Second-Guessing Fate

I'm super excited about my latest release, and first contemporary, from Carina Press.

I live in the UK now, but the first draft of Second-Guessing Fate was written while I was still living in Cape Town. Actually, it would be more accurate to say it was written somewhere over the skies between Cape Town and Johannesburg. With twin toddlers at home and my company handing me a huge project with not only impossible deadlines, but contracted to a company in Johannesburg, I suddenly found a new haven for my writing time - that regular two-hour flight to and fro between Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Many years later, and many rewrites later, I'm pleased to say this story found a home at Carina Press and releases today!

Can She Outwit Fate?

Gemma is on a collision course with heartbreak. At least, according to the fortune-teller her best friend drags her to see. Gemma doesn't believe a word of it, but when other predictions start to come true, she begins to suspect that gorgeous, gray-eyed Nick is the man foretold to break her heart before she can find her soul mate. Too bad she's never met a man she's wanted more, because now she has to get him to dump her before she falls too hard.

Nick has plans of his own. He's ready to settle down with Ms. Right, and everything points to the beautiful Gemma. He's determined to prove to her that he's the perfect boyfriend—even if she does seem to be trying her best to scare him off…

  1. Just read the first two chapters on your web site! Wow! Love it! Will definitely have to buy it to see where it goes. I adore the psychic theme and how you've woven it in - even in Nick's perspective!

  2. Thank you Amanda!! The fortune teller theme here was actually sparked by a personal experience, lol.
