A Date with Fate is the debut novel by Tracy Ellen, and the first volume in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod ongoing series. Experience action, sex, wit, romance, mystery, mayhem, friends, family, flashbacks, fantasies, much laughter, and an “OMG!” cliffhanger–all in one roller-coaster ride of a wild weekend!
Smart and sexy bookstore owner Anabel Axelrod is happily satisfied with the routine of her life. She enjoys her work, the occasional company of good friends and family, and casual dates with men that are willing to follow her ironclad rules on dating.
Not too tall, deliciously dark, and definitely not handsome, the mysterious Luke Drake is a new man in town. When they meet, Anabel realizes Luke is the same man that she saw briefly in her bookstore months ago. They had never actually spoken, but sparks flew and worlds collided when their eyes clashed across the room that day.
It soon becomes apparent Luke has set his sights on Anabel, but he is no follower of rules and control is his middle name. Falling crazy in lust and sharing her darkest desires with an experienced man like Luke was definitely not in Anabel’s plans. She loves being single and will allow no man to control her, but Luke has persuasive ideas of his own.
But Anabel’s intense desire for Luke Drake is not her only concern. The slutty wife of a friend has gone missing, an employee at her store is attacked by an abusive ex, and the man who broke her heart years ago returns to town. Anabel’s orderly life dissolves into chaos. In A Date with Fate, the question remains–will the sassy, blonde bookseller follow her own rules to stay single, or will she understand that life is never simple and a certain mesmerizing complication may be worth the risk, even if it kills her?
The next two books in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod series, Courted by Karma and In Love by Design, are available for purchase at all major booksellers. Adieu to Destiny is available for preorder and will be released in November 2014.
