Christmas on Wherever Island - Why not?

Fly Off to a Caribbean Island for Christmas?

Christmas on Wherever Island by Amber Polo

A Magic Santa brings Caribbean Christmas Joy!

Marti Bell is facing the prospect of a very unmerry Christmas. Reluctantly, leaving her married lover she travels toward ice, snow, and judgmental family until a magic Santa sends her to a surprise destination in the warm waters of the Caribbean.  

Wherever Island would be a winter paradise except the only place to stay is the beachside cottage of romantic globetrotting photographer Cliff Holmes. Cliff wants to unwind and treat Marti to a little romantic Caribbean Christmas fun but she’s determined to stay in the warm ocean and out of hot water. 

  “Not only is the setting sensational, the hero will sweep you off your feet…this is one story I can read every Christmas season. …a great happily ever after story.”

A Review of Donna Boyd's Renegade, at last!

Ten years is a long time to wait, but fans of Donna Boyd's “The Passion” (1998) and “The Promise” (1999) waited not so patiently for the third in the Devoncroix Dynasty series. Now there is “Renegade” - published by the author whose real name is Donna Ball and whose other names include Rebecca Flanders, Donna Carlisle, Leigh Bristol, and Taylor Brady.

I discovered her work when I first shared my fantasy manuscript filled with shifter dogs and a few werewolves. A dog trainer friend told me I must read “The Passion.” I found not the werewolves of scary movies, teens from “Twilight” (2005), or the children’s fantasy world of Harry Potter (1997). Here was a race of creatures living among us - our business leaders, sports stars, and glittering celebrities - like us, but more gloriously beautiful and intelligent. They embodied the best and the worst of humanity. I believed in that possibility as I imagine did many of her fans.

Step into the world of the Devoncroix werewolves and look at the world differently. I loved returning to the castle in Alaska and leaning more about their lives in Italy. “Renegade" like the others is an exciting, well-crafted mix of urban fantasy, suspense, mystery, romance, shapeshifting werewolves, and historical fiction.
Writers will want to read her story of why her well-reviewed, popular series was canceled by a major publisher and how “Renegade” is out in print and ebook along with many of her earlier books in eformats. 

And writers will want to read “The Passion” for the shifting often missing in many shifter stories. 

“The Passion” and “The Promise” are, sadly NOT in ebook format. If you want to read it in eformat

Click on “Tell the Publisher! I’d like to read this book on Kindle”  on both Amazon pages to let them know.

More please, Ms. Boyd. Don’t let the lupinotuum keep you from sharing their stories.
