Lust-Haves Ten Lust-Have Romantic Suspense Novelists


It’s time to reveal the AusRom Today Lust-Have list of Romantic Suspense novelists….

From nail-biting intrigue to edge-of-your-seat drama, simmering sexual chemistry to heroes and heroines who’ll stop at nothing to find and uphold the truth, our selection of ten novelists and novel recommendations should keep you entertained for hours on end!



HYHelene Young
Multi-award winning novelist, former airline captain, and now co-captaining (with her husband) their catamaran Roo Bin Esque around the Coral Sea, Helene Young knows a thing or two about adventure and intrigue. Speaking about her inspiration to start writing, Helene recounts: “I discovered a body washed up on the beach. While there was nothing sinister in that discovery, it planted the seed of an idea for a novel focusing on the terrorist threat to Australia. Working as a captain with Australia’s largest regional airline I fly with crews who have flown for Surveillance Australia – the current Coastwatch contractor. That made it easy to draw on their experiences and weave my characters through a realistic scenario.”

AusRom Today recommends:
Safe Harbour
Helene Young

When Darcy Fletcher drags a handsome sailor from a stricken yacht, she finds herself drawn into his mysterious world.  Having saved his life can she now rescue him from his dark past? Or will that endanger all she holds most dear?

Noah, keeper of the peace and guardian of the Banskia Cove secrets, knows he can’t he tell Darcy the real reason this man has washed up on their shores. If she knew the links between the stranger and her own dysfunctional family, she’d flee the Cove and he’d lose her love forever.

As they take refuge in an old whaling station, only one thing is certain – by morning, no one will be the same again. Lies will surface. Hearts will break, and not all will find safe harbour.

A heart-stopping novel of high drama and desire by Australia’s award-winning master of romantic suspense.



RARachel Amphlett
With a writing style and manner of storytelling that is routinely compared to master novelists such as Robert Ludlum, Sidney Sheldon, Clive Cussler, and Michael Crichton, it’s well within reason to declare Rachel Amphlett as the ‘next big thing’ in the Australian romantic suspense genre. Amphlett’s novels are brimming with suspense, drama, intrigue, and well-researched drama. Swoon-worthy heroes, take-charge heroines, and heart-racing romance are par for the course.

Before Nightfall
Rachel Amphlett

“If they move you, they will kill you.”

Trapped and alone, her only chance of survival lies with the man who trained her: Finn Scott.

As the deadline approaches and the hunt for Kate becomes more desperate, Finn realises that to save her, he must face the demons from his past to secure Kate’s future.

But she doesn’t expect a Jackaroo to saunter into her home late one night, where she holds him at gunpoint. He introduces himself as Ryan Cross, The Farm Sitter, who remains employed by her late grandmother. According to her will, Kate cannot force him to leave, and it is important for her to honour her grandmother’s wishes.

Kate is attracted to the sexy stranger, but suspicion cocoons her. It appears not everyone is willing to admit the truth. Can she trust her confused feelings for Ryan or is he part of the danger?

Guarding Jess
Shannon Curtis

Jessica Pennington’s work as an etiquette coach requires her to be polite and proper at all times, especially now that she has a book coming out. The only thing that rattles her reserve is the increasingly violent emails and texts from her persistent stalker. With the book launch in jeopardy, she reluctantly hires a bodyguard.

Noah Samuels hates stuck-up, prim people like Jessica. He’s more the blunt, straightforward type. But to advance up the ranks at McCormack Security, he has to take the high-profile assignment. After a near miss on his first day on the job, Noah realizes that the stalker isn’t just hype cooked up to sell books—the threat is real.

As the stalker escalates from letters to letter bombs, Noah sees a vulnerable side of Jessica that rouses more than just his protective instincts. But can she let down her guard long enough to trust Noah before it’s too late?
