Yolanda, thank you for hosting me today.
Q & A with Siera London author of CHASING AVA
Tell us what CHASING AVA is about.
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 pursuing 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.

Enter the world of Shell Cove Medical Center
A world of sacrifice, seduction, and sabotage
Where everybody has a secret…
Ava Walters is a pediatric nurse who doesn’t do relationships. An abusive past has left her wounded, but she is determined to pursue her dream of becoming a Navy Nurse. Ava is in the midst of rebuilding her life when, she is targeted by a sexual harasser who wields the power to destroy her dream before it sets sail.
Logan Masters is an ambitious specialty surgeon whose past is riddled with betrayal. His trust in women is conditional–no secrets and no boundaries. When he comes to Ava’s rescue, there is no denying the spark of attraction. Things get complicated when Logan pursues Ava, rather than the arranged relationship that holds the key to his future.
After years of being alone Ava starts to believe that love is possible under Logan’s skillful touch. But Ava is harboring a secret she doesn’t want exposed. Determined to guard her heart, Ava soon discovers Logan is as focused on winning her heart as she is at shielding it.
When secrets and broken alliances threaten to torpedo both their futures, how will they learn to trust each other and chart a new course to everlasting love?
What do you love about her hero?
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.
What about your hero makes you mad?
He wants everything… yesterday. 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.
How about your heroine?
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.
What’s a quote from your hero that surprised you?
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.”
The whole scene blew my mind.
