Today is our stop for The Willows Haven Blog Tour
Here’s an interview with Gabe
*grins* Well, if you take into account Ashton’s car was stuck in a ditch, and she ultimately proceeded to run over my motorcycle, I found her absolutely endearing.
2) Do you believe fate brought you together, or something else?
My culture is steeped in fate, so I trust our meeting was meant to be in one way or another. I will tell you this though … I believe I was in the right place at the right time for fate to play its role in life.
3) When did you first realize you had feelings for her?
How can anyone meet Ashton and not feel something for her?
4) You’ve known Ash’s family for a long time. Is it weird having feelings for her?
To be honest, the first day I got into her car, that’s all I could think of. That I’d once been so close to her family. But the more I got to know Ash, the less it mattered … it just felt right.
5) What do you like most about Ash?
The thing I admire most about Ashton is her gift of compassion.
6) What do you think she likes most about you?
*laughs* I think that’s one you’d better ask her.
7) What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is that I can’t protect her. You can’t imagine what it’s like … knowing that you’re putting the one you love in danger for just loving you. It’s beyond a nightmare.
8) What is your best/favorite memory with Ash?
We were driving in the car, and she was staring out the window … just staring, mindlessly humming Louis Armstrong of all people. *smiles wistfully* I don’t think she even realized she was doing it. But her contentment, seeing the peace in her eyes, it just melted me.
9) If there was one thing you could change in life, what would it be?
I’d change the circumstances surrounding Ashton’s life. I would give her the family she never had the chance to know. And she would’ve never been lied to. Ash deserves better.
10) How would you describe yourself before you met Ash? Has she changed you in any way?
I’ve always accepted that things are what they are, but Ashton caused me to see the world in a different light. I quickly came to understand that my whole life boiled down to a system of beliefs, that I was living the way others expected me to. Ash gave me the courage to step outside the boundary of obligations and face the world head-on with a new perspective. …She taught me to fight for love.

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?
