Lillian Grant's Siren BookStrand release Speak To Me of Abduction recently received an awesome 4.5 stars out of 5 review from BookWenches.
Here's a snippet:
If you are looking for a story featuring a little bit of glamour, a fair share of danger, and love scenes that are hot enough to make you squirm, then I recommend you give Speak to Me of Abduction a shot. Ms. Grant has penned a very readable, enjoyable story here. And if you enjoyed these characters, you’ll be happy to know that Ms. Grant has just released Jonathan’s story. I can’t wait to see what kind of situation he finds himself in next.

Amy T Matthews' End Of The Night Girl was very favourably reviewed by Gillian Dooley on Writer's Radio/Radio Adelaide.
'I can see I'm going to have trouble reining in the superlatives for this review. How can anyone
complain about the state of Australian fiction when novels like Amy Matthews' End of the Night Girl are being written, winning awards and getting published? Let's just hope they're also being bought and read widely, and will find their way onto curricula in universities - because novels like this have limitless capacity for stimulating deep thought and intelligent discussion.
End of the Night Girl is a novel of ideas in the best possible sense. It's a
novel that asks questions it doesn't know how to answer about the most profound issues humans have ever faced.
It's also witty, dry, unsentimental and sharply observed.'
This year, the Romance Writers of Australia (RWA) celebrates it's 20th anniversary. To commemorate this occasion and just to generally party, The RWA held 20 Years of Romance Covers contest.
We're very pleased to announce that two of our members made the top fifteen!
Trish Morey (THE STORM WITHIN, in A Royal Wedding) and Tamara Gill (A Captain's Order, A Duke's Command) will now have to wait until the RWA 20th Annual Conference "From Here to Eternity" to see if they took out the top spot--the best cover of the last 20 years.
We've just recently discovered that Trish's Harlequin Presents title THE HEIR FROM NOWHERE made the #1 position on the Borders Group Series Bestseller List for the week ending June 4th. Can't get much better than that. It's also a USA Today Bestseller as well!
The Heir from Nowhere
‘You don’t know me, but I’m having your baby.’
Dominic Pirelli’s carefully ordered world falls apart when a female stranger phones with staggering news: an IVF mix-up means she is carrying the baby that he and his late wife dreamed of having! Though he distrusts her motives, Dominic is determined to keep waif-like Angelina Cameron close. Taking her to his luxury home, reluctantly the hardened tycoon begins to admire Angie’s strength and gentle beauty as her body swells with the precious life inside her. But when their baby is born, who will have custody of the Pirelli heir?
If you check out the July lists, you'll see Anne Oliver has also featured in the Borders top ten for two weeks running with Harlequin Present Extra release HER NOT-SO-SECRET DIARY.
This is the title that earned a 4.5 star review from RT Book Reviews!
