This post is a little out of the norm for me, but it was a bit of news that came across my feed that I wanted to share. I am a big fan of audiobooks. I commute and it makes life bearable while I navigate the traffic and construction. Most of my audiobook listens tend to be more on the fantasy or non-romance side, but this news was still something I wanted to share.
Audible has a new program available. The Audible Romance Package! The link connected to the banner below only links to the regular package. Amazon didn't have the option available to link me directly to the new package. (What is up with that!?!)
So, what is the Audible Romance Package? The Audible Romance Package allows you consume romance audiobooks at an amazing rate, for one price. You can borrow up to 10 romance books at a time and it appears to have a pretty sufficient selection. You can return them at anytime and then borrow more! Essentially, it is unlimited.
Pricing seems pretty straightforward. If you are an existing Kindle Unlimited, Audible Gold or Audible Platinum member you pay an additional $6.95 per month for the Romance Package. If you are neither of those things, you pay $14.95 per month.
In addition, they have also created the "Steaminess Score", which tells you how steamy each book in the library is. The categories are Sweet, Simmering, Sizzling, Hot Dam and O-O-OMG. (I want to high-five whoever created this scale!) You can also search by new category types, such as "Character Types" or "Story Themes", allowing you to narrow the genre into your preferred sub-genre.

I have been using Audible for years and really enjoy the service, so if you are interested and romance obsessed, you might want to give this a go!
