Blog Tour Promo Post: When Fates Collide by Isabelle Richards

at 1/30/2015 02:30:00 PM

Life can change in the blink of an eye. One moment, Lily is trapped in a loveless marriage. In a split second she is free, but at what cost?  Her mundane life is set into a freefall of tragedy and terror. Her husband may be out of her life, but he left a storm of collateral damage behind and the burden is on Lily to sort it out.
Fate connects Lily with Gavin, a charmingly handsome British gentleman that has been drawn into her tangled circumstance. Gavin is everything Lily’s husband wasn’t and gives her hope that love really does exist. Gavin wants nothing more than to sweep Lily up and carry her off into the sunset, far away from the devastation left behind by her husband. Gavin has been the first breath of fresh air in her life, but she isn’t looking to be saved. She needs to clean up her husband’s mess and find a way to save herself in the process.
Does she throw caution to the wind and open her heart? Or listen to her head that tells her and go it alone until she’s found herself again?


This vacation to the state of denial has made it easy to forget we’re two people with lives that have just been devastated by loss. Instead, we can pretend we’re just two people spending time together. Because this arrangement is temporary, I’m comfortable exposing parts of myself to him that I wouldn’t typically. We’ve quickly developed a strong bond, but I’m sure it will dissolve once the investigation finishes. He’ll go back to his life, and I’ll go back to mine.

Spending all this time together in confined quarters, chemistry is inevitable, but under the circumstances, it’s both awkward and inescapable at the same time. Sometimes, when we’re sitting and talking, Gavin looks at me as if I’m the only thing left on Earth. I have his complete attention. At other times, he looks ravenous, as though he simply wants to grab me and fuck me against the wall. It’s tempting. After all the loss, fear, and confusion, I crave the connection.  It’s not about sex exactly, although a little action wouldn’t hurt, but I covet the intimacy. To feel something real, alive. Something that wouldn’t make me feel completely alone in the world. We couldn’t… could we? I know I’m going to hell for even thinking it.
