New Zealand Romance Authors and New Zealand Romance Books

Date: 12th July 2020, Posted by mollie

I hope wherever you are in the world you are happy and safe. I am feeling blessed to be a New Zealand Romance author and to live in the beautiful Bay of Islands where I set many of my New Zealand Romance books.

It’s easier to maintain safe social distancing here than it is in Europe and other populated countries, and we are lucky to have (fingers crossed) COVID-19 somewhat under control.

There are less overseas tourists in our beautiful country now—but lots of people would love to come and live here. By some twist of fate, I was lucky to be born in New Zealand. And my mum told me I was conceived up here in the Bay of Islands. So I am doubly lucky!

Last weekend my lover took me on the coolest, fastest speed boat ride! There was only two of on the ride—we had all the thrills to ourselves. It was so much fun. And look at the weather… in the photo above…beautiful and sunny and it’s winter!

I know you can’t travel here at the moment, but you can through some of the love stories I have set in New Zealand.

Love All of Me

BookBrushImage500

An unexpected lover…

After surviving a horrific accident Katie Miller is plagued by guilt. Hiding both her mental and physical scars, she shuns love and escapes into work—finding meaning and purpose in running her global manuka honey empire.

Beautiful and smart, when Gianni Romano demands she sell the business to him, her passions are inflamed. How dare he think he can buy the only thing that gives her a reason to live?

Gianni Romano has ventured to New Zealand by the one thing he’d love to escape: family The Romano fortune and name has followed him wherever he goes. But that only made the headstrong Italian more determined to strike out on his own. Now he’s on the cusp of achieving world acclaim.

Only one woman stands in his way—Katie Miller and her refusal to submit to his demands. The spark they have is more than a Sicilian sunset, but when emotions run deep and lives are on the line, will mixing business with pleasure be the bedrock for a lifelong love? Or will it all explode like an angry volcano?

Love Me As I Am is a clean romance, brimming with the promise of a happily ever after. Set in The Bay of Islands, New Zealand—one of the most beautiful, unspoiled, sensuous places in the world.

Love Me As I Am

BookBrushImage1461

The deepest hurts can herald the deepest love

Kiri Love had no need for friendships. She had no time for distraction. She was in her final year of medical studies by the grace of God to do a job—and she was determined to do a darned good one. There was no way she could fail.

Her mom had scrimped and saved every last dollar she earned and worked three jobs to pay for Kiri’s education and Kiri was determined to make her proud. She would be the first person in her family to receive a degree and achieve her ambition of being a heart surgeon.

But when her mother is murdered, she sacrifices her ambitions and travels back to the tiny Far North town which had created so much pain.

With three sisters under nine to feed, she’ll do whatever it takes to provide them with the security they need—even if it means grovelling to Benotti Zegna, reclusive billionaire jeweller-to-the-stars.

Benotti Zegna has a heart of gold but a failed marriage has left him cold. His hands are full running his global empire, plus being top-dad to his young and motherless daughter.

He can spot a diamond in the rough and while alarm-bells warn him to watch his heart, intuition tells him that Kiri Love will make the perfect nanny.

The role he offers is a far cry from her the life she’d hope to lead, but Kiri quickly discovers the power of family and sacrifice to heal the deepest of wounds.

Love Me As I Am is a short story, clean romance, full of quirky humour and the promise of a happily ever after.

Set in The Bay of Islands, New Zealand—one of the most gorgeous, stunning, sensuous escapes on the globe.

Love Me As I Am is part of Mollie Mathew’s bestselling series, Passion Down Under Sassy Short Stories. It can easily be read as a stand-alone story, but you’ll love reading the other books, too.

Praise for this series

Love Me Forever has a lovely mystical feel about it, with deep longings being experienced by the characters. A delightful mystical romance with a dream-like quality, fraught with all the longings of Joey’s heart. When she plants her wish for her sister beneath the walnut tree, she doesn’t realize that the longings of her own heart have been heard.

When a stranger steps up to her in the vineyard it is the beginning of healing for her own heart. Well written with deeply emotive feelings, this book is part of a series and ends on a cliffhanger.”

~ Margaret W.

“Beautifully written. The author’s vivid and descriptive writing style pulled me into a world I never wanted to leave.  Very beautiful stories!”

~ Hugh Harrison

“This was a fun read I really enjoyed. It’s perfect for a lazy weekend. This is the first book I have read by this author but it won’t be last. I can’t wait to be more.”

Do you dream of travelling to New Zealand? Now you can—all from the safety of your own home. The Italian Billionaire’s Scandalous Marriage is set amongst the spectacular scenery of the South Island in New Zealand.

When a lonely young American woman inherits a painting she discovers her whole life was a lie. Desperate for the truth, she goes in search of her true identity. The painting is her only clue. But everyone is determined to keep its secret past repressed, including Vitaliano Rossi, the Italian gold tycoon, unnaturally suspicious of her motives, who wants the painting vanquished. How can she discover who she really is and convince him that his love means more to her than gold?
