It is a pleasure for me to introduce author Yolanda Ashton to my blog today.  Her novel, A Will for Love, is released today!

KH:         Welcome, Yolanda, to my blog today. Congratulations as well for today is release day for your book! I also want to say that your avatar is one of the best that I have seen. Very cool!

YA:         Happy to be here. Thanks for having me.

KH:         What is the genre and heat level of A Will for Love?

YA:         The heat level is very sensual. Let’s see, it could fit into a few romance genres like Contemporary, Multicultural and a bit New Adult.


A Will for Love Blurb

Lanya gave her love and trust to a man, only to find out their relationship was a lie. Shattered,  she decides she’s never going to give her heart to anyone again. But when her ex, Mikael LockRidge, offers her a proposition she can’t refuse, Layna finds being with him makes it hard to resist the sensual pull between them.

Blackmailed to commit an act that still haunts him, Mikael accepts his current loveless relationship as karma. But when he receives unexpected help from the grave, Mikael realizes he wants back what he lost —  he just has to convince the ex he gutted to let him back in her life and her heart.

Author Bio

Yolanda Ashton is the alter ego of a thirty-something mother of three. Throughout daylight hours she’s an educational professional and during the nights (when she’s not daydreaming, reading and/or  watching vampire drama) she’s writing, hanging with family and trying to recover from a day spent with middle school students.

My two favorite things to do in the world (outside of family) are reading and writing-I fell in love with words at an early age. I love creating worlds with them and entering new worlds designed by them. Throughout my life I’ve always felt the epitome of a great “me” day is one spent reading a book or creating one.

Things I love:

The Vampire Diaries (Damon Salvatore…need I say more)

The Originals (Loving Klaus in all his bad-ass glory)



Pop music

Marvel Super Hero Movies

Favorite Genres to Read:

Romance (New Adult, and Paranormal)

Young Adult

A Will for Love is scheduled for release on February 11th. Visit my site for buy links and other info.

KH:         Briefly explain the inspiration behind your novel.

YA:         I love to read second chance romances.

KH:         I think your readers will be able to relate to that sentiment, that  romance is often about forgiveness and second chances. What will readers love most about your hero/heroine?

YA:         That the hero realized he messed up a good thing and tries to make amends. The heroine makes him work for it.

KH:         Do you have a favorite moment or scene from your book that you would to share?

YA:         I love the emotional grittiness of the break up scene. It’s too long to share here but it happens early in the story.

KH:         What words best describe your book?

YA:         Payback is a b*&h!

KH:         Love it! Do you have any upcoming events that you would like to share with readers?

YA:         Not yet but keep checking my site for upcoming contest info.

KH:         Where can readers best reach you and find buy links for your book?
