Release day: An Opportunity Seized

13 February 2015

Today is the official release of An Opportunity Seized by Donna Gallagher (ebook, Totally Bound). Here’s the blurb:

An Opportunity SeizedTwo unforeseen moments in time— One brings them together. The other is a danger so real it could tear them apart.

Antoinette ‘Toni’ Grimaldi prefers to keep out of the spotlight, blend in with the crowd and experience life the same as the bulk of the population. Being a mining magnate’s daughter is a difficult persona for her to uphold. She just doesn’t fit in with high society standards, always managing to say something inappropriate or trip over her own feet at the worst possible moment. Resulting in that look of disappointment and embarrassment her parents inevitably wear whenever she’s around.

Meeting a handsome stranger who comes to her rescue and asks her out on a date is so much more than Toni could have ever hoped for on her dream holiday – one she is surprised her parents have even permitted her to take alone. Her fairy-tale moment is short lived though, when Toni discovers the stranger has been hired by her family to follow her every move – under the guise of keeping her safe.

Jason finds he is drawn to Antoinette, she is nothing like the socialite, he was expecting to shadow around London’s nightclubs at all. After an awkward first meeting he convinces Toni that there is more to his interest in her than just as her bodyguard. To his surprise his attraction for the soft spoken, thoughtful woman grows, despite his usual reluctance to commit to any kind of relationship.

A disaster at one of the family owned mines and a string of death threats forces Toni to return home and her need for a bodyguard becomes a life and death reality.

Donna dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

You can find inspiration in the strangest of circumstances—well at least I did for my new release, An Opportunity Seized. The idea for a ‘first meeting’ was sparked from an actual event. This awkward real life situation arose while my family and I were holidaying in the UK back in 2013. At the time we did promise my son that we would never speak of it again—but it’s okay, he is still too young to read erotic romance so what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him. I’m also very excited to say that this book does not include any sportsmen. Yes, it is true I’ve spread my genre wings so to speak and moved away from my beloved sports romance. Haven Security series books are still contemporary erotic but with romantic suspense elements.

You can find out more about this book at Donna’s website and buy it at Totally Bound.

    Oh I love a good suspense with a lashing of romance on top, and I’m intrigued about this unusual ‘meet cute’. Best of luck with the release Donna.

      He seems to be dealing with it a little better now Cassandra 😉
      I reminded him that there are many more embarrassing moments in his life that I’ve never mentioned, so he should be thankful. I failed to point out these times would probably make appearances at his 21st!
