Editorial Reviews

Sand Dollar Sailor
A Twist of Fate is a sexy and funny romance. I loved the two main characters. Each has to step way out of their comfort zone to connect with the other. I could fall in love with Helmut. He is soooo lovable and innocent when he's out of his element. And Mel just keeps getting in deeper and deeper. And I loved the secondary characters too. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and hot read.
I really enjoyed A Twist of Fate. Colorful characters, beautiful writing, and a vibrant, fast-paced plot makes
Erin Thompson
I loved this story of opposites attract. Farm Boy meets City Girl sparks fly, and they each try to fit in the other one's world. Sexy hero and sassy heroine tha were very well written. I only wish the ending was a tad longer or had an epilogue.

    I want a Helmut of my own!!!

    I can't imagine two more dissimilar characters falling in love, but this author makes me believe in their crazy, addictive romance. It starts out as plain old lust for the heroine, Mel. She hurries back to her city haven but can't forget the big, sexy farmer who rocked her world. Helmut, on the other hand, falls in love and starts planning a future with the wildly exciting Mel. They both try to be in each other's worlds in ways that make sense to them, but made me laugh out loud. How they come together makes a sizzling hot and hilarious tale. Enjoyed it.

    This was such a sweet, sexy, funny romance between two totally opposite people, but it kept me chuckling and rooting for them all the way through. I like that Helmut is such a gentle giant. He's intelligent and powerful in his own world, but out of his element in Mel's domain. And did I say sexy. OMG!!! Enjoyed the read...Want more from this author.

    Not so sure

    This story is definitely aptly titled for sure! I liked the premise of the book, but I'm not sure I liked the execution. I can appreciate the city girl/country boy plot but this was a bit extreme. The hero was portrayed as a back woods bumpkin with old-fashioned values...in almost an offensive way, IMO. Then the HEA ending was wrapped up too quickly considering the differences between the characters' lives/careers.
