Publisher's Summary

Love is a risky venture in Amelia Judd's award-winning romance
"Hello, Pax. It's good to see you again."
And with those frigid words, karma kicked his ass and blew his dreams into a million tiny fragments.
Paxton Bennett walked away from a privileged upbringing to devote his life to La Vida de Ensueño, the socially responsible luxury resort he manages in Costa Rica. No way will Pax let a hotel chain swallow up La Vida and turn it into another lifeless clone. All he needs is a loan so he can match a buy-out offer. Unfortunately, every damn bank keeps saying no. He has one last hope - an on-site visit from a loan officer that he's sure he can impress....
Banker Sage Somerset doesn't want to see Pax Bennett across a busy coffee shop, let alone spend a week at a tropical resort with him. After their cringe-worthy last encounter, just hearing his name makes her blush or curse. Plus, there are snakes in Costa Rica. A lot of snakes! Determined to remain professional on her unwelcome assignment, Sage hopes she can survive a week in Pax's world....
But a quirky staff, meddlesome family, and the night-time visit of a tiny green gecko soon threaten to turn business into pleasure. Will Pax and Sage fight their troublesome chemistry? Or will they take a chance on the biggest venture of all - each other?

Love Rules

A very sweet story of a girl who works for a bank. She runs into a man who was her first love when she was younger. The bank sends her to see if he qualifies for a loan, can she keep her mind on business or will the attraction between them win out? A delicious romance.

Tropical Steam

What made the experience of listening to A Venture of the Heart the most enjoyable?

The story was just the right balance of steam. There was an actual story here. I felt a true pull and desire to see Pax and Sage together. I was really looking forward to them finally finding their hearts.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ok, so he wasn't the main character, but I loved Brick. He just had such genuine heart and he really supported the main characters well.

Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Klett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't believe I have. She was quite good in this one. Never once did I pray she would take a drink soon. So many other (especially the one that reads for Jane Castle) smack from dry mouth and it is such a turn-off. Elizabeth was very good with all the voices and there was a distinct difference. Also, she didn't make all the women sound old or the men rough.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I practically did read it in one sitting. I listened to 2 hours the first day and the remaining 3 hours as soon as I woke up.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to the next book from Amelia Judd.
I received this audiobook for free and voluntarily reviewed it.
