Fated Souls
by Becky Flade


GENRE: Romantic Suspense



Shamed investigative journalist turned tabloid scribe Maggie O’Connell convinces her editor to let her go to Minnesota to research alleged werewolf sightings. Her first night in the woods, she gets trapped in an old sleeping bag, unintentionally attracts the attention of a bear, and is saved by the most unlikely of heroes: the very wolf she had come to investigate!

When she meets horse rancher Aidan Gael in the town market days later, she recognizes his eyes as those belonging to her champion.

Aidan tries desperately to avoid her; he both fears Maggie and fears for her. Neither man nor beast can resist her curious mind and courageous heart. One kiss threatens to break Aidan’s tenuous self-control but furthers Maggie’s resolve.

Danger lurks at every turn. The curse Aidan fights to keep secret is only one of the obstacles that will test the strength of their bond. Together they will navigate the violence of both nature and of man in pursuit of their destiny.



“Ten. You’d stay longer if you could afford to?” He asked it nonchalantly, as though his world didn’t depend on her answer. Then he silently tried to convince himself it didn’t.

“Hey it’s my turn.”

“Nope you asked how many we were up to. Don’t waste your questions.” She chuckled when he tossed her words back at her, and Aidan thought he would probably never tire of hearing her laughter. The sound made him think of childhood; sunny days; sandy beaches; and snowball fights in the winter. His childhood had been happy and he’d taken it for granted. He thought probably all children did. But all that had been stripped from him when he was barely old enough to be called a man. Then the wolf had become his reality and he’d closeted himself away from the world for so long he’d forgotten the simple warmth of sharing laughter with another person.

Maggie’s laugh filled him with a light that he both craved and feared. He knew he should continue to distance himself from her. He was worried he could become addicted to her clever smile and husky laugh. Aidan pushed the worry aside before he could talk himself out of enjoying the moment. He had sought her out this day. He meant to see it through.

“Yes, I’d stay longer if I could afford it. Why did you push me away that day?”



This book took me on an exciting paranormal, romantic, suspense adventure that I didn’t want to end!!!

This book is intriguing, engaging, suspenseful, thrilling, dramatic, and satisfying!!!

I really liked the main characters, Maggie and Aidan.  They were likable, honest, and genuine.  They both had baggage, but that’s what made them such great characters!!  I really liked Maggie as she was sassy, bold, smart, tough, brave, confident, caring, determined, and stubborn.  I love strong female lead characters and Maggie was just that!

I really enjoyed that the author created flawed and damaged characters that really showcased her writing style and ability to push her characters to reach their full potential over their arc.  This is especially so with Aidan, as his character had such significant growth, development, and improvement over the course of the book.

A strong character development journey to root for and enjoy watching it unfold!

This book was filled with excellent plot obstacles that the main characters had to face.  They were well constructed and thoroughly thought-out.

I loved the adorable Minnesota setting.  My mom’s family is from there and I grew up with all those silly small-town stories about walking to school in the snow five miles, etc. lol!!!  So, I loved the author bringing in the sweet hometown vibes with all the neighborly fixin’s.  It definitely brought an enjoyable element to the story line.

This book has a creative story line that evenly flows, superb writing style with meticulously well-described scenes, strongly-developed characters, is steady paced, and completely keeps you fully entertained!!

There are some predictable scenes.  However, there are still a few very unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming!

This book is Book One of The Fated Series.  This book can absolutely be read as a standalone.

I will be reading and reviewing additional books in this series and look forward to sharing my take on those books with you soon!

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it!  I think all romantic, suspense readers will like this book too!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!

A city girl, born and bred, I tend to place my stories in and around southeast Pennsylvania, or at least have a character or two from the area. Home is where the heart is and I make mine with my very own knight in slightly tarnished armor, three beautiful daughters, my son-in-law and two grandsons. When I’m not busy living my own happily ever after, I’m writing about someone else’s.

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. This book started as a short story but I just couldn't stop writing, it took on a life of its own. Then during the editing process about a third of the manuscript was cut. So short story made long then trimmed resulted in something much different than originally drafted. But I love it
