It took me a bit to get into this novel. And it's been a while since I've read a true contemporary romance. But once I was able to get into the book, I enjoyed how the story unfolded. Destined to Meet was an entertaining read and will have you rooting for Lloyd and Courtney's love to blossom into something more than a lust-filled one-night stand.
Courtney Hudson didn't date, didn't go bar hopping and definitely didn't do one-night stands. But when she decided to bust loose for one night, who would have guessed the beautiful young widow would end up in the bed of a sexy, man from Alaska?
Detective Lloyd Vance had moved to the lower forty-eight to escape a troubled past. And after a single, sizzling night of passion with Courtney, he knew he had made the right move. But then tragedy struck. And Lloyd and Courtney got caught up in a twist of fate that threatened to destroy their burgeoning love affair...
