Dear Listener: Evening Star, formerly titled Sweet Surrender, first appeared in 1984. I have not rewritten it, but now this novel is where it belongs - it’s the first book in what has become the Star Quartet. In Midnight Star, the first book in the former Star Trilogy, you met Delaney Saxton in San Francisco in 1851. Evening Star features his older brother, Alex Saxton, with Delaney making a cameo appearance.
Giana Van Cleve, the heroine, has fallen in love with a vicious fortune hunter. Her mother, the renowned shipowner and builder Aurora Van Cleve, is desperate to save her daughter. She agrees to support Giana’s wedding if Giana agrees first to spend an unusual three months in Rome with her Uncle Daniele. But Giana’s uncle takes this bargain far beyond what Aurora ever imagined.
Thus, Giana first sees Alex Saxton not in a society drawing room, but in a brothel. The next time she sees him, she is one of the virgins to be sold to the highest bidder at the infamous Roman Flower Auction. He wins the bid and her, but not for long. Four years later, when Alex meets Giana again in London, she has become a woman intent on success in a man’s world. Alex is set on revenge - he will have her and nothing will stop him.
Would you make Giana’s bargain with Daniele? Would you keep the bargain? Agree to be part of the Roman Flower Auction? Let me know - Catherine Coulter

My son Noah set up my account But my name is Robin and I read like crazy, I am either reading a book or listening to one. Audio Addict!
Sexy, romantic, surprising
Pirates by Linda Lael Miller, great story, little different plot, a book i actually read but would love to hear on audio. Warm, romantic and great twist.
When the daughter puts the business men in her place.
When he tells her he loves her, and then tells her hes not going to take her putting him off anymore and takes a stand.
The reader was good, not to overly english and did the other voices well. had funny parts as well as steamy parts, and good plot twist and heart warming characters!
Coulter is fearless and sexy. At first I was worried by the narration, the voices seemed odd but as the story progressed I understood why they were that way and became impressed by the narrator's talent. This is a great book at an outstanding price. I Enjoyed it all the way through. Unique plot, witty humor, and a beautiful romance.
