Generally speaking, I find people tend to fall into two camps about spring. Either they feel it’s the time for new blooms and burgeoning life, raindrops glistening in spider webs and chicks chirping from nests, or that it’s some new kind of hell, where pollen runs amok and eyes water and noses run, made even more complicated this year with the daily morning routine of ‘Is this just my allergies or do I have coronavirus?’
I don’t mind which side you fall on, because I think we can both agree on one thing. Spring is the perfect time for fresh starts, new love, and most definitely the perfect time for a fling. Here are 10 romances under $5 to inspire your next spring fling!
Her Knight in Shining Armour by Robyn Rychards
Spring is all about fresh starts, and Paisley certainly has that covered. With a new name, and everything she owns in her car, she certainly doesn’t need a knight in shining armour to help her escape her abusive ex … or maybe she does.
The House at Flynn’s Crossing by Elisabeth Rose
Single mum Antonia is also looking for a fresh start. Anxious to rid herself and her twins of the dark memories from their past, Antonia moves to the small rural town of Flynn’s Crossing where she meets Flynn, someone who makes her feel normal and safe. Until she discovers Flynn isn’t being entirely honest with her.
Red Dust Runaway by Eva Scott
Red dust, rock stars, rebels and road trips. A chance encounter in a car park leads to a snap decision and suddenly Kit and Iris are on an extraordinary road trip together across Australia, making their own choices, breaking all the rules. But reality is chasing them, and soon they will have to decide whether they are just running away – or running away together.
Love Elimination by Sarah Gates
Anna knows reality TV is all a lie. She’s only a last-minute ring-in and gorgeous leading man Luke Westwood can’t possibly be the real deal. Can he? As their passion sizzles, both in front and away from the camera, Anna might need to rethink her plans for a quick elimination.
Someone Like You by Victoria Purman
Spring is the perfect time for new beginnings, but buying a crumbling piece of coastal real estate and hiding away after his near-death experience might not have been Dan’s best idea.

Kiss Lee, her former boss and hot-as-hell neighbour. The only problem is, Lee thinks her accident was his fault, and he’s not going to be responsible for hurting her again.
