About the Author
Ashlyn Chase describes herself as an Almond Joy bar. A little nutty, a little flaky, but basically sweet, wanting only to give her readers a satisfying experience. She holds a degree in behavioral sciences, worked as a psychiatric RN for 15 years and spent a few more years working for the American Red Cross. Most authors, whether they know it or not, have a theme—something that unifies their whole booklist. Ashlyn’s identified theme has to do with characters who reinvent themselves. After all, she has reinvented herself many times. She is a multi-published, award-winning author of humorous erotic and mainstream paranormal romances, represented by the Seymour Agency. She lives in beautiful New Hampshire with her true-life hero husband who looks like Hugh Jackman with a salt and pepper dye job, and they’re owned by a spoiled brat cat.

Chase's characters are believable as is the story line. It grabs your interest from the very start with an unusual beginning. Who'd have thought "listening in" on a therapy session could be interesting and funny?
Unbeknown to Lisette, she is lucky to have found one of a very few, if not the only, psychiatrist who believes in the paranormal. Lisette is an immortal who is not adjusting well to living in the twenty-first century. She thinks it's just her luck to have a gorgeous and sexy therapist when she wants to end it all.
Colin is somewhat dismayed to find he desires Lisette inappropriately -- she's his client. But he is drawn to her emotionally and physically. When he tries to get her interested in a hobby to try to get her zest for life back, will it be her saving grace or ruin a budding romance?
I love the humor in this. There is also a fun reference to the 1987 movie Fatal Attraction starring Glenn Close and Michael Douglas -- ya know, the one with the rabbit.
I'd love to see this turned into a series and read about what kind of trouble Lizette gets into on her journey to getting more acclimated with this century and beyond.
Paranormal romance fans should adore this. Put this on your wishlist, or better yet go buy this, today.

Immortally Yours explores the reality I always thought would happen to someone who could never grow old or die. What happens when you've seen and done everything? Or at least feel like you have? You end up like Lizette, in a psychologist's, depressed, and desperate for a chance from the inability to connect with anyone, for fear that they'll discover your secret. Fortunately for her, the Doc is sexy as sin and actually believes her story. From the unusual start of this story I knew this wasn't going to be your average tale about an immortal. It was stepped in realism, with interesting bits of history, and an ample dose of heat.
Dr. McSexy aka, Colin is intelligent, compassionate and smitten. The spark that existed between them burned white hot, but he's decent enough to wait until she's no longer his patient to make his move. While he had the makings of a wonderful hero, I felt like he was too good to be true. I never really understood what he saw in Lizette besides her body and maybe vulnerability he subconsciously wanted to take away. Yes, I know I'm psycho analyzing a head doctor, but in this case it applied.
Lizette was rather harsh and brisk. It was stated this was because she was French, yet, for me it took away from the character. I wanted to like her but couldn't. In the end I did enjoy Immortally Yours, but I would've liked to get a glimpse at the heroine's more sensitive side. If you're looking for a story that'll make you think , give a glimpse into an interesting past and heat up the screen this is the perfect pick for you.
Lizette is a 300 year old woman overwhelmed by 21 century technology and looking for a way to end her mortality. Colin is the psychiatrist she finds to help her end her life. Instead they find each other and the best reason to live. Their relationship isn't without challenges and their interaction were well paced and exciting.
All of us wish for our soul mate to walk through the door and we would both know it and move forward with it. Some are lucky to find that. Others are desperate to believe that they will. This story helps people believe. She also teaches us that if you love someone enough, you find a way to work it out and make it work.. The characters are well thought out, with interesting individual characteristics. With the perfect mix of action, humor, romance and a well described hunk this book makes for the perfect escape read.
