Destiny: 'The predetermined or inevitable path a person must follow.'
When nineteen year-old Lili McIntyre decides to trade her California summer for a mid-winter visit to Australia, it's in hope of finding inspiration and direction in the country where her father was born. She's nervous about her first overseas trip, yet excited about spending time with her aunt and embarking on what her mother insists is "an opportunity of a lifetime".
But when Lili arrives in Melbourne the first thing she finds is the last thing she's looking for--a brooding man who makes her heart race every time she sees him.
Enticed by his dark, seductive eyes Lili ignores her better judgement and finds herself drawn into a relationship that will test her very beliefs about life, reality and fantasy--and things that she thought only existed in nightmares.
Will Lili succumb to the allurement of this dark and sensuous stranger? And if so, does she have what it takes to follow the treacherous path that leads through his world of Absent Shadows?
