Romance Your TBR: An Unhinged Historical Romance PodcastExplicit

by Caroline & Hannah

This is a chaotic historical romance podcast hosted by confirmed spinsters: Caroline @salty_caroline_reads and Hannah @fringebookreviews. To be quite honest, they should not have been trusted with microphones. New episodes drop on Fridays and every other Tuesday. Hannah and Caroline are not responsible for any pants romanced off of your body and/or any addition to that pile of books just chilling by your bed.
