New Episode! Love's Sweet Arrow Gets HOT as HELL with TSTL

Hi! Becky here and I’m thrilled to introduce a new series of TSTL episodes called HOT as HELL with TSTL! In these episodes, I plan on talking about (and maybe digressing from) all things romance along with some special guests.

 And this inaugural episode is rated… uh… a DIFFERENT kind of family-friendly.

 Mother-daughter duo Roseann and Marissa Backlin join the show to discuss their Kickstarter campaign to open Love’s Sweet Arrow – a romance-only bookstore in the Chicago area.

We also review “Tikka Chance on Me” by Suleikha Snyder ($0.99.)

Listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Play or on SoundCloud.

Things get TABOO AF as actor/writer Daniel Lee joins Becky on a trip to Amish Country to review “A Forbidden Rumspringa” by Keira Andrews ($5). 

Listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Play or below on SoundCloud.

Show Notes:

New Episode! “Priest: A Love Story” with Shauna McGarry and Graham High!


Father, Jesus is gonna have to forgive YOU for your sins! In this ep, Becky forces Shauna McGarry (Bojack Horseman) and Graham High (Studio 54) to compromise their Christian values to discuss the popular erotic romance Priest: A Love Story ($4.99) by Sierra Simone.

Listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Play and SoundCloud.

Show Notes:

For a sexy Sasquatch story, I did find this book on Amazon— Naked Came the Sasquatch ($10.) If anyone reads it, please let me know what you think and if it’s worth the price. And maybe some sort of description of Sasquatch cock.

The Song of Solomon: An Invitation to Intimacy - Douglas Sean O’Donnell explores The Song of Solomon and the practice of sexuality. ($15)

Mere Christianity - “C.S. Lewis explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together.” ($9 on Amazon)

Another amazing romance novel podcast, Heaving Bosoms, also covered Priest with special guest Jenny Nordbak from The Wicked Wallflowers Club. She offers such a great perspective on BDSM and taboo erotica, and I highly recommend listening to this episode.

On top of that, the author of “Priest”, Sierra Simone, was a guest on Jenny’s Wicked Wallflowers podcast. Again, this episode is amazing, and it’s fascinating to hear Sierra Simone’s writing process.

New Episode! Vampire CEO with Meghann Murphy and Matty Smith!


Are you an up-and-coming vampire looking to advance your career? This episode won’t help you with that. But hilarious couple Matty Smith and Meghann Murphy WILL help you decide if the paranormal romance “Vampire CEO” is worth the investment of $4.

Listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Play and SoundCloud.

Vampire CEO is written by Erin Bedford and is currently available on Amazon for $3.99.

Mr. Darcy's Secret Desires with Carla Cackowski


Why Mr. Darcy! It’s a new episode! “Pride and Prejudice” superfan Carla Cackowski joins Becky to discuss “Mr. Darcy’s Secret Desires” by Caitlin Marie Carrington ($3.99). It’s a P & P variation that takes place in Pemberley where Lizzie gets Pember-LAID.

Listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Play, and SoundCloud

I had a great time delving into the world of Pride and Prejudice variations. Here are some links to the books we discussed. Give in to all of your urges of seeing Lizzie and Mr. Darcy GET! IT! ON!

The Darcys: The Ruling Passion by Linda Berdoll ($4.99)

Betrothed to Mr. Darcy by Violet Bedford ($3.99)

The Darcy Saga (5 Book Series) by Sharon Lathan (Some are cheap but others are $10!)

Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James ($9.99)

New Episode! Sarah MacLean Part 2

So excited to share the second part of my interview with Sarah MacLean! (Check out the first part if you haven’t yet!) In this episode, we review the virgin billionaire romance, Loving the Secret Billionaire by Adriana Anders ($2.99). It’s a novella where things get a little ACTIVE, if you know what we mean… like politically. And sexily. But you probably guessed that. Sorry for underestimating your intelligence. And horniness?

Listen on iTunes, SoundCloud, Spotify, Google Play and Stitcher

Links to Things We Discuss:

 Buy Sarah’s book A Rogue by Any Other Name, which will always and forever be $1.99.

Purchase Rogue Desire, which features Adriana Anders’ short story that is the basis for Loving the Secret Billionaire. (It also includes a story by Tamsen Parker, the writer of Craving Flight, which Jennie Pierson and I reviewed!)

AND Ice Planet Barbarians… Wow. I purchased this at The Ripped Bodice in LA, and omg this is definitely the type of bonkers Sarah was talking about. It’s basically Beauty and the Beast (i.e. there’s a kidnapping involved.) However, there’s multiple Beauties and the Beast is a horned alien who loves giving Earth women orgasms. So a quickie review:

 My Tagline: Ice Planet Barbarians… Horny is taken literally.

Thoughts: It’s filthy, disgusting, HAWT, and makes you think a lot of about space and the possibility of intelligent life in the universe.

 Rating: A Horny B plus.

New Episode – Sarah MacLean Part 1 – and Show Notes

Sarah pt 1.png

I can truly say this episode is one to THROBBING re-MEMBER! Acclaimed romance author, Washington Post columnist, and podcast host Sarah MacLean (Love by Numbers, The Rules of Scoundrels, Fated Mates) was a guest on my show! This interview and discussion was so fun and impactful that I decided to break it up into two episodes. In this first one, Sarah and I discuss her career and the history of romance novels. The second episode, which will be released next week, will review “Loving the Secret Billionaire” by Adriana Anders ($2.99).
