Fate Fixed Blog Tour

BONNIE ERINA WHEELER is a lifelong resident of New England and a University of Connecticut student.

Having grown up in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, Bonnie discovered her love of writing early on, but did not begin writing novels until May 2011. As the daughter of author, Glen William Ruane, storytelling and world building is a family affair. Bonnie’s daughter, Miranda E. L. Wheeler and son, Robert D. Wheeler, share in the family’s passion and have both published in the last twelve months.

When not in class or working on her next novel, Bonnie enjoys spending time with her husband, Jerry. Together the two have been writing their own special love story since marrying in April of 1995. Their children Miranda, Justin, and Bobby give them great joy. Their family is made complete with the addition of Petey, a Spanish water dog, they adopted from their local pound.

Bonnie’s plans for the future include writing more novels in the Erris Coven Series, as well as, writing several contemporary young adult novels that have been in development for some time.

When Lexie Anderson’s mother suddenly announces she is marrying a Romanian immigrant, Lexie willingly leaves behind her busy life in Connecticut for her penance in the "Moose Capital of the World.” Small town living is strange enough, now Lexie must cope with her overbearing stepfamily monitoring her every move. They disappear into the woods at night and keep a strange secret locked in their shed. Her once calm mother is now having violent outbursts and Lexie’s little sister is hearing sinister sounds coming from the forest behind their new home. Lexie’s biggest surprise comes when she discovers the boy she has been dreaming about since her accident is living in Maine. Despite Torin’s questionable reputation, Lexie cannot resist the physical and emotional attraction pulsating between them. Animals and people in town are turning up dead and Lexie learns the strange new world she lives in has real life monsters. Just when she decides she wants to be with Torin forever, she must fight to protect her mother and sister from being harmed by a formidable evil.

My Review:
What a fresh new take on vampires and werewolves. I was pulled in from page one and loved every minute of this book so much so I bought the second book and I can not wait to start it.

Lexie’s world is turned upside down with the death of her father, her mother remarrying, getting three step brothers, and moving from the only place she knows. The only bright thing in her life is the boy she keeps dreaming about. But what Lexie doesn’t know is that Torin is also dreaming about her but he knows why. They are meant to be fated mates but Lexie’s new step brothers have a different plan for her. But when Lexie finds out what Torin is she has to look into her heart and see if she can look past it and love him before its too late and he is lost to her forever.

I loved every minute of this book. Lexie is so strong and deals with so much in the span of a year. I don’t know if I was her that I could handle all the changes but she manages and comes out stronger. Torin is just swoon worthy. He is brooding, sexy, strong, fierce, and a hero you just love to love and want for yourself. Lexie’s step brothers are the kind of guys you love to hate and they had me fooled through the whole book. I was totally shocked to find out who the actual crazy psycho brother was.

The cover drew me in first but the storyline sucked me in and kept me turning the pages until I was done. With a love story that took my breath away and a plot that left me guessing at every turn Fate Fixed has become one of my favorite reads of 2012. 5/5 Bloody Fangs

 From Bonnie Erina Wheeler, the author who brought you Fate Fixed, comes the second installment in the Erris Coven Series, Blood Twist

Braden Murphy knew he was going to die. There was a twist to his family secret – one that was forced upon him from the time he was a child. For years he envisioned his final days and tried to be strong enough to leave his family. Now that it was time, he was ready to make good on a deadly promise. Except for one unexpected glitch, a raven haired beauty insisted on joining him.

Liz Sanders thought her best friend’s stepfamily was weird, but she never would have guessed they were werewolves. Now Liz must travel with a secretive half-vampire in search of a lycanthropy cure. Landing in a nest full of blood thirsty vampires wasn’t on the agenda, but neither was falling in love.

Braden is tempting, but Liz’s feelings for him are complicated. She wishes he would open up about his past and give her a reason to trust him.

Just when Liz thinks she can let her guard down, she’s forced to confront the evil that has been stalking Braden’s past for years. Death is here and ready to destroy everything they've fought to save.

It was at that moment that Lexie felt the strangest sensation wash through her – her skin tingled like the air suddenly became magnetized.  As if in slow motion, she turned to see the most powerful blue eyes she had ever seen. 
Like my dream, but real.
Standing right behind her, he was about six feet tall and dressed in nothing but jeans and a black button up shirt. His chestnut hair swept to one side and fell across his forehead. As his friends mocked back and forth about Courtney’s crush on him, he watched them in silence, hands stuffed in his pockets. 
Lexie tried to open her mouth and say hello, but was unsure if she could. Her heart pulsed like she just went for a good run.  I am losing my mind.
As soon as she thought it, his bottomless eyes connected with hers. If words could describe the silent connection she felt when he gazed down at her, she wouldn’t have been able to keep herself from blurting them out loud.
At first his expression showed bewilderment – but with a subtle shake of his head, he gained a mixture of composure and understanding. His face softened as he smiled and the effect left her feeling a warm flush spread across her cheeks.
“I’m Torin,” he introduced.  “What’s your name?”  
Lexie knew everyone else carried on with their laughter, oblivious to what was happening between them, and she was thankful. She didn’t understand it either, but she wanted to see where it led. “Lexie Anderson,” she responded with a smile. 
There was a familiarity about him that mystified her – she couldn’t deny the sense of connection that appeared to pulsate between them. “I know we don’t know each other, but you seem so familiar to me,” she tried explaining.  I’m babbling. 
Torin edged a little closer, but she didn’t mind his nearness. He hung his head and whispered, “Can we go talk for a little while?” 

Guest Post:

Dear Readers,
I am writing in hopes that you have seen my best friend Lexie. She’s 17, cute, a little timid (at least compared to me), and being followed around by her drooling, Neanderthal step-brother. You may be thinking that I am being over dramatic about Maxim, but seriously, the boy has issues and knowing that Lexie has to share breathing space with him makes my heart ache.
Honestly, I still can’t believe what has happened. Her mom, Ruby, who is sweet, don’t get me wrong, but a complete airhead at times, has taken Lexie and her bratty sister, Ella, and have moved off to “God Knows Where” Maine. We’re talking the “moose Capital” of the world friends and not in the Rocky and Bullwinkle way. And why is this so you may ask? The “L” word – Love, maybe even a little of the other “L” word – lust. As soon as she met Dragos, the weird dude from Romania with the three teen boys, Ruby turned into June Cleaver and ran off with her new blended family to start a new life.
It sucks for me and Lexie. We had some pretty cool things planned for senior year. I haven’t heard from her and she isn’t answering my calls, that is why I‘m worried. I don’t know what she’s doing, but I need to find her. Who knows, maybe she met some sexy Maine lumberjack or something. That or Maxim finally went postal and tied her up in his tree fort or something. All I know is – if none of you have seen her, I’m going to Erris myself and figure out what is going on. She’s my best friend; she would do it for me. I won’t let anything happen to her.
Thanks for listening! ~ Liz (A.K.A. Lexie’s BFF from CT!)

I wanna say Thank you to Jaidis for letting me be part of this tour and to Bonnie for allowing me to review her book.
