Sweet Savage Flame Podcast Old School Historical Romance Book Review: Defy Not the Heart by Johanna Lindsey

For a while–except for maybe Jude Deveraux–there was no other mass-market romance author in the 1980s to 1990s whose prolific writing achieved such commercial success than Johanna Lindsey. Lindsey reached #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list with Defy Not the Heart.

Here we at Sweet Savage Flame we review Defy Not the Heart, which we happily rate a 5 star read!

Sweet Savage Flame Podcast: Discussing Bodice Rippers #1

In the first episode of my podcast Sweet Savage Flame, the topic is Discussing Bodice Rippers #1, where I talk about the origins of the modern romance genre: the much-maligned bodice ripper. Should we keep those un-politically correct books strictly in the past or take the best of what the genre had to offer to reignite a new movement in romance novels?

Jacqueline Diaz is what I am: a writer. I’m an author of two historical romance works-in-progress,The Savage NobleandWhat She Says With Her Eyes,which will both be released in 2021.

I picked up my first romance at age 12 and never looked back. This thrilling genre has enraptured me and I’ve spent years collecting thousands of paperbacks and e-books until my house was bursting with romance novels and more. Vintage historical romances are my favorites, from epic bodice rippers, family sagas, Zebra romances, Harlequin Historicals, and more. As a reader, I also enjoy space operas, cookbooks, true crime, detective mysteries, philosophy, and history–especially anything to do with Spain and/or the Medieval Ages.
