Tempted by Fate

By Kate Perry

Willow Tarata is the guardian of the wood scroll. With that responsibility comes great power and great danger. She hunts down those who prey on the weak. She is looking for, and being hunted by, the man who killed her mother. Her hunt leads her to San Francisco and into the hands of one of it's best homicide detectives, Rick Ramirez. Willow finds herself being Rick's prime suspect for 3 murders.

Rick Ramirez is a cop who believes in following the rules. As far as he's concerned, there is only black and white. There are no gray areas. It's by the book, no matter what. But once he meets Willow, he starts to see those gray areas. Thanks to his grandmother, he's seeing more than that. Question is, will he believe it?

For Willow and Rick to survive they must learn to trust each other and rely on each other. With the help of Rick's grandmother they learn to be more accepting of each other. Their passion and desire for each other is off the charts, but will the love be strong enough to get them through the gray areas?

This is the third installment of the Guardians of Destiny Series. If you haven't read the first two, that's OK. This one stands on it's own very well. I know I'm looking forward to reading the first two soon.
