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 too…
