Fate's Design by Lola James Excerpt

Fate's Design, a Paranormal Romance (Fate Series Book One) by Lola James

During a summer trip to Italy, Megan falls in love and is pulled into the world of vampires, witches, and magical powers. As she becomes more deeply entrenched, her nightmares begin to make sense, and she realizes that she’s been part of this new world since birth.


I should have been studying, but I needed rest more than I needed to understand the Romance era in Europe. I had no clue why I chose such an intense class for my spring course schedule. It was tough enough with all of my business courses, and I decided to add that one for fun.

As the sun set to close out an already long week, I reclined on my bed and put my ear buds in as Katy Perry sang about a teenage dream. It’s ironic that my iPod shuffled to that song since I hate my dreams, but the melody and Katy’s voice relaxed me enough not to think about them.

The door slammed louder than usual and startled me from my rest; then Morgan, my twin sister, started yelling.

“Megan, Megan, you home?” Her annoying high-pitched voice sent my name throughout the house. I exhaled, knowing that my rest was over. I loved Morgan, but sometimes she drove me crazy, and I knew she would occupy the rest of my evening.

 “Here I come,” I grumbled as I sat on the edge of my bed. I stood up, stretched, and started toward the doorway, then stopped. I could feel someone looking at me. I peered over my shoulder at the window and the half-opened blinds, then went to shut them. I sighed with relief as the feeling dissipated.
