My Life, My Way

by Gina Liano

‘Sassy and sophisticated. Tough and tender. Glamorous and gregarious. Everyone has an opinion of Gina Liano, but those who know even a little about her know she’s a survivor, then a thriver and always a winner … against all odds.’ – EDDIE McGUIRE

Most people will know Gina Liano as the larger than-life personality on The Real Housewives of Melbourne. But few know the real-life story behind her rise to fame on reality TV and in Australia’s legal circles as a respected Melbourne barrister. Just like the woman herself, Fearless is up-front, inspiring and passionate.

Born in Melbourne to Italian parents, Gina’s happy childhood turned sour when her parents’ business and marriage failed. Gina battled to finish her schooling, and while her ambition was to study law, she was a married mother of one by the time she was 23. Along with her talented sisters she would establish three highly successful fashion stores in stylish inner-Melbourne.

But Gina never lost sight of her goal to study law and become a barrister, and at 33, after years of schooling, she was finally admitted to the bar. With a dream career, a new husband and a second child, she was ready to take on the world. But it was not to be; only four years later, she received a shock diagnosis of life-threatening cancer.

With more twists and turns than any reality TV show, every step of Gina’s unique journey is intimately recounted with the frankness and honesty that audiences have come to expect from the straight-talking star of the Real Housewives series.

ABS-olutely Great Romance!

There’s no doubt about it, when I pass by a book and glimpse some skin I stop. Who can resist a shirtless guy? I can’t. It’s one of the main reasons I read romance novels, and because I love finding out about the man behind the cover.

It’s even more pleasing when I find out the guy, whilst stubborn, is actually really sensitive due to his past or present experiences. But let’s be honest, those blurbs are too damn short.

So in celebration of ABS-olutely great romance, here are four reads from some of our favourites: Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Ashley, Shelly Laurenston and Manda Collins…

by Jeaniene Frost

Now that Vlad knows his nemesis, Mihaly Szilagyi, is still alive, the hunt is on. But after the close call Leila suffered at Szilagy’s hands he refuses to accept her help finding him, let alone allowing her anywhere near the madman. Vlad’s seen enough death to last all his lifetimes – he doesn’t plan on putting his beloved in the path of destruction too. Leila understands Vlad’s resistance, but with her psychometric abilities, she’s the perfect person to check for loyalty among his ranks and search for Szilagyi – if only Vlad will accept her help.

Stuck between staying true to Vlad and helping him defeat his nemesis, Leila’s forced to more…

the-unleashingThe Unleashing

by Shelly Laurenston

Kera Watson never expected to face death behind a Los Angeles coffee shop. Not after surviving two tours lugging an M16 around the Middle East. If it wasn’t for her hot Viking customer showing up too late to help, nobody would even see her die.

In uncountable years of service to the Allfather Odin, Ludvig “Vig” Rundstrom has never seen anyone kick ass with quite as much style as Kera. He knows one way to save her life–but she might not like it. Signing up with the Crows will get Kera a more…
