The ladies of the podcast are thrilled to welcome historical romance novelist Meredith Duran to the Darkcast this week! Her newest book, The Sins of Lord Lockwood, features a missing-presumed-dead lord who returns to discover that his onetime bride is…not so excited to see him. What happens from there, you’ll have to listen to find out!

Since Lockwood bring an end to Meredith’s “Rules for the Reckless” series, Abby, Kate and Lauren were inspired to talk about endings this week–how does an author decide to end a series, or a favorite character, and what kind of input do editors have into that decision? Plus, our game this week is “Guess the scandalous fake death”!

Even if you’re just beginning your podcast journey with us, we hope you’ll remember that…the best conversations happen after dark!
