Joining Hannah, with a secret of his own, is the gloriously handsome librarian, Spencer Rush. Meeting him was fate. Trusting him was a choice. But falling for him was beyond her control.
Through her life-changing quest, doubts increase while truths of her past are unveiled. Two seemingly unrelated instruments become the keys to unlocking her future. A book. And a stranger.

“Everything about him makes me feel alive and excited, yet entirely full of peace at the same time. He makes me feel safe, and desired, and worth more than I am. Or ever thought I could be. It's like, when we're together, everything just feels right.”
First I feel I should tell you, this is a SciFi Romance; that is not something I picked up on from the blurb, nor do I think most people would. It worked out well for me because I'm a closet addict of the genre, but not everyone is so I want to make sure you know what your getting yourself into. With that said, I do hope you give this book a whirl. Heat wise it's actually pretty tame, but what really drew me in and held me there was how incredibly unique it was, how ridiculously intriguing, and the characters are out of this world... quite literally. It' told entirely from Hannah's POV so we really go on this journey with her, learning as she does, feeling her reactions along side her, desperately trying to find answers all while falling in love for the first time. Yes there is a heavy dose of insta-love in here, which generally drives me bat-shit crazy, but it was so wild, intense, and out of control that I was happily able to live with it. The plot moved at a great pace never slowing down, never letting go of it's death grip on my admittedly short attention span and the authors writing style was smooth and easily held me under it's spell. Mystery and surprises lurked around every corner, you never truly knew who you could trust, what to believe, what was being kept from you and every last detail was well thought out. My only real complaint was the ending seemed a bit rushed and kinda sudden. I was left with a ton of questions but it wasn't exactly a cliffhanger if that makes any sense. All I can hope is that this is not the end of their story; I know there is another book coming out but I'm unsure if it will follow Rush & Hannah, or someone else? What I can tell you is, Elizabeth Wyke cemented her spot on my SciFi One-Click-Addiction List with this, one question and sigh at a time and I cannot wait to see what she brings us next.
“Just call me a boomerang. No matter how far, in whatever direction you throw me, I'll always come flying right back at you. You're it for me. The happiness of my life is now tied solely on being with you. I was created to love you, to cherish you. To bring you unyielding pleasure and delight. No matter how angry I make you, and how miserable you'll make me feel because of it, I can't be without you.”
I'm Elizabeth Wyke, author of the new-adult, sci-fi romance novel, Call It Fate.
Though a Colorado native, I've lived most of my life where the wind comes sweeping down the plains, in the great state of Oklahoma. Here I live with a ton of testosterone… my amazing husband, two incredible sons, and three dogs – two of which are also male, and thus testosterone-driven, as well. Most of my free time (i.e. after the kids are asleep) is spent replenishing what dwindling estrogen levels remain, by reading and writing sappy love stories.
I discovered my love for creative writing as a teenager, and always dreamed of penning a full-length novel, but honestly never thought I'd really do it. Then after falling in love with so many indie authors, I thought to myself, "Well if they were brave enough to do it, certainly I can be too, right?" So in-between my duties as wife and mommy, I took some online writing classes to polish the attempt, and from the very first writing assignment, the idea of Call It Fate was born. I knew right then I would eventually turn it in to a book. And here we are.
I am currently working on part two of the trilogy... stick around for more news on its production.
I'm a real Facebook junkie, and hope you take a second to like my page over there so we can connect, and really stay connected long-term. I've said before some of my other "healthy" (ok, maybe not so healthy) addictions are über-sweet coffee drinks, and all things Maroon 5. But I'm really just a big fan of music in general. It plays a huge role in my writing, and also day-to-day life, motivating me to kick it in gear and fold some laundry, or clean up the dishes. I've often said, "a workout is only as good as its playlist"...but really, that could be said for just about everything in my daily life.
