What would you do if what you worked your entire life to build was suddenly destroyed?

Cade Walker is a cowboy Casanova. He's cocky and he doesn't care who knows it. He was raised on Walker Ranch and was destined to one day take it over. What he didn't know was how soon that would happen. After his parents are killed in a car accident he is thrust into becoming a responsible adult. Well, sort of. Cade is always responsible when it comes to business, but pleasure, now that's a whole other story.

Suzanna Mallory is a red-headed spitfire, who also happens to be Cade's best friend. She has loved Cade since they met when they were nine years old, but Cade just isn't the type to get married and settle down. Suzanna finds herself in an abusive marriage and the only thing that keeps her sane is her daughter, Isabella, and working with Cade at Walker Ranch.

When a fire threatens to destroy the future of Walker Ranch, Cade and Suzanna have to work together to save it.

What will this mean for her marriage or to the feelings that she has for Cade?

And now that Cade thought he found love with Loralei Harper, only to realize she didn't feel the same way, is he ready to settle down?

Is Cade Walker Destined to Succeed?

Editorial Reviews

"Destined To Succeed" was simply amazing. I knew from reading Lisa M. Harley's
debut novel "Destined To Change" that her writing captured me and I felt her
words. It was clear to me then that I would want more. Definitely a 5 Star book... The level of emotions that I felt while reading DTS was light and easy yet at
times very intense & definitely smokin' HOT!!! Strength? Love? Loyalty? Cade & Suzanna have it in spades.

I was really invested in the characters and their relationship. They really were likable and so good for each other. If they could only go back in time and change one thing, their lives would have been so different. It is told in alternating points of view of Cade and Suzanna in present time and in flashbacks. But it flowed well and I enjoyed their memories as much as their present story.
I look forward to more books in this series.

Meet the Author

I grew up in a really small town in Missouri. Very similar to the fictional towns I write about. I moved to the big city right after I graduated. I work full-time and I am mom to a beautiful little girl.

I started writing in October 2012 when a group I am a member of had a prologue contest. I didn't win the contest, but everyone who read my prologue asked for more of my story. I decided I had to finish it and get these characters that were in my head out on paper. During the writing process it became clear that these characters had a lot to say. So I realized my story was really a series:

The Destined Series
Destined to Change (Available Now)
Destined to Succeed (Available Now)
Destined to Forgive (Coming Fall 2013)
Destined to Rock (Coming Winter 2013)
Destined to Overcome (Coming Early 2014)

I am a really boring person, so this bio is super short! This is really about all there is to know about me. Sad, isn't it. lol

I love music and honestly couldn't write without my Spotify playlist. I am kinda obsessed with frogs (not real ones) and office supplies are my downfall! I could spend my whole paycheck at the stationery store...boring, didn't I already say that? lol

Also, I am slightly addicted to Facebook and Voxer. Please message me on either one...I would love to hear from ya'll.

Very good read. I feel the author is evolving through this series. This book was just a bit better than the last one. Hoping to see this trend continue as more books in the series come out.  Is a great read. Stands alone but to get the most out of the book read Destined to Change first.

I loved the first book in the series and didn't care for the main male character that was to star in the this book. Well, I fell in love with him in this book and just adored Izzy B!

Destined To Succeed by Lisa M. Harley 5/5 Stars "Destined To Succeed" was simply amazing. I knew from reading Lisa M. Harley's debut novel "Destined To Change" that her writing captured me and I felt her words. It was clear to me then that I would want more.  First things first, Cade Walker... It's no secret that I was Not Team Cade at all in DTC. In fact I'm pretty sure the whole of the Facebook indie-book community I frequent knows this.  So... While I knew I would enjoy reading "Destined To Succeed", and waiting not so patiently for her to finish writing it after the prologue I read at the end of DTC, I may or may not have sent some er, rather "encouraging" messages to the author to take her laptop and get in her writing cave so I could find out what happened next.  My surprise? Cade Holy Hotness Walker!! How in the world did she make me fall in love with HIM? Talk about I didn't see THAT coming! Yeah, she did. (Relax, my loyalties & love will always lie with Jaxon from DTC) but, Cade Walker has so many layers to him. I can honestly say that I look forward to seeing snippets of him in future "Destined Books".  Suzanna... Oh my God. I loved her. I wanted to protect her. I wanted to talk sense into her. Hell into both of them from time to time. The journey that she goes through and the absolute hell and horrors that she faces. I cannot imagine facing those situations myself.  The level of emotions that I felt while reading DTS was light and easy yet at times very intense & definitely smokin' HOT!!!  Strength? Love? Loyalty? Cade & Suzanna have it in spades. Oh, and you may want to have a box of Kleenex nearby, just sayin'.  Definitely a 5 Star book... Add it to your TBR list and watch for it in June! I love to feel and get lost in the books I read. Thank you Ms. Harley and get back in your writing cave!!  Review by Stacy Bailey Darnell/Literary Mania Reviews

Ms. Harley has written an awesome cowboy in Cade Walker. When he was introduced in Destined to Change, he seemed to be just another smooth talking cowboy. But was ever more than just a cowboy. He met the love of his life when they were 9 years old. Suzanna was a littler red-headed spitfire, who was the perfect match for him. Their story has many ups and downs. The one thing that was constant for them was each other. I really loved reading their story and I am looking forward to more books by Ms. Harley.
