008 - The Governess Affair
Updated: Mar 19, 2020
This episode we have a couple of firsts! Our first novella! Our first hotel room recording! Join us as we chat about The Governess Affair by Courtney Milan, a novella that, let’s be honest, sets the bar for all novellas. Courtney Milan truly played upon all of our emotions in a short amount of pages. We were brought to our metaphorical knees by a twig! A TWIG! And don’t get us started on hairpins as a currency to build trust. *SWOON!* We’ve got a fantastic heroine on a transformative journey who finds her voice and it’s funny and fierce as hell. Oh, and one of the best marriage proposals (and rejections) ever. **Spoilers. We get into allllll the details!** TW: Rape
Our book recommendation this week from listener Mazey (or @romance.in.the.wild on Instagram) was Dalliances and Devotion by Felicia Grossman.
