Lyndell Williams is stoking some more flames of romance as usual with the launch of her new novel, ‘My Way to You’. This time, Lyndell tackles the theme of irresistible attraction between a pro-Black social justice writer and a successful Asian lawyer, and how love gets stronger as distances grow smaller. Will the world step in and tear them apart?
Lawyer Simon Young has an eye for his best friend’s sister Regina, a social justice writer and activist. Simon usually keeps his relations with women casual, but Regina is different. Her beauty intrigues him beyond measure, but he must hide it from his best friend so as not to ruin their friendship. Regina falls deep into the flames of passion that Simon has lit inside her. Though savvy and cautious, Regina plunges into a torrid affair with Simon, knowing the wrath it will invoke in her brother, fans and followers. At stake is whether the rest of the world will accept their popular pro-Black blogger dating an Asian man. Will Simon and Regina’s love survive the test of their lives?
“For me, romance novels are more than entertainment; they demonstrate how we explore and apply an essential human sentiment—love!” says Lyndell Williams.
