As a part of this blog tour ,I'm posting an excerpt from The Willows:Haven.
Haven't heard of it ?
Here's a blurb for you....
When tragedy strikes, seventeen year-old Ashton Blake sets out on a cross-country road trip, leaving the comforts of Malibu for the mountains of Kentucky. Along the way, she encounters Gabe Willoughby—the mysterious drifter with eyes like the sea and a knowing smile. Getting to know Gabe raises questions about her past. But no secret can be buried forever, and Ashton soon finders herself in a world where water is air and myth becomes reality.
Just as Ashton comes to accept her newfound heritage, she’s summoned to fulfill a treaty laid down centuries before — a treaty that will divide her love and test her loyalty. In the end, her future isn’t her biggest concern, her humanity is. To run may mean war, but is she strong enough to stay?
Print Release Date of September 30, 2011 by Soul Fire Press; ebook release expected the week of September 19, 2011.

“Ashton, you don’t understand what you’ve done to me.” He sighed, his scent swirling around me once more. “Everything has changed now. I’ve never felt this way before. You overwhelm me.”
My heart swelled as passion stirred inside me, warring with reason and responsibility. Gabe’s turquoise eyes burned into mine, swaying my resolve, till finally I gave way to what I knew we both wanted.
My breath came in a gasp as my arms wound around his neck, and I kissed him .

More About the Author:
Hope Collier was born in Harlan County, Kentucky. Growing up in the Appalachia, she quickly learned that a good imagination — along with the ability to outrun the neighbor’s cantankerous dog — was essential to survival. Hope wrote and illustrated her first book at the age of six and never stopped writing. She now lives in central Kentucky with her husband, two daughters, and a menagerie of pets. When not spending time with her imaginary friends, you’re likely to find her stalking other writers on Twitter or searching out new ways of fitting square pegs into round holes.
