Passion, Power & Sin, Books 1-5, has just been released in audio format!  Narrated by professional voice artist Karin Allen, this is an especially good deal for Audible members.  The audiobook is unabridged and runs almost 21 hours, yet just counts as one Audible credit.  Also, if you don't have an Audible account, you can listen to the entire series free by signing up for a 30 day trial membership, which can be cancelled any time during the trial period.  This is one of my most popular books, with an average of 4.6 stars on Amazon reviews.

Synopsis:

One spectacular financial scheme. One woman alone against the world. Young, beautiful, and yearning for love, Heather Bancroft meets the "perfect" man...and is lured into a game in which she begins to make more money than she ever imagined. Betrayed by her own innocence, she loses all that is dear to her and discovers that she has been mercilessly used. Defeated and broken, but surviving with sheer persistence and ingenuity, Heather emerges from her trying ordeal, determined to punish the ruthless man who destroyed her life. Her thirst for revenge takes her halfway around the globe, to the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, where her nemesis secludes himself in obscene wealth that he's gained from the financial ruin of others. Heather is playing for the highest stakes in a lethal game. Only one man loves her - he's handsome, confident, and just as determined as she is. Only one man can stop her - a criminal mastermind who is intent on her destruction.
