Publisher's Summary

An ex-con reforming his life. A pregnant widow hiding her past. Will the price of her secrets cost her his love?

Catarina Romano has lost everything: her husband, her house, her lifestyle. She flees to her cousin’s empty manor in the heart of Portugal, trying to find peace and to hide from the scandal spun by the media, only to discover she is pregnant.
 

Afonso Cortez is done with all the lies. Fresh out of prison for trusting the wrong person, he’s ready to leave the past behind and look ahead to new opportunities. The remote Sunset Manor, in need of a groundskeeper, is the perfect solution, promising to provide Afonso with the solitude he craves while he restores the grounds to their former glory.
 

Catarina avoids Afonso at first, not wanting to further complicate her life. But Afonso is intriguing, and she feels drawn to him. If only she didn’t feel guilty for all the secrets she’s keeping from him.
 

When suspicious accidents start occurring at the property, Afonso believes his past is catching up with him. Will he be able to protect Catarina or will he lose the woman who might restore his belief in love?
 

The Romano Family series follows the stories of the Romano cousins of northern Portugal as they find love and their happily-ever-afters. Each book may be listened to as a stand-alone.

Wounded widow finds hidden hero

It's a very sweet story, and Afonso is such a wonderful hero. It does move somewhat slowly at times, in the first half, but it's actually more of a relationship development romance so the emphasis is on the building up to their falling in love, which is handled so well. The angst about all the secrets sometimes feels a tad redundant, but the mysteries are all resolved by the rather surprising, exciting conclusion. Afonso & Catarina are a very sympathetic couple, & it's easy to root for their happily-ever-after.

*Clean romance level: passionate kisses

[The narrator does an excellent job with the different voices & accents]

Travel, Mystery, Suspense, Romance

Although always part of the Romano Family series, "Love Me at Sunset" was originally issued as one of the "Mansions" books, the second series in the "Destined for Love" world. In my review I commented that each novel was as individual as the author.

Author Lucinda Whitney is originally from Portugal and sets her delightful stories there. This is the third in her Romano family saga and if you've read other novels in the group you may recognize some characters but this tale stands well on its own. I am reminded of the Mary Stewart books which so cleverly combined romance with suspense in European settings. Beyond simply enjoying a well-told tale I am very much wanting to visit Portugal to explore some of the destinations described. Travel, mystery, suspense, romance--this one has it all!

And now one has the option to LISTEN to the audiobook. Praises to narrator Mary Jane Conlon for troubling to learn Portuguese pronunciation, adding texture and color to an already delightful story.

Clean Romance, well-written

Wonderful clean love story! It is book 3 in a series and I can vouch for the fact that it is a stand-alone, since I haven’t read/listened to the other books and understood everything.

I loved some of the glimpses we got into Portuguese life and traditions!

It was a wonderful escape and I am absolutely going to listen to the others in the series!

Narration: 4 stars: The voice actor has a lovely Portuguese accent. And a deep enough voice that the men in the story sound like men.

A wonderful series

This book is about starting over. Both Catarina and Afonso are trying to rebuild their lives. They find that they are attracted to each other, but they are both wary of trusting those feelings. This is another great installment of the Romano family series. I'm going to look for any more books in this series. I recommend this series, this author, and this narrator.

Good story, wonderful narator

I enjoyed the story itself quite a bit, but the narator did an amazing job with the voices and accents and emotion. I've never listened to a book by either author or narator, and I have nothing but positive to say about them both

incredible sweet romance

An amazing well written clean sweet romance. This engaging storyline is a standalone within a series so we get the bonus of cameo appearances from previous characters. I was hooked from beginning to end with romance, suspense, humor, music, surprises, struggles, mystery, and healing. The characters were wonderful and flawed while they healed themselves together their dark pasts. A truly meaningful and touching ending. I voluntarily listened and reviewed this ARC.$ I loved how appealing it was to easily lose myself in this beautifully narrated story on Audible as the characters are brought to life.
