Daisy Darling Meets A Man
By Lindy Dale

What would you do if you opened your door in the dead of night to find a handsome man on the other side? Holding an orphaned lamb.

After being dumped by her husband, Daisy wants nothing more than to curl up in her pyjamas every night and drink herself into sleep. She doesn't want to face her life. Then, one night, a storm brings a stranger to her door. A stranger who turns out to be the most famous rock star on the planet, Hawk Moon.
Hawk is nothing like Daisy imagined a rock star would be. He's honest and down to Earth and in the short time he's in her life, Daisy finds herself feeling emotions she hasn't experienced in a very long time. There's something about Hawk that makes her want to start her life over.

But Hawk and Daisy will never be an item. Hawk is on tour. Daisy lives in the country. She's small town and he's the universe. Their worlds can never collide. Or can they?

Daisy Darling Meets A Man is $0.99 on Kindle.

My Spanish Interlude
By Anna Maria O'Donovan

Daily News reporter Sylvia Parker is sent to a popular resort on Spain’s Mediterranean coast to interview Hollywood heartthrob Nicholas Platt. It’s an opportunity for Sylvia to make a name for herself at the paper, but it’s also the cause of a quarrel with boyfriend Christopher – and when Sylvia catches the early-morning flight to Malaga she finds herself moping over a broken engagement.

Sylvia’s Spanish fixer, Santiago, offers the prospect of consolation on the rebound, but things go awry when Sylvia and Santiago are plunged inadvertently into the world of international crime. Sylvia gets a bigger story than she’d bargained for and is kidnapped for her pains. First Santiago and then Christopher help her sidestep the malevolent machinations of gang boss Tony Esperanza.

My Spanish Interlude is comic, romantic and thrilling – sometimes all three at the same time.
