H&H Debriefing: Gothic Heroes!

Another day, another way to follow H&H—we're now on YouTube! Subscribe to the HeroesnHearts channel to catch weekly Debriefings in which Team H&H's Heather, Megan, and Jenn discuss what's hot in romance.

In this week's episode, we tackle Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Heroes Are My Weakness, which Megan is reading now and for which H&H has a sexy excerpt here, with a guest post from SEP herself to come on Monday. Then the convo turns to our general love of Gothic romances and their delicously brooding heroes.

Missed last week's? Catch up on our chat about identifying as romance fans here; we'd love to hear your experiences too!

*Note: For some reason Heather says our SEP excerpt is from Chapter 3 but she's crazy so just ignore that; it's a selected scene from later on in the book.
