Do you believe in fate or destiny?
Until a strange car pulled in Lucy's driveway, Jared Thundercloud laughed at his grandfather's old stories and legends. Now the girl that's been visiting his dreams since he was nineteen is standing across the street from him. At least he thinks it's her. She's the reason he became a doctor. He hoped he could change a predestined future by being in the right place at the right time. Can he? Will fate be kind, or will destiny rule out?
Through the years, Jared has built a secret love for his 'dream girl'. A love so strong he's willing to walk away if he thinks it's better for her. If his walking away can change her future. What does he want to change? Why won't he tell her?
Although this book is linked to the 'A Vested Interest' series it is a stand alone novel. You don't have to have read other books in the series. A sequel is planned for 2013.

"[I] wasn't sure if I wanted to read Blood of the Rainbow because I didn't want a different story line. Well I read it and I'm so glad I did! I cried like a baby though."

About the Author
We started the 'A Vested Interest' series in 2007 and it took over a year before I came up with an ending we were happy with. At 170,000 words A Vested Interest was too long though. We cut it heavily but still ended with a 140,000 word book. There was no alternative, we had to split it into a two book series. Doing that, we thought, would allow us to put back some of the content we had cut and expand the second book (Dark Secrets) a little. Well that was the plan. We ended up splitting the second book and making a trilogy by adding 'No Secrets'. The original ending didn't quite fit now so we moved it into a fourth book - Stones, Stars and Solutions. And so it goes on. We are now writing book 10 and 11 of the series. Shelia has written a spin-off book 'Blood of the Rainbow' and is busy writing a sequel. Altogether it's 1.2 million words so far! In terms of time, we've only covered a few months. There is an end in sight but not for another 5,000 years. Maybe I'll get to use my original ending then? About the Authors John and Shelia Chapman are a husband and wife team who met on Internet and crossed the Atlantic to be together. John, an English ex-science and computer teacher contributed the technology and 'nasty' bits while Shelia drew on her medical experience in the USA and produced the romance. The humour? That came from real life.
