Book Description/Synopsis:  

Destiny brought them together. Their love might tear them apart.

~Ryleigh~
“Maybe when I woke, this would no longer be a nightmare with crazy wolves and strange creatures masquerading as men.”
The men who almost kidnapped me will stop at nothing to get me back. I’m no damsel in distress, but who could turn down a sexy white knight… or two?
Lukas and Darian have a few secrets. They aren’t exactly human. Neither are the men trying to find me.
The Intarans might look like humans, but they’re not of this world. For millennia, they have starred in our myths, legends, and nightmares. They’re trapped on Earth… and they want to use me to open the portal home.
I had planned my future carefully, but nothing could’ve prepared me for nightmares come to life, or falling in love.

~Lukas~
“I’m done waiting. We both know what you want. It’s the same thing I want. And I always get what I want.”
From the moment I saw her, I knew Ryleigh was my mate. I didn’t care that she was human; I wasn’t exactly pure-blooded myself. My secrets were unraveling fast, threatening to destroy those I loved.
I’d protect her with my life, but when the truth comes out, will she stay?

~Darian~
“Don’t you fantasize about how it would be between us? I know I do.”
I was a broken man, shattered by years of torture and pain. My family called me traitor; my allies feared me. Hell, I barely trusted myself.
Lukas saved me, and I loved him too much to ever cause him pain. Before Ryleigh came into our lives, he was everything I ever wanted.
Ryleigh saw the man I might’ve been. She was the only woman I could’ve ever loved. Hell, I wanted her and Lukas both.

***This full length novel is part of a series, and best read in order, but you get a HEA with no cliffhangers.***

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Ryleigh is quickly thrown into a world she never knew existed. Her head’s set on finding her missing friend, but her heart is being torn in two different directions and it’s an emotional craziness as she gets closer to both Lukas and Darian.

Lukas is a bisexual Dominant who seems to like to control every situation. He even has dreams that give him glimpses of certain outcomes, but nothing gave away the predicament he found himself in.

Darian has a terror filled past and it has left him carrying many emotional scars. One being the fact that he’s openly gay and in love with his best friend, but when he feels drawn to a woman for the very first time why oh why is it the one his best friend seems connected too. Talk about a sucky situation. But being him does have its perks…he can shape shift!

“If it were anyone else I’d fight for you, Lia. You’re special. But I can’t hurt him. Not like that.”

The story alternates between three main points of view (Ryleigh, Lukas, and Darian) with an occasion glance into the enemies mind thrown in here and there. Throughout most of the story each point of view continues where the other left off keeping the story moving, but toward the end there’s a part that’s retold from each of their point of views and it felt like a wrench being thrown into the smoothly working machine.

Destined is filled with secrets, intrigue, and hot kinky sex. It combines aliens and myths to produce a race of very interesting people. It’s captivating and I look forward to seeing what happens next.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: It probably shouldn’t have been funny considering it was basically a hostage situation but when Darian went to save Ryleigh it was quite funny.

“Stay still! Pretend I’m not here.”

“But, I wanna see.” She pouted.

“Yeah, about that. I can’t change with my clothes. Being cold ain’t got nothing on standing at four inches and freezing. I’d rather keep my dignity, thank you very much. No peeking.”
