Overview

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 ancient 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. He dodges her every attempt to get to know him but undaunted Maggie launches a campaign to win over the recalcitrant Aidan.

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. But 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.

    Fated Souls takes a different spin on the werewolf curse, breath

    Fated Souls takes a different spin on the werewolf curse, breathing new life into the genre. I loved Maggie the most. She stood up for herself time and again, didn't take crap from anyone, and she even kicked ass when she needed to. She never questioned her own worth or what she deserved, and that is so refreshing in a heroine. The descriptions of meadow and forest were rich and beautiful and made me want to visit! I'll definitely be reading this author again.

    Fated Souls is the story of a scorned writer, a cursed man, and

    Fated Souls is the story of a scorned writer, a cursed man, and the fated path that not only pulls them together, but leads them to everything that neither realized they wanted. Overall, Becky Flade paints a vivid picture and tells a great story - there are quirks and characters that keep you helplessly transfixed and, next thing you know, it's dark outside and an entire day is just gone. The author also did a great job with dialogue and pushing the story forward with some great curveballs! Just when you think a happy ending is coming - WHAM! Cue the monkey wrench! 

    I honestly wish that there had been more book - I found myself stopping to absorb the bestial attraction between Maggie and Aidan's nightform, Gaelech. I like to think that there was more behind it, I just wish I could confirm what it was! Beyond that, I thoroughly enjoyed the book - Maggie is an awesomely tough girl, and Aidan compliments her perfectly as the rugged man/wolf who doesn't know whether to enjoy her courage or be seriously shocked and pissed about it. It's a read I'd recommend, and I'm looking forward to seeing more from Miss Flade!

    About the book: Aidan Gael is cursed, but strives to keep it hi

    About the book: Aidan Gael is cursed, but strives to keep it hidden from others. He spends his days as a horse rancher and keeps to himself. Even though tormented by his curse, he is reserved and thoughtful.

    Maggie O’Connell has turned from an investigative journalist to the tabloid scene because of false accusations. She has heard sightings of a werewolf in Minnesota. With the support of her editor, she travels to the small town and camps out in the woods hoping to glimpse this wolf. When the zipper on her sleeping bag gets stuck and gains a bear’s attention, the famed wolf comes to her rescue.

    Later Maggie sees in Aidan’s eyes the same eyes as the wolf. Undaunted by his recluse behavior she pursues him to find out the truth. Will her investigation bring her closer to Aidan and the wolf? Or will his curse doom them both?

    Together they will navigate the violence of both nature and man in the pursuit of their destiny.

    My thoughts: This is a sweet but spicy paranormal romance. I admired Maggie’s gumption. She is paired nicely with Aidan as her outgoing nature complements his reserved. When the two come together in the book, it’s tantalizing and makes the reader desire more.

    Miss Flade does an excellent job of painting the characters and the world around them. The backstory on Aidan’s curse is intriguing. And one can’t help but cheer Maggie on every time she appears on the page.

    The only downside I could find is that Maggie and Aidan’s relationship seems rushed to me. I would have liked a little more foreplay-but that is my opinion. Usually when I read a romance where the main characters get hot and heavy, I begin to lose interest. However, Miss Flade pulls out some surprises that made me want to know what happens next and keep reading.


    I enjoyed this story and look forward to Becky Flade’s future novels.
