Amazon.com Review

***** 5 Stars! The author has created an enthralling story with all the characters in Destiny's Present. I was riveted to the pages from the first to the last while trying to untie all the little strands of the story as I tugged along on them. I still have some questions, but I like that. Some characters I love, some I hate and some I'm not sure what to think of. Ardis the warrior is perhaps the foremost. But I do know that I want to know more. I enjoyed this book a great deal. I would highly recommend it.  Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite

"5 out of 5! Patricia C Lee's new book, "Destiny's Past", is a fascinating mystery. It stars when Kelly is about to perform an autopsy and realizes the corpse is still breathing! Next she finds out the corpse, Jarek, is from 2000 years in the past. Kelly must then use her medical expertise to save Jarek's life and answer the question, how did he travel to the future and why?

"Destiny's Past" is fast-paced and involves the wild romance of Kelly and Jarek. Kelly is not sure she wants to get involved but can't resist the handsome stranger from a different time. This is a wonderful and sometimes steamy paranormal romance you won't want to miss!"  - Jean Brickell, Reader's Favorite Book Reviews

From the Author

This is book 1 of the Daughters of the Crescent Moon trilogy. It was immensely satisfying writing this novel. The editing process was an education onto itself. Although Destiny's Past is lightly suspenseful, book 2 will have a lot more twists and turns.

I've finished the book but it lingers. When I started reading Destiny's Past, I thought it intriguing and interesting. As I read more, I found it was a story that stays with you. The hero and heroine have real problems, maybe not ones we encounter every day. I mean, who encounters a dead body that isn't really dead in your job? And traveling through time? Well, maybe not problems we can relate to, but problems that cause real change for both characters. The author weaves a tale of two very different people who are drawn together by circumstance and learn to trust each other, to love and to sacrifice for the other. Who can ask for more?

On a hot summer day I was in need of something to read. Something that would capture my attention so I could ignore the screaming grandchildren.

Destiny's Past accomplished that feat--amazing in itself.

Straight-laced Kelly Richards, Medical Examiner, runs headlong into a paranormal world where magic resides. Jarek is our hero, a dead man who claims he's from another world--a prince in fact, of Leisos, a magical world where he rules.

Since this is a paranormal romance, time-traveling duo, you know what happens next. One look into his eyes and Kelly falls in love--or lust--whatever it is, the pull Jarek has on her soul is overwhelming.

However, someone is trying to kill Jarek so he has to travel forward into the future to find a cure. Then, he'll have to travel back into the past to find out who the traitor is.

In the meantime, Jarek has to decide what he wants more. His life or Kelly, the woman of his dreams.

Lee is a fluid writer who manages to pull off a time-travel novel without leaving threads behind. (Except the few that will lead to the sequel.) It's a quick read and very enjoyable.

I highly recommend it to those with a love of the paranormal!

This was a fun, quick read. Kelly Richards is a medical examiner whose carefully ordered world is turned upside down when Jarek, a prince from two thousand years in the past, comes into her life. At first Jarek needs Kelly to heal him, but the more time they spend together the more they both need each other. I like the way their relationship developed. Kelly's strong facade hides a lot of pain, and coming to terms with that pain is part of her journey in this book. Vanessa and Narena add some interesting secondary characters, as does Jarek's twin brother. There was enough intrigue and suspense to make it hard to put the book down and I zipped right through it. I will be waiting for the sequel to find out what's in store next.

Follow Kelly Richards, Medical Examiner, as she flees from her personal demons into a strange and compelling world where magic and reality collide. From what has to be one of the most original introductions of a "leading man" to the last lovely page, I was caught up in the mystery and romance of this novel. Waiting for the sequel!

A great read that sucks you in page by page. The author manages to describe and develop characters and scenes while moving right along so your turning pages as fast as you can read them. I love that you're not left completely hanging at the end of this first book of what is to be a trilogy. I'll be pre-ordering my copy of book #2!

This author has become one of my new favorites. Once I got this book back after a friend stole it! LOL I read it in two hours. Could not put it down!!! Pat Lee brings to life AMAZING Characters...especially Kelly and Jarek...and I hope to read MUCH MORE about his twin Rayja in the future! Pat Lee has created wonderful characters that I cannot wait to meet again. Hopefully I will get to see what will transpire for Narena (and her daughter) and now that is all I will give away... so definitely read this book, I promise, you will not regret it!!!!!
