Looking through some of the books I found that I still have not read a few of Krentz’s books so I picked up Call it Destiny. The book is one of her older ones but still amazingly good to read.
“Heather Strand is a successful businesswoman, and is looking for a marriage. Ready to assume control of her family’s Tuscon resort, she wanted one man at her side, Jake Cavender. It was a calculated deal, pure and simple, one that would be profitable for both. Nothing stood in the way of their successful partnership.
Except betrayal. Now she’s leveraging an impromptu buyout, leaving her groom standing at the alter. Heather is not a woman willing to relinquish the upper hand, especially to a man who’s getting under her skin and awakening in her something she lost long ago. A man who wants her on his terms.”
The book was excellent in the simple fact that it was well written and had well thought out characters. I especially loved the two main ones, Heather and Jake. They are complete opposites and perfect for each other even if they do not see it.
Heather is a wild child but toned it down until she came back home. I found it strange that she was going into a business deal marriage but then she finds out that all it not what it was thought to be. Jake and her father are holding back information that makes Heather resort to her impulses.
Jake is a cool, calculated man that is very good with the business. He wanted Heather working beside him and in his bed. When she leaves the wedding he does not sit ideally by and wait for her. No he goes and finds her. He needs to be with her.
Once the two reach the point of going to bed together Heather knows that she loves him but needs more time and Jake lets her go to the cabin where something will be waiting for Heather. This something is Rick Monroe her once boyfriend and he wants something of Heather.
And when danger strikes Jake will be there for Heather but will that be enough for her to really give in to marriage?
This was a very entertaining book to read with Heathers continual changes of moods. But the romance behind it is wonderful. It is a modern take of a romance novel and enjoyable to read.
