Review for Fate’s Design

A special hello to all my readers.

I’m wishing you all a very Happy New Year on this, my first post of 2013. For this post I bring to you a quick look at Fate’s Design by author Lola James, and a review. Read along for more information on the giveaway for this book tour.



Fate’s Design (Fate Series #1) by Lola James

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publisher: LJ Publishing, Inc. (self Published)


Pages: 220


Amazon | B&N |


Book Description:

During a summer trip to Italy, Megan falls in love and is pulled into the world of vampires, witches, and magical powers. As she becomes more deeply entrenched, her nightmares begin to make sense, and she realizes that she’s been part of this new world since birth.

My Review:

Drawn to the story from the very beginning—this is how I felt about Fate’s Design. It was such a fantastic page turner that I could hardly put my Nook down. Alex is—oh my gosh—so incredibly alluring you can’t help but drool over him. He’s fascinating and his secretive demeanor only make you want to get know him even more.

The story builds up slowly, which I found particularly refreshing. I love the fact that Megan is so down to earth and tries pretty much to do what she feels she has to, even if her brain and heart don’t always agree.

Overall, this book gets a thumbs up and I’m definitely looking forward to the next one. As a matter of fact, I’ll be on the lookout for it : )

About the author:

Lola Bio pic (m)


Lola James has been reading romance novels since her teens, and fell in love with the paranormal after discovering Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Her love of the dark worlds of vampires and witches, as well as her fascination with Greek mythology led her to create the Spellbound Series, an ongoing Paranormal Romance combining all of the above into tales of suspense with a little bit of humor in an Urban Fantasy setting.

A long time lover of reading and writing with a passion for a great story, James became discouraged by the complicated and arbitrary publishing process, James had initially set down her laptop and her hopes of being a writer. However, with the purchase of her first e-reader, James became re-energized by the new possibilities for an undiscovered author to reach the masses. Dusting off her keyboard she finally finished Bound to Remember, the first book of the Spellbound Series and self-published it. Energized and ambitious, James is now hard at work on both the Spellbound Series as well as the Fate Series, a paranormal romance about dreams and what happens if they come true.

Living in Southern California with her two beautiful children, James finds time to write in between her full-time job as a mother as well as her other full-time job as an HR manager, as well as her academic schedule as she studies for her Master’s degree which she hopes to complete in 2013. With the success of Bound to Remember, James hopes to continue to reach an audience that will allow her to leave her HR job and focus on her writing as a full time career.
