Absolutely Amazing!!!!
Do you believe in Destiny? That your Heart is meant for only one person? How past events can affect future lives?

Well Predestined Hearts will make you a believer. This book is about 2 EPIC love stories. Told in both Present time and in Past time (year 1886) this book will draw you in and not let go until the end. This book will leave you with a book hangover. I know I can't stop thinking

Ever had one of those days? Or lives? Nothing goes as planned. Even when you think you have a handle on it....BAM...The ACME box opens and you get blown up. Again. This book is THAT in novel form. Like a ACME novel ready to blow up in your hand, head, and heart.

For starters, this is double whammy book. You get two stories in one. The story of Ashlin and Gael. And the story of Sophia and Danny. Sophia and Danny are the ancestors of Ashlin and Gael. We get there story through jou

I was absolutely blow away by this book. This is something different I have never read before. It’s a love story inside of a love story. Be prepared for an emotion ride that will leave you completely breathless and mind blown.

When the book starts Ashlin is with her boyfriend Harris. Let me just state how much I despised HARRIS. He literally made me sick!! Ashlin has had enough of Harris and decides to change her life she gets news her aunt has passed away. Her aunt is the one who raised Ashlin

I just loved this book so much. Such an endearing romance set out between two couples over a great distance of time. Just so beautiful. This contemporary is broken up in two complete parts dealing just with Ashlin is dealing with and after reading her great great great grandmothers journal. Not something you will want to miss.

This wonderful story shows how. Their elders past can control the love of what Ashin has today. I loved Kristen Mayer's book, like I always do. Such the most wonderful book

I have a lot too say about this amazing book!!! ** No spoilers**
First of all I loved the whole idea that the story took place now and in the 1800's. That time setting is one of my favorites. The way they dressed and talked was just beautiful.
The other thing is that I am a firm believer in in destiny I think that was another reason this book rocked out. Kelly and Kristin this book was just beautiful

This is a story about two different times, two different women and two different love stories but they are also intertwined in more ways than just through a journal.

“Why wasn’t I able to find the love we saw in fairy tales? Everyone I loved eventually left me.”

I had a huge love/hate relationship with this book. What I loved was the plot and story line; so beautiful, sad, heart-warming and heart-breaking but what I didn’t like was the fact that sometimes the writing seemed a bit young consideri

I knew this book was going to be different. I am a big fan of Kelly Elliott, so when I read this synopsis I knew I had to pick it up. I haven’t read anything from Kristin Mayer but now I definitely want to. This was book was definitely different, we got two stories for the price of one and we got two different romance genres. Once you opened up this book it immediately blows your mind. There was so much to like about this book I hope we get more.

This book is set in two different points in time, now and the 1800's. I won't lie - this concept made me a little nervous at first because I'm not really a big historical fan but Kelly and Kristin totally nailed this book!!!

In the present time you have Ashlin Thomas, Harris, Gael Stowe. In the 1800's you have Sophia, Daniel Stowe, Devlin Covington, and Colett. This is a tale of two absolutely amazing stories of how love can conquer all.

I absolutely love everything that Kelly and Kristin write. I was so excited when they announced that they were co-writing a book. I had never read a historical romance before so I was excited when I found out they were writing a dual genre book. This book is really two stories in one and Kelly and Kristin did an amazing job. It rotates between the past which is Daniel and Sophia's story and the present which is Ashlin and Gael's story.

Ashlin is stuck in a very unhappy relationship so when she ge

I've not read a historical romance in quite a while so was slightly nervous as to how Predestined Hearts would read. I've never read a duel genre book either but was intrigued as to how the contemporary and historical aspects would meld together. The result? A beautiful and amazing love story, leaving me with a lasting impression.

Ashlin Thomas and Gael Stowe are our hero and heroine from the contemporary storyline and their story is told from alternating POV. Ashlin is in Savannah for her belove

It's all worth in the End. PREDESTINED HEARTS is Amazing

This is a wonderful book. It has a twist where we are taken back to the 1800;s throughout the journal of Sophia. Her journal is part of history where you piece your ancestors, but the journey you find is of True Love and how Love and Loss are at war, but in this Journey that Ashlin the Great, great great granddaughter of Sophia, Ashlin fines her one true love. Ashlin thought she was in love with Harris until money and power came into play.

ok I Decide to edit this, this is not a historical romance. So please don't over look this fantastic story.
I enjoyed reading this book; it was interesting how they created a link between the past and present using the journal. I must admit though that what I liked best was the fact I felt I had two stories emerging in one great book.

Oh my goodness, there are just not enough stars to express how much I love this book!

I am not a fan of historical romance but this dual genre was AMAZING! Not only do you get a love story, you get two great love stories plus so much more!

There is love, happiness, angst, sorrow, heart breaking (have tissues), and oh so much steam!! This book has every possible thing you could ever want from a romance! I was sucked in from the beginning and could not stop.

predestined Hearts

Kelly Elliott and Kristin Mayer joined forces and created a masterpiece by merging historical with contemporary romance. This story took place in the 1800’s when everything was so eloquent and beautiful. The attire, the way that women and men communicated, and held such respect, its what I love about that time period. The idea, and the execution of said idea, was done with fantastic writing, characters with depth, and elegance. Kristin and Kelly teaming up for this novel was a

Oh dear Lord, I loved loved this book so much,with the two stories going on it was so fun to read. It was so hard for me not to just skip ahead and read Sophia's and Danny's story so I could find out what happened. I cried so much for them.
Ashlin and Gael are just two of my favorite characters now. I loved how they read to each other and both of them felt the connection to Sophia and Danny. it was just the sweetest romance story I think I've read. Wonderfully done ladies.

This is one book you MUST read!

Provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I'm not a fan of historical romance, but this book is unlike any other I have ever read. The storyline sucked me in right from the start. The past and present are intertwined perfectly. I don't know who I love more Daniel or Gael. This duel genre has everything, angst, sexiness, love and grab a tissue, you'll need it. This is one book you MUST read!

Predestined Hearts

Loved, loved this story. Your writing brought me right there with Ashlin and Gael as their love grew for each other. The story of Sophia,s love for Danny would not let me put this book, I even had a place in my heart for Devlin. I enjoyed the journals of Sophia and Danny were heartwarming in the end I even had tears coming. To me if you can provoke these feelings you have done an excellent job at storytelling.

What a journey this story takes you on. A story about 2 couples from 2 different times who fell in love. I couldn't put this down I wanted to know what was happening next and laughed and held my breath and cried through this book loving every minute. I'm left feeling happy and sad all at the same time.

Predestined Hearts blew me away. I didn't know Kelly Elliot could write something so different yet
so alike to what I am used to with her books. Of course now I am going to go purchase all of Kristen Mayer's books too because Ms. Elliot wasn't alone on this one. This book contained everything I needed it to have. I am amazed at how quickly I read and fell in love with not only Gale and Ashlin's story but also with Daniel, Sophia, Devlin, and Colett.

I can only say that I can only read this once. As much as this a beautiful story, it is a freaking gut wrenching one as well.

This was actually an enjoyable read despite the bittersweet moments. I admit when I questioned the family tree that Ashlin researched I skipped to the ending and I was shocked and most especially saddened by her great great great grandparents' story.

Predestined Heart is captivating and tells a dual story of Ashlin's love story and Sophia's story. Sophia's story is written

A sweeping epic that was beautifully written by 2 of my favorite authors!

Predestined Hearts has it all - a consuming current day love story tied to a post-Civil War love story both taking place in Savannah, GA. When I first heard about the book from the authors, I wasn't sure how they were going to tie the past in with the present.
