Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

Up In FlamesGod rest Robin Leach, who brought the show “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” (1984-1995) to television. During the show, Leach’s outsized personality narrated tours of opulent palaces and pads, the likes of which ordinary people couldn’t imagine existed. As a gentle homage, here are a few recent romance audiobooks that mix wealth, fame, and falling in love. Celebrity romances may not last, but these will! As Leach used to say, may you have “champagne wishes and caviar dreams.” 

Heather Graham, read by Tanya Eby
Brilliance Audio

Rock star Jordan Treveryan seeks a reconciliation with his wife and his band as life-and-death threats endanger them all. Narrator Tanya Eby is up to the task of mixing fame, fortune, and romantic suspense in this recent offering from the ever popular Heather Graham. As our reviewer said, “This romantic thriller hits all the right notes.”

A Duke by Default

A DUKE BY DEFAULT: Reluctant Royals Book 2
by Alyssa Cole, read by Karen Chilton

Portia decides to turn over a new “blade” as she accepts a sword-making apprenticeship in Scotland alongside sexy Tavish McKenzie. But Portia didn’t account for romantic tension with Tavish — or expect to accidentally discovering he may be a son of a Duke. Narrator Karen Chilton builds the romance between them with a natural flow and great dialogue. 

Someone to Care

SOMEONE TO CARE: Westcott, Book 4
Mary Balogh, read by Rosalyn Landor
Recorded Books

Viola and Marcel are both aristocrats but they enjoy a vacation from responsibility when they land at the same inn after years apart. Narrator Rosalyn Landor sorts out Balogh’s character lists, and her signature tone makes for a listening experience both familiar and worthwhile.
