Destined To Succeed
What would you do if what you worked your entire life to build was suddenly destroyed?
Cade Walker is a cowboy Casanova. He’s cocky and he doesn’t care who knows it. He was raised on Walker Ranch and was destined to one day take it over. What he didn’t know was how soon that would happen. After his parents are killed in a car accident he is thrust into becoming a responsible adult. Well, sort of. Cade is always responsible when it comes to business, but pleasure, now that’s a whole other story.
Suzanna Mallory is a red-headed spitfire, who also happens to be Cade’s best friend. She has loved Cade since they met when they were nine years old, but Cade just isn’t the type to get married and settle down. Suzanna finds herself in an abusive marriage and the only thing that keeps her sane is her daughter, Isabella, and working with Cade at Walker Ranch.
When a fire threatens to destroy the future of Walker Ranch, Cade and Suzanna have to work together to save it.
What will this mean for her marriage or to the feelings that she has for Cade?
And now that Cade thought he found love with Loralei Harper, only to realize she didn’t feel the same way, is he ready to settle down?
Is Cade Walker Destined to Succeed?
I grew up in a really small town in Missouri. Very similar to the fictional town I wrote about in my novel. I moved to the big city right after I graduated. I work full-time and I am mom to a beautiful little girl. I started writing in October when a group I am in had a prologue contest. I didn't win the contest, but everyone who read my prologue asked for more of my story. I decided I had to finish it and get these characters that were in my head out on paper. During the writing process it became clear that this was going to be more than one novel. It had to be a series. I have at least 2 more novels planned for the Destined Series. I also have an idea for a YA novel that stems from one of the characters in Destined to Change...hint, hint. When I was asked to write this bio I explained that I am really boring and it would be really short...so, that's about all there is to know about me. I love music and honestly couldn't have written this book without my Spotify playlist. I am kinda obsessed with frogs (not real ones) and office supplies are my downfall! I could spend my whole paycheck at the stationery store...boring, didn't I already say that? lol Also, I am slightly addicted to Facebook and Voxer. Please message me on either one...I would love to hear from all of you.
Cade was the most handsome boy I had ever seen. He had a strong jaw and perfect nose. His muscles were accentuated by the farmers tan he always sported. He always wore old t-shirts with the sleeves cut out. One of my favorite pastimes was to do my homework out in the barn while Cade worked and I tried to catch a glimpse of those muscles. (Sure, homework, that’s what I was doing!) I loved it when his forehead would have that layer of sweat on it and the muscles in his arms were strained while he bucked hay in the stalls. He was just sex on a stick. If the body didn’t get you, that damn deep voice with the country drawl would do it every time.
- I had the pleasure of reading Destined to Succeed as an arc....and, surprise...it is now available on Amazon. Check out Deb's review...you will not be disappointed with this one. Cade is all that and a bag of chips! This story really rocks...when you are sure you know what is going on and "who dunnit"....think again! He said, she said, he should have said, she should have said, what she heard and what he meant...two completely different things...you get the picture. Lisa M Harley....home run with this one!
I had the pleasure of reading this as an arc...and wow...just wow. I had not known anything earlier of Cade...didn't know there was a prequel book to this one...getting his story was new to me.....but wow...I didn't need any prequel...this book rocks. Twists, turns, sex, love, lies, secrets, amazing characters....he said, she said...he didn't say, she didn't say...he should have said, she should have said....she overheard and didn't ask questions...he listened to what she thought she wanted, and he honored her wishes....yep....this has it all. At some points I wanted to throw my kindle....at other points, I wanted to take Cade and hug the crap out of him....he is arrogant...but with reason to be so.....run to amazon, hit one click...trust me...no regrets on this one!
