Dr. Colorado Jacksonís six-year-old daughter, Kayla, is ready for a new mother; her mother has been dead for two years. Colorado (Cole) isnít quite so sure about dating again. Heís sure there can never be anyone else for him because he knows heíll never love anyone as much as he loved his sweet Lanni.

This belief changes when he collides with family physician resident Destiny Moon at the Carson-Tahoe Hospital. She is aggressive and outspoken, the complete opposite of Lanni, but she still captivates him and ignites a passion he has never known. To Destiny, Cole is the most attractive man she has ever encountered, and Kayla is absolutely adorable.

As Destiny and Cole get to know each other, misconceptions and interfering family members and friends threaten to ruin their romance. Will they overcome all obstacles to finally have their date with destiny or will opposing forces waylay the two hearts?

A Date With Destiny is pretty much your average romance and unfortunately, nothing more. There is the required boy and girl attraction between two semi-interesting characters, but the writing lacks passion and the dialogue is unexciting. Kayla is perhaps the most entertaining character, and her role is entirely too brief.

I couldnít identify with Destiny because despite the fact she was a doctor; she didnít come across as a very smart person. Some of her thoughts and actions were silly to me. Cole was more tolerable as a confused love struck male, but even he wasnít enough to make this book a treat for me.

Never thought the time would come that I would pass on destiny, but this time I will.
