SET in the Australian outback Bella's Run is a riveting romance novel with a slight twist that is really refreshing.

Bella Vermaelon and her best bud Patty decide to take a gap year to experience life, live dangerously and hopefully find romance with a hunky stockman or station owner.

Working on remote properties they tackle every kind of task imaginable as they make their way up to central Queensland.

When Patty's brother Will and Bella's cousin Macca turn up out of the blue it throws a few spanners into their idyllic lifestyle.

But it also means that romance could be on its way.

But what starts out as an innocent flirtation soon has Bella longing for home and family.

And it takes a tragic accident to make her realise that she is not as rock solid as she appears.

Feeling lost, Bella decides to run away from everyone she holds dear. But can she turn her back on love or on the land that is in her blood?

Bella's Run is a delightful romantic novel sprinkled with our Australia sense of humour.

It is just the thing to curl up with on the weekend.
