A busy wife and mother of three (two daughters and the family dog), Donna Alward believes hers is the best job in the world: a combination of stay-at-home mom and romance novelist.
An avid reader since childhood, Donna always made up her own stories. She completed her Arts Degree in English Literature in 1994, but it wasn’t until 2001 that she penned her first full-length novel, and found herself hooked on writing romance. In 2006 she sold her first manuscript.
Donna loves being back on the East Coast of Canada after nearly twelve years in Alberta where her Harlequin career began, writing about cowboys and the west. She’s a two-time winner of both the Bookseller’s Best Award and the Colorado Award of Excellence, and a 2012 RITA finalist.
Donna loves to hear from readers; you can contact her through her website at www.donnaalward.com, visit her facebook page, or through her publisher.

Katie Buick and maths geek Ric Emerson have not seen one another since high school. Now Katie need Richard to take her seriously - he is her last chance to get the finance she needs for her new restaurant. But once Ric finds out that his attraction to Katie is still very much alive, he wants more than just a finance deal. He wants a partnership.
All they have to do is learn to trust one another and not succumb to their mutual attraction long enough to focus on the work. But Katie is terrified of failure and has been burnt too many times before. She is determined to protect herself by rejecting Ric before he rejects her as being unworthy of him.
The roller coaster journey these fabulous characters travel before they can be together is a great read that will have you on the edge of your seat. 5 stars.
