I am the author of contemporary women's fiction/romance The Zanzibar Moon, Kendwa's Secret and Elephant Creek. All set in exotic locations featuring a feisty woman, cool hero, quirky characters, animals and children, plus a fair amount of heat. I'm currently working on a grittier women's suspense fiction and a children's book. I am the Administrative Assistant/HT Design Editor at RWA (Romance Writers of Australia). I love beaches, sunshine, kind people, animals, children, The Roosters and Peanut Butter.
Steamy, sexy, romantic suspense set on the Gold Coast will intrigue and delight. Emma Jarvis has a dilemma — keep dating rock-star handsome Wade or pursue her crush on sexy, silent, probably-married Noah? Noah Cooper and his Down’s Syndrome daughter, Hope, are due for a fresh start. But a car accident propels Emma into their secretive world. Will Noah put his guard down long enough to let love back into his life? Emma finds, convincing Noah of a police conspiracy is one thing. Avoiding combusting when she’s near him is a totally different predicament. Noah has enough problems without falling for delightful, Emma and her lust-inducing cut-off shorts. His wife’s abandonment. Proving his father’s innocence. And Hope, beginning mainstream school where bullies lurk. When Noah learns his dead brother’s, son, Jai is with Emma’s family, he must cut contact with Emma or lose what’s most precious to him. But when Jai and Hope go missing can the adults unite to find the missing children in the Australian bush? Will an old circus elephant be the key to bonding them before it’s too late? The sequel to The Zanzibar Moon brings all three books to a final enthralling, emotional conclusion in a stand-alone story filled with passion and heat.
I loved her latest book Elephant Creek. It is set in Currumbin, so that makes it extra special for me, but as usual Donna has romance, intrigue and a bit of sizzle too with lots of twists and turns. If you haven’t read The Zanzibar Moon and Kendwa’s Secret, read them first and then grab this one. Guys a great idea for a birthday pressie too!!! Every girl should do themselves a favour and read the three books, they are definitely a nice way to spoil yourself and take some time out to let your mind wander……you can order through amazon or contact me and I’ll put you in touch with Donna. - Teresa Gartner - reader
I recommend Elephant Creek for an exciting romance and entertaining holiday read. Set around paddle-boarding an inshore creek at an idyllic Australian beachside. The plot has complications with three generations of family members, an electric romance that overcomes dramatic obstacles, climaxing in a helicopter search and rescue. The story sequels Munro’s book ‘The Zanzibar Moon’. Emma’s mother Ali and her sister continue. Elephant Creek again reveals Donna Munro’s affection for and understanding of Africa and pet animals. The triumph of this book is her portrayal of Hope, who has Downs Syndrome, who is her hot man’s daughter. Although Hope is disabled, Munro’s story embraces her and she is respected by the other characters for what she is: a lovely young girl. Because this reviewer is male and enjoyed reading Elephant Creek, it seems more than chic lit. There are critical feminine perspectives on relationships and just the right amount of sizzling love-making. The book chronicles happiness and heartaches in a close family, like Home and Away, with endearing characters whose interactions are closely observed and authentic. I recommend Elephant Creek for an exciting romance and entertaining holiday read. - Martin Knox, Author
This was a wonderful book. It didn’t seem rushed. This was sweet and steamy, full of romance and passion with great characters that were interesting enough to draw you in.
