Fancy some Random Romance in your life? Introducing a brand new collection of romance ebooks including erotic fiction, rural romance, rom-coms and more from Australia's leading authors.
Random Romance, Random House Australia’s digital-first romance list has one guideline – they must be indulgently romantic. There are currently nine different shades of Random Romance and here’s an explanation of each and what you can expect.
PINK is . . .
Your classic romantic comedy. Our pink tales will have you falling in love, time and time again. These books are full of fun and adventure! Read our rom coms if you like Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones's Diary, Marian Keyes’ This Charming Man and Sophie Kinsella’s THE UNDOMESTIC GODDESS.
BLUE is . . .
Rural romance set in the great Australian outback. Think cowboys, tough independent women, B&S balls, utes, droughts and lots of mischief. You’re bound to fall deeply for our strong yet playful blue romances if you love Loretta Hill’s THE GIRL IN THE STEEL-CAPPED BOOTS, Margareta Osborn’s BELLA'S RUN and Rachael Herron’s ELIZA’S GIFT.
VIOLET is . . .
Swoon-worthy historical romance with everything to get your heart pumping, from rakish Dukes in Regency ballrooms, to swashbuckling pirate scoundrels on the high seas. If you fell deeply for OUTLANDER by Diana Gabaldon, VENETIA by Georgette Heyer or Courtney Milan’s The Duchess War, you are sure to be swept away by our violet historical romances.
ORANGE is . . .
Drama. These books are full of the twists and turns we face in life, and showcase the way love can bring us all together.

Paranormal romance. Our green books are where you’ll find bewitching shapeshifters, vampires, ghosts, werewolves and zombies. These are sultry stories that you can really sink your teeth into. Think Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight, Anne Rice’s THE VAMPIRE CHRONICLES and Isaac Marion’s WARM BODIES.
AQUA is . . .
Crime romance to die for. Aqua is your colour if you’re a sucker for serial killers, hard-talking cops and chilling suspense, with a side order of thrilling romance.
