Publisher's Summary

A huge fan of Jane Austen, Danielle hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy when she leaves Colorado to attend art school in London. Of course she knows it's silly to wish for that, naive even. But she's met enough males who lacked respect for women, a growing trend it seemed. And at 19...well... However, on only her second night there she gets lost and is threatened by a stalker who proves to be immune to her martial-arts training. Before she is completely overpowered, she is then saved by Ethan Deveroux.
While Danielle does find the romance she seeks in Ethan, he's no Mr. Darcy. Her hero is held by a spell which fractures their chance at a happy ending. During the day Ethan is closer to mortal than immortal and can date her like any other man. Yet, as the sun sets, the powerful magic of an ancient curse returns and the evil of that spell is revealed. When that magic begins, Danielle's fairy-tale romance ends because Ethan Deveroux is a vampire.

Super Sweet

What did you like about this audio book?
I read this book several years ago and was delighted to hear that it is now available in audio. I really love the mix of fantasy elements with the current world and time. I enjoyed the tight family relationships on both the vampire side and human side. The romance is sweet and clean, and the food sounds divine. I also love the unexpected direction this book takes on Vampire lore.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?
I’ve always enjoyed a good romance between vampires and humans. Fateful focuses more on the romance than the standard violent nature of the genre.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?
Yes! So much of this story is in the tiny details. The author does a great job in giving enough info to set the scene, but not so much that you lose track of the real story.

What did you find wrong about the narrator’s performance?
The narrator was fabulous. He has such a soothing/sexy voice that draws you into the story, and he gives the characters so much individual personality and emotion! If there was something ‘wrong’ with his performance, I didn’t hear it.

Additional comments:
If you love clean romance with a touch of fantasy, give Fateful a try! I’m looking forward to hearing the next audio version in the series.

Ingenious and Full of the Unexpected

If you could sum up Fateful in three words, what would they be?

Ingenious, invigorating, surprising

Who was your favorite character and why?

Danielle because she is so easy to relate to and likeable from the very start. She makes you WANT to follow her through this book and any others to follow.

Which character – as performed by Tristan Hunt – was your favorite?


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, however I quickly fell in love with the characters due to the development from the author in print and the portrayal by Tristan in the audio version.

Any additional comments?

Look out Twilight fans…this book is definitely a tough competitor in the vampire world. First, I am usually wary about listening to the audible version of books especially because I love to leave the character’s personalities to my own imagination. Schmidt (author) and Tristan (narrator) definitely changed my opinion for this book as I both read and listened to the story. I can’t express enough my unexpected surprise at how well the audio version portrayed the story SO closely to what I envisioned.

Ingenious storyline filled with plenty of the unexpected with unanticipated happenings that keep you wanting more all the way to upcoming releases. At the end of the story I was ecstatic that there would be more to come as this is Book One in a series. I fell in love with each and every character especially Danielle & Ethan who were very well developed. The highlight is that this is not your ordinary vampire plot and when done will be at the top of your recommendation list for this genre. Thrilled for Book Two!
