Welcome, everyone, to the new-look Avon Romance Australia blog – home of feisty heroines, dashing dukes, kick-ass vampires, demons, werewolves and all things paranormal, not to mention bachelor firemen, highland lairds and tough-as-nails Navy SEALs. We’ve got loads of great stuff coming up and we can’t wait to share it all with you! Firstly there’s our competition to become our Guest Reviewer for a whole year – sign up here to win the chance not only to get first look at lots of Avon titles but also to tell everyone what you think.

There will be more competitions, giveaways, book reviews, exclusive sneak peeks at opening chapters of new books and all sorts of saucy gossip and chitchat from our HarperCollins romance fiends. A few members of our team went to the Australian Romance Readers’ Awards dinner last Saturday – click here for photos of everyone in their finery, as well as a summary of the night’s highlights. Then on Sunday we were at Pyrmont Bridge in Sydney for a romance reading flash mob – click here for pictures. Check out our Hot New Releases page to find out all about our latest books, and this month’s Editor’s Pick is a particularly special one.

We’re really looking forward to getting to know all our Australian and New Zealand romance readers, so make sure you sign up and keep checking back – and let us know what you want to hear about from us. Meet our Avon team here. Happy reading!
