Guest Post: Yasmina Kohl

We'd like to welcome author, Yasmina Kohl, to the Dark Nest today. 

Everyone keeps asking me what I’m reading… honestly not a lot at the moment. I’m so busy with the book tour for Cassandra’s Heart and trying to get Saver’s Savior ready for next month’s release, I just haven’t had much time for my own entertainment. Unless you want to count the 1040-A I just filled out for the IRS? 

 But I thought I might tell you what I HAVE enjoyed in the past. Now my husband would tell you that the list of books is too long and well yeah, it is. But the authors are pretty consistent. 

And because I could never play favorites, I’m going to list them in alphabetical order by first name just for fun of it. 

Anne Douglas 
Carol Lynne 
Elizabeth Jewell 
Isobelle Carmody 
J.K. Rowling 
Jean Auel 
Johanna Lindsey 
Lynsay Sands 
Mary Janice Davidson 
Nora Roberts 
Rachel Bo 
Shawn Hardwick 
Sherrilynn Kenyon 
Stephenie Meyers 

Some of the authors I’ve read over and over again, and will likely keep re- reading their stories. Their stories are just that good. 

Then there are the books that while the authors are great but I don’t care who wrote it, it’s the subject I bought, those are my herbalism books and the books on spirituality. It’s more likely to be the jacket info to get my attention that the name on the book.

Cassandra’s Heart By Yasmina Kohl 

 Cassandra St. James has lost her true love, or she thinks she has. Cassandra's friends are trying to get the empath to learn to live again. 

 James Austin never looked for love because he never thought he'd find it. James just wanted to find a better way of training a shy colt. 

 Neither was looking for the other, but someone decided to put them in each others way. Trying to clear his mind James watches as a sad and lost Cassandra wanders in the park. He knows he should be thinking of Sparks, the colt, but he can only think of the sparks he feels from the brunette. 

 Cassandra knows she needs to move on in her life before her gift of empathy takes too heavy a toll, but she doesn't want to acknowledge the feelings that are stirred by the handsome man in the park. 

 Can they find their way to each other? 

 About The Magical Ways Series 

 To a casual passerby, Magical Ways is a high-end clothing boutique. To its employees and customers, however, it is a family, a good one. 

 Okay, yes, dysfunctional, but there is fun in dysfunctional after all. 

 Five sisters by choice come together and help each other get through the bumps and bruises of life. Along the way they add a brother or two or well, six. 

 A Review By David **** I've just finished this Kindle book, and I greatly enjoyed it. Ms. Kohl tells an engaging story and provides interesting characters (far too many to fully develop in one book, but this whets the appetite for the next installment). The story flows well and makes for an easy read. Two sex scenes are hot, but handled tastefully. I am looking forward to the next book in what I hope will be a lengthy series of stories. 

 A Review by Laurie **** Enjoyed this book and the characters. Will be watching for the rest of the series. 

 A Review by Janus **** A little spice and a little magic. Cassandra's Heart is an easy reading delightful book that you will enjoy. it explores the reintroduction of relationship love after a lost. A totally enjoyable read. I liked it and so will you!

About the Author 

 Yasmina is from a small town in the middle of...naw you know better. Yasmina is originally from Vancouver, WA and then by way of the Navy and college ended up in Grays Harbor County with her husband and her two kids and now the two black cats. Yes, she has two of the furry beasts. 

During the day, she keeps the people happy or tries to anyway. At night, she tries to keep her sanity by escaping aforementioned family to write down what the evil muses have shoved in her brain all day. 

She waits for the graduation of her kids (one imminent and one not so imminent) so that the house will become quite. 

She listens to an eclectic mix of music when she writes, anything from Shinedown to Nora Jones and a little of The Asteroids Galaxy Tour thrown in for the fun of it. 

Her sarcastic sense of humor has and will continue to get her in trouble but hey who cares? 

Yasmina has been writing between cries of MOM and YASMINA for ten years and plans to write for many more. Her first published stories were fanfiction for her favorite TV series but the first story she tried her hand at was Cassandra's Heart now available on,, and soon in print.
