Whilecan be considered art in and of itself, sometimes you’re just not in the mood to flaunt the bodice-ripping paperback you’re 300 pages into to all your fellow train commuters. After all, half the fun of romance novels is that they’re a ~personal~ pleasure. Well, good news for you, because Audible has just made it so much easier to enjoy romance novels via a brand spankin’ new Romance Package.
I know, who even knew that romance novels were also audiobooks, right? But they are, and they get even better treatment than regs books on Audible too, because there’s a “Take Me to the Good Parts” function that lets you jump ahead to the most exciting parts. There’s also an exclusive “Steaminess Score” which is an algorithm developed by data scientists rating the steaminess factor of each book. No longer will you waste hours investing in what looks to be a “throw-me-on-the-bed” story, only to realize it’s more of a “lots-0f-tension-at-the-grocery-store” plot 75% of the way through.
The Romance Package also makes it super easy to browse selections. You can go by category (sports romances to period pieces), character type (alphas, immortals, royals, etc), and story theme (mistaken identity, love triangle, and secret relationships).
And obviously the romance package features truly fantasy-worthy narrators. Audible says celebrity narrators like Blair Underwood, Dermot Mulroney, and Jesse Metcalfe are among the new voices featured in the Romance Package…swoon.
The Audible Romance package is $14.95/month, after a one-month free trial. If you already have an Audible membership or Kindle Unlimited membership, pricing is just $6.95/month after a one-month free trial. You get major bang for your buck too: there are thousands of romance audiobooks and they add more bestsellers, new titles, and Audible Originals all the time.
