Today’s book review is by our guest reviewer Charlotte Abel, author of Enchantment.Meeting Destiny by Nancy Straight is a paranormal romance that reads like a thriller. Once you start you won’t be able to stop. Even if the romance between Lauren and Max hadn’t wrapped itself around my heart and pulled me through the story with breath-taking urgency, the suspense alone would have. At times it was nearly unbearable.If you’ve read my other reviews, you know how important “the story” is to me. I connected with Meeting Destiny on so many levels. It made my heart pound and my palms sweat. I laughed out loud and even shed a few tears.Lauren is a college-aged girl with amazing intuition. She just “feels” when things or people are good or bad. She pays attention to these feelings and stops a robbery in action. This chain of events leads her to Max. Meeting Destiny pulls this “love-at-first-sight” scene off flawlessly when the reader learns Lauren has seen this same man night after night for years – in her dreams.Throughout the book, she discovers more about her intuition and what her destiny is meant to be and how her destiny affects others. Of course, just when it seems everything is going to work out, there is an unexpected twist that leaves you begging for the sequel.I loved this book. It’s a great story that was interesting from page one. It kept me up all night, reading. As soon as I finished it, I immediately bought the second book in the series, Destiny’s Revenge.

They leave everything and everyone behind to start over in Louisville, Colorado. Magic is forbidden while they are in hiding, but Channie can’t resist the temptation to enchant a group of local boys. When her overbearing parents catch her flirting with these “sex-crazed, non-magical delinquints,” they slap a chastity spell on her to protect her virtue.
The spell is triggered by lust, so just navigating the halls at her new school is an ordeal. She can’t even touch a boy she’s attracted to without blasting him with a jolt of magical energy that feels like a taser.
When Channie falls in love with Josh Abrim, a BMX racer with dangerous secrets of his own, she rebels against her parents and turns to dark and forbidden magic to break the chastity spell … with disastrous results.
