Favorite Quotes:


That was one of her favorite things about her relationship with Nick. Even in the quiet spaces between words, she was always in tune with him.


My future husband knows if he ever cheats on me I’d shoot him before I’d ever stand by his side like the humiliated little wife.


But luckily for you – and for me – you’re also annoyingly cute, distractingly sexy, and perfectly imperfect.


Oh, I love when we get to arrest evil bastards!


Gonzo’s heart beat harder as he understood with a clarity he’d never experienced quite so vividly before that she was it for him – the one he’d been waiting for without even knowing he’d been waiting.


“Engraved? I have to engrave something? … What did he put in mine?” … Sam rested her hand on her weapon. “I could make you tell me.”


I hate when I get all ready to have a big fight with you and then you say something that totally sucks the wind out of my sails.  


This day was six years in the making… From the first instant I ever laid eyes on you, Samantha, I knew you were the one for me. It took far longer to get here than it should have, but all that matters is that we’re finally here.


 My Review:


Sam and Nick’s life remains in high gear throughout this active and suspenseful piece.   A series of murders brings an extremely vexing case to Sam’s load, and since it’s Washington D.C. – that means murder, sex, politics, and corruption across all levels of government. The plotline maintains the intrigue and suspense throughout, with several staffers also garnering their own significant subplots, each as captivating as the main event of Sam and Nick, who continue to enthrall me. The novella of Fatal Destiny chronicles their wedding and started off with considerable tension and anxiety for the characters following a personal tragedy for them as a couple, but the story soon soared into an engaging and enjoyable story and ended with a deliciously steamy wedding night. Ms. Force’s writing is expertly paced, engrossing, easy to follow, and highly addicting. She squeezes my heart in one paragraph, and has me smirking in the next, but always keeps me well entertained.
