Kat never believed she’d fall victim to her family’s stories about destined soul mates—she makes her own fate, thank you very much. When she walks by a construction site and admires the same sexy architect for the zillionth time in a week, the last thing she expects is to be slammed by a vision of his death.
Which activates the spell that will change their lives forever.
Jake is a single dad with a singular focus—create a stable life for him and his son. His ex-wife cured him of any desire to fall in love, but when an intriguing woman saves him from what should’ve been a deadly accident, he can’t shake his fascination. Too bad she’s crazy, claiming she’s a witch and that they’re soul mates—not exactly the “stable life” he had in mind.
Kat’s destiny comes with a deadline. If they don’t fall in love by her twenty-fifth birthday—a mere three weeks away—Jake will never find the peace he seeks and Kat will lose her magic forever.

Light and Sweet, PNR Fun! (4 stars)
Kat has her life all planned out. Her witchy powers have come in handy in her business but when she has a vision of the handsome guy she's seen at the construction site she passes on her way to work meeting his death she finds her plans getting disrupted. According to the family legends he's destined to be her soul-mate and if he doesn't fall in love with her by her impending 25th birthday her witchy gifts will be gone.
Jake has had enough heartbreak for one lifetime, with a baby to parent on his own and a career he craves stability. But when Kat comes crashing into his life, saving him from a swift exit he can't squash the attraction. If only she weren't a nut-job claiming she's a witch...
I didn't go into this one thinking I'd like it. In fact, I was pretty sure it was going to get a two-star. Blending the supernatural with the lightness and sweetness of a solid romance novella I ended up sucked in and enjoyed myself. ENCHANTED DESTINY is a quick read with likable characters and just the right amount of quirk. This is just the sort of read I need when I've been soaking up too many darker Urban Fantasy stories. Think of it as the novella equivalent of a palate cleanser.
While it's not dark or particularly lengthy I found it to be a satisfying read worth recommending to readers in need of something just plain sweet and uncomplicated. Will definitely be watching to see more about ENCHANTED DESIRE, the sequel, which should be out sometime this spring.
