This week we host the Romance Writers’ Round Table with Bronwyn Stuart, Trish Morey and Victoria Purman.
We gathered around a candlelit table next to a crackling fireplace as we overlooked an Adelaide sunset in the warmth of The Scenic Hotel at Norton Summit.
And the conversation got warmer still.
We untangle the mysteries of romance and romance writing and understand why more men should read the genre.
The mood inspires Steve to create a special romance edition introduction to the show.
In IS IT NEWS, Nigel tests us on the theme, Romance.
Max Martin notes: “Exercise will certainly increase creativity for writing, and if more motivation is needed, it also increases libido!”
Our SA Drinks of the week are a Sav Blanc & a Pinot Noir from Anderson Hill Vineyard at Lenswood.
George Inglis reflects on writing and its underestimated value to society.
In music, we hear Ben Ford-Davies return with a beautiful love song.
In the Adelaide Visa Council, Damo gets a serving.
But first, David Washington from In Daily presents his midweek news wrap, Talk Of The Town.
More details and timecodes below.

|00:19:06||Romance Writers’ Round Table
Victoria Purman, Trish Morey and Bronwyn Stuart are all locally-based romance authors well known and loved by fans around the world.
Trish Morey: Two new releases. In November is my latest Harlequin, Shackled to the Sheikh. And in December, it’s contemporary romance, Cherry Season. A story set in the glorious Adelaide Hills, about Dan, a serious orchardist in need of a suitable wife, and Lucy, the backpacking cherry picker who’s not looking to settle down.
Bronwyn Stuart: You write gritty historical romance with a bit more of a modern style, so people don’t need dictionaries to get into the era. Your heroes are titled, but the heroine of yours that I have met is the daughter of a pirate in The Road To Ruin.
Victoria Purman: An award-nominated, multi-published Australian romance author writing emotional, funny and sexy books featuring hot Australian men! Think sun, hot summers, board shorts, surfing and happy ever afters from locations as diverse as small coastal towns to Australia’s biggest city, Sydney. Her latest book is Only We Know and her latest novella is The Rebel.
