'There is always one who kisses and one who holds the cheek...

'Kate Osborne and Hal got engaged in Sydney; but soon Kate had to admit that things were not right between them. She found she could not bear the humiliation of being 'the one who kisses!'

'Had he changed, or was he really very selfish and cruel? And how did he measure up to someone like Rick Benallen? No less handsome, Rick was somehow a man on whom one could depend...'

Works about this Work

The Wide Brown Land and the Big Smoke : The Setting of Australian Popular Romance Juliet Flesch , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Sold by the Millions : Australia's Bestsellers 2012; (p. 82-95)
'People (90% of them women) often read romance novels to learn about another place (see Radway 60-61). We will consider this with reference to some Australian romance novels published in the last decade. Readers with an interest in those published between 1950-2000 are invited to consult From Australia with Love (2004). Australia's romance novelists know that the vast majority of their readers live outside the country and they take pride in accurately describing both it and 'typically Australian' characters. This chapter will examine how far their portrayal of the natural or built environment reflects Australian reality, although any generalisation is unreliable. There are several dozen Australian currently publishing romance novels. Over the years there have been dozens more. Harelequin Mills & Boon, on whose output this chapter is based, published fifteen titles by Australian authors in February/March 2010 alone and there are of course other publishers.' (Author's introduction 82)
