Episode Info

Episode Info: A deluxe sample of The Ice Queen (Duke of Strathmore, Book 7), and interview with Historical Romance author and wrangler of fearsome man-eating house cats, Sasha Cottman. Hosted, edited, etc. by Tessa Candle. Mild Content warning: We speak briefly about the issue of consent in sex scenes, which we both think is important. Although I refer somewhat lightly to past eras when consent was (to put it mildly) not a revered part of the romance genre, I would like to assure you that I am not in the least glib about the topic. But if you are highly sensitive, maybe turn down the volume for that part (from about 30:20 to 31:37).♥ OK, that’s all the serious stuff. :) Book author: Sasha Cottman Book narrator: Janine Haynes Get The Ice Queen on or Audible: Get The Ice Queen on Apple Books Audio: Get The Ice Queen on Kobo Audio: Get The Ice Queen on Nook Audio: Get The Ice Queen on Google Audio: Get The Ice Queen on Get The Ice Queen on Scribd: Description: For Caroline Saunders, beauty is a curse.
