THE SCOTTISH DUKE
Karen Ranney, read by Tim Campbell
Harper Audio

Tim Campbell’s agreeable narration should satisfy a wide audience looking for a tale with both seductive scenes and classic romance. Come for the explicit scenes but stay for a conventional love story reminiscent of Shakespeare’s TAMING OF THE SHREW. Listen to a sound clip and read AudioFile’s audiobook review, HERE.

Tuesday Tease: Holiday with a Twist

What’s Christmas without regret, deception . . . and a pug dog?!

Narrator Samantha Cook’s impressive range of voices and deadpan humor make this one holiday romance you won’t forget.

Shannon Stacey, Read by Samantha Cook
Harlequin Audio

For Leigh Holloway, returning home to Massachusetts for Christmas is epic bad timing. She lost her fiancé, quit her job (working with said fiancé), and now has to fake it for two weeks so her family doesn’t suspect anything. Bartender Croy Dawson sympathizes and wouldn’t mind taking their high school friendship to the next level. Narrator Samantha Cook plays up Leigh’s family antics and gets listeners into the spirit – for Christmas and romance. Listen to a sound clip and read my full review. 

I would definitely listen to more Samantha Cook audiobooks. And not just over the holidays!

Till next Tuesday!

Tuesday Tease: The Consequence of Seduction

Situational humor is an art form in this romance audiobook.

AWARD WINNER

High-quality merriment meets millennial romance, and narrators Amy McFadden and Nick Podehl rise to the challenge of Rachel Van Dyken’s outlandish romantic romp.

THE CONSEQUENCE OF SEDUCTION
Rachel Van Dyken, read by Amy McFadden and Nick Podehl
Brilliance Audio
Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award

While Reid and Jordan pretend romance for a publicity stunt, Reid’s certifiably insane family tortures him with bad advice and yes, yodeling. McFadden and Podehl must have shrugged and said – if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em – because they show complete narrative buy-in to the mayhem. They egg each other on with silly delivery and random off-key singing. In a word: magical.

Listen to a sound clip!
