Special Edition - The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun

We had the great pleasure of sitting down with Alison Cochrun to talk about her very buzzy book, The Charm Offensive .  If you'd like to purchase a copy, please consider buying from Alison's local independent bookstore, Vintage Books!  At this time there are signed copies available! Dev Deshpande has always believed in fairy tales. So it’s no wonder then that he’s spent his career crafting them on the long-running reality dating show Ever After. As the most successful producer in the franchise’s history, Dev always scripts the perfect love story for his contestants, even as his own love life crashes and burns. But then the show casts disgraced tech wunderkind Charlie Winshaw as its star. Charlie is far from the romantic Prince Charming Ever After expects. He doesn’t believe in true love, and only agreed to the show as a last-ditch effort to rehabilitate his image. In front of the cameras, he’s a stiff, anxious mess with no idea how to date twenty women on national television. B

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!
