Dear Listener: Dear Reader: Evening Star, formerly titled Sweet Surrender, first appeared in 1984. I have not rewritten it, but now this novel is where it belongs — it’s the first book in what has become the Star Quartet. In Midnight Star, the first book in the former Star Trilogy, you met Delaney Saxton in San Francisco in 1851. Evening Star features his older brother, Alex Saxton, with Delaney making a cameo appearance. Giana Van Cleve, the heroine, has fallen in love with a vicious fortune hunter. Her mother, the renowned shipowner and builder Aurora Van Cleve, is desperate to save her daughter. She agrees to support Giana’s wedding if Giana agrees first to spend an unusual three months in Rome with her Uncle Daniele. But Giana’s uncle takes this bargain far beyond what Aurora ever imagined. Thus, Giana first sees Alex Saxton not in a society drawing room, but in a brothel. The next time she sees him, she is one of the virgins to be sold to the highest bidder at the infamous Roman Flower Auction. He wins the bid and her, but not for long. Four years later, when Alex meets Giana again in London, she has become a woman intent on success in a man’s world. Alex is set on revenge — he will have her and nothing will stop him. Would you make Giana’s bargain with Daniele? Would you keep the bargain? Agree to be part of the Roman Flower Auction? Let me know— Catherine Coulter Download and start listening now!

    " do not really enjoy these types of books but a trusted friend insisted. better than danielle steel but still a far stretch from my usual literary fiction. overall not that bad and a quick read for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 9/25/2013

    " One of the best books I've read in a long time. Strong characters, and an original story line. Absolutely adored the hero. "

    " A great book to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 7/16/2013

    " Brothels, sexual auctions, sexual submission implied and revenge, are we sure Ms. Coulter isn't a closet BDSM writer? I read these books out of order and they can be. Gina is okay and Alex is a bit odd. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin R | 7/9/2013

    " Well I couldn't put it down. Different from other romantic novels I have read recently. I do like Catherine Coulter's way she spins a story; she keeps you interested. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 5/28/2013

    " i liked the book but it is so like the other books i have read over the years. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pam | 4/10/2013

    " I didn't care for this book. I didn't like the man taking her to a brothel at all to observe!!!!! YUCK! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/26/2012

    " This is my first Catherine Coulter book and what a gem!! This is my kind of book (LOL) I'm hooked and will be reading the entire star series for sure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 9/24/2012

    " This is certainly a competent enough romance, but I didn't really like the beginning -- it's unusual to have a broken *girl* in these books, but I'm not sure I wanted to watch her getting that way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzy | 6/13/2012

    " This is a book I keep thinking about long after I've read it. Catherine Coulter always offers an interesting story! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mrspam4ever | 5/3/2012

    " It was an ok read, but a little of it was too far fetched for me:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 3/19/2012

    " Giana thinks that she knows everything there is to know about being in love--she's wrong. Sold in what was supposed to be a fake auction, she looses her heart to a young man named Alex. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxanne | 1/22/2012

    " So far, erotic and historical. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith | 1/1/2012

    " I have read many romances and this wasn't in the category of the best read, yet it wasn't the worst. It had it's moments toward the beginning of the book, but lost its luster toward the end. I expected more... The motives of the characters didn't really ring clear for me toward the end of the book. "
