Defying Destiny is a very different novel than what I've come to expect from Olivia Cunning, aka Olivia Downing, but still a great read! Very much a wolf focused shifter book, so if you like a more organic feel in this genre than you will love Defying Destiny. I was amazed how the author wove the romance to be innocent yet sexy all at the same time. The plot is emotional, sensual, and moves at a steady pace throughout with inner turmoil, warring families, forbidden love and a romance that blooms against all odds. The character development was superbly written and the main characters of Maralee and Nash were a perfect fit. If you are already a fan of Olivia Cunning and enjoy paranormal romance, or if you are just a lover of paranormal romance and furry heroes than I recommend you picking up Defying Destiny!

Books where the heroine falls in love with her emotional abuser (and who I consider a rapist) just make me furious. I spent the whole book wishing she'd poisoned the hero and had done with it. Wish I could get my hours back from reading this garbage.

Olivia alter ego breaks out in to the world with this new gem of a book. Defying destiny left me eager for more. She has penned strong believable characters set a vivid world full of things that go bump in the night. This book touches on the very core of humanity and that while we can commit unspeakable acts there is a choice and perhaps atonement. It also asks the undefinable question, can love really conquer all.
