Sometimes love shows up where you least expect it.

Ashley "Ash" Cooper is still reeling after her recent divorce, throwing all her energy into her job in the city. When she's seated next to one of her mother's friends at a family party, falling in love is the last thing on her mind.

After losing her husband many years ago, Gloria Young rebuilt herself as a single parent. Now that her daughters are both at university, she's perfectly content with her quiet life in the village of Murraywood.

An unexpectedly enjoyable evening with a friend's daughter pushes Gloria into exploring a new side of herself.

Will she overcome her fear of what people think and allow herself a new chance at happiness?

And can Ash let go of the past and open herself up to love again?

Entertaining

Older straight widow and young hip lesbian fall in love. Cute dialog back and forth. Narration was very good but narrator tended to ‘sing-song’ throughout but I don’t think it detracted from the story. I found this story very entertaining and have listened to it more than once. One of my favorites. Highly recommend.

I enjoyed it!

I loved the storyline and found it delightfully daring to have the daughter and the mother's friend fall for each other. Although the two appear to lack build-up of their initial feelings toward one another, I found the build-up to be strong in the actual coming together and expediting all that followed. I want to say I think the narrator's style was unique and I truly enjoyed listening to her, but I admit I felt I was getting a play-by-play of the story and it at times kept me from getting engrossed in the characters the way that I wanted to. I really don't like critiquing narrators because they make their performance seem so simple when in actuality it's quite difficult, and I value their ability to do so. Carmen Rose has a magnificent voice that I enjoy very much, I'm not sure her cadence worked for this particular story. I'd not hesitate to listen to her again, however. Harper Bliss...well...another enjoyable creation.

Another Age-Gap Classic

Gloria is a widower with two college aged daughters and quite content with her life. At her friend Mary’s retirement party she is seated at the singles table next to Mary’s recently divorced daughter Ash Cooper. When Ashley ages her to dance she feels a tingling that lights her up. Falling in love was never in their sights but the heart wants what the heart wants. Erotic romance. Recommend.

Harper Bliss never lets down.

Loved the story, loved the characters, loved the sexy sex scenes... narration took a while to get use to.
Get this book.

Just the “right cup of tea “☺️

How many times can I read a “ Bliss novel” and find new ways of expressing my appreciation for her talents.
This one was a little challenging at first because it was delivered a very strong and proper English style if speaking.
I have listened to Carmen Rose before and while her delivery is spot on, some might feel it a bit challenging. However, given the setting sand the characters, it became a wonderful listening experience.
I was wonder how I would have reacted, had I read the book first before listening to it.
I want to also compliment the author for her brave visit to a venue, clad, and culture that might be foreign to her usual readers.
I will wait a while before listening again, because I am sure that some of the humorous asides went over my head.
Thank you for expanding our listening experience, and introducing us to two women who are not young and have experienced multiple setbacks. And, also their foray into dealing with family and friends as they work their way into having their “ coming out” as a couple viewed by an unsuspecting assortment of friends and family members.
Bravo Harper once again. 👍♥️🎉

Mostly soft porn but does have a plot

The narrator was robotic in phrasing so that was distracting from story. She has a nice accent, but cadence was mechanical. Most sentences also ended in an oddly flat delivery of “so and so said.”
Not my fave in romance genre cuz ‘story’ was fifty percent soft porn aka erotic scenes. Will appeal greatly to some listeners.

Love this book!!! ❤️

A beautiful love story, with memorable chartered. Ash is so vulnerable and strong...can’t help but be engrossed with her. Then Gloria who has endured life’s treacherous curveballs. She is smart, sassy and intriguing. Together they have undeniable chemistry. I kinda want to live in their town!!! The supportive characters were immaculate and well thought out.
Thank you Harper Bliss!!! Very well narrated Carmen Rose 🌹
P.S. I’m in love with Celine Dion as well

Well done

I thought I would have a slight adjustment period to the accent, but I honestly don’t know what I could have been thinking. I’m always a fan of stories about age gaps as I’m someone that has always dated much older than myself.
