Formerly located near Elizabeth Street with posters of Fabio pinned up proudly in the window, Rendezvous has reinvented itself as a bookstore and cafe further up Lonsdale Street. Passionately devoted to romance fiction, Rendezvous stock titles from a range of genres, from contemporary and erotica to regency and vampire tales of love and lasciviousness. Even if romance novels don’t do it for you, Rendezvous is well worth a visit, if only to discover genres you never even knew existed (paranormal romance, anyone?) You never know: the list of staff favourites on the shop’s website just might send your beating heart (or quivering loins) aflutter. With titles like Night Pleasures, Ravished and The Pirate Lord, how could you possibly resist?
