A Chnage of Plans

I’m sneaking another post in this week, because I have something special to tell you about. Now, I usually don’t do this type of thing here in this space but this time I just couldn’t help myself.

Today I’m covering the COVER REVEAL for Donna K. Weaver’s debut novel ‘A Change of Plans’. Before we go any farther here it is..

It probably comes as no surprise to you after viewing this cover that the book is Adventure/Romance. It may surprise you to know that I really enjoy Donna's writing in this genre. While I admit that I don’t normally read Adventure/Romance I took a pleasant detour from my normal and read her book mainly because she’s a friend. Well…let me tell you there is something to be said for friendship, BECAUSE I really had a good time reading this story and became fully engaged with the characters.

This is the type of ‘real love story’ that I find it a pleasure to read. While all too often the genre is full of lust and sex, in ‘A Change of Plans’ you will find love (the real deal) and romance (enough to sweep you off your feet) and as to adventure. Well just take a look at the book details and description.

Book Description:
When Lyn sets off on her supposedly uncomplicated and unromantic cruise, she never dreams it will include pirates. All the 25-year-old, Colorado high school teacher wants to do is forget that her dead fiancé was a cheating scumbag. Lyn plans a vacation diversion; fate provides Braedon, an intriguing surgeon. She finds herself drawn to him: his gentle humor, his love of music, and even his willingness to let her take him down during morning karate practices. Against the backdrop of the ship’s make-believe world and temporary friendships, her emotions come alive. 
However, fear is an emotion, too. Unaware of the sensitive waters he's navigating, Braedon moves to take their relationship beyond friendship--on the very anniversary Lyn is on the cruise to forget. Lyn's painful memories are too powerful, and she runs from Braedon and what he has to offer.
Their confusing relationship is bad enough, but when the pair finds themselves on one of the cruise's snorkeling excursions in American Samoa things get worse. Paradise turns to piracy when their party is kidnapped and Lyn's fear of a fairytale turns grim. Now she must fight alongside the man she rejected, first for their freedom and then against storms, sharks, and shipwreck.
Author Bio:

At fifty, Donna decided to study karate and earned her black belt in Shorei Kempo.
After recording city council minutes for twenty years, Donna decided to write something a little longer and with a lot more emotion--and kissing.
