What do you do when your carefully planned life takes a wrong turn into hell? When Quinn Maguire, a dashing young trauma surgeon, unaccountably accepts a position as an ER physician, her new boss, Honor Blake, suspects that Quinn is hiding a dark secret. While the two declare an uneasy truce in an effort to work together, both struggle with mutual, and unexpected, attraction. Honor, however, has more than one reason to resist her growing feelings for the attractive newcomer-not the least of which is that her heart belongs to the woman whose wedding ring she wears. Amidst the chaos and drama of a busy emergency room, Quinn and Honor must contend not only with the fragile nature of life, but also with the mysteries of the heart and the irresistible forces of fate.

At times I thought the characters weren't going anywhere with their relationship, there was always this constant sexual tension. However that does change-it's very realistically written and has a great ending. At times it was hard to put down.
It has everything and more I expect a romance to have. Having read other books by Radclyffe already, it didn't catch me by surprise that I loved this one,too...but I was surprised how deep the story entwined with my own emotions.
I am pretty sure you will love this story,too ...it's fate.
Ich kann dieses Buch guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen.

I have read a fair share of books by Radclyffe, but this is the first stand-alone I have read. I would actually give it 3.5 stars. Perhaps because the genre has evolved considerably since this book was first published, it seemed a bit flowery and melodramatic to me. The story is told in the third person alternating between the points of view of the two main characters. The fact that these two women developed a "soul mate" kind of love, so quickly seemed far fetched to me even though this is typical for this genre. It could have been due to the heavy handed descriptive passages about their intense feelings, their inner monologues and the sex scenes. I did like each character and I thought they felt right for each other. I just think the book was a bit on the heavy-handed side. When Quinn finally does have an incident with her heart, it is so minor and resolved so quickly I felt like a real moment for drama was missed. Finally, when Honor did come around to a place where she could say that she loved Quinn, it felt abrupt and was part of a marriage proposal. I know it is sacrilege to give Radclyffe three stars, but I just wasn't wowed by this novel.
Okay, so here's my problem. Radclyffe has a huge list of publications, and typically when I read a book that I REALLY like, it makes me want to read the author's other works. It's not that I haven't read a Radclyffe book before; I absolutely love the Rivers Family Romances and own the 4 she has thus far published. It's an excellent series, but I've restrained myself from going further down the rabbit hole of wanting to devour all her works. That is, until I stumbled upon this book. I saw that it had over 90 Kindle reviews with a 5 star result. That's pretty big. I started reading the reviews claiming this may have been her best work, and I had no choice but to check it out. I have to say I agree with those claims and now I'm hooked to check out NIGHT CALL because it's supposed to be next in the series. I absolutely loved the characters in FATED LOVE, so now I'm going to read the next book just to get a mention of them, though I'm sure I'll fall in love with the characters in the next book as well. There goes my budget.
