Paris Ever After by best-selling author K.S.R. Burns is now available in audiobook format!

Produced by Tantor Audio and narrated by the talented Elise Arsenault, the book tells the story of Amy, who sneaks off to Paris for the trip of a lifetime. We initially met Amy in The Paris Effect. The Paris Effect and Paris Ever After can be read/listened to alone or as a set.

Can Amy’s rocky start in Paris turn into a happy ever after? 

Amy didn’t realize how stale her life was until she jetted off to Paris without telling a soul—not even her husband—and had the adventure of a lifetime. Now as she tries to establish herself in the City of Light, she finds that despite a fun (and quirky) group of friends and the ability to indulge in French pastries whenever she wants, reinventing her life is much harder than she imagined.

Then on Amy’s thirtieth birthday, two unexpected visitors leave her wondering if she will soon be saying au revoir to Paris and the new life she’s struggled to build. Her estranged husband, Will, shows up—but is he interested in reconciliation or separation? And a young woman who arrives on Amy’s doorstep unleashes chaos that could push Amy out into the street.

Amid secrets and surprises, set in enchanting gardens, cozy caf├ęs, and glittering Parisian streets, Amy must choose between two very different worlds. And each has a claim on her heart.

As Amy’s Parisian dream starts to fall apart, she must decide: return to the stability of Will and Phoenix (if that’s even still an option) or forge her way forward in Paris?

Letters for Scarlet by best-selling author Julie C. Gardner is now available in audiobook format, thanks to Tantor Audio! The book is read by the award-winning Melissa Moran, who has narrated more than seventy audiobooks.

What would you do if you received a letter from your past self? Sweet Corie and fiery Scarlet were best friends. Inseparable. Sisters of the heart. Until that one life-changing night they both wish they could take back…

Twenty-eight-year old Corie Harper embarks on an emotional journey after receiving a graduation letter she forgot she wrote. Although she spent a decade hiding her secrets, each page reminds her of the friendship she lost with her best friend, Scarlet, when her now-husband, Tucker, got between them.

Scarlet, who hasn’t seen Corie since, blazed her own path and left the past far behind. Or so she thinks. Pregnant with a baby she’s scared to have, Scarlet must decide if she wants to continue alone or find the courage to mend her broken friendship.

Can these former best friends overcome the betrayal that changed their lives?
