Welcome: KL Hughes

KL HughesSometimes love isn’t exactly blind, but it can be stubbornly myopic.

That’s the premise behind Popcorn Love, the upcoming novel by exciting new Ylva author KL Hughes to be published exclusively with us in September 2015.

Set in the glamorous world of New York City’s fashion elite, Popcorn Love is about finding love in the places you least expect it:

A prominent figure amongst New York City’s fashion elite, Elena Vega is a successful businesswoman and single mother to an adorable three-year-old son, Lucas. Her love life, however, is lacking, as those closest to her keep pointing out. At the persistent urging of her closest friend, Elena reluctantly agrees to a string of blind dates if she can find a suitable babysitter for Lucas.

Enter Allison Sawyer, a free-spirited senior at New York University. Elena is intrigued by Allison’s ability to push her out of her element, and the young woman’s instant and easy connection with a normally shy Lucas quickly earns Allison the job.

After each blind date, Elena returns home to complain to Allison about her lacking suitors. As they bond, Elena begins to realize that the person possessing all the qualities she most desires might just be the woman who has been in front of her the entire time.

The vast difference between the two women’s social statuses, however, may be an obstacle not easily overcome.

KL Hughes comes to Ylva with an avid fan base and a diverse catalogue of works, including the romantic novella Fracture and several poetry collections, most recently, Lessons in Lessening.

It’s a joy to have KL Hughes as part of our Ylva team. Welcome.

    Also read this at Fanfiction.net, and was about to start my 3rd read through when I saw it had gone down. Found this page via a google search. Excited to buy a copy!!! I only see a price for the eBook, but will it also be in print?

      In response to your question: yes, Popcorn Love will be available in paperback, but not until the end of September. Check back then, and thanks for your interest.

    I read this on FF.net and loved it, i was just going to go back for a reread when i saw it was taken down. So i downloaded the book on kindle, it was still every bit as good but i was dissapointed that a part with kathryn (vivian in the book) was taken out where she and elena and nora were discussing allison’s admission in the shower. Still worth it for the read.
