Two years after her husband’s death, Kelly believes her romantic life is done. Until she reconnects with her girlhood crush on social media, and as fate would have it, he lives across the street.

James is over the whole true-love thing. His grasping ex-wife tore that belief out of him, when she left him for a rich, old man. Then he finds out his first love moved to San Diego too, and their attraction burns as hot as ever.

What they don’t know is that Fate didn’t bring them together – the Guardian Angel Corps did, led by two unlikely Cupids – Kelly’s late husband and Zane, a rough and tumble, 19th century cowboy. When a Fallen Angel decides to tear Kelly and James apart, cherubs and harps aren’t going to cut it, and Zane’s unique skills might be just what they need to get a second chance at their first love.

Questions to Donna about ANGELS FLY:

This sounds like a great romance on its own, but you’ve made it unique by including angels to manipulate their fate. What inspired you to do that?

I wanted to add a paranormal aspect to this story, and I liked the idea of angels watching over us. My dad passed away twenty years ago this July, and it makes me happy to think that he’s still keeping a watchful eye on me!

You live in Maryland, but the book is set in California. Why California?

My brother-in-law lives on a houseboat in San Diego, and I fell in love with the city when we visited him!

Who made the gorgeous cover for this book? It’s definitely an eye catcher.

Thank you so much. The amazing Debbie Taylor designed this cover, and I just love it! My husband had the image put on a cellphone case for me, and printed on a canvas, which is stretched over a frame that hangs over my computer. Debbie also did the cover for my second book with The Wild Rose Press, A Sweeter Spot, and it’s another beauty! She does a great job of capturing the spirit and tone of a book!

She flashed a bright smile at her old friend,“I sent a friendrequest to Susie Davidson, and I want to see if she’s responded.”
“Susie Davidson,” Grace’s voice dripped with disdain, “we didn’t badger you into doing this so you could reconnect with Susie Davidson.”
“Hey, what’ve you got against old Susie? She was an integral part of our nerd squad in high school,” David said. “Right, Kel?” 
When she didn’t reply, he glanced over at his old friend to see her frozen at her computer, all the color drained from her face. “Kel, what’s wrong?”
“I didn’t hear from Susie, but I did get a message from James Flynn,” shewhispered.
David jumped to his feet and peeked over her shoulder at the computer screen. “Yummy James Flynn from Rye?”
Grace snickered, “Sounds like a sandwich. I’ll have a Yummy James Flynn on rye. Hold the mayo.”
Kelly and David swung their heads in unison to stare at her.
“What? It’s not my fault you two come from a town named after a bread.”
David shook his head mournfully and intoned, “Californians.”
“Native, baby.”  The blonde woman grinned playfully, “And don’t you New England Yankees forget it.”
“What does he say, Kel?” David asked with interest.
Kelly gulped, “He wanted to get in touch and maybe meet for a drink.”  She twisted her head to look up at David, her eyes huge on her pale face, “He lives here, David. In San Diego.”

Author Bio:
My career has been a winding road. I worked in the business world for years, got my MLS and worked in a school library, and am now living my dream as an author. I love to read and write contemporary and fantasy romance. I live in Maryland, with my husband, who is my real-life romance hero. We both enjoy traveling to visit our far-flung family and friends, and spending time on the beach with an umbrella drink and a good book.

Questions for Donna about Donna:

Do you have any old manuscripts collecting dust in your closet?

I sure do! I have the first two books of a high fantasy, romance trilogy packed away in a box. They are the first books I wrote, so they would definitely need polishing up, but I always intended to work on them and try to get them published. I love the characters and the story!

About how many books would you guess you own?

I can’t even begin to fathom a guess! My husband loves books and reads even more than I do. We have books on shelves, piled, and stacked, all over our house! Not to mention the ones on my Kindle!

How did you meet your real life hero?

Before I was an author, and before I was a librarian…so TWO careers ago…I was an Account Executive, and my now-husband was my client. It probably is a story I should write some day! Although, it would have to be historical fiction, because technology and communications methods have changed so much since then! Email was in its very early stages, and my cell phone was the size of Texas! Now we’d be texting and Facetiming, but back then, we had to send photographs to each other via snail-mail. When I was leaving that job to get married and move away, another client asked whom I was marrying. I told him it was another one of my clients, he said, “I didn’t realize that was a service you offered.” Lol!

It’s been a delight getting to know you, Donna, and hearing about ANGELS FLY.
