The reviews are already coming in and I’m so grateful for the positive response this story is already receiving.

“Two former rodeo stars get a second chance at love in the sweet contemporary standalone that opens Kauffman’s Firefly Lake series, spinning off her Blue Hollow Falls series. Readers of the Blue Hollow Falls series will benefit from being up to speed on the preexisting friendships in this story, but even new readers will delight in the reacquainting of these friends turned lovers.”
~ Publishers Weekly

“Marvelous second chance romance that sees Cheyenne McCafferty and Wyatt Reed come together over a decade after they parted in their teens. They had perhaps been too young to find their HEA back then but by the time they meet in this book they are definitely ready to be together forever – in some ways it is like “coming home” for both of them. It wasn’t all smooth sailing but there definitely was not drama or push-pull and I enjoyed that aspect of this story.

What I liked:
* Wyatt: my oh my…a great book boyfriend and someone I would like to call my friend. He was a man with a purpose and found himself in those years after he left the rodeo behind.
* Cheyenne: a good friend who has found her purpose and a safe haven to call home. She has no blood family left but has created a family of her own
* The Fearsome Foursome: Loved reading the previous books and loved hearing about Vivi and Cheyenne’s romances in this one. The four women central to the lavender farm are wonderful!
* Buttercup & Tory ?
* The small town characters that have been in the series and added their presence to this book, too.
* The way everyone worked together to find the solution for the town…and thwart the bad guys
* What Wyatt and Cheyenne for a living
* Being able to return to Blue Hollow Falls
* Wondering if Tory will get a story of her own AND wondering if perhaps some of the people working on Wyatt’s live-stream will get stories of their own.

What I did not like:
* The corrupt councilmen
* Having to say goodbye to the group till the next book comes out

Thank you to NetGalley a nd Kensington-Zebra for the ARC – This is my honest review.”

5 Stars

UNDER A FIREFLY MOON is quite possibly the most favorite second-chance romance I’ve written and I hope you’ll love it, too!

Happy reading, Donna

Happy Release Day for “SANTA IN A KILT!!”

Woo hoo!!! It’s Happy Release Day! SANTA IN A KILT is out today as a stand alone e-novella! I’m excited that readers can now obtain Shea’s story separately and with a spiffy new cover to boot!.

This novella was originally published as part of my Hot Scots series in the UNWRAPPED anthology (which is still available for all of you print-preferred readers!)

    

If you like a contemporary Scot in a kilt (and who doesn’t?) SOME LIKE IT SCOT and OFF KILTER, the other two stories in the series, both full length books, are also available!  (Click on title links to learn more about those books and for handy purchase links!) 

Here’s the back cover copy for Santa in a Kilt…

On the wild dunes of a Scottish Isle, mistletoe and mischief are the best way to heat up a holiday best shared by two . . .

The wind-whipped December sea air of the isle of Kinloch invigorates Kira MacLeod as she sets out to tame rugged Shay Callaghan. The Scottish bachelor may be as wary of a wedding ring as a snowman is of the hot sun, but it’s no secret how he looks at her—as if she were the only woman in the world. 

Now, with the encouragement of the canny islanders, and watching two of their best friends tie the knot in a romantic winter wedding, Kira will ignite Shay’s heart—and weave the perfect Celtic Christmas to say aye do . . .

HAPPY NEW RELEASE DAY!

I’m so excited to announce that LAVENDER & MISTLETOE is HERE!!!

LAVENDER & MISTLETOE is a fun, e-novella length holiday story, perfect for taking a few minutes out of your day to sink into another world. In this case, my world of Blue Hollow Falls, set right in the area where I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Here’s the back cover copy for this story.

This Christmas, small-town Blue Hollow Falls will work big holiday magic for two people who have researched everything but love . . .

Avery Kent needs a project. The busy brain that earned her two PhDs before the age of eighteen is fascinated by the home she’s created with her three friends in Blue Hollow Falls, but the farm and the tearoom are running like clockwork now. As the holiday season approaches, it’s time for Avery to dive into one of her last uncharted research topics: love. Not for herself, of course; for her friend, Chey! But a closer look at the handsome young veterinarian Avery has chosen for this romantic equation has her wishing for gifts she never thought she wanted . . .

Another former child prodigy, Ben Chandler is more like Avery than she ever imagined. His intellect is a perfect match for hers—and everything else about him attracts her in ways that send delicious tingles down her spine. But a relationship? That’s something Avery will need to analyze—unless her friends can help Ben convince her that romance is more magic than science, and that a good old-fashioned kiss under the mistletoe is the perfect way to open her heart to the possibility of the greatest gift of all .

I have so enjoyed writing all of the stories in this series, but this one was a special favorite as I had the chance to delve deeper into the stories of the women who run Lavender Blue Farm and Tea Room, first introduced in LAVENDER BLUE.

Haven’t read any of the Blue Hollow Falls books? Not to worry! All of the stories stand alone and can be read in any order. If you’re curious about the series though, you can check out the first book, also titled BLUE HOLLOW FALLS, and start from the beginning.

You can pick up your very own copy of LAVENDER & MISTLETOE here:

As we look toward the upcoming holidays, I hope your autumn season is filled with family, friends, enjoying walks in the crisp fall air, watching the changing leaves, sipping some hot mulled cider, and, of course, curling up with a good book!

Happy reading!

It’s Here! It’s Here!

Hello Happy Readers!

It’s one of my most favorite days of the year. The day of a new book release! I’m excited and happy to announce that THE BAKESHOP AT PUMPKIN & SPICE is NOW available!! Check out this gorgeous cover!

Every autumn, Moonbright, Maine, is the picture of charm with its piles of crisp leaves, flickering jack-o-lanterns . . . and a touch of the sweetest kind of sorcery.

Witches, goblins, the occasional ghost—they’re all sure to be spotted at the annual Halloween parade, where adults and children alike dress in costume to celebrate Moonbright’s favorite holiday. And no place has more seasonal spirit than Bellaluna’s Bakeshop, a family business steeped in traditional recipes, welcoming warmth—and, legend has it, truly spellbinding, heart-melting treats . . .

Between good-natured Halloween tricks, frothy pumpkin lattes, and some very special baked goods, for three Moonbright residents looking for love—whether they know it or not—the spookiest thing will be how magical romance can suddenly be . . .

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All three stories in this anthology take place in Moonbright, Maine and happen at the same time. Kate, Allyson, and I had SUCH fun putting this anthology together. Also? There are recipes!! You can’t have a bakeshop book without recipes!

THE BAKESHOP AT PUMPKIN & SPICE is available in trade print, e-book, AND audio (I know! So much fun!) Here are some handy links so you can go snag a copy for yourself:

I hope you’ll go grab something pumpkin-spicy to sip on, curl up, and take a trip to Moonbright, Maine with us! Happy reading!

Lavender Blue ~ Now in Audio!

Hello Happy Readers!

I’m excited to announce that the audiobook for LAVENDER BLUE is finally available. YAY!!!  Narrated by the awesome Amanda Ronconi, who has done the entire Blue Hollow Falls series, I hope you’ll give it a listen!

And check out the lovely cover Tantor Audio created for the audio release!

Here’s the back cover copy:

In the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains lies a small town with a big heart—and a chance to begin again . . .

When Hannah Montgomery buys a lavender farm in Blue Hollow Falls with three friends, she’s creating a life she never imagined—one she hopes will honor the memory of the sweet young son she tragically lost years ago. Standing on the porch of the sprawling farmhouse, looking out on row upon row of those lush purple plumes, Hannah is ready to embrace this fresh, new start . . .

Then she meets Wilson McCall. The stonemason hired to fix their crumbling chimneys and leaky roof is quieter than most folks in the Falls. Hannah’s not surprised to learn the widower struggles with his own grief. Who could blame her if she finds joy in making Will laugh again, or if she feels a poignant kinship when she sees him with his teenaged son?  But her deepening friendship with Will reminds Hannah that there’s a part of her that still needs to heal—awakening a tender yearning to have a life that isn’t just good enough, but lived fully—even if that means taking risks once more . . .
