like Laurens was eking it out to hang onto her readers.

    And totally on the name changes of HP’s!!!!!!  I buy both and it drives me up the wall when I can’t work out which ones I’ve already read.

    I listened to the podcast last night and really enjoyed it! I did get a litle confused about all the different books you mentioned as there were quite a few. Which is the book where the husband’s wife drugs him with laudanum and inflicts physical pain on him? I can’t remember and I wanted to look that one up.
    Will also get a copy of Seven Nights to Forever as that one does sound great!
    Thanks!!

    Do you think it would be possible to have the books listed in the podcast?  What I mean is like, for instance, Bookrageous (where you were awesome BTW, Sarah), when you listen to the podcast, they have the books listed on the cover art along with the time on the podcast, which is the most perfect thing ever for finding, immediately, what piqued my interest. 

    I LOVE the DBSA podcast.  Love it.  Y’all should have been doing this forever ago.
