Today I’m chatting with Trisha Brown and Jess Pryde from BookRiot’s When in Romance podcast. We’re going Full Meta over here: we discuss podcasting on a podcast, including different show formats, choosing topics, and how their show comes together for each episode. We talk about covering news and online conversations in romance, and about recommending books (or not) to a broad audience whose tastes you don’t always know. There’s always something to talk about in romance.
CW/TW – We also discuss the tricky parts of recommending older romances to a broader audience, and how nostalgia influences our memories of books. In that section, we do talk about the prevalence of rape in some classic historicals.
Here are the books we discuss in this podcast:

This week’s episode is brought to you by Dating by the Book by Mary Ann Marlowe.
After her fiancée left her at the altar, romance author and bookstore owner Maddie Hanson swore off men…until an influential blogger going by the name of Silver Fox leaves a scathing review of her latest book and accuses Maddie of not knowing anything about passion. Desperate to prove him wrong, Maddie decides to pursue not one but three handsome men in her store’s book club.
There’s the failed rock musician, the college professor, and her childhood friend whom she blames for single handedly wrecking her wedding. Even Silver Fox is getting in on the action, sending Maddie alarmingly—and intoxicatingly—flirtatious emails. And that’s not all. Her ex wants her back.
Now Maddie is about to discover that like any good story, life has twists and turns, and love can happen when you least expect it—with the person you least expect…
Mary Ann Marlowe puts a modern spin on beloved classics like The Shop Around the Corner and You’ve Got Mail with a sparkling tale of romantic fiction full of flirty fun and rom-com action for fans of Jasmine Guillory’s The Wedding Date and Sally Thone’s The Hating Game.
