Welcome back to Nerdette Book Club! This month, we’re talking to bestselling romance novelist Sarah MacLean about her newest book, Bombshell. For NY romance genre skeptics, take a second before you judge this book by its buxom cover. This romp of a story follows a gang of women who fight the patriarchy in Victorian London. MacLean based these heroines on the Forty Elephants female crime syndicate that lasted from the 19th to the 20th century. And of course, there is a steamy romance.
