There are no coincidences in life, only Chance and Fate.
Fate tells the tale of a rocky romance between a rock star and a novelist. Rocky, because he wishes it to be.
Tavion Zaire, lead singer of the rock/metal band Persevere, is content to focus on his career, and not the screaming groupies surrounding him. Having been burned in the past, he’s both been there and done that. He even has the tee shirt and jaded heart to prove it.
Devan Reese, an up-and-coming romance novelist, writes of love, but no longer believes in it. Mousey and cautious, she prefers to hide behind her monitor, pounding out the words, rather than taking a chance at living life. She still bears the scars of the last time she’d braved it.
Fate, a troublemaking entity who likes to play matchmaker, decides these two are destined to be together. By drawing on Devan’s writer’s block, he gives her a new muse—Persevere—and with the help of his friend, Chance, he shoves them into the same space to watch the sparks fly.
Devan is fascinated with Tavion and his voice. She calls on her inner-protag for courage, imagining herself as the heroine. Through her character, she finds strength. Through her character, she finds her nerve. And through her character, she braves the first step in closing the distance between herself and the source of her inspiration, leaving Tavion blindsided with curiosity.
But Fate can’t leave it at that—it isn’t challenging enough. Once he maneuvers the two together, he tests their compatibility by tossing in a curveball whenever possible. And it was one such curveball from Tavion’s past that finally stirs up the heartache and fears from hers. Add in the untimely death of Tavion’s friend, Rhys Alexander, a victim of Fate’s arrogance and pride, and their budding romance might never recover.
Author’s Note: This is book two of the Twists of Fate series and runs concurrently with Connected, book one. Although your enjoyment will be heightened by reading Connected first, it is not wholly necessary. It will, however, spoil the plot of Connected if you have not yet read it.
