The transcript for Podcast 443. Snowed In Romance Recs with Amanda & Sarah has been posted!
A Treason of Truths by Ada Harper is $1.99! This is a queer, sci-fi romance and the second book in the Whisper series. I think it can be read as a stand alone, but the main characters in this one, I think, were secondary characters in the first book. I mentioned this on a previous Book Beat, where it was described as “Queer Girl Die Hard on a floating city.”
I’ve recently added several paid subscription newsletters to my inbox – which is hilarious because if you told Past Sarah that Present Sarah was going to be paying for more email, she’d have erupted. My inbox used to give me a LOT of stress, but now that I’ve managed it more aggressively, I have time, space, and eagerness for deliberately and carefully reading newsletters from journalists and writers I respect and admire on topics I … Continue reading Newsletters We Love and Recommend
Dalliances & Devotion by Felicia Grossman is $1.99! This is the second book in The Truitts series, and the first is also on sale. Claudia gave this one a B:
Readers who enjoy seeing characters embark on literal and figurative road trips will like this book. As long as they are patient with a few detours, the journey and the destination are worth it.
I am so excited that I get to use words like this: By popular demand! For a limited time! It’s the STAY GOLDEN HORNY GIRL Campaign! In an ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIC (they said modestly) podcast crossover episode, Amanda and I were joined by Melody and Erin from the Heaving Bosoms Podcast. We joined forces to discuss Toxic Desire by Robin Lovett. Listen, this book is NSFW but it is PERFECT for your life, and so was this … Continue reading Stay Golden, Horny Girl!
RECOMMENDED: Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur is $3.99! Though the book copy mentions both Pride & Prejudice and Bridget Jones’s Diary, though our reviewers mention it’s more like the former than the latter. Aarya and Tara reviewed this one together and gave it an A-:
Tara: This book is so freaking cute, it should be illegal. And luckily, Aarya agrees with me, so we’re talking about it together!
This Rec League comes from Leigh. Thanks, Leigh! I recently re-read an old (though a bit dated) favorite of mine, Finding Laura by Kay Hooper, and it reminded me how much I like the “eternal soul mates” trope: love that happens over and over again through time. It’s not time travel, just two souls who keep meeting, falling in love, living lives, then being reincarnated and fated to meet again, over and over. Another example … Continue reading The Rec League: Eternal Soulmates
RECOMMENDED: Ten Things I Hate About the Duke by Loretta Chase is $1.99! Not sure how long this deal will last, but thanks to everyone who let us know about this sale. Catherine loved this one and wrote a Squee review for it:
Ten Things I Hate About The Duke was a joy to read. The humour and banter was delightful, but this was also a book with a lot of heart.
RECOMMENDED: A Phoenix First Must Burn edited by Patrice Caldwell is $2.99! Carrie and Maya did a joint review of this one and gave it an A:
Maya: I loved so many of the stories! One of the standouts for me was “When Life Hands You a Lemon Fruitbomb” by Amerie (yes, that Amerie), which opened up the anthology. It’s a science fiction story with aliens, wormhole travel, and a classic time travel paradox

A Cowboy to Remember by Rebekah Weatherspoon is 99c! Shana reviewed this one and gave it a B:
A Cowboy to Remember was an enjoyable read, but left me with the type of disappointment that only happens when your expectations are very high. Still, this is a low angst, and frequently funny romance that allows readers to get their cowboy fix without traveling to a red state.
