ROMANCE

 

ALL AT SEA

by Cheyenne Blue

An enthralling, opposites-attract lesbian romance about what lies beneath.

Stevie Sterling is having a day from hell. Snubbed—yet again—by her unsupportive parents, she runs out on their posh party and takes refuge on a deserted yacht. Waking the next day with the world’s worst hangover, Stevie finds herself far from shore.

As if being trapped on the yacht in only her party dress isn’t bad enough, Stevie’s frantic that she’ll miss the first day of her new job as a nurse. She has so much to prove in her career—to herself and her parents.

The yacht’s cute but unimpressed captain, Kaz Malone—an eco-warrior who hits the seas with Sinbad the cat—is on a mission: There’s a nuclear-waste-dumping tanker to harass.

Kaz is as single-minded as she is stubborn and she’s not about to turn around for some stowaway with a new job. Hell, no. Saving the planet comes first.

But perhaps there’s more than one way to a destination?

 

REVOLVING DOORS

by Helen Macpherson

Businesswoman Rhiannon Sharp is at the top of her game. After years spent crossing the globe, she returns Sydney. Though professionally feted, a key part of her personal life is missing. World-renowned concert pianist Angela Drayton is on an extended sabbatical with her son, wondering how her life is so full and yet strangely empty. A 20-year school reunion is the perfect opportunity for both to gain answers to questions so long left unanswered. But will they? Can they pick up from where they never really managed to start?

 

DARE TO LOVE

by A.L. Brooks

A slow-burn lesbian romance about leaving the past behind and opening your heart to new possibilities.

Investment banker Ash Taylor left her cut-throat world to set up a cool, cutting-edge tattoo studio. Her love life’s been a lot bumpier, though. Ever since a heart-breaking affair with a straight colleague, she’s vowed to steer clear of women unsure of their sexuality.

Talent-agency executive Carmen Lyttleton is straight, career focused, and not prone to distraction from her occasional casual relationships. When her best friend gets a tattoo at Ash’s studio, Carmen finds herself unexpectedly impressed by Ash and her business.

When they accidentally meet again, Carmen is shocked by the sparks between them and the realization that she feels a lot more than just admiration for Ash’s work ethic. It can’t possibly mean what it seems…can it?

The pull between the women is powerful but so are their fears, old baggage, and stubbornness. Can they dare to love?
