WHAT SHE DOESN’T KNOW MIGHT KILL HER: Hedi looks normal. Yet that’s taken effort. Her fellow Starbucks baristas don't see her pointed ears, fae amulet or her dark past, and normal is hard for a half-fae, half-werewolf on the run. Hedi’s life changed ten years ago, when her parents were murdered by unknown assassins. She’s been in hiding with her loopy aunt Lou since, as whatever they wanted she’s determined they won’t get it.

Things change when wolves capture Lou, forcing Hedi to steal to free her – for if she can offer up a fae amulet like her own they may trade. But it belongs to a rogue werewolf named Robson Trowbridge, who betrayed Hedi on the night of her greatest need. Over forty-eight hours, Hedi will face the weres of Creemore, discover the extent of her fae powers and possibly break her own heart in the process.

‘A well-crafted world, a great story and dynamic characters … this book has them all’ Karen Chance, ‘A fascinating fae world that will have you howling for the next book. I loved it’ Suzanne McLeod, 'What a delicious read … Get this book!’Darynda Jones

Praise for this book

"A true storyteller with a tough heroine and an original and engrossing tale. Reader beware, if you pick up a Leigh Evans book, you won't put it down until the last page." - Patricia Briggs

"It's rare to find a debut novel with a well-crafted world, a great story and dynamic characters, but this book has them all. I was grabbed early and hooked to the very end. I eagerly await the sequel!" - Karen Chance

"What a delicious read! THE TROUBLE WITH FATE is chock full of fun twists and sexy diversions, one of them named Robson. Leigh Evans is definitely one to watch. Get this book! You will not be disappointed!" - Darynda Jones

"Leigh Evans' brilliant debut, The Trouble with Fate, has a likeable, light-fingered heroine with smarts, a tough sexy hero with troubles, and a glimpse into a fascinating fae world that will have you howling for the next book. I loved it!" - Suzanne McLeod

"Her first time at bat, Leigh Evans has hit one out of the park. THE TROUBLE WITH FATE is the perfect mix of romance and action, with characters you can't help but root for and a twist that had me squealing with surprise. Evans offers a brilliant new take on fairies, werewolves, and magic--and this book is urban fantasy and paranormal romance at its best. I am officially addicted." - Chloe Neill

"I loved THE TROUBLE WITH FATE. So fun and fast-paced. Leigh Evans takes everything you think you know about urban fantasy and throws it out the window, creating a world that's fresh, a heroine that's enthralling, and a world that's as complicated as it is engaging. I can't wait for the next book." - Nicole Peeler
