Review: Fate’s Design – Lola James
When Megan’s sister, Morgan, wins a fashion internship abroad for the summer, she never expected to tag along. Yet she can’t deny that the summer vacation is just what she needs to unwind and makes sense of the dreams plaguing her every night. Italy turns out to be everything she’s ever dreamed of and she’s excited about exploring every inch of it while she’s there.
Running into a mysterious stranger one day, she hits it off with Alexandros Di Piero from the get go. While she’d never imagined finding romance overseas, she can’t deny the fact that she’s attracted to the handsome stranger. There’s something about him that draws her to him, although she can’t quite put her finger on what it is. Despite this, she’s determined to enjoy her time with him while she’s still in Italy.
A whirlwind courtship soon ensues and Megan finds herself thrust into a world she never knew existed. She becomes privy to Alex’s secrets and learns that vampires do indeed exist. She accepts that he’s half human and half vampire, somehow knowing that they’re tied together in more ways than one.
When it becomes apparent that her sister has been inadvertently drawn into their sordid world, Megan does her best to protect her family at all costs. Her dreams are her only way of finding out what may happen next. Yet in order to do so, she must accept her fate and the tasks that have been set before her. Tasks that may prove to be her undoing if she allows them to be.
This was a very intriguing book. It’s a good read, that’s so for sure. I do think that certain instances within the story were rushed, like Megan and Alex’s romance as well as Morgan’s follies. Other than that, the premise of the story definitely draws in the reader. The cliffhanger at the end does leave me wanting to know what happens next, though.
A summer vacation in Italy with her twin sister, Morgan, is just what Megan Romano needs. But instead of fun, wine, and relaxation, she finds unexpected romance. Alexander DiPiero, a sexy and mysterious Italian businessman, falls for Megan the minute he lays eyes on her, but Megan knows it’s too good to be true.
Increasingly haunting dreams that warn of danger and destiny plague Megan’s every sleeping moment. As her nightmares become deadly and her love life heats up, Megan will come face to face with her worst fear.

Mostly of her books are Paranormal Romance with suspense and a little humor, but she’s not limiting herself to just that. All of the stories emanate from her wild imagination and the fact that she is a hopeless romantic.
