NEWS: Audible Announces New Service — Audible Romance

Audiobook lovers, rejoice! This morning, Audible announced a new subscription service developed specifically for readers who absolutely love romance novels. Audible Romance will present readers with unlimited access to more than 10,000 romance audiobooks, and it features plenty of fun and exciting sub-categories so that you can find your next favorite audiobook with ease.

No matter what type of story you're in the mood for, you can definitely find plenty of options — Audible Romance features 41 clearly-marked micro-categories and 131 story and character tropes. Each title listed has been awarded a Steaminess Score ranging from Sweet all the way up to O-O-OMG. Here's a small sample of some of the categories you will find:

  • Celebrity
  • Gothic
  • Immortals
  • Inspirational
  • Regency
  • Romantic Comedy
  • Small Town
  • Time Travel
  • Victorian
  • And More!

Super-specific categories aren't the only helpful tool for listeners — "Take Me to the Good Part" is a new feature that will transport the listener straight to the next pivotal moment in each story. Expert Audible editors read through many romance novels to identify the 10 most important moments in each story. This data was run through special software, enabling Audible to develop technology that would automatically identify each story's most memorable moments. So if you're dying to know when the characters in your story will finally share their first kiss, you can simply tell Audible Romance "take me to the good part," and you'll find out!

Among the 10,000 titles on offer, you'll find many bestsellers and fan favorites. Nora Roberts, Robyn Carr, Sylvia Day, Debbie Macomber, Kristen Ashley, Heather Graham, J.R. Ward, Jayne Ann Krentz and Lauren Blakely are just a few of many incredible authors whose stories will be available to subscribers.

Audible Romance offers two subscription options  — you can add it to your existing Audible account for $6.95 extra per month, or you may purchase the Audible Romance service on its own for $14.95 per month — sign up here. If you'd like to start a free trial of Audible, you can sign up here.
