Overview

No-nonsense medical examiner, Kelly Richards, relies on the familiar comforts of science and scalpels to get her through the day. So when a not-so-dead guy who claims he's from the past lands on her autopsy table, she considers calling the men in white coats to escort him to a padded room. But Jarek's old-world ways and hot gaze trick her heart into falling for him-a mistake she swore she'd never make again.

When Jarek, Prince of Leisos, discovers someone he trusts has been slowly poisoning him, he travels to the future in search of a cure. Driven by vengeance, he enlists the help of an impudent scientist to return him to his time. Caught between his growing desire for Kelly and the need to expose his would-be assassin before he strikes again, Jarek must either forfeit his ticket home or lose the only woman he's ever loved.

    "Destiny's Past" is a book about time travel and the magic powers held by the female line in a certain family that uses this power for good. Kelly, a medical examiner, finds herself caught up in a mystery of time travel and discovers she is a descendant of a very special family of women.

    Patricia C Lee's new book, "Destiny's Past", is a fascinating mystery. It stars when Kelly is about to perform an autopsy and realizes the corpse is still breathing! Next she finds out the corpse, Jarek, is from 2000 years in the past. Kelly must then use her medical expertise to save Jarek's life and answer the question, how did he travel to the future and why?

    "Destiny's Past" is fast-paced and involves the wild romance of Kelly and Jarek. Kelly is not sure she wants to get involved but can't resist the handsome stranger from a different time. This is a wonderful and sometimes steamy paranormal romance you won't want to miss!

    On a hot summer day I was in need of something to read. Somethin

    On a hot summer day I was in need of something to read. Something that would capture my attention so I could ignore the screaming grandchildren.

    Destiny's Past accomplished that feat--amazing in itself.

    Straight-laced Kelly Richards, Medical Examiner, runs headlong into a paranormal world where magic resides. Jarek is our hero, a dead man who claims he's from another world--a prince in fact, of Leisos, a magical world where he rules.

    Since this is a paranormal romance, time-traveling duo, you know what happens next. One look into his eyes and Kelly falls in love--or lust--whatever it is, the pull Jarek has on her soul is overwhelming.

    However, someone is trying to kill Jarek so he has to travel forward into the future to find a cure. Then, he'll have to travel back into the past to find out who the traitor is.

    In the meantime, Jarek has to decide what he wants more. His life or Kelly, the woman of his dreams.

    Lee is a fluid writer who manages to pull off a time-travel novel without leaving threads behind. (Except the few that will lead to the sequel.) It's a quick read and very enjoyable.

    I highly recommend it to those with a love of the paranormal!

    A book worth reading

    This is a book that grabs you and won't let go. Time travel books can be tricky but Ms. Lee has managed to weave a world that is complex, interesting and realistic. The heroine, a pragmatic scientist, has to learn to believe in the unbelievable, a man who came from the distant past in order to save his life and that of his brother. And each of the characters have to learn to trust each other in order to save themselves. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

    Fabulous!

    A great read that sucks you in page by page. The author manages to describe and develop characters and scenes while moving right along so your turning pages as fast as you can read them. I love that you're not left completely hanging at the end of this first book of what is to be a trilogy. I'll be pre-ordering my copy of book #2!
