A warm welcome to author Nic Starr joining us to talk about new release “Runaway”, part of the World of Love Series by Dreamspinner Press.
Welcome Nic 🙂
A big thank you to Love Bytes for hosting me today as I celebrate the release of Runaway.
Runaway is my latest release. It’s part of the Dreamspinner Press World of Love collection. The World of Love stories are “contemporary romances spotlighting the unique features, qualities and attributes of a specific country as well as the universality of love wherever it’s found.”
The story of Nate and Damien takes place in the Australian state of New South Wales, starting in a small country town on the north coast, followed by time spent in Sydney. To celebrate the release of the book, I thought I’d share some of my beautiful city of Sydney with you all.
Everyone loves a visit to the zoo! How can you go past all those gorgeous animals? So much to see and do! Taronga Zoo is the zoo in the centre of Sydney, just a short ferry ride from the city. And if I must say so myself, it’s very special. The zoo is nestled on the edge of the harbour with the most magnificent views both during the day and at night.
Here’s a photo of the giraffes that shows just how close to the CBD the zoo is. Don’t those giraffe’s have a great view?
As well as being a location for viewing all kinds of animals, the zoo also has activities including treetop rope walks, and camping. My husband and I enjoyed an overnight experience at the zoo which included special night time feeding activities and behind the scenes tours. Over the years, we’ve also seen many concerts at the zoo as part of their Twilight at Taronga series. It’s wonderful to sit on the launch with a glass of wine and a picnic, watching the sun go down over the water and the city lights coming on, all while being entertained with some great music.
I hope you liked seeing a little piece of Sydney and enjoy experiencing a little more when reading Runaway.

Dr Nathan Powell is ready to settle down near his family, and hopefully find the man of his dreams. He returns to the small coastal town where he grew up, but while life is simpler than it was in the city, there are also complications—like patients’ reactions to an openly gay doctor. And like running into Nate’s first love, Damien, an out-and-proud local business owner who is unwilling to be any man’s dirty secret. The reunion reignites old desire even while it stirs up Nate’s guilt over the way things ended with Damien. When Nate’s nephew runs away, Damien accompanies Nate on his mission to find the young man. The drive to Sydney, and the search of the city, gives Nate time to reconnect with Damien—and to wonder if he made the right decision years ago—when he determined a future for them was impossible. Is a fresh start realistic for two men in their forties? But before he can ponder the second chance they’ve been given, Nate must locate his nephew.
World of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the globe.
Nic Starr lives in Australia where she tries to squeeze as much into her busy life as possible. Balancing the demands of a corporate career with raising a family and writing can be challenging but she wouldn’t give it up for the world.
Always a reader, the lure of m/m romance was strong and she devoured hundreds of wonderful m/m romance books before realising she had some stories of her own that needed to be told.
Nic loves to spend time with her family—an understanding husband, two beautiful daughters, and a cherished Cairn terrier. Nic is a foodie and wine lover who lives in the city but is a country girl at heart. When not writing or reading, she is often found indulging in her love of cooking and planning her dream home in the country.
You can find Nic on Facebook, Twitter and her blog. She’d love it if you stopped by to say hi.
