After months of having to hold my tongue, I can finally reveal the launch of Penguin’s digital first Australian romance imprint, Destiny Romance http://www.destinyromance.com/ .You can find fine Australian romance in all genres with many more to come. Including mine! Look out for my debut novel, Princess Avenger, to be launched in October 2012.
First on the launching pad for Destiny are Kelly Hunter, Jennifer St George, Peta Crake and Elise Ackers. In a glittering cocktail party prior to the Romance Writers of Australia conference last weekend on the Gold Coast, Destiny Romance was launched and we heard excerpts from each of the books below read by the authors themselves.
Internationally best-selling author Kelly Hunter has released her delightful rural romance, Wish, with Destiny. Wish is a wonderful, sexy romance that will keep you guessing until the very end. It’s a brilliant collision between two headstrong people, and filled with moments of tenderness that will touch your heart. Keep the tissues on hand.
Jennifer St George is PR queen of Romance Writers Australia and debuts with her contemporary romance, The Convenient Bride. The Convenient Bride is a fabulous romance set in a world of great beauty and luxury, portrayed in picture-perfect detail. Two opposing souls strike up a partnership in a deal that has overlooked one important detail – that it involves a woman who knows her mind and her heart.
Western Australian author Peta Crake has launched her writing career with sexy paranormal romance, Harbinger. Harbinger is a terrific romance laced with humour, danger and adventure. The deeply likeable, unstoppable Ophelia takes us on a quest that puts all the memories she holds dear – and her own heart – at risk.
Talented Melbourne writer Elise Ackers has released her romantic suspense, Small Town Storm, with Destiny. Small Town Storm is a gripping read that captures the intensity and passion of first love and the terror of a town where trust has broken down. This is the unforgettable story of a lifelong romance, and of an innocent childhood tainted by evil that won’t let go.
And if that’s not enough to get you interested, look out for Anne Gracie’s free, short, historical romance coming soon to destinyromance.com .
