More about this book

Just like a delicious box of assorted chocolates, this swoon-worthy collection of romantic stories - inspired by Elizabeth Barrett Browning's famous romantic sonnet and written by the cream of Australia's romance writers - has something to please everyone.


How do I love thee? Let me count the ways ...

With these words from Elizabeth Barrett Browning's famous romantic sonnet to inspire them, twelve wonderful writers offer new and tantalising views on love and romance which will make your heart beat faster.

This collection is like a box of chocolates - there's something delicious for everyone. From Valerie Parv's Never Too Late, featuring the gorgeously rugged Cade Thatcher, to Anita Bell's wickedly funny Killer Smile, and Anna Jacobs' poignant soldier-settler's tale A Much-Needed Wife, these stories and others by Anne-Maree Britton, Ann Charlton, Daphne Clair, Craig Cormick, Alexis Fleming, Alan Gold , AJ Macpherson, Judy Neumann and Sonny Whitelaw will engage your dreams and desires. Romance served with a twist of classic suspense or vampires, time-travelling or the erotic - this selection is a delight.

These unique love stories are brought to you by some of Australia's top-selling and award-winning authors with international sales in the millions.

How do I Love Thee appeals to that little bit of the romantic in us all.

With twenty five million copies of her books sold internationally, Valerie Parv is known as Australia's queen of romance. She has written over 60 novels and her short fiction is also regularly featured in national magazines.
