One of the fun things about being me is that I get to talk to authors about their work. And I enjoy sharing those conversations here at the Waterworld Mermaid blog. Today, I’m sharing some of my chat with Siera London. She has a new release coming out TODAY, March 31. So, please take a few minutes to read below and learn more about Siera (a member of the WRW-DC RWA Chapter) and her debut novel.
Siera London, a former naval officer, is a writer of contemporary romance and women’s fiction. A native Floridian, her love of coastal towns and bustling cities shines through in her sassy and sexy storytelling. Currently she resides in the Washington, D.C. area with her husband and a color patch tabby that has free reign of the house.
Denny: Tell me about your book?
Siera: I’d love to! CHASING AVA is book one in the Bachelors of Shell Cove series. It’s a contemporary, multicultural romance set in the beautiful coastal city of Shell Cove, FL.
Ava Walters is an emotionally wounded nurse struggling to mend her shattered life. Logan Masters is a broken man pursing his future at any cost. They never expected to find redemption in each other’s arms, but one night changes both their lives, and there’s no undoing the chain reaction of their night together.

Denny: What do you love about her hero?
Siera: Logan has the right balance of push and pull in his relationship with Ava. He doesn’t allow her to avoid making difficult decisions. His unwavering devotion to Ava compels her to make choices about her own destiny.
Denny: What about your hero makes you mad?
Siera: He wants everything now! Logan is an in your face kind of hero. He looks at life through a black and white lens. You are either with him or against him.
Denny: How about your heroine?
Siera: Ava is a passionate and loving woman, but she can’t see these qualities in herself. She doesn’t realize how accomplished she is, in spite of her hurtful past.
Denny: What did your hero say or do that surprised you?
Siera: Logan’s actions surprised me when Ava came into his life. He surrenders to the fact that he loves her and it’s so out of character for him to surrender anything. He surprises her with a two-carat diamond heart pendant. Logan’s words to Ava:
“It’s my heart, Ava. I’m giving my heart to you because I’m yours and you’re mine.”
The whole scene blew my mind.
Denny: What’s coming up next for you?
Siera: I will be at Lady Jane’s Salon in Bethesda, MD on April 11, 2015 at 6 pm. I’ll be reading an excerpt from CHASING AVA.
Also, I’ll be at the Romantic Times Convention in Dallas, TX, May 12-17, 2015. Stop by and say hello at the Military SOS Tribute event or the Meet the Author sessions.

Wow, Logan sounds like an alpha male- my favorite book boyfriends are all Alphas! 🙂 I’m going to have to check Logan out. 😉
Hi Siera! Welcome to the pond! I have to say I love that you answered these questions about your hero and heroine. They sound like two very special people and even through these tiny details, like they make for one very big, hard-earned, great love story. I’ll have to check it out!
Good luck at your Lady Jane Salon reading! Have you been to one before? I was just gonna say if you were nervous at all, don’t be. Those readings and the group of people who attend are all the best people and I promise that when you take a moment to look up, you will find smiling faces staring back at you, loving what you’re reading.
Thank you, Denny, for bringing Siera today.
Thanks for the warm welcome, Carlene. I have attended a Lady Jane Salon reading, but I’m still nervous. The LJS crowd is very supportive and I’m confident there will be no cuts or bruises.
Logan is all kinds of Alpha male hottest! You’ll want him tucked underneath your pillow at bedtime. 😀
