INDIEpendance Day Blog Hop- Featuring The Demon Master's Wife

Click the box to take you back to the link list!
A little over a year ago, a woman joined our local RWA chapter. She was a super nice lady, and admitted very hesitantly that she had just self-published her first book. Self-publishing, at the time, was just catching fire, and her experience and success were very intriguing to me. We had talked about the process as a group, but had no real-life examples to study until Donna walked in our door.
Donna has been, to me, one of the most important influences in my self-publishing career. She did not hesitate to talk to us about the steps she's taken in her career, good and bad, and has consistently been a cheerleader to all of us.
I read the first book in her Forced to Serve series several weeks ago, and when the chance came to promote another one of her books, I jumped at it. I chose The Demon Master's Wife, the second book in the series, and man am I glad!
Donna started out as a contemporary romance author, but she's found a wonderful niche in science fiction romance. The Demon Master's Wife was fantastic! Fast paced, tangled plots, and romance to set the pages on fire! I didn't know how she would do transferring genres, but she did freaking awesome! The situations were realistic and evoked a strong emotional response in me, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I can not wait for the third book to come out.
 The Demon Master's Wife. Here's the blurb-

Ania Looren would have chosen death over becoming a demon host, if she’d had a choice. But Captain Liam Synar, master of the Demon of Synar, and her mate, made that decision for her in order to save her life. For the two years of their separation her spiritual gifts have failed her, but Ania has learned that hosting the demon Malachi is to blame. Her spirit grieves for what she has become because evil lives inside her again now and Ania fears the great harm she can cause using the demon’s power. Unfortunately, Liam’s reluctant embrace of being the demon's master, along with his refusal to discuss Malachi with her, leaves Ania facing her destiny alone. Their personal relationship war vacillates between full out conflict and a cease fire, yet she is drawn into becoming one of his crew. Worse, she discovers she is drawn to Liam as well, despite his past rejections and the pain his abandonment caused her. But can she really let the only male she’s ever wanted back into her bed without risking her heart?

While you can read the second book alone, it may be easier to understand them in order, with The Demon of Synar first. Besides, it's only $.99!
I sincerely hope you enjoy this book! Check out Donna's Amazon page here. She's actually put out twelve other books as well this year, so there's plenty to browse through and choose from once you get addicted to her writing like I have. When I grow up, I want to be like Donna. ;-)))
One lucky commenter will win a $5 Amazon gift card, the perfect amount for book 1 and 2 of the series. Imagine that! Open to international participants.
Thanks so much for stopping!!!!

I love SF and I'll be reading this next. I've already read several of Donna's books and have never been disappointed.

I met Donna at an RWA chapter meeting, too--altho probably a month or two after you did, JM. But she is the reason I chose to go indie. And she's always so willing to help and share what she's found about the market and such.

Wishing you all the best with the next genre, Donna!
