Sean: The Handmaid's Tale is academic? I love that one. I'm going to pick a different one ,though, because I didn't do that one during my academic career. I'm going with Coming Through Slaughter by Michael Odaatje

What's your favorite romance book of all time?
Julia: Night Magic by Karen Robards
BA: The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss
Sean: You guys know I'm terrible with favorites! If I absolutely have to go with just one, I'm going to go with Rain and Whiskey by BA

What one book of yours would you recommend to a book club and why?
Julia: Tomb of the God King because it's a historical m/m Cthulhu adventure in first person and book clubs would go, "What the fuck?" 
BA: Say Something because it's the closest to an Oprah book club drama I've ever written
Sean: Bent, the first Hammer novel I wrote.
