Love with a beautiful stranger isn’t so strange—if you believe in destiny.
Celestial Seductions, Book 1
Clinical psychologist Destiny Walker considers herself far too logical for any of that “soul mate” nonsense. Even if her beloved, dearly departed Nana insisted she was going to meet hers someday. When a sudden downpour sends her ducking into a psychic reader’s storefront—and the woman confirms everything her grandmother said—doubt begins to sneak into the corners of her mind.
A chance meeting—more like a collision—with Superman look-alike Reece Kellan sets off a sexual chemistry reaction the likes of which she’s never felt. She isn’t prone to falling into bed with strangers, but he does things to her body that leave her breathless…and unsure where her pleasure ends and his begins.
And that’s the part that scares the hell out of her…
This book has been previously published and has been revised and expanded from its original release.
Warning: Dirty sex with a stranger, a little anal play, more dirty sex, sex on the kitchen table, more dirty sex (because really, can you ever get enough?) and even love at first sight—shocking!
Destiny Walker is a logical woman. She doesn’t believe in soul mates or love at first sight, only what she can prove. When she gets caught is a sudden rainstorm, she finds shelter in the only open storefront, a psychic reader, who tells Destiny she will soon meet her mate. Since this is what her late grandmother kept telling her, she is shocked to hear it again, but still doesn’t believe it. Running out of the shop, she runs straight into a Superman look alike named Reece Kellan. With Reece, she feels an instant attraction, stronger than any she has ever felt before, and doesn’t understand it at all. Can Destiny let go of her preconceived notions and go with her instincts? Is Reece all that he appears to be? Will this be a Christmas to remember for Destiny and Reece?
Eden Bradley has managed to combine a sweet love at first sight, soul mate story with a hot and steamy anything goes tale. I love the logical Destiny, and how she fights every step of the way the growing feeling she has for Reece. Reece is a wonderful character as well, never giving up on Destiny, and showing just how much he cares. I loved the constant comparisons to Superman. Who doesn’t want a Man of Steel in their life, right?
It wouldn’t be an Eden Bradley book without hot and steamy sex, lots of it in many imaginative places and ways. She delivers this and so much more with this wonderful holiday story. It is a story of beginnings and passion and love and new beliefs, and it is a perfect holiday read for those who like their Christmas happy ever after fantasies on the hot side.
