The Romance Abroad Bundle by Annie Seaton
Book one in The Affair series! Staid professor Lissy McIntyre believes that choosing a mate should be based on common sense. And Lissy would certainly never pick a rolling stone like Nick Richards for long-term love. But a red-hot, tropical romance? Oh, yeah. He’s got a body made for sinning and his sizzling kisses leave her senseless. But what will happen when she discovers her new neighbor and co-worker is the same man she shared one night of forbidden island pleasure with?
Free-spirited sex therapist Brianna Ballantine has four days to find a fiancé so she can inherit her birth mother’s Italian villa. Commitment is not on the agenda. When finance guru Tomas Richards offers a marriage of convenience to help Brianna secure her inheritance, the sizzle between the sheets promises an affair to remember, despite family complications at every turn. Now Tom must convince her to stay, and make this Italian affair a lifelong commitment.
Jessica Trent needs to land a one-on-one interview with the reclusive Alessandro Ricardo, a man hell-bent on staying out of the limelight. But she wants the ruggedly sexy fisherman taking her to Crocodile Springs—in the Outback--to get it. Alex Richards protects his privacy and his heart in equal measure, but the Yankee bombshell he’s helping cross the Australian wild threatens both. Their attraction ignites, but will his lie destroy them both?

A Travel Romance Must Have.
I received this book for review from the publisher and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.
Please make sure to read the letter from the author. She reminds us that sometimes we forget that authors started out as readers just like us. She also reminds us how diverse other countries are – which is something I tend to forget.
A great book to start this bundle off with is with Holiday Affair. The reader is kept guessing about Lissy and Nick almost to the very end. This is a great lead into the second affair. You will also find that all the Richards’ men are brothers. Got to love a series where family connects the stories.
Italian Affair shows the reader that you don’t necessarily need to know each other a long time in order to fall in love. Sometimes you don’t realize that you’re in love until it’s too late. But our author adds in a couple of twists – you’ll just have to get the bundle, or book, in order to find out what happens when they are revealed. It’s another one that I had a hard time putting down once I got started.
Of the three books, Outback Affair seems to be the funniest. So make sure to pay close attention to the car trip our couple takes. Ending the series on a funny note is perfect. If you need something to make you smile, then make sure to read this one.
If you have never read any of Annie’s books before, why not start with this series. You can read all three of these books on the same day. Or maybe you only have a little time each day in which to read, then you could read the books one at a time. It’s also a great series to read in the wintertime, you’ll be warm in no time.

The men in the Richards family are destined to find love. These three brothers (Nick, Tom and Alex) are sexy, dynamic and stubborn. They are from a close Australian family of Italian extraction who love and support each other. The stories are filled with romance, laughter and drama. Annie Seaton is a remarkable storyteller. Her writing takes you into the heart of this large, caring family. I'm happy that Entangled bundled these stories together so that I could read each brother's story one after the other. I like that her characters are strong, independent and determined to find success and happiness. It is very satisfying to see love find them. Annie Seaton is a great storyteller who pulls you into her stories with great wit. This book went on my keeper shelf.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I initially read book 3- "Outback Affair" first and really liked it. I was happy to be given the opportunity to read the other 2 books as part of this bundle in exchange for an honest review.
The first book "Holiday Affair", was actually the last book I read. I liked the authors sense of humor and it was an easy read but I would have liked a little more time where the couple were together during the book. You really didn't get to see them together as a couple very often. It would have been nice to see them develop as a couple more. Overall, while not my fav of the bundle, it's was a nice afternoon read.
The 2nd book I read was book 2 "Italian Affair". Personally I liked this better than Holiday Affair, but not quite as much as Outback Affair. It seems like with each book the author gets better. Italian Affair follows the marriage of convenience trope in a Mediterranean setting. I thought the author did a good job with it, but I would have liked it to play out a little longer so the declarations weren't so out of the blue.
The 3rd book and my personal fav was Outback Affair. I already have a separate review for that book so I'll just copy it here.
The story follows Jessica Van Lund aka Jessica Trent. She's working in a PR job she hates while writing freelance for Cuisine magazine. She knows there's a full time writing job open at Cuisine and is determined to get it. Her way in is by getting an interview with the elusive Alessandro Ricardo, the financier to the Cockatoo Resort. All she has to do is find him and convince him to talk. Easy right?
Alex Richards left his cushy lawyer job to become a fisherman. He came into some money following tragic events and used it to start the Cockatoo Resort. With the help of his friend Mitch, he's come up with the Alessandro character. While stranded on his way to the resort he runs into Jess. She tells him why she's really there and he decides to keep his friends close, and his enemies closer. Women have gone to insane lengths in the past to interview his alter ego, and he assumes she's just like them. He agrees to help get her to the resort, meanwhile sabotaging her every step of the way.
When I first started reading this I was a little weary of Jess' character. My original thought was "oh no, not another weak female". I liked that the story involved showing that she was so much tougher that either of them thought they were.

This is a bundle you cannot pass up!!! It includes three 5 STAR stories of the Richards brothers. They are each uniquely qualified to melt your panties...
Their stories are all different and unique, just like their personalities. The common trend besides them being brothers, is these stories are witty, sexy and swoon worthy. Annie Seaton has poured LOVE on these pages and you will be booking passage for Australia or Italy looking for more of the Richards clan.
Recommended for a HOT read full of emotion and laughter!

Annie Seaton has given us three lovely stories in this series. Set in beautiful locations with white sands and shimmering waters, each book has a sexy Aussie-Italian man, a feisty lady, passion, some intimate moments, denial, blossoming love and I completely lost myself in the romance of each journey.
Academic Nick is happiest at sea doing his research as opposed to being stuck in library. The eldest Richards brother, he's sexy, stubborn and sticks to the fun elements of being with a lady having had his heart broken. Prof. Lissy McIntyre doesn't believe in love, but returning home with a holiday fling under her belt brings with it some great surprises. I loved them both and the way their lives entwined made for a great read.
Middle brother Tom is a planner in life. He's the sensible one, lives his life by lists and is über organised. Seeking change he uproots to Italy and in transit he meets feisty and clumsy Scot Brianna. Her quirky fun nature may at first irk him but a friendship is formed that leads to more than either bargained on. With superb chemistry this was the most emotional of the three and Tom and Bri my favourite couple.
Alex is the youngest. A rugged bloke's bloke he's all man; outdoorsy, to the point, tough man exterior but underneath is a protective gent who loves his dog. US Journalist Jess is a determined strong lady, but is a bit out of her depth on the trail for her career changing article. She doesn't know he's her subject matter, he needs to keep it from her. Any way he can.
My only disappointment were how rushed Italian Affair's ending was and the epilogue in Outback Affair. Both books deserved that bit more and the final epilogue was short and didn't add any real closure to the series, which considering it's the last book would have ended it perfectly. But these brothers are each wonderful in their own way and I would recommend.
