Publisher's Summary

While his sins may be his undoing, her love could prove to be the salvation he desperately needs.

The Priest

Bishop Eduardo Soto has devoted his life to the church to pay for mistakes he made long ago. He didn’t expect a second chance in life, but once he meets Chloe, saving her is all he cares about. 

The Dancer

Chloe Thomas dreams of leaving the Bourbon Street stage and owning a respectable business. She’ll do anything to make it happen, including agreeing to a marriage of convenience.

But when she’s offered the opportunity of a lifetime, will she leave her new husband behind after all he’s given up for her?

While Bishop's Desire is part of the Barnes Family Series, it is a stand-alone novel that can be enjoyed without listening to the other audiobooks.

Hot and steamy.

This was my first audiobook by this author. Loved the hot and steamy scenes. Chemistry, story line and angst was all perfect.

Faith and maintaining one's values are work.

So many think to judge others choice's. When keeping their own priorities should be the priority. Cool story well narrated. Very easy listening. Steamy moments just a bit on forbidden side.🤭

Not all that forbidden

Well...it’s not exactly what I was expecting. A reverend pursues a waitress/stripper, and the reverend may or may not be related to a reality show celebrity family. So, the story is a bit far fetched in a few ways. To me, if the storyline requires a hefty dose of belief on my part, I feel the romance should make up the difference. This book did not deliver for me. The romance was muddled and the chemistry wasn’t there. The MCs do not come together until the last 2 hours, and those scenes were sparse and short. It is not a “clean” romance but it’s not steamy either IMO.

I received this audiobook at my request in exchange for an honest review.

Fantastic!!

A non-traditional romance that bloomed between Eduardo and Chloe. They fight the obstacles to their relationship. I voluntarily reviewed this Audiobook.

Great Desire

Really enjoyed this audiobook. This story was well written and had great characters. Eduardo and Chloe chemistry was hot, but a bit taboo. Also loved listening to both Narrators.

Book was ok

Too short for character development .
Loved the male narrator. Not so much the female narrator. She read a bit stiff. Like someone just learning to read.

Great Standalone from a Family Series

This is a great standalone audio from a family series. The characters are all equally interesting and the plot is amazing. Eduardo, a bishop, who dedicated his life to serving the church after an unpleasant situation in the past, meets Chloe, a dancer who wants to turn her life around even if it meant marrying someone she doesn’t love. Great Audio!

Interesting and Drama Filled

Although, this is an interesting and drama-filled story, it also had steamy and sexy scenes which made the listening quite hot. The author really knew how to catch the attention of the listeners.

Competent Audio

This is a very competent audio. It has the best storyline so far. I’ve learned that this is the first book to a series which makes it more interesting. I love the characters and hope to read more about them, too.

Awesome Chemistry Between the Eduardo and Chloe

Eduardo and Chloe were really different but they were a perfect match for each other. This first book in this series is really pleasurable. I had so much fun listening to it.
