She won the Romance Writers of Australia (RWA) Romantic Book of the Year Award in 2011 and 2012. She was also voted most popular romantic suspense a

“The insanity of love, and that’s why you’re trying to drive away with the park brake on.”
Helene Young, Shattered Sky

“I think I love you, Bennett. Probably not relevant at the moment so no need to say thanks.”
Helene Young, Shattered Sky

“A man doesn't want to be rejected. We're really quite sensitive.

'Sensitive?' She laughed, her head on one side. 'Sensitive egos you mean. Never met a man who didn't have one of those.”
Helene Young, Shattered Sky

Plato

“Nick looked to the sky again, searching for a last glimpse of the shiny jet. ‘For us, maybe, but courtesy of Nina and her reckless ambition Ellie Wilding will remember this day for the rest of her life.”
Helene Young

“Thanks, Ms Wilding.’

She raised one eyebrow. ‘Who?’

‘You must be Tom’s daughter, the photographer. You look like him. A prettier version, sexy, even.’ His laugh was a smoky rumble as he spun on his heel.

‘Don’t presume to know anything about me, Mr Lawson.’

He hefted his pack and strode away, power in the length of stride.”
Helene Young, Half Moon Bay
