Valentine’s Special: Viking Warrior, Unwilling Wife

Hey there, Book Fight fans. We’ve got a special bonus episode for you: a valentine, if you will. We really appreciate how many of you have taken a chance on the show, and become regular listeners, and we wanted to give a little something back. So we read a Harlequin romance novel about Vikings and family trickery and nipple play–lots and lots of nipple play. We hope you enjoy the resulting discussion.


Talking points include: Viking sexual politics, Hagar the Horrible, white supremacy, explanatory dialogue, homemade chocolates, and human slaughter.

We’ll be back on Monday with a regular episode covering a book more in our regular wheelhouse, but in the meantime we hope you enjoy this trip down Ridiculous Lane.

You can stream the episode here:

Or download the mp3 file (right-click, save-as)

Or, as always, you can find us in the iTunes store, where you can subscribe (for free) and make sure you never miss another episode. Also, please visit our sponsor, Powell’s, where you can enjoy online shopping while supporting an actual, brick-and-mortar bookstore.

Thanks for listening, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
