Episode 47 - Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin

Happy lunar new year!  We rang in the Year of the Ox with Butterfly Swords , which was Jeannie Lin's first book.  It won the Golden Heart Award back in 2009 and started her illustrious career. Ai Li is to be married to the powerful and hawt Li Tao, a scheming jiedushi.  When she discovers his treachery and his murder of her brother she escapes to warn her father, the Tang Emperor.  Except her father isn't really all that fussed about it?  She's helped along the way by Ryam, Noted White Guy.  They travel all around China meeting people and running away from people and hitting people with swords, which is delightful. There's really no content to be concerned about in this book (it's a more recent book!) - if you dig action packed historical romances there won't be anything in here that's an unpleasant surprise.

Episode 16 - "Rogue" - with special guests Textual Tension!


Guess what, y'all?  It's a very special crossover episode!  We got together with the ladies from Textual Tension and all four of us had to read this piece of crap that Fabio "wrote" so we hope you appreciate what we do for you.

So.  This book.  Jesus fuck.  He's named Ryder Remington (yes really) which is kind of all you need to know.  She's masquerading as a tavern wench to investigate a disappearance.  In, get ready, Charleston.  You know we love it when these books go to South Carolina.

Nobody actually gets sexually assaulted in this book but there's a lot of aggressive bullshit, kidnapping, blackmail, ahistorical jabronis, etc.

Because we did this one in two different states the sound quality is a little off.



Did you know that Fabio had a line of clothing sold at, I shit you not, Sam's Club?  HE DID.

Did you know that this already-embarassing book to carry around came with a goddamned centerfold, completely unrelated to its content?

I OWN THIS NOW.  I had to pay money for this.  It's been in my house and my car and my workplace.  Why does he look so awkward?!
Did you know that South Carolina cockroaches are easily the length of your little finger and that they fly, but poorly?  And that that makes it worse?

Keep an eye out for our appearance on the Textual Tension podcast!
