Mary Jane Wells bursts onto the scene in Bombshell, the first entry in Sarah Maclean’s newest historical romance series, Hell’s Belles. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss the fun of this romance, and getting to hear the story of the most scandalous of the Talbot sisters, Lady Sesily Talbot. Sesily learns to use her reputation to her advantage when she joins a team of women working in secret to take down society’s worst men. Caleb Calhoun is a handsome and cool-voiced American with a mysterious past who seems immune to her many charms. Wells skillfully amplifies the tension as the two finally give in to long pent-up feelings while Caleb tries to protect Sesily from danger.
