Tuesday Tease: Honor

An essential element of romance.

It might not be obvious, but honor is an essential element of romance.  After all, no one wants to date someone who cheats or is unkind to the less fortunate. What honorable traits do you require in a romantic partner?  Do you yourself brake for squirrels, leave a 20% tip, or give a dollar to the team collecting outside the supermarket?

These TEASE audiobooks showcase personal belief and the ways narrators portray the shared values that can develop through romance.

In THE DUKE OF SIN, MARRYING WINTERBORNE, and THE MCCULLAGH INN IN MAINE, narrators show us the evolution certain characters undergo to achieve moral agreement with their partners.

Romance is a fundamental validation of identity, and what is more basic to identity than personal conviction? As with the best audiobooks, you’ll find a little bit of yourself in each of these compelling listens.
