The prequel to The Zanzibar Moon lives up to all its sexy expectations.
Readers loved Kendwa so much they wanted to read about his earlier life. Donna Munro has once again written in an easy-to-read engaging voice. There's plenty of passion in wild exotic settings around the world; from Australia, Borneo, USA, England, Africa to the mysterious island of Zanzibar. What secrets are being kept? Is a secret just a lie?
Sexy crocodile wrangler and wildlife ranger Kendwa Ely’s troubles didn’t begin when he buried his parent; they started long before that. In Africa, he is seven-years-old when the unthinkable happens, and he must stay silent. The years don’t dim the secret. In a constant effort to forget it, he travels the world, wrangling crocodiles in Australia’s Northern Territory, roping live alligators out of rich people’s pools in Florida, fighting for eco-tourism and bedding a constant stream of women.
That is until he meets Sharli Ahu.
Exquisite as a Hindu princess, Sharli has values, humility and beliefs. A resilient, resourceful woman, she doesn’t need a man like Kendwa. Borneo’s orangutans are her priority. But there's something about Kendwa. Even when he stuffs up, there’s something sincere, reliable and kind about him. There are more important things in life than lusting after a wild guy like Kendwa. In the jungles of Borneo, a venomous snake strikes and Sharli may be the only one who can save Kendwa.
Can their love grow, or will the shadow of his secret always be looming? Is it the catalyst for his biggest betrayal yet, or can he save the people he loves most? Can true love survive the secrets people keep?
Is a secret just a lie?
"Kendwa's Secret is even better than The Zanzibar Moon, and I loved that. Twists, turns, secrets, beautiful places, a sexy guy, strong woman and real hot true sex. A delicious read. Thank you." - Valerie Koenecke (Beta reader)
"You've done it again. I don't even have to imagine the settings. The visual is in my head as I read. I feel like I've travelled the globe and endured every emotion. Loved it. I can't wait to relax and read it in book form." - Karen Lane (Beta reader)
Talk about The Zanzibar Moon:
“I am really impressed by the book, you have really done your homework and if I did not l know any better I would have sworn that you have lived in Africa for a period of time. You have captured life here so well with the chaos, the beauty, the nature, even down to the sometimes not so pleasant aromas (haha). The storyline is great and the characters are interesting. I also like how you have put the relevant chapters in the first tense for Alkina and Dr. Don. It lets you get closer to the character I think. I showed some of the Swahili to my colleague and as far as she could tell you were spot on.” – Kerry Zillner (UN worker in Africa)
“You have a lot of content in the book, and the storyline is an interesting ‘Chick Lit’ (over 40s) reminded me of Janet Evanovich series a lot. The mix of dialogue and locations made the book move and the way that the character travelled allowed you to explore lots of options for material. I could tell you had written it - it really came from your soul and your experiences/loves. There is a real mix of chick lit, travel, suspense and tear-jerking.” – Angela Szpojda (owner of 360 Degree Wellness)
“I finished reading The Zanzibar Moon and absolutely loved it, Donna. I didn’t predict the ending either. It’s exotic, funny and full of adventure. It’s also inspired me to visit Zanzibar one day and explore those magical streets.” – Leesa Bennett (volunteer teacher abroad)
“Yesterday I finished reading The Zanzibar Moon. All I can say is wow! What an incredible journey it took me on. Each day I picked it up, I found myself looking forward to what Ali was going to do. I laughed I teared up I squirmed in my seat (lol!). I could relate to being a mother to those beautiful twin girls. If you haven’t already picked up this book, do yourself a favour and do it now!” – Helen James-Doyle (Maginis Bikinis, business owner)
“LOVED IT!!! The Zanzibar Moon takes you on a journey from the familiarity of the Gold Coast to an exotic world far away. You never know what lies ahead or what's right in front of you! Congratulations, Donna on a fabulous novel…I’ve gone on a rollercoaster of emotions. I’ve laughed, cried, empathised, cried again. Seriously Donna, I normally don’t cry. I was so invested in the characters. I can’t wait to tell my friends and family…” – Paige Burrage (teacher’s aide)
