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 27 - Holiday Outing



Holiday Outing by [Amara, Astrid]
We're continuing our annual tradition of doing a modern gay Hanukkah romance for the holiday!  This time we've got Holiday Outing by Astrid Amara.  This is a sweet little novella about a guy going home for the holidays with the intention of coming out to his parents but getting trapped in a house with way too many aunts and uncles and fucking a gastroenterologist.  Also there's detecting!  And periling!  And art!  Hanukkah Sameach!

There are really no trigger warnings in this book, it's all very sweet and fuzzy except for the tension the main character experiences in his fear of coming out to his family.
