Will Warren be able to win her heart back?
Destiny isn’t something I buy into, but she makes me want to believe.
I cannot wait to get my hands on this book!

If only you knew. My instincts tell me to run as far away as I can from this. Yet my heart tells me to keep going.
That maybe there’s a chance you’ll stay a little longer, that something will keep you here. You’ve awakened the fire in my heart and there’s no turning back for me. I don’t know what to do with it.
How to tame it. How to ignore it.
And maybe I don’t want to.
