The Lesbian Review Podcast

10 Best Thawing The Ice Queen Novels

In this podcast Sheena once again has Tara on as a guest and this time they are talking about the 10 Best Thawing The Ice Queen Novels. 

Note: Sheena categorizes it as Thawing The Ice Queen/Taming The Beast because sometimes characters are cold and sometimes characters are just wild but either way when you add just the right woman to the mix they become much more lovable. Because really, all you need is love.

Les Do Books: Wild by Meghan O’Brien (Book Club)

February 24, 2017

Les Do Books

Wild by Meghan O'Brien

Tara talks excitedly with Lise MacTague, author and fellow reviewer at The Lesbian Review, about the book club pick of the month, Wild by Meghan O’Brien. Listen to find out what it’s about, what they loved about it, and what character they hope gets her own book in the future. 

This podcast is seriously full of spoilers, so make sure you read Wild before listening. 

 

From the back of the book: 

The only thing that frightens shapeshifter Selene Rhodes more than the full moon is the idea of falling in love.

Selene Rhodes has lived her whole life with a terrible secret: not only can she take the form of any animal at will, but once a month the full moon transforms her into a fierce wolf-creature without a human conscience. Managing her condition means living by a strict routine, and more importantly, abstaining from intimate relationships with human beings. Selene is convinced that love and friendship can only bring her pain.

Forensic pathologist Eve Thomas is well-acquainted with the pain of romantic love. Swearing off relationships after having her heart broken by a cheating ex, Eve throws herself into her work: catching murderers. When Selene comes to her aid after an attack by a masked man in Golden Gate Park, Eve is shocked by how powerfully she is drawn to her mysterious savior.

Shaken by her own feelings for Eve, Selene is even more terrified to realize she isn’t even close to being the scariest monster stalking San Francisco. There is someone out in the city who is killing for pleasure, and his next target is the one woman he thinks might be able to stop him: Eve.

 

Tara also announces the next book club pick, Blurred Lines by KD Williamson.

The Bureau of Holiday Affairs Synopsis

Executive Robin Preston has dedicated her life to climbing the corporate ladder, using whatever means necessary. In the shark-infested culture at Frost Enterprises, anything goes, and Robin is a master at the game. On the verge of a major promotion, Robin receives a strange visit from Agent Elizabeth Tolson of the Bureau of Holiday Affairs, who informs Robin that, though Robin may be a lost cause, the Bureau has scheduled her for intervention. Robin will receive three visitors in the two weeks before Christmas, who will escort her on visits to her past, present, and future. Robin will be forced to face not only who she’s become, but the parts of herself she left behind, when she was an art major in college and in love with fellow art student Jill Chen, in whom Robin found a kindred spirit—until Jill broke if off with her. In order for Robin to change her ways, she’ll need to reclaim who she was and open her heart again, to a past she thought she left behind. The Bureau clearly has its work cut out for it, but Agent Tolson relishes a challenge, and she’s put together just the team for Robin’s case. They may have to cut a few corners and go outside a few lines, but Agent Tolson has a perfect salvage record and she’s not about to let that change. The question is, will Robin?
