We offer a wide range of books to cater to all tastes and our friendly, non-judgemental service is exemplary (well, we think so!). We love romance and believe everyone should have their reading choices readily available to them.

Australian Talents

Being an Australian operated and owned bookstore, we feel it’s our duty to support our Aussie writers, so you’ll find plenty of very talented ladies (and gents) gracing our website.

You’ll find many titles by Anne Gracie, Stephanie Laurens, Keri Arthur, Kylie Scott and Anna Campbell on our site and we’ll be adding more as we go along.

Upcoming Events

Book Club Meetings

**Postponed til further notice** (30/06/2021)

Held on the last Saturday of every month, our book group meetings have been an on-going event for the past 11 years. Our members LOVE these few hours of total romantic bliss.

We talk romance to death, eat yummy food, browse the shelves, talk more romance and it’s become a wonderful social event for many of us and you’re sure to make life-long friends with some amazing people! Oh, and we discuss a book we pick out the previous month—usually a new-to-us or debut author. They really are fun days.

Time: 1.30pm to 3.30pm

Day:  Last Saturday of every month (unless it falls on a public holiday).

Members are entitled to a 10% discount on their purchases too!

We warmly welcome new members!

Who we are

About us

Ever After—The Romance Book Specialists opened its doors in 2003 to very enthusiastic fans who had been deprived of their favourite reading choice: romantic fiction.

Since that fateful day, we have grown to be one of the premier specialty bookstores in the country offering a huge range of historical, contemporary and paranormal romances as well as urban fantasy, and for the more adventurous, hot erotica titles. These are sourced directly from the US, so shipments of books arrive weekly and super-fast—readers no longer have to wait months for their favourite books!

We believe our customer service is second to none and we strive to keep our readers well-informed about new and upcoming releases and promise to continue to do that well into the future.
We take pride in helping our customers and we love to talk books, so if you’re in Wollongong, make sure to drop by for a chat.

Urban Fantasy

Urban Fantasy novels encompass a whole range of romantic sub-genres but focus more on the adventures of the hero or heroine and often feature darker characters. They are exciting, fast-paced and action-packed. Laurell K Hamilton, Keri Arthur, Kelley Armstrong, Patricia Briggs, Charlaine Harris and Ilona Andrews are just a few of the mega-popular authors that have become must reads.
