Episode 60 - Devil May Care by Elizabeth Peters

Welcome to spooky season, where we get ghosts in our brains that make us incapable of remembering the name of the book or half of the characters!  OooooooOOOOOoooo spooooky!  We love Halloween here at Bodice Tipplers so we decided to give you not one but two Halloween books - the first is Devil May Care  by Elizabeth Peters.  The second you'll have to wait to find out about - expect it at the end of the month. Ellie is a young... what does she do again?  Anyway a young lady engaged to a twit who housesits for her aunt.  The aunt is eccentric!  Donald is the neighbor's son.  Some ghosts appear by various means and occupations.   THE DEVIL IS THE DEVIL. I cannot stress enough how surprised I was by this - the actual devil makes an appearance in this book .  Yes, that is a spoiler.  Don't worry, I already told everybody I know.  THE DEVIL.  Ol' Splitfoot!  Lucifer!  The Adversary!  So, implied is that it has the kind of witchcraft that most of the modern witches I know wou

Episode 35: The Bride


Jamie is fiery!  She has a horse named Wildfire that she likes to ride bareback!  She is beloved by all and has zero flaws except... a terrible sense of direction!

Alec is... large!  And rude!  

And none of these people know a damn thing about medieval Scotland!  You got it, it's Julie Garwood's The Bride!



The Bride (Lairds' Fiancées, #1)
Did I mention NO RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE HERE?  None.  Not one goddamned bit.  All Julie Garwood knows about Scotland she learned from Brigadoon and she ain't afraid to show it!  This  cover is... honestly about right.  I have NOTES about all the kilts in this book.

This book features some pretty serious ravishing, in which the woman clearly says no but enjoys the sex that follows.  It's clearly presented in a fantasy setting and she really enjoys it, which puts it apart from books like The Flame and the Flower and, god Fanta-C was so weird.  It won't bother some people because of that context, but it is still definitely nonconsensual.

Note: wasn't Fanta-C our episode 35?  Yes, it was!  But we changed it!  We released that one on YouTube first since we Zoomed it, and we wanted to give people time to see it there, but then we needed to release this one because seriously it's been months.... anyway we didn't want you to miss Fanta-C if you only get stuff through your subscriptions so we'll make it Episode 35.

Annnd you'll note on this episode we finally got to our special shoutout for our personal favorite Patreons (you're all our favorite Patreons but come ON, these guys are great!) the Loyal Nine Navy.  So fun that Intern Wallace did a graphic just for them!
