No fraternization. Sure, Alexis knows the company rule, but that hasn’t stopped
her from lusting after her very hunky boss, Gabe. Nor does it prevent Gabe from
asking her out repeatedly. Alexis has managed to fend him off until now, but it
is getting more difficult to say no, and this business trip the two of them took
alone together isn’t helping matters.
Gabe knows that he and Alexis are destined to be together. The trick is
convincing the career-minded Alexis to take a chance on love with him. That’s
what the trip to Sedona he planned for them is all about. Yes, they had
legitimate business, but he is also hoping the magic of the location will help
Alexis see how much they can mean to each other.
A hike with Gabe through the mountains and a mystical rock soon affect Alexis in
ways she could never have expected, and her life will never be the same again.
When is voyeurism not exactly voyeurism? Perhaps when you are watching yourself
and your soul mate in a previous life… Such is the case with the heroine of
Mackenzie McKade’s new release, DESTINY’S TOUCH. Although a short
read, this novella packs quite a punch in the emotion department. Talented
author McKade easily builds a history for these characters in the present day,
and ups the ante even more with glimpses into their past lives, with the
romantically reluctant Alexis as the time-travelling voyeur.
Although initially resistant to the idea of a workplace romance, a series of
flashbacks from their previous incarnations serve well to convince our heroine
that Gabe is, indeed, the man she is meant to be with and that their present
life is the chance their souls have long awaited to make it work finally. OK,
the flashbacks combined with Gabe’s patient persistence convince her… *grin*
And Gabe is most certainly patient, even while struggling with his own intense
emotions concerning the desirable Alexis. Knowing he might scare her off
forever if he moves too quickly, he gives her the space she needs to make the
decision to come to him, while still remaining on the fringe, ready to meet her
halfway when the time is right. Of course, he’ll do everything possible to help
her see that the time is right!
DESTINY’S TOUCH is a wonderful story that is bound to touch the
heart of romance readers everywhere. With the flashbacks offering both some
very sexy scenes and some very emotional tearjerker moments, Mackenzie McKade
keeps her fans on the edge of their seat until the end of the story. Then
again, the present day love scenes between Gabe and Alexis are pretty darn hot
