A Word from the Author

Author M L Sparrow pictureRed Days is a work of fiction, however, it was based on a time-line of true events, which meant I had to do a lot of research whilst writing. A list of the resources I found most useful can be found at the back of the book, but here are two that are good to check out if you’re interested in the subject of the Taiji dolphin slaughter and the fight to stop it.

The first step would be, of course, the watch The Cove; this award winning documentary was what first drew my attention to what was happening in Taiji and inspired me to write Red Days.This page on the Dolphin Project website is also a great source to answer most of the basic questions – https://dolphinproject.net/campaigns/save-japan-dolphins/frequently-asked-questions/ .

There are so many sites you can check out and they’re all just a Google search away… or you could read Red Days!

She stole his Christmas dinner and left him with a kiss.

Dan Tollinger is having a bad Christmas. His wife lost her battle with cancer and he’s finding it hard to manage his two sons. Busy with his shop he has little time left for them, so having a woman around to keep an eye on them seems like an ideal solution.

Tonya needs premises to run her business after her bakery got damaged in a fire. With a son to bring up on her own, the sensible option is to accept Dan’s job offer to housekeep while putting her business back on the track.

Neither counted on the unexpected warmth and awareness that sprang up between them. Would it be wise to let it kindle to desire and then something more?

Especially when his sons are not ready to accept her in his life.

Book 2 in Christmas romance series, His Christmas Surprise is the story of Jay’s brother Dan. It’s not in continuity with Book 1 and is a standalone romance.
For you if you like to read family oriented romances with a bit of sensuality on the side.




A Word from the Author

Author Summerita Rhayne avatarWith His Christmas Surprise, I have turned ten books old romance author. The Christmas romance series started as a short story meant for anthology, so it was really a ‘germ’ of an idea that multiplied rapidly. In the first book, His Christmas Delight, the hero, Jay suffers from PTSD and doesn’t consider himself Mr. Right for the heroine. Myra has loved and lost, but never thought it could happen again.

His Christmas Surprise is about Jay’s brother. Having lost his wife to cancer and managing his business and kids, Dan has a lot on his plate. Tonya, sunny and joyful, can turn his house into a home. His kids, however, are not ready to accept her.

Besides writing contemporary romances like this series, I also write historical romance set in India. I have published traditionally and won contests with Harlequin and Harper Collins India. I publish independently with Amazon these days.

A Word from the Author

Author Bella Emy pictureI think everyone can relate to “Brokenhearted.” Most people have suffered from the pain that the end of a relationship can bring, but this book goes into so much more. It’s not just about Emily and Bruce’s divorce. It’s about the heartbreak that the death of a family member or even a friend can bring. It’s about the end of one thing and the beginning of another. It’s about dealing with the pain from things that hurt us in life and figuring out how we can get through that same pain and heartache. I feel that “Brokenhearted” will bring everyone that reads it to face his or her feelings and realize that this book is about us all.
