New Release A Matter of Heart- June 25th, 2013



No longer in high school, Chloe Lilywhite is now living and working in Annar, the Magicals' city-state plane of existence. Since moving, she's joined the Council, gone on missions with the Guard, moved into her own apartment, and enrolled at the University of Annar. Plus, she's happily engaged to be married to Jonah Whitecomb, the literal man from her dreams, not to mention her Connection. While she still struggles with aspects of her craft, Chloe feels like she's finally coming into her own, especially after a difficult year that had her questioning nearly everything in her life.

After a brutal attack by the Elders, her life is turned upside down once more. Accusations fly throughout the Council and Guard, forcing Chloe to confront her worst fears about what's she's capable of as a Creator. And then there's the matter of Kellan Whitecomb, Jonah's twin brother and Chloe's ex, who resurfaces after disappearing months before. Although Chloe chose Jonah, and despite their best efforts, the two find it hard to stay away from one another.

But no matter what Fate throws at her, Chloe is determined to take charge of her life, even as it begins to spiral out of control.

A MATTER OF HEART is book 2 in the Fate Series, a mature Young Adult/New Adult fantasy.
REVIEW of A Matter of Heart
"I think about how it felt to have his hand in mine, and how he'd unconsciously rub his thumb up and down my skin in an intimate way. I think about how his hair would tickle me when he'd press down on me, and we'd kiss so much that I'd be delirious. I think about how, when I was falling apart, he risked his own heart to make sure I was okay."-Chloe
"There's only you. You're the only one I'll ever see. The only one I'll ever want."-Kellan
"What I feel for you goes above love...I don't think I can describe it, even to you, Chloe. What I feel for you-it's...your my best friend. My favorite person. Someone I know I can go to when I'm happy or sad or anything in between. The only person who makes me so hot and fills me with so much want and need I can't even think straight...I don't think you truly understand what you mean to me. I don't think you ever will."-Jonah
Oh my sweet goodness! I can't even begin to tell you how much I absolutely love the Fate series by Heather Lyons. I will start with Chloe, I was hooked from the beginning when she describes herself as a chronic daydreamer. She dreams about places to run to when the inevitable, predetermined outcomes of her rigid life leave her no choice. I feel like I can totally relate to her because I find myself in similar situations where I daydream that I am somewhere else. Chloe feels she has been dealt a bad hand from fate when she learns more about her role as a Creator in the world of Magicals from her guard, Karl, then her own parents. Also she learns that Fate as given her a "connection" to the guy she has literally dreamed about her whole life and feel in love with, Jonah, and that he has a twin brother, Kellan.
In AMOH Chloe has moved to Annar, started college, attending council meetings as Creator, and going on missions with the Guard. In a matter of a year her life has changed drastically and the pressure she feels would be overwhelming for any normal 18 year old Magical. Events in her life become messy when it involves the twin Whitecomb brothers. She is engaged to Jonah and has to go on multiple missions with Kellan since he is apart of the Guard. Meanwhile the threat of Magicals being wiped out by the Elders are a constant reminder to Chloe that the people on all the planes are relying on her to stop the killings by the Elders. Chloe is very strong willed and she doesn't want anyone to see her breakdown or let anyone down.
After a turn of events and struggles that Chloe goes through, she ends up making herself sick. And still she refuses to back down from her duties as Creator. The position her heart is left in is that she knows she has a "connection" with two guys...Jonah and Kellan. How do you choose when Fate has given you both? Do you choose the man you grew up with in your dreams or the man that has been by your side through the good and the bad? When you know that you are in love with both men and can't even think of having to make a choice without breaking your heart in the process.
So who does Chloe choose; Jonah or Kellan??? She chooses to run when the inevitable outcome of her rigid life leaves her no choice.
