Sunflowers and Sunshine at last! @donnag63


2015 has been the year that nearly wasn’t. My life was turned upside down in February when I found myself in hospital. To say it was a lengthy stay is quite the understatement. I didn’t return home until the end of May. All the writing plans I had etc were shoved to the back burner – so to speak and I was heartbroken that I had to cancel two conferences, RT in Dallas and the Australian Romance Readers convention in Canberra. Maybe I will make it to RT in Vegas next year. On the positive side my family did learn to take care of themselves…


While I was ‘away’ the second book in my Haven Security series, An Opportunity for Redemption released. I was not able to give my new release any promotion at the time. So, thanks to my friends at Book Rhythm we are plugging Nate and Bec’s story now :)

I also added another fur-baby to my family. Toni the mini dachshund now has a baby brother, Ralph the toy Pomeranian. They are so sweet.


Celebrating the Release of My New Haven Security Series – Parties, Blog Tours and Feature Articles.

B96OUi-IgAAx9YkReleasing a new series, especially in a new genre is exciting and terrifying at the same time. After seven books in my League of Love series I thought it was time to try something new. So I swapped my sexy Aussie sportsmen for the hot alpha ex-soldiers of Haven Security.

I love a new release but, not so much the promotion. I always feel like I’m pushing my book down your throat so to speak. I even get tired of seeing me ;)

I was thrilled though to be able to do a feature at the Are Café and one for USA Today’s, Happy Ever After recently.

New Release Giveaway – A Fruitful Intimacy by @donnag63


afruitfulintimacy_800To celebrate the re-release of my short story A Fruitful Intimacy by Totally Bound Publishing,  I thought I’d offer a few e book copies as a giveaway. Entering is simple, just tell me where you would go for a second honeymoon or to reignite that spark with your significant other.

In my story Ben and Beth go to a beautiful island off the coast of Australia. Heron Island is a natural coral cay 89 kms off the coast of Queensland, on the Great Barrier Reef. In the crystal clear aquamarine waters surrounding the island, stunning coral gardens and sea creatures great and small flourish in abundance and colour.HER0080_CircleOfLife_Header_962x401_v1_1

The fire and passion of their love has slowly ebbed away through years of neglect. Can a second honeymoon re-ignite that spark?

There has been no physical contact in their marriage for so long that when Ben first hatches his plan to take Beth away for the weekend, it really is all about the sex and providing an environment where there are no distractions and no excuse for her to refuse his advances again. But while Ben is making all the arrangements, it suddenly becomes clear to him that there’s something more important at stake— His marriage, to the woman of his dreams, is actually in trouble.

Beth believed that motherhood would come easily, that building a perfect world around her three sons and husband would be achievable. But reality has proven her wrong. The more she tried, the more her failures shattered her confidence. Where she planned to shower her family with home baked cookies, smiles and unconditional love, she struggles just getting the evening meal on the table. By the end of the day she’s so exhausted that she can’t even fulfil her marital obligations. Once upon a time making love to Ben was just as necessary as breathing, before her body was ravaged by the demands of pregnancy and childbirth. They’ve grown so far apart that Beth’s convinced Ben’s having an affair.

Can a second honeymoon really help Beth and Ben bridge that growing divide between them and bring back the fire and passion that has slowly, through years of neglect, ebbed away? And will this give the couple a much needed chance to work together for a happier future? Or is it too late?


Excerpt – A Fruitful Intimacy

The heat from the sun’s rays kissed her shoulders. Droplets of perspiration ran down her bikini-clad back as she raced across the powdery, soft sand. Her laughter, using up the much needed oxygen from her lungs, joined together with the sounds of the gulls squealing above. Grains of sand from Ben’s nearing footfalls stung the backs of her calves as he closed in on her. She knew he would catch her quickly. She welcomed it. As his arms closed around her waist, she felt her feet lifted from the ground and their bodies tumbled together into the spill of the ocean.

Ben had turned them at the last moment so his body would cushion her fall, but the splash of seawater covered her. The refreshing salty feel of the warm water cooled her skin but only Ben could extinguish the sexual fires burning within her.

“Running from me already, Mrs Russell? On our honeymoon, no less.” He laughed as his lips moved over hers, demanding yet gentle at the same time. His tongue exploring every crevice of her mouth in its welcomed assault, hers matching the intensity and hunger equally. The beach deserted—Ben’s hands explored her body, cupped her breasts, teasing her nipples into hard buds, causing a ripple effect to heighten her already sexual state. Liquid pooled in her bikini bottom, mixing with the salty wash of the waves rhythmically lapping and breaking over her sensitized pussy.

“Touch me, Ben,” she pleaded, as his strong fingers delved beneath the sides of her wispy swimwear, easily pushing the fabric aside. Their promised destination had her panting with need, spreading apart her thighs in encouragement. She arched her hips forward, impatient for that moment when Ben’s talented touch would make contact with her throbbing clit—wanting to make her pleasurable climb to destination bliss.

What about the warm dishwater had Beth reminiscing about her honeymoon? There was nothing romantic about doing the dishes. After ten years of marriage and bringing three kids into the world, she had cleaned up more times than she could count. Could just the feel of the warm water on her skin be enough to bring about those memories of better times? Swimming, relaxing, or making love had been their only concerns back on that romantic, idyllic island. Whatever the reason for remembering how things used to be, it did nothing to improve her mood. Those days, when romance and sex had been a wonderful feature of her marriage to Ben, were long gone.

Once upon a time they hadn’t been able to keep their hands off each other. Ben had taught Beth all there was to know about sex—sensual, needy, or just plain hot and heavy sex. Together they had explored most of the positions listed in the Kama Sutra. Marking them off one by one as they’d groped, stroked, licked or sucked over every inch of each other’s naked flesh. These days she was lucky to get a kiss on the cheek as Ben raced out of the door on his way to work.


Cover Reveal – An Opportunity for Redemption, Haven Security Book 2 by Donna Gallagher @donnag63





I’m pleased to be able to share my new cover art for An Opportunity for Redemption. This is the second book in my new Haven Security series, following on from An Opportunity Seized.

Set in Australia, my romantic suspense stories feature Nathan Haven and his team of highly skilled, lethal ex-military men at Haven Security. These sexy alphas are more than qualified to protect their clients from danger but are completely defenceless when it comes to the women that capture their hearts.




Here is the blurb for both books coming soon from  Totally Bound Publishing.



anopportunityseized_800Blurb – An Opportunity Seized

Two unforeseen moments in time— One brings them together. The other is a danger so real it could tear them apart.

Antoinette ‘Toni’ Grimaldi prefers to keep out of the spotlight, blend in with the crowd and experience life the same as the bulk of the population. Being a mining magnate’s daughter is a difficult persona for her to uphold. She just doesn’t fit in with high society standards, always managing to say something inappropriate or trip over her own feet at the worst possible moment. Resulting in that look of disappointment and embarrassment her parents inevitably wear whenever she’s around.

Meeting a handsome stranger who comes to her rescue and asks her out on a date is so much more than Toni could have ever hoped for on her dream holiday – one she is surprised her parents have even permitted her to take alone. Her fairy-tale moment is short lived though, when Toni discovers the stranger has been hired by her family to follow her every move – under the guise of keeping her safe.

Jason finds he is drawn to Antoinette, she is nothing like the socialite, he was expecting to shadow around London’s nightclubs at all. After an awkward first meeting he convinces Toni that there is more to his interest in her than just as her bodyguard. To his surprise his attraction for the soft spoken, thoughtful woman grows, despite his usual reluctance to commit to any kind of relationship.

A disaster at one of the family owned mines and a string of death threats forces Toni to return home and her need for a bodyguard becomes a life and death reality.
