I read "His Destiny" the 5th book in Sheila Kell's HIS series without having read the others in the series. I enjoyed the story without doing so, however I want to know more about the other characters and their stories.
This is the story of Trent and Kelly. Trent is struggling with survivor's guilt after losing a close friend and Kelly is grieving the loss of her fiance as she carries his child.
Two damaged souls come together in this sexy, action-packed tale.
I look forward to reading the earlier

His Destiny by Sheila Kell a fab four-star read. This is the fifth book in the His (Hamilton Investigation series) romantic suspense series. The books don’t have to be read in order but if you don’t you won’t get the whole picture. The reading order is His Desire (Book 1), His Choice (Book 2), His Return (Book 3), His Chance (Book 5) and the His Destiny (Book 6). Each book’s main focus is a different couple, and this time it’s the turn of Trent and Kelly. I don’t want to reveal the story and giv ...more

Tissues are needed for this one. To watch Trent deal with his injuries, losing a friend, the revelations about who he is, a friend in danger and his blossoming feelings for her was fascinating. Sheila Kell tackled many issues with finesse and grace while still giving us a action backed, saucy tale that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Trent is lost and angry but over time as he faces things he realizes that Jamie was right and he needs to move forward. As he sees the danger Kelly is in he goe

I have thoroughly enjoyed all the previous titles in the HIS series, and I was looking forward to reading Trent's story, and it didn't dissapoint.

Trent and Kelly are a pair of endearing, complex, and dynamic characters. Trent is a bad-ass, alpha, with strong protective and caring instincts, that come to the fore front when his best friend finds herself pregnant, and alone, after the unexpected death of her fiancee.

A story with a great blend of intrigue, danger, action and suspense. I

I have enjoyed this series, and this installment really blew me away! It's been a while since I've read the previous book (amateur, I know) and I have to admit that I didn't remember a ton about Kelly. I know we've met her before, but I was hazy on the details. Luckily, this book stands alone well (although you will certainly enjoy it more if you read the previous books) and I really came to like and respect Kelly. And then there's Trent, who I just adored. He is battling some demons, but his lo ...more

I am new to both this series and this author, so I was interested in finding out how I would like both .
Through no fault of the author ,at first I was a little lost since the main characters and secondary characters have been in previous stories and had a history. Due to this , It took me a while to get into the storyline .
That said, I have to say that I enjoyed Trent, and Kelly. They were well developed characters. Trent has his own demons to overcome, especially after his injury, loss of a fri

HIS Destiny is the fifth book in the HIS series by Sheila Kell, and I will admit here to having missed book four which is Devon and Rylee's story. This MAY have affected how I've read Trent and Kelly's story, but I can't be sure.

After the blast that took Les' life, Trent went through his hospital stay as stoically as possible, with his only intention of escaping everything as soon as he could. He feels smothered by his new-found 'brothers' and won't even allow his best friend Kelly in to see him

Lovely read again from Sheila Kell. I liked how Kelly and Trent's story unfolded. Good characters and again a good blurb and suspense to solve.
Like all other books in the series it ended with a HEA. I like the family dynamics in this series. It really is heartwarming how these brothers and sisters (either by blood or by marriage) stand for each other. I wish everyone could have a family as supporting as the Hamiltons.
Well written and edited book.

The love and support they show each other is amazing. It was so great how the all banded together to help Kelly. It was great watching Trent realize that he loved Kelly along.

Oh, His Destiny is so "a MUST read".
I am not going to spoil the story but if you don't read this series then you are truly missing out.
I came to this series starting with book 3, so reading them out of order is possible but if I could do it over I would read in order.
Sheila Kell is a talented writer who has a few books under her belt.
Go on and give her a go, you won't regret it.

Kell has another great romantic suspense with His Destiny. I was looking forward to reading Trent's story and I was not disappointed.

Great characters, high emotion, and tense situations make this one that will keep you up past bedtime. The characters Kell creates are each unique, with their own personality and emotional baggage. Trent and Kelly bring more than most. The plot was interesting and suspenseful with plenty of steam.

I highly recommend this book and the entire HIS series to fan of the

Another great read from Sheila Kell! Trent and Kelly's story had me riveted from start to finish. Bringing back Kelly from AJ and Megan's story was a great way to see the connection of the characters beyond the Hamilton family.

Looking forward to the next HIS installment!

Another great book about the men of H.I.S. security and this one is about Trent & Kelly. They have been best friends for a while and been there for each other in the past but when Trent gets seriously injured he turns everyone away, escaping his problems by running away with a friend who is dying of cancer. Kelly has been in love with Trent since she met him and was tired of waiting for him to see her as more than friends, so she gets engaged to her high school sweetheart and they are expecting ...more

Have a box of tissues ready when you read this book. You'll be crying your eyes out by the end of it. Sheila Kell has written yet another great installment of the HIS series. Trent McKenzie is struggling with survivor's guilt after the loss of one of his closest friends. Kelly Williams is trying to find how to cope and move on from the loss of her fiancé while she carries a child.

Having read all the previous books in the HIS series I was familiar with the characters of Kelly and Trent and of their close friendship. They have a strong bond between them and they normally share everything that is going on in their lives with each other that is until Trent was severely injured saving his niece Amber from a suicide bomber and is badly scarred.
Trent can't cope with facing his new found family and runs away as he is filled with so much guilt after his friend Les died in the bla

Great read as usual ! Suspense and danger plus love and family , a great combination . Another great addition to the Hamilton family series ! Well worth the time !
When the last book in this series finished, Trent was lost, confused and angry. I wondered where Shiela Kell was going to take Trent.

I wasn't disappointed. Trent goes off to lick his wounds, but really he is running from the hurt and anger he feels towards Blake Hamilton and it's only when his close friend Kelly Williams is injured that he puts his pity party away and returns home.

Kelly has always been in love with Trent but she gave up waiting for him to see, now her life is in danger, her fian

Trent and Kelly are both in need of love and comfort and find it in each other. They have been friends for so long but he never wanted to acknowledge that the feelings were stronger. When she needs him, he is willing to confront his demons to keep her safe.

I have enjoyed this series tremendously and each one keeps getting better and better. Trent has always grown up with the men of HIS but never quite knew the reason behind that other than his mom working for the men's father. If you're familiar with the series than you know the reason was a bit more complicated than that and with this book you get the full story.

I read this story without having read the others in the series. I was able to enjoy the story without doing so but it did make me want to know more about the other characters as the events of previous stories are part of the story line. I enjoyed the story of Trent and Kelly. Both leads are feeling guilty....Trent for his actions and Kelly for her feelings. I was happy at how they both overcame this and resolved to be happy with their lives. I have other books in this series sitting on my Kindle ...more

This is the fifth book in the HIS series. I've been waiting for Trent and Kelly's story and it was well worth the wait.
After nearly losing his life saving his niece, Trent left, left his brothers, his family, the HIS (Hamilton Investigation and Security team), everything that mattered. Kelly is pregnant and just lost her fiance in a hit and run accident. That may not have been an accident at all. When Trent learns that Kelly may be in danger, he comes back home to help prote

When Kelly's fiancee dies after being hit by a car and other "accidents" seem to keep happening to her, the one person that keeps coming to mind is Trent. Trent runs away to try to come to terms with his life after learning who his father and siblings are and losing a friend when a bomb goes off and he ends up with 3rd degree burns across his back.

This is my first book in the HIS series and I loved it. Sometimes I felt like slapping Trent, so he could see what was in front of him all along. The love Kelly had for him. It wad suspenseful and romantic. There were sad times and happy times. I was a page turner. I was drawn into the story. I look forward to reading others in the series.

This is the fifth book in the His Series and features two damaged souls, Trent and Kelly. An emotional roller coaster with lots of suspense and drama. A real page turner.
