Surrender to Fate (Fate's Path Part One: A New Adult Romance Series)

How do you fight against fate? You don’t. You can’t. You can only surrender to fate in Jacelyn Rye’s new release!

Some say fate holds the cards. But what if love deals the hand? No love goes untested. Ever. Indeed, true love is left to prove itself. And that is exactly where fate steps in to play the game.

For William and Sarah, that game begins with growing up, in the unspoiled mountains of Colorado. In a time and space as clear as the Rocky Mountain skies above, these young souls together learn about life, what matters most, what endures, what doesn’t, and about love. Innocent young love moves ever so surely toward lives they both can picture, lives spent loving each other in a place they know so well and cherish.

Will and Sarah are ecstatically swept away in the swells of new love. And it is in their rarefied bliss that they make the fragile promise of first love, a promise that fate will soon rock and pound into doubt, guilt, and epiphany.

Unexpected and unprepared, these young lovers are suddenly torn apart, first by distance, and then by the far greater pressures of temptation that test the very fidelity of their heart-held promise. No longer able to console each other, hold each other, touch each other, they face the inevitable decision: move on to other loves, or cling to the faith that they will someday be together, again.

Helped by Cory Melkin, a former radical; Evelyn Phelps, a woman of many hidden talents; and Kate, a lost child who knows more than she is saying, Jesse must survive long enough to uncover the dark secrets that led to The Raptor Apocalypse and prevent the extinction of the human race.
