Their love was meant to be.

When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRís.

But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction.

Look at that cover:  It's gorgeous!  I know, I know.  Don't judge a book by its cover -- and I'm not.  However, that blue color just draws me in.  Immediately I am wondering, "Who is this girl and what is her story?"

Just by the description alone I am intrigued.  Fate, romance, and Ireland.  I love books set in foreign locales.  I have always wanted to go to Ireland and I like living vicariously through characters since it may be a long time before I make it to the Emerald Isle myself.  

I haven't read any ARC reviews because I am looking forward to reading it for myself.
