Coming January 27th 2015
The Redemption of Soul Dallas

Eighteen and homeless, Soul Dallas has more to worry about than what he’ll be doing this New Year’s. In a town where compassion is rare and malice plenty, he’s left for dead by a gang seeking revenge for his father’s debts.
Displaying Quote Pic 1.pngWhen anxiety-burdened Lana provides him with shelter, she’s swept into his world of pandemonium where fear means fight not flight. Leaving behind her imprisoned life with an over-bearing mother, she learns of Soul’s shocking past and what it truly means to be alive. But when the gang closes ranks and Soul falls ill, finding a bright future seems futile.
Together Soul and Lana must seek reason behind an ally’s betrayal, a dead woman’s return, and the ruthlessness behind some people’s need for vengeance.
But the pair don’t always see eye to eye, and each have plans that could jeopardise everything.

The Redemption of Soul Dallas is contracted with Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Press.

BLURB: The hard rock band Her Final Sleep are not only beautiful, they are incredibly talented. They have the small town of Pine Lake completely enamored, but some say they hide something evil in their old house just outside of town. Kyle Van Velt and his friends are about to have a run in with Her Final Sleep, with disastrous consequences.

EXCERPT:  The warmth on her neck was replaced with a sudden coldness.
“No, please don’t stop.”
 A single droplet of blood, nearly black in the dim glow of the hearth, rolled down Sasha’s chin, down between her breasts, down the gentle furrow of her chest, stopping at her belly button.
 From the chair by the fireplace, the winter-blonde, Amber, spoke now: “You need more practice, Sasha. Not a drop should be spilt.” She rose to her feet.
“I know this. But she’s so sweet. I’ve never tasted anyone so sweet.”
Amber near floated to the girl. She wrapped a hand around Sarah’s neck, harder, without the caress Sasha had given. She penetrated her neck in a fresh spot, avoiding where Sasha had made her marks.
This fresh pain was brilliant, searing. Sarah could not help but scream. She felt her energy beginning to drain.
Finally Amber pulled her head back, dug her nails into Sarah’s neck not quite hard enough to draw blood. She snarled, revealing long fangs covered in dark blood. Not so much as a drop escaped her lips.
“Struggle, rabbit. Struggle and I’ll snap your neck with one hand.”
From behind: “You’ll do no such thing, Amber.  Sire would be enraged with the waste of such sweet flesh.”
Amber dove back onto the neck. After a moment, from the chair by the fireplace: “That’s enough. “

Kingston 691 Release Day Blitz

How can he love a wife he doesn’t remember?

Kingston West put his military service behind him much easier than most of the men he served with during the final war. As far as he was concerned, the cyborg who was Kingston 691 no longer existed. And the Cyber Husband program? He viewed it like he viewed having been a prisoner of war. Both were just service related memories he didn’t plan on recalling. The future was all he needed.

At least he felt that way until he discovered one wife’s file had been totally erased from his Cyber Husband records. Only her name remained in data storage, though her family swore they’d had a loving relationship. To put the past completely behind him, King must first find the missing Seetha Harrington. Before he can enjoy his new beginning, he needs to find out why Norton took those seven years together away from both of them.

My story of writing romances
As a life-long romance reader, I have always been drawn to stories containing strong heroes and heroines who know their minds and live their truths. When I got the urge to write about older women and men, I did so with full knowledge some readers might not be interested in reading about mature characters in love. I knew there was a possibility the stories might not sell, but in typical Baby Boomer rebellious fashion, I said “screw it, I’m not making the characters younger, they need to be older”.
Why did I do this? Because my youngest child is twenty-eight, not eighteen. Because I’ve had two, long term relationships where I continue to happily express my sexuality. The first one lasted for twenty-three years. I personally know people of many ages who are still falling in love as if they were a teenager and new at it. Being older–or so it seems to me–just means you just get to the profound, meaningful sex part quicker, and there’s so much less fumbling in the dark. Thank heaven for experience.
What has my writing brought me? Mostly the pleasure of knowing readers like my work. Your many emails and messages remind me daily why you are the reason I wanted to write so badly in the first place. I want to make you laugh and make you see that significant other person in life with new and more appreciate eyes. I want to inspire you to keep looking for the good things in life, including your pleasure in living. I want everyone I come into contact with to know that love, sex, and romance are great at any age.
Thank you for buying my books and helping make my dreams come true. I hope I can return the favor in some small way with my books.
Much love and happiness,
~ Donna McDonald
PS: I really do believe that it’s never too late for romance and love.
