Paige Warren is sure she’s come to terms with her impending divorce, until she wakes up in bed with her soon-to-be ex, Danny. Worse yet, the bed belongs to Stacey, the sexual surrogate Paige and Danny have been sleeping with for months -- and Stacey’s not there.

As much as Paige tries to deny it, she soon realizes she’s still in love with Danny. Now she’s torn between him and the woman who holds them together. Should she risk hurting Stacey to rekindle a monogamous relationship with the man she once thought she’d spend the rest of her life with, or should she learn from past experience?

Danny is a sensual, erotic novella following one woman's struggle between a love she thought was over and a relationship that's barely begun.

Interview with Margo Anne Rhea
What have you had published?
DANNY will be my first published work. I have a few trunked pieces, but this is my first that made it past the editing stage. 
What genre(s) of book do you write?
I really enjoy writing romance and erotic romance, specifically contemporary, but I have a few ideas rolling around for other genres.
What inspired you to write your first book?
Well, the first book I ever tried to write was a junk piece about a teenage girl in mid-fifteenth century Ireland, who is married off to save the family farm. I’d been reading a series of nonfiction books about Ireland and started daydreaming about what it would be like to have lived in that era. I never finished the book, but maybe I will someday.
How long did it take you to write “Danny”?
From start to finish, Danny took about a week to write. Don’t worry, I’m not some crazy, stay-up-all-night, pull-my-hair-out-until-it’s-finished writer. Okay, maybe I am, but Danny isn’t very long. That’s the only reason it was done so quickly. Editing before I started querying, that took like a million years.
What is the working title of your next book(s)?
As we speak, I’m putting the finishing touches on a book I’m calling AGAINST THE RULES
When and why did you begin writing?
I’ve always written-- stories, poetry, diaries, love letters to teenage heart throbs (when I was a teenager of course!).  But it wasn’t until I was in college that I decided to pursue it with any real seriousness.
Do you self publish your books or go through an agency? 
Neither. I queried (and was accepted by) Entranced Publishing, who takes unagented submissions.
What part of writing books do you find the hardest?
Finishing. I’m always coming up with new story ideas, and whenever a new idea comes to me, I have a hard time buckling down and finished my WIP before starting the new story.
What do you do in your spare time?
Procrastinate. Well, that and go to the beach. I like watching man-watching. I also enjoying karaoke, movies, girls’ nights out, and shoe shopping. I try to keep busy. 
Who is your favourite author?
Johanna Lindsey – I own every single one of her books.
What’s your favourite genre to read?
It’s a tie between historical romance and paranormal romance, depending on whether I’m feeling whimsical or kick-butt.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Keep at it and always be open to feedback. It’s hard to hear what might be wrong with our work, but you can take constructive criticism and use it to make your work stronger. And always keep writing, no matter how discouraging it may seem. Every ounce of feedback you get, every word you pen, makes you a stronger writer.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I’d like to add a great big thank you for having me on your blog. I’m so thrilled to be able to share my answers to these great questions!
My Opinion of "Danny"
I would not usually read this type of story. I prefer erotica between two people M/F, whereas, this is based around an F/M/F relationship. It was the cover that drew me towards this book more than anything else. And yes, I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but in this case I’m glad I did.
In just 38 pages Margo Anne Rhea has managed to create realistic characters that you can’t help but feel for and an original story line that not only keeps you hooked but also makes you read the story for a second and third time.
Also, unlike many erotic short stories that I have read, the writing flows and it is written well.
I would highly recommend this story.
(4/5 Stars)
