We are just buzzing after an award-winning streak for Escape. Make sure you check out our two award-winning titles, as well as our new titles for September!

  • Lost in Kakadu by Kendall Talbot (R*BY for Best Novel with Romantic Elements)
  • The Chieftain’s Curse by Frances Housden (RWNZ inaugural Koru for Best Long Novel)

And out this month:

Chieftain by Command by Frances Housden: The follow-up to the RITA-nominated, Koru-winning, best-selling title The Chieftain’s Curse. He’s an interloper, granted Chieftain by the King’s command. She belongs to the land and the clan—and their marriage only cements his position. But she’s not about to sit idly by and let him rule her life. The only power she will have is through his love for her—and she’s determined to bring him to his knees.

Deep Diving by Cate Ellink: A sun-soaked, sandy, seaside erotic novel about a tropical paradise, two athletes used to getting physical, and a sex-filled, no-strings holiday fling. He’s a Rugby League player; she’s an Olympic triathlete. A bit of diving, a friendly competition, and sexy, lust-soaked nights. But when it comes time to leave, will they be able to leave each other behind?

Driving in Neutral by Sandra Antonelli: A new, quick-witted, quip-heavy romance for grown-ups from Sandra Antonelli about facing your fears—because love is the greatest risk of all. He’s a claustrophobe, a dynamic manager, and her new boss. She’s a race car driver, a best friend, and deeply burned by love. Fear drives them together—and then apart—and only by overcoming it will they find a chance at forever.

Miss Spelled by Sarah Belle. Magic realism mixes with romantic comedy in this new novel from Sarah Belle about the dangers of internet shopping—and using magic to solve real-world problems. He’s perfect just the way he is, and then he stumbles on the secret she wants to keep buried. She forgets that internet shopping comes with its own brand of risks. Now he has no idea who she is, she has only one chance to get her perfect life back, and she’s only got one week to do it.

Beyond Coincidence by Jacquie Underdown. Mixing romance, history, and a touch of the unexplained in a new novel from Jacquie Underdown about love that needs to cross oceans and time before finding a place to come true. She’s on a French trip of a lifetime when she picks up an unexpected hitch-hiker. He doesn’t understand how she ends up on his doorstep. Together, they have the chance for a love that crosses history, and grants a solider eternal peace.

Haunted Ever After by Juliet Madison. Mixing romance, humour and a sparkle of magic, Juliet Madison is back with a new full-length novel about a bride-to-be, a mystery and the stripper next door. She’s on her hen’s weekend. He’s the stripper her friends have hired. Red is the ghost that won’t leave her alone. Nothing is going to go to plan …
