Welcome to day two of the Restless Hearts Virtual Tour with Yahrah St. John! This will be a week full of fun and prizes so follow the tour each day and don’t miss out on your chance to win. Let’s get started!
As an author, what are some of your biggest pet peeves, regarding authors, books and readers?
My biggest pet peeve would be that e-book industry has created this thirst for books to be delivered quickly. So readers expect authors to deliver a new book every 3 months. A lot of hard work goes into creating a book and if you rush to get a book out, you risk not putting out your best work. So yes, readers have to wait sometimes for a book to come out, but I promise, if you want a well-written book, it’ll be worth the wait.
What song best describes your work ethic?
A really hard question. The best answer I could come up with was Beyoncé’s Independent Women. The reason I chose this song was because I’ve been on my own since I was 18 when I learned I would have to put myself through college without any financial support from my family. I had to learn how to be self-sufficient and take care of myself and I’ve been doing so ever since. The success I’ve achieved has been through hard work, dedication and the sheer determination of my will to succeed and not fail. So I celebrate myself as an Independent Woman.
If you invited some of your biggest fans to your house for dinner, what would you feed them?
Hmmm…that would depend on the crowd. I’m comfortable cooking gourmet recipes like my Chicken Vesuvio and Orange Duck to traditional soul food like Fried Chicken, Macaroni Cheese and greens. It depends on my audience.
A restless heart…
Ruggedly sexy bull rider CALEB HART is a proud of his carefree lifestyle. He’s thrown when he meets debutante ADDISON MONTGOMERY at a bachelor party in Vegas and has an overwhelming desire to protect her. Powerless to resist her sweet allure, they embark on a passionate, commitment-free affair. Caleb never expected a woman could break through his defenses, but Addison does – until a fall off a bull leaves him temporarily paralyzed.
ADDISON falls hard for the smoldering cowboy with the bedroom eyes who makes her feel like a woman. She’s devastated when Caleb pushes her away. She retreats, vowing to start her life anew. She never expected years later, Caleb would reel her back in with his sizzling hot kisses, reawakening the passion they once shared. Can she trust her heart again or is she headed for heartbreak?
