"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
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
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
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
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?
