Audible Plus keeps growing and has a lot to offer for former Audible Escape subscribers as well as new listeners!

What is Audible Plus?
Audible Plus is an unlimited audiobook subscription, meaning you can listen to as many of the included Audible books as you like for a flat monthly fee. This is a digital library service, so the audiobooks will be returned once you cancel your subscription. But you can borrow as many as you want while you are subscribed! E.g. all the amazing Romance audiobooks on the list below…
How much does Audible Plus cost?
If you only sign up for Audible Plus, you pay $7.95 per month. However, if you sign up for Audible Premium Plus (the “standard” Audible subscription that gives you a monthly Audible credit), you get access to the entire Audible Plus catalog without paying anything extra. So, for $14.95, you get all that unlimited audiobook goodness and one free audiobook from the entire Audible catalog that’s yours to keep.
How big is the Audible Plus catalog?
Audible Plus includes over 30,000 audiobooks, over 6000 of these are Romance titles. The catalog is constantly changing with new releases and old favorites being added regularly.

If you’re wondering whether Audible Plus is worth it for you as a Romance audiobook listener, I can assure you that the Plus catalog has grown a lot and is now comparable to Audible Escape or the Audible Romance Package.
It includes many excellent Audible Originals, but also favorite backlist listens from popular Romance authors.
Audible is constantly adding more books and right now, the Plus catalog has a bunch of popular and up-and-coming authors that are definitely worth a free trial month** (or a second look if you’re already an Audible subscriber, given that you have free access to the Plus catalog).
