The Anthology of Colonial Australian Romance Fiction collects captivating stories of love and passion, longing and regret. In these tales women arriving in the New World make decisions about relationships and marriage, social conventions, finances and career—and even the future of the nation itself. The 'slim and graceful' Australian girl becomes a new character type: independent, self-possessed and full of promise. These stories also show women gaining experience about the world, and the men, around them. They are put to the test by a new life and a new place. And not every relationship works out well. The best of colonial Australian romance fiction is collected in this anthology, from writers such as Ada Cambridge, Rosa Praed, Francis Adams, Henry Lawson, Mura Leigh and many others.

Have you ever loved so much that it hurt? Has love found you even when you didn't go looking for it? Can love be timeless, forgiving and everlasting? An Atlas of Love, edited by celebrated bestselling author Anuja Chauhan, is an anthology of romantic shorts that daringly explores the many guises of romance, from its purest form to its darkest depths. 'Phoenix Mills' takes you through a young man's anguished quest for love; 'Post-Coital Cigarette' makes you flinch at a married man's interpretation of love; and 'Jilted' shows you that love can also be courageous. You will find yourself in the middle of a torrid liaison in 'The Affair', revel in the euphoria of budding romance in 'Just One Glance' and discover what it means to let go of your loved one in 'The Impasse'. Love can also be brutal and unconventional as 'The Unseen Boundaries of Love' and 'Something about Karen' will show you. But most of all, as 'Death of a Widower' and 'Siddharth' show, you will see that love is all about hope and taking the leap of faith. Selected from a nationwide Romance Contest conducted by Rupa Publications, this heart-warming collection of stories urges you to believe that love is eternal...and forever.
