swancovemurders_72dpi__92229_1319417187_1280_1280As if the violent murder of Lena Dixon’s fiancé hadn’t been bad enough, now his brother, Nicholas Hunter, is court ordered to live with her for the next thirty days. And to top it off, the murderer’s ghost is asserting his innocence and refuses to leave until Lena and Nicholas prove it.
The skeptic in Nicholas believes Lena has lost her mind until he witnesses some unexplainable
events and is forced to believe in her psychic abilities and his heart’s desire.
As their sexual chemistry heats up, so do their guilt levels. Can they make their newfound relationship work, or will it be too late when the real killer comes calling for her?

While you’re there, grab a copy of her latest release, Secrets of Jenkins Bridge.


Hunting down a dangerous mob boss has brought FBI agent Mitchell Donovan home, reawakening an old flame, resurrecting a dead best friend, and discovering fatherhood. As if those aren’t enough, his new case will push everything else aside: finding the kidnappers who took the daughter he never knew he had.

Katherine Delaney never forgot the heartbreak Mitchell had caused with his abrupt departure all those years ago. With her dead ex-husband accused of murder and her daughter kidnapped, she will place her trust in the one man who could trample her heart again if she gets too close. But, will the resurrection of Katherine’s ex-husband and Mitchell’s chase for a killer destroy their second chance at love and happiness?


Donna Shields grew up on romance and scary stories. With her love for suspense and the slightly unusual, she enjoys tying these elements together to create stories full of love, danger, and the paranormal.

She lives in the beautiful upstate of South Carolina with her husband, her children, and some great haunts. She’s a mom, a ‘gramma’, a wife, a friend, an avid reader and writer. When she’s not occupied with all that, she loves traveling to Playa del Carmen and Jamaica.

What’s New Wednesday

It’s a holiday week, so hopefully today is everyone’s Friday. With celebration in mind, we’ll have two posts today. First, is a brand new contemporary romance by Kathryn Maeglin.

Welcome, Kathryn, and thank you for stopping by.

Kathryn:  I have good news for YOU, dear reader. The e-publishing revolution means there are now more books that combine genres. For example, if you like books that blend romance and mystery, you may have had difficulty finding such books in the past. That’s because publishers usually preferred books that fit neatly into just one genre category—for ease of marketing, shelving, etc.

Now that there are many more publishing options, books that blur the genre lines have a much better chance of finding their way to you. My new novel A Hunka Hunka Nursing Love is a good example of one that straddles genre boundaries. Technically, it’s women’s fiction, meaning it focuses primarily on the woman’s journey. But it also includes quite a bit of romance. Here’s a brief description:

Hunka CoverA Hunka Hunka Nursing Love

Imagine a visiting-nurse service with hot young guys as caregivers. What golden girl wouldn’t dig that?

Valerie Palka is a savvy businesswoman who is obsessed with keeping her elderly mom, Helen, safe from all the lethal disasters that can befall widows living alone. Helen thinks the workaholic Valerie should focus on having as much luck in the bedroom as she does in the boardroom. But when Helen takes a spill and is rushed to the ER, a handsome male nurse, Keith Nuber, strikes her fancy, and she tells her daughter, “If you could get a handsome devil like that to take care of me, I’d be willing to consider it.” So Valerie creates a care agency, Home Health Hunks, staffed by attractive younger men.

Valerie’s idea is filled with potential … and potholes. As she navigates the tricky road to satisfying her mom as well as her own ambition, she finds herself falling for one of her employees—Keith—and is forced to examine her beliefs about the true meaning of success.

As you can see, this novel will appeal not only to those who can relate to the challenges of caring for an aging parent, but also those who enjoy some spicy romance, all delivered with a touch of humor. Life doesn’t always fit into categories. Why should our fiction have to?

Whatever you enjoy reading, I hope the new publishing landscape will open up wonderful vistas for you to explore. Bon voyage!
