Choices of Fate 
Alexa Ryan lives a simple, solitary life until one day when she literally runs into a tall, dark, and handsome stranger. 

Ethan Kellar has been running from his destiny for most of his life, determined to choose his own path, but when he meets Alexa, everything changes. 

Together, they learn what love truly is and that some choices are out of their hands, some choices are made by fate. 

Redemption of Fate 
When Ethan Kellar awakens alone in the dark and discovers the carnage that surrounds him, he struggles to remember anything of who or where he is. His mind and body feel foreign, like a flesh and blood prison, until he discovers the lifeless form of the beautiful naked woman in his arms.

Drawn to her in a way he doesn’t fully understand, he touches her necklace and is met with the searing pain of his newly acquired silver allergy. With the pain come flashes of his old life and the crushing realization that the woman is his mate, and he attacked her in a fit of bloodlust. 

On mandatory lockdown at the Elite compound, Cami has never felt more trapped in the place she’s called home for nearly two centuries. Trapped by fear for her missing brother and by the unwanted, yet undeniable attraction to her young, cocky new brother-in-law, Jared. 

When the body of one of their kind is discovered by humans, the Elite are forced to intervene, giving Cami a reprieve as she leads the team to retrieve the body and clean up the mess before the race is exposed. 

Back at the compound, Chloe continues to grow at an astounding rate and it isn’t long before the strength of her preternatural powers are put to the test as she fights to save what’s left of her family. 
All the while, Lucias continues his pursuit of Chloe using his blood bond to Ethan to extract information and utilize the race’s most powerful vampire in his struggle to rule humans and vampires alike. Unbeknownst to Lucias and despite Alexa’s death, the mate bond still exists keeping a small part of Ethan beyond Lucias’ control, but will he eventually give in to the darkness or will it be enough for fate to redeem itself and save him. 

Absolution of Fate 
The exciting final installment of the three-part Fate Series. 
After Lucias Thorne ripped away the woman he loved along with his free will, Ethan Kellar is forced to watch as the same monster walks away with his only daughter. Locked in a cell with only his suffering to keep him company, the last shred of the man he once was starts to slip away. Meanwhile, the woman he thought he’d lost forever is fighting to find her way back to him. 

Having sacrificed herself to save the ones she loves most, Chloe is trapped living under the watchful eye of the same man who tore her family apart. While Lucias desires her, he also fears her, so he agreed to keep his distance for a time, but until she binds herself to him forever, she is cut off from everyone else. Thanks to her unique ability, Chloe manages to find comfort in the most unlikely of places as she struggles to resist Lucias and hang on to the hope of being with her family again. 

When an accident reveals Chloe’s most dangerous power, plans are set in motion that change the course of the world and finally bring an end to the war her kind have been fighting for centuries.

Excerpt:

I take a good look at myself in the bathroom mirror. I'm not gorgeous by any means but I do find myself pretty. My long dark locks hang loose before I throw it into a messy bun to get it out of the way. There is minimal makeup on my face with just a touch of powder and some mascara to make my eyes pop. The freckles splattered lightly along my cheeks seem to make me look younger than my 23 years. However, as I stare into my dark brown eyes, they tell a different story.

I grew up too fast after losing my parents when I realized the world wasn't fair. My grandmother did her best to care for me but she was old and frail. I always assumed I would have lost her years earlier but I was lucky for the time I did have with her. I had to help care for her though, just as much as she cared for me. I learned how to cook not long after moving into her house, and I had to do every chore there was because it was too difficult for her. I made sure she took her pills on time everyday among other things. By the time I had been with her a year, I felt more like her parent then she was to me.

When I lost her years later, I was devastated just as much as I was losing my parents and at the time I only had Sean and his family left. I had no other family as I took care of myself. I went to college, got a great job, and was well on my way to living the life I always imagined. But it had always felt empty somehow. Like there as a missing piece and I could never figure out what it was that was missing from my life.

Until now.

I loved Sean. I still do. He will always have a piece of my heart but Brad has always had my soul. Sean just filled some of the void that Brad had left behind when we were younger.
I am shocked to realized that after all this time Brad has felt the same. Now that he is here claiming me, making me his irrevocably, and filling everything I never realized was missing in my life, I am scared. It was one thing to lose Sean. I knew eventually I could move on with my life and look back on the memories of him with a smile. If something were to happen to Brad, I would become shattered. Forever broken and I would wither away into nothing. I would only ever just exist.

Life has a way of taking everything that I love and care about away from me. It is inevitable that I will lose Brad and I cannot let that happen. As much as I want him, my need for him to remain safe and keep me from being completely shattered is to push him away. I just hope I am strong enough to do it.

Once I step back into the living room after cleaning myself up and getting my emotions in check, Brad is already waiting for me with determination in his eyes.

"I see the wheels turning in that pretty little head of yours but I am not leaving here until we hash this out. You're mine, Lainey. Every piece of you is mine; always has been and always will be. I let Sean have you and that was my first mistake. I almost lost you to him. I loved Sean. I would never want to disrespect him. But I know he would want you to move on and be happy. He would want someone to love you just as much as he had. I can guarantee that nobody, not even Sean, has ever or will ever love you as much as I do. You're my only reason for living. After today, you will know whom you belong to. I guarantee it."

Not once did Brad show an ounce of insincerity in his speech. He meant every word and it sent tingles down my spine with his declaration. I wanted him again. What's more is I wanted in his embrace. However, I was still scared at the thought that I would lose him eventually.

"I can't. If I lose you, I will never recover. And I can guarantee that I will lose you. Everyone I love and care about is taken from me."
"I'm not going anywhere princess. You're mine and I am never letting you go and I sure as fuck ain't going anywhere."

"You can't promise me that. Anything could happen to take you away. It's just easier if I put distance between us before I get too close."

"Let's say you're right. Would you rather take the chance of losing me and regretting never taking the chance to see what we could have been? I think you would regret never taking the chance to make memories of us and missing out on everything you ever dreamed of." I contemplate his words and know that he is right. But I am still fearful. He doesn't get that I will become a shell of my former self if I lost him.

Brad stalks towards me with heat in his eyes, but there is something more pronounced. Triumph dances along his features as he realizes he's winning this battle of wills. As much as I hate the idea of losing him, the thought of never having taken a chance to see where this will go hurts even worse.

"Take a chance with me. Let me show you how to truly live. You've hidden away in fear for far too long and it's time to start living." He pulls me too him and I give no resistance. What's the point? He's right that I need to stop living in fear all of the time. Maybe this time I won't lose someone I love. For once in my life, fate may give me mercy and let me keep this one man to live my life with instead of taking him like my parents, my grandma, and Sean.

I close my eyes as Brad glides his fingers along my cheek and jaw before gripping the back of my neck giving me chills with his dominance.

"Ok.” I whisper. “I'll take a chance. I'll live for you, for me and for everyone that has been taken from me. I'm yours in every way. Promise me I will never lose you?" I chew my bottom lip with nervousness.

Brads lips turn up in a smirk making my insides quiver in anticipation. "You bet princess. I'm not going anywhere now that I've finally got you in my arms." Pulling me into his embrace, his hard body creating warmth and safety among other things, to flow through me.

I suck in a breath from his words knowing he means every one before he lands a soft kiss on my lips. Slowly he deepens the kiss, applying more pressure before licking the seems causing me to open for him before plunging his tongue inside creating a moan from deep inside my chest.

Before I know it, he has me pinned to the couch, stripped me completely for the second time and has me straddling him as I set the pace giving long, deep strokes, chasing our release slowly before finally cresting over into bliss. My heart soars and somehow I know I will never get enough. I just hope fate doesn't swoop in and ruining everything.

About Whitney-

I am an author, blogger, and mom to the best kid ever. On the days that are not hectic (which is hardly ever) I spend my time writing what I can. I write mostly contemporary adult romance but I think I will venture out just a little and write a few for teens to broaden my reader spectrum. I have always been imaginative making up stories and friends when I was younger, and once I had a teacher tell me how horrible a story I wrote was, that I didn't write until just a few years ago. I realized I don't care what her or anyone else thinks, as long as I love what I write then I am happy. That doesn't mean I don't want readers to love my books, I am just understanding that not everyone will love what they read and I am ok with that.
I also run a blog with two other awesome ladies called The Club and I hope that you would take a look and see what we have going on. I was just kind of thrust into it but I love exploring new genres, finding new authors, and reading a range of books I might not have heard of before then. It also helps I love to tell other readers about some great authors.
I grew up in Southern California, and on top of being and author, blogger and mom, I also love to watch movies, read excessively, go to hockey and baseball games, and relax with just my friends and family.
I hope you take the chance to check out my books and hopefully enjoy them.
