Date with Destiny (Harlequin Special Edition)
DATE WITH DESTINY is a Harlequin Special Edition release for August 2013 by author Helen Lacey.
Grace Preston is a top-shot financier in New York city. She left small town Crystal Point behind when she left for New York. She had also left small town cop Cameron Jakowski behind as well. Now she was back.
She didn't really came back to stay though. She was just here to regroup and go back to her job after her life threatening accident.
But would Cameron let her go now that she was here? What would happen when Cam finds out about her accident? Would Grace ignore the feelings brewing between them? Can she walk away from Cameron and all she feels for him the second time?
DATE WITH DESTINY has a unique mixture of emotional and sensual tension. It will enthrall readers. The tight plotting and storytelling will captivate them. Author Helen Lacey delivered an emotionally compelling story that would keep readers engrossed from the very first page.
Grace is super smart and was sent to boarding school for a better education, but it distanced her from her family. She felt she didn't fit in, so she isolated herself more. Until something horrible happened and she went home to Crystal Point to heal.
Cameron is strong, confident, generous with his time. He's a deputy, volunteers for Big Brothers, and helps a teen mom and her family to find a better life. He's been in love with Grace most of his life, but she wrapped herself in ice to protect herself from hurting, being weak, vulnerable. Cameron works his magic with Grace. The emotions both experienced draw you in and don't let go. READ "Date with Destiny".
They sort of pick at each other until he finally tells her that he has much deeper feelings for her. She is attracted to him but she plans to return to New York after her vacation. They have a very torrid affair and then her time to leave arrives. This was a very good story. My favorite kind. Two people working thru issues to get to their HEA. There is no villain, no crazy family member, etc. Just two people and their story. I loved it and recommend it. Great read. This author can write a great hero.
I first have to acknowledge Crystal Point, a beautiful little town in the heart of Australia somewhere. Helen has written some beautiful and emotional stories about its town folk. To help you understand a bit more about Crystal Point read this entry by Helen* over at my fave blog LoveCats Down Under and here**.
Grace flys home to Crystal Point from America where she's been all her adult years working herself to the bone. She's home for her sisters wedding, or so everyone thinks. Within the couple of pages she runs into Cameron, town policeman and her first love. And so begins an emotional and fully capturing story of Grace and Cameron and their second chance at love.
Grace is hiding the real reason she's home from her family. She's been involved in a car accident and had a breakdown as a result of it. She's pretty much been ordered home by her boss and her therapist. Rest and relaxation is on the menu but things don't pan out like that really. She looks after her sister's B&B while she's on her honeymoon and is soon caught up in the lives of the townsfolk and and kids Emily and Dylan who need help with their maths.
Cameron has never forgotten Grace and now that she's home he launches right in to try and convince her what she's missing. Poor guy takes one step forward and two back when dealing with Grace and slowly he begins to unravel why she's really home and what's really gone on in her life that led her to America and why she wont stay in Crystal Point.
Date with Destiny is a magnificent love story with two characters that are so believable it's like I'm standing next to them. Cameron wants nothing but the best for Grace. Grace is an amazing person written with such originality. The descriptive words of Helen Lacey's writing and the way the story was weaved had me oblivious to the world as I read it.
I love meeting the towns people of Crystal Point and I hope to meet more in the future :)
