Find out a little more about the Books with Heart team at Hachette Australia + Hachette New Zealand.


AlisonMy world exploded the summer I discovered Helen Fielding and Marion Keyes. From then on I haven’t been able get enough of books that make me swoon.

Give me an alpha and a kick-ass woman and I am hooked, it doesn’t really matter what sub-genre of romance it is, as long as there is love.









LauraAs a member of the Hachette Australia publicity team, it’s my responsibility – and my delight – to ensure that the reading public gets to hear about all the wonderful books we publish. I have a particular love of historical romance, but I also enjoy reading contemporary and paranormal romances, romantic suspense novels and just about any genre in-between.

My only real requirements are a feisty heroine and a swoon-worthy hero, a dollop of hope – and some smooching, of course!





As Digital Marketing Coordinator at Hachette Australia I love books! I also have a heart so I definitely meet the criteria to be on the Books With Heart team.

I’m addicted to chocolate, #TorsoTuesday and you’ll find a mix of historical & contemporary romance (with a sexy Scot in a kilt) on my iPad. Jamie Fraser is my #MCM everyday.




KimI got my first taste of heart filled books as a YA blogger, before settling down in the Product department of Hachette Australia. I tend to read mostly Young Adult, Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance novels – but I’m open to anything with a good hook!

My ideal weekend is sitting back with a cup of tea, a new book and a few hours of uninterrupted reading time.







KellyAs someone who believes that a love story is a must have in any book, it’s easy to see how I fell into Books With Heart! I’m the Marketing Coordinator here at Hachette Australia, and will devour anything – historical, paranormal, suspense, fantasy and a lot of tea.

I’m also a big fan of a good #ManCrushMonday coupled with a little #WineWednesday.





ChristineI love to read a wide range of books which helps as I am Head of Consumer Marketing here at Hachette Australia and work with a wide range of books each week.

My favourite book escape is to curl up with a new Cathy Kelly. I feel like I am being transported back home through the pages.[yep, you guessed it I’m from Ireland originally]






EssieAs the Digital Sales Manager at Hachette Australia, I am constantly learning about and devouring romance and commercial fiction – it is no secret that romance is the highest selling eBook genre! On my bookshelves at home you will find a very wide selection of books though; from illustrated titles, crime, literature and even the odd fantasy title.

For me any book with great characters, and a world I can escape into is a Book with Heart™
