What would you do if what you worked your entire life to build was suddenly destroyed?
Cade Walker is a cowboy Casanova. He’s cocky and he doesn’t care who knows it. He was raised on Walker Ranch and was destined to one day take it over. What he didn’t know was how soon that would happen. After his parents are killed in a car accident he is thrust into becoming a responsible adult. Well, sort of. Cade is always responsible when it comes to business, but pleasure, now that’s a whole other story.
Suzanna Mallory is a red-headed spitfire, who also happens to be Cade’s best friend. She has loved Cade since they met when they were nine years old, but Cade just isn’t the type to get married and settle down. Suzanna finds herself in an abusive marriage and the only thing that keeps her sane is her daughter, Isabella, and working with Cade at Walker Ranch.
When a fire threatens to destroy the future of Walker Ranch, Cade and Suzanna have to work together to save it.
What will this mean for her marriage or to the feelings that she has for Cade?
And now that Cade thought he found love with Loralei Harper, only to realize she didn’t feel the same way, is he ready to settle down?
Is Cade Walker Destined to Succeed?

:A Deleted Scene from Destined to Succeed:

Branch and Suzy Q at Party
“Baby, you made it,” Branch said as he grabbed my arm and pulled me close to him. “I was beginnin’ to think you were gonna stand me up.” He leaned in and placed a soft kiss on the corner of my mouth.

“Now, why on earth would I do that?” I whispered as he kissed my cheek.My breathing was getting faster and he was starting to rub his hand up my side. When he reached my bra, my breath caught.

“I have big plans for us tonight, baby. Big plans,” he said. Then he pulled me into the kitchen and got us both a plastic cup of beer.
I was nervous, but I had made up mind. Tonight was the night. I would not go home a virgin. I was going to have sex with Branch Johnson. He liked me, I liked him – so it was a win-win situation. He was not the man I wanted to make love to for the first time, but since that would never happen I would have to settle for second best. That was probably not the best thing to be thinking right before I had sex for the first time, but I just couldn’t help it. I felt that way.

After a few glasses of beer, we started to dance. My head was a little fuzzy and Branch’s hands were exploring every inch of my body. The music was loud and my head was buzzing.
All of a sudden Branch pushed me up against the wall. He slammed his tongue into my mouth and knocked my head against the wall. He pushed himself between my legs and before I knew what was going on, he was on the ground and blood was all over his face. Cade grabbed me and started pulling me out to his truck. What the hell was happening? And why was I so happy to be in Cade’s arms?

:About Lisa:

I grew up in a really small town in Missouri. Very similar to the fictional town I wrote about in my novel. I moved to the big city right after I graduated. I work full-time and I am mom to a beautiful little girl. I started writing in October when a group I am in had a prologue contest. I didn’t win the contest, but everyone who read my prologue asked for more of my story. I decided I had to finish it and get these characters that were in my head out on paper. During the writing process it became clear that this was going to be more than one novel. It had to be a series. I have at least 2 more novels planned for the Destined Series. I also have an idea for a YA novel that stems from one of the characters in Destined to Change…hint, hint. When I was asked to write this bio I explained that I am really boring and it would be really short…so, that’s about all there is to know about me. I love music and honestly couldn’t have written this book without my Spotify playlist. I am kinda obsessed with frogs (not real ones) and office supplies are my downfall! I could spend my whole paycheck at the stationery store…boring, didn’t I already say that? lol Also, I am slightly addicted to Facebook and Voxer. Please message me on either one…I would love to hear from all of you.
