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.

An eclectic mix of characters ~

Audiobooks give me an added ability to enjoy more books when I don't have time to actually sit down and read.

Bishop's Desire was interesting in so many levels. Although we have the steamy story that I love it's so much deeper. Chloe starts off a bit wild with reason, then turns a little less likable to me. But in the end she redeems herself. Bishop has it all. Sexy, smart with wisdom that pulls the strings of my heart. He inherits an eclectic mix of family which just enhances this story. I'll admit this is the first book in the series I've read but it won't be the last. The author offers so much in just this one book, I don't think I could resist learning more about the Barnes family and what comes next.
Note; I have to add the narration was on spot. Sometimes the voice doesn't match my expectations, but I am extremely happy with the choices made here.

Taboo romance. 1POV. HEA. Standalone.

This is s “sizzling” romance novel with a stripper/preacher relationship. The narration is great. This can be read as a standalone novel but it is included in a series.

😐 I gave this book only 4/5 stars bc I feel like there was a missed opportunity with the taboo aspect. Not enough instances when it comes to exploration of the “wrongness” of the relationship. Also, the male character seems to say I Love You with no inner dialogue and seems out of the blue.

Intriguing

A different, intriguing sexy story. The bishop and the stripper. Add the Barnes bunch and it’s more than you can ask for. Eduardo is a sexy pastor. Hot forbidden love story.
