AUSTRALIA DAY 2014: Celebrating #OzRomance (Day 5)
This is it!
The final five #OzRomance books in the Australia Day showcase…
It’s Love, Dude
Zane Carlton is a World Champion surfer. Molly Georgiou is a shy, small-town girl. They have nothing in common except an instantaneous attraction and an impossible quest for a rare, endangered Australian marsupial. But Zane is determined to make it work, and invites Molly to take a step into his world. But Molly isn’t ready for the spotlights and attention — she loves her town, its quirks, its characters. Opposites attract, but can two such different people find both a woylie and forever?
A Beautiful Struggle
Katrina Mahoney lives in Sydney’s western suburbs. She has a very full life attending university to study a law degree, training for triathlons and now she is working part time as well. She couldn’t possibly find time for a relationship, especially after her last one ended so catastrophically.
Right now she is content focusing on work, study and training while hanging out with her best friend David Taylor, a womaniser with a heart of gold that would do anything for Katrina – except watch her get hurt again.
That is, until the dashing Elliot Roberts, a junior solicitor from her work, shows an interest in her despite their office’s ‘No Dating’ policy.
Katrina struggles with following her heart or following her mind and has trouble seeing where her heart truly lies.
When Callie Reynolds arrives at Glenmore, the property she’s recently inherited from her late grandmother, the last thing she wants is to be saddled with a warty horse, an injured neighbour and a mad goose. With the death of her sister weighing on her conscience and a fractured relationship with her parents she carries enough on her shoulders. All she wants is freedom.
But Callie hasn’t counted on falling for someone like Matt Hawkins, an ex-soldier determined to fulfil his own dream of land and family, and who won’t take no for an answer. Nor does she realise Glenmore will work its way so deeply under her skin.
As the land, its animals and people capture her heart, and with happiness at last within her reach, Callie faces the most heartbreaking choice of her life. Somehow she must decide what matters most – the past or the future.
A century-old mystery will ultimately reveal the power of forgiveness.
1901: Trapped in a loveless marriage, Isabella Winterbourne struggles with a grief from which she doubts she will ever recover.
2011: Alone and heavy-hearted, Libby Slater has finally come home from her Paris life, not sure what she will find.

A mystery that stretches from one to the other leads Libby to the old diaries of the local lighthouse keeper. The dusty pages help her to unearth Isabella’s legacy and rediscover the importance of family and forgiveness. Both women will find that no matter how dark things seem there is always light somewhere ahead.
