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 38 - Green Fire by Stephanie James

886298She's a reference librarian, he's an... itinerant writer who freelances stories about Mysteries of the Unknown? ("What happened?!" "Read the book!") He's a stray cat! She... should lock her door! There's an emerald with a life story, there's a jewel caper (sadly mostly off screen), there are pancakes.

For those of you not "in the know", Jayne Ann Krentz (actually Jayne Castle) writes under a ton of pseudonyms and this is one of them.  We wanted to read another one of hers since we HATED Ghost of a Chance. This one does also feature a very alpha dominant male, but other than the Romance Novel Peril and some kind of questionable breaking and entering there's nothing gross in this book.
