Guest Post & Giveaway: SOUL SEDUCTION by Lori Toland
Hi Everyone! I am really excited to be the first stop on Lori Toland’s book tour for her new urban fantasy novel Soul Seduction. The new book releases tomorrow, November 29th. It's a wonderful story and I highly recommend you pick up a copy. Today Lori is going to talk about her heroine Ashlee Bennett.
When life throws you curveball…
I love romance. I guess that goes without saying. Otherwise I wouldn’t be writing it. But my focus for years was m/m romance. It’s been my passion since ’99. So when I started writing Soul Seduction, Ashlee showing up threw me for a loop.
At first, I didn’t want to write her story. The tale was too dark and I was working on a different story (my next story from Loose Id tentatively titled The Long Con, which is m/m) but as the attraction and desire developed between Luke and Ashlee, I quickly found myself drawn in by these two characters. Soon I couldn’t wait to write more of their tale, watching as their attraction grew until Luke and Ashlee could no longer deny themselves.
I adore Ashlee because she’s adventurous. After losing her mentor, the woman who protected her as she learned how to kill the demons that plague the darkest catacombs, she picked up her life and moved to England to be with a mentor who lost his slayer. Not long after she arrives, she meets her new neighbor Luke. She’s quite spunky too, rejecting Luke even though she’s never wanted a man this badly before.
But then dreams of Luke start to plague her. Dreams that started from the moment she met Luke. Torn between her duties as a slayer and the direction her heart is pulling her, she may just have to sacrifice her chance at true love to keep living.
So I had to tell her story. I hope you enjoy reading her tale as much as I enjoyed writing this novel.
