After turning thirty, Kate Anderson decided the time had arrived to settle down--manage
her grandmother's art gallery, marry a respectable lawyer, and deny her flights of fancy.
Yet all her good intentions gallop off after a New York City police officer claims he's
her destiny. Kate tries to convince herself that her immediate sexual attraction results
from her fiancÚ's performance problems, not other underlying problems with their relationship.
That is until Harold gives her permission to have one last fling before they marry.
At the age of sixteen, Anthony Petrocelli's grandmother predicted he'd someday marry a
green-eyed blonde he'd meet near the Virgin Mary. She failed to mention his "intended"
would be engaged to someone else. In order to convince himself that Kate is not the right
woman, he invites her to meet his family. If his blind grandmother doesn't sense Kate's
"the one", he'll let her get on with her life. He just wishes he could see her smile reach
Before long, their simmering attraction boils over. Will Kate forego others' expectations
and follow her heart? Is it true love, or is Tony following a faulty lead? I'll say no
more than Mr. Destiny's finale is sure to satisfy every romance reader.
Candy Halliday's latest novel has everything a great story should. Kate could be your
best friend; she's beguiling and natural. Tony is every woman's dream; he's all "male,
muscle and magnetism", not to mention compassionate. A great plot, humorous interactions
and spicy love scenes kept me turning the pages. Quirky secondary characters and enchanting
subplots support the main story and give readers a bargain for their buck. I even found
myself rooting for Harold, who starts out as a very unlikable character.
Treat yourself to Mr. Destiny! This feel-good, laugh aloud, romance is best
of this year's offerings.
