Welcome to the October Romance Catalogue!
Haylee Nash I have so much for you this month that I'm hesitant to start this intro - I want to tell you about each and every amazing book that we have for you in this month's catalogue, but there are simply too many fabulous reads to mention! So I guess you'll just have to scroll through all of them yourself.

I will, however, force myself to choose some of the most stunning highlights out of this ripper month: firstly, there's Nicholas Sparks latest heartbreaker, The Longest Ride (stay tuned for the inevitable movie), then there's the new Colleen McCullough, Bittersweet, (dubbed 'Thornbirds 2') a gorgeous, rambling epic to sink your teeth into. This catalogue also features the start of a new series from Nora Roberts, as well as a new J.D. Robb, and some brilliant 'outdoor romance' (a new term I've created to encompass rural romance, beach lit and African saga) from some bestselling, and debut, authors. And so, so much more!

We've also got a very special offer on right now - if you spend over $15 on romance books in one transaction, you'll receive a FREE copy of Tiffany Reisz's new installment in the devastatingly sexy Original Sinners series, The Mistress! Stocks are limited, so be quick! See below for redemption details.

Oh, and one last thing - for a short time only, we have a free ship offer! Scroll down to the bottom for details on how you can save on shipping for all your favourite romance books.

Happy reading,

Haylee Nash

BOOK OF THE MONTH
Click here for details or to orderOUTBACK DREAMS
by Rachael Johns

 
Since her debut title Jilted  last year, Rachael Johns  has cemented herself in rural romance royalty. Her latest novel, Outback Dreams , proves that Rachael deserves her place. The first book in the Bunyip Bay trilogy, Outback Dreams tells the story of Faith and Monty, best friends since primary school, who are both entering new phases in their life: Monty has finally found the farm of his dreams, and the means with which to buy it, and Faith has decided to shed the shackles of her family duties and chase her dreams. The one obstacle to their plans comes in the form of their distinctly non-platonic feelings towards each other, feelings that neither can admit, nor ignore.

Often in friends-to-lovers stories, the romantic set up all feels a bit too convenient, but Rachael expertly, and believably, describes how the relationship between her hero and heroine evolves. The result is electric - Monty and Faith's chemistry is scaldingly hot, and the reader delights in watching their fraught relationship unfold. Rachael doesn't make it easy for her characters, giving each of them very real impediments to their happy ending, and making Monty act in a way that is seemingly unredeemable, but such is the author's writing prowess that the reader is delivered to a hard-won, and well-deserved, denouement. Aside from a brilliant love story, Outback Dreams has some deftly drawn supporting characters and a very strong sense of place that make this a romance not only worthy or reading, but raving about.

BITTERSWEET
by Colleen McCullough

THE LONGEST RIDE
by Nicholas Sparks
Click here for more details or to order
Bittersweet is an enthralling tale of women - and of love.

This is the story of two sets of twins, Edda and Grace, Tufts and Kitty, who struggle against all the restraints, prohibitions, laws and prejudices of 1920s Australia. Only the submissive yet steely Grace burns for marriage; the sleekly sophisticated Edda burns to be a doctor, the down-to-earth but courageous Tufts burns never to marry, and the too-beautiful, internally scarred Kitty burns for a love free from male ownership.

Turbulent times, terrible torments, but the four magnificent Latimer sisters, each so different, love as women do: with tenderness as well as passion, and with hearts roomy enough to hold their men, their children, their careers and their sisters.

NEW ADULT

Boys you can't take home to mamma
Click here for more details or to order FINDING IT
by Cora Carmack


Sometimes you have to lose yourself to find where you truly belong . . . Most girls would kill to spend months traveling around Europe after college graduation with no responsibility, no parents, and no-limit credit cards. Kelsey Summers is no exception.

She's having the time of her life . . . or that's what she keeps telling herself. It's a lonely business trying to find out who you are, especially when you're afraid you won't like what you discover. No amount of drinking or dancing can chase away Kelsey's loneliness, but maybe Jackson Hunt can.

After a few chance meetings, he convinces her to take a journey of adventure instead of alcohol. With each new city and experience, Kelsey's mind becomes a little clearer and her heart a little less hers. Jackson helps her unravel her own dreams and desires. But the more she learns about herself, the more Kelsey realizes how little she knows about Jackson.

Cara is looking for Danny, too, but not to turn him in. He is her brother, after all, and she's convinced he has a good heart. If she can just find him before the cops do, she'll figure out a way to get him out of this. But Cara didn't more...
