"A Destiny worth following to the very last page ..."

What could life possibly hold for a woman who is born into the world as the most powerful sorcerer and prophesized to save the world? How could someone so amazing ever find true love for herself? Isabo Kelly takes this concept and wields an amazing story filled with paradoxes, adventures and romance. The answers to these questions can be found in Destiny's Seduction.

Arlana Von Fordin was born into her great-unknown destiny as a sorceress. And each year she grew into her powers so too did she grow to crave a normal life and true love. Just as her solitude could not be greater, the visits in her dreams began. A man of dark hair that offered her everything she craved. But she could not quite make out whom this dark one was. So she keeps the dreams to herself. And then one day she is summoned by her parents to meet a traveler who has come for her...a traveler of dark hair and blue eyes.

Since the age of ten, Lord Commander Oric of Browan, the First Protector has been in training to complete a mission that would see the prophecy fulfilled. But other factions have risen up wanting to thwart his assignment. Thus he must safely transport the great sorceress to his country where she will finally find her destiny. Although he is dedicated to his task, he can't help but resent her, as this was not the life he had chosen but rather destiny chose for him upon the death of his older sister. Oric's anger fuels his mission as he travels to pick up the Sorceress...that is... until he meets her in person. And then suddenly, the clarity of his goal becomes complicated as he sees Arlana, the woman, first.

Can Oric keep his rising feelings for this enchanting woman under control enough to do his job and protect her from attacks on her life? And can Arlana truly believe in his love for her as a woman and not the mighty sorceress?

A thousand-year-old prophecy foretold the birth of a child with power so great, she would control all magic and hold the fate of the world in the palm of her hand. In Fordin Barony, in the kingdom of Karasnia, the prophecy has come to pass. Her name is Arlana Von Fordin.

Arlana had spent her life questioning the enormous magical powers she was born with. She would have given up all her power for a simpler life. But Fate has other plans. Isolation and loneliness leave her vulnerable to the mysterious man who haunts her dreams. Terrifying her even as he seduces her, he poses a risk she can't comprehend. Then Lord Commander Oric of Browan marches into the barony, bringing with him a hint of Fate's plan. And Arlana faces an attraction that endangers her heart and soul.

Lord Commander Oric trained since the age of ten to take up the position of First Protector to the prophesized one, a duty forced on him by the death of his sister. He wanted a different life for himself, but fate gave him no choice. Twenty years of diplomatic and military training, twenty years of festering resentment toward the woman that would control his future, finally bring him face to face with the sorceress, Arlana Von Fordin. And his worst fears are realized. For rather than fanning his hatred, Arlana, with her beauty and unconscious charm, fans his inner obsession and desire.

Arlana and Oric must journey to the heart of Browan, overcoming assassination attempts, warrior goblins, telepathic attacks, a cryptic dragon and the jealousy of a deadly blood sorcerer. Only together can they find the answer to an ancient riddle. But will they be in time to heal the damaged magic that threatens the world?
