Fate is a Moreno Brothers spinoff series.
He ruled out attachments years ago. Then one day he crosses paths with a beautiful but pampered daddy’s little princess. History has taught him one thing about women like her—steer clear.
She was starting over. She moved back to her home town, took a new job assignment, and left her past behind. For the first time in over eighteen months, she’s even intrigued by a man—a sexy but cold and indifferent drill sergeant. Despite feeling drawn to him, she has no time to figure out his inexplicable aversion to her.
Then Fate steps in one night, forcing them together. There’s a connection neither can refute, and they both consider giving into the undeniable attraction.
Fate however can also be cruel. Just when they surrender to their heart’s desires, past demons resurface in the most unexpected way, threatening the happiness neither realized they so desperately needed.

She actually heard him gulp, and she smiled, feeling her heart speed up. Nearly losing her courage, she fought to keep the old her around and brought her hand around his neck, kissing his lips again, only this time she kept her lips on his longer. She waited, but he didn’t kiss her back, and for an instant, she felt so mortified her heart plunged. The girl with him at Gaslamp came to mind. She’d already made note of the fact earlier that he didn’t wear a wedding band, but that could mean nothing. She could still be his girlfriend or fiancée.
Regina began pulling away when his arms came around her, pulling her to him, and he kissed her feverishly and so deeply like she’d never been kissed before. She’d been kissed plenty, and she’d felt passion, but this was an entirely different experience for her. The man was voracious the way he sucked her lips with such fervor. She loved it. She wanted more.
With her insides going crazy among other parts of her body, a moan nearly escaped her as he sucked her bottom lip even harder. Just like earlier, he seemed to catch himself and stopped suddenly, leaning his forehead against hers breathlessly.
“Don’t you dare,” she said, pulling back to look at his startled eyes. “I started that.”
“You were just thanking me. I shouldn’t have taken it where it went.”
“If I hadn’t wanted it to go there, I would’ve stopped you.”
He stared at her, noticeably swallowing hard again, his jaw stretching. “Why didn’t you?”
She shook her head and touched his face. “I didn’t want to.”
He closed his eyes at the touch of her hand to his face. “You don’t know anything about me.”
His words made her pull her hand away. “Is that your girlfriend?” she asked, dreading the answer. “The girl you left the bar with Friday night?”
Shaking his head, he opened his eyes, but he didn’t look at her. “I don’t have a girlfriend.”
The relief was instant, but she refrained from letting out the breath she was holding in too obviously. “My not knowing anything about you is not for lack of interest on my part. You say you have no interest in getting to know me, but that’s not what I felt with that kiss or the way you look at me.”
The old Regina was alive and well, but she was scaring the hell out of the new Regina. The insecurities she’d never felt before last year, before her life had taken such a turn, were still also very much alive and well. What if she was completely off? What if he’d just gotten caught up in a moment of passion? What if what he’d been so brutally honest about before still stood—he had no interest in her.
“Trust me,” he said, standing up. “You don’t wanna get to know me.”
