Love & Fate

We met in high school. He had a girlfriend. I had a boyfriend. I thought he was cute, and the feeling was mutual. As fate would have it, arguments caused both of us to break up with our respective girlfriend/boyfriend at the same time. So, he asked me out, and I said, “Yes.”

Fate-Quotes Our date was wonderful. We talked, laughed, gazed at the stars. No kissing … after all, it was the first date. There would be more, right?

Once again, fate stepped in and my boyfriend and I got back together. My “one date wonder” and I went back to being friends. He even came to my wedding.

Time passed. My husband and I shared a lot of the same friends – attended the same parties. and remained friends with “the boy I could never forget.”

Eventually, the boy became a man and married too. I was happy for him … at least, I tried to be. Unfortunately(?), his wedded bliss was short lived. At the same time, my marriage was also deteriorating. As hard as I tried to make it work, it just wasn’t. A divorce involving children is never easy. Life as a single parent can also be a challenge.

Maybe it’s true that: “Fate determines who enters your life. Your actions decide who stays.”And perhaps there is no better foundation for true love than friendship. All I know is, no matter how long it takes, when a relationship is “meant to be”  … love will find a way.

Love & Romance,




Author: Anita Louise Romance

My husband, Mike, comes from a large and loving family of nine children, and they were the inspiration for the Adler Series. All of my books center around the important people in every woman’s life – romantic relationships, family, and friends. I do my best to take readers on an emotional journey as they observe how the characters in my stories think and feel. It is my hope that while reading, hearts will be touched, funny-bones will be tickled, and overall, lovers of romance will be uplifted and inspired. I have always been an avid reader of love stories, and my passion for romance found another outlet when I discovered how much fun it was to write about my own smart and sexy heroes and heroines. I am also an ardent and devoted student of personal development. Weaving the life changing principles that guided me to the love of my life and to a happy marriage is an important aspect in each of my novels. . Hope you enjoy getting to know all the Adlers as much and I'm enjoying them. Please look for me on Amazon and other popular sites. Also, it would be appreciated very much if you would please share your feedback with me by posting your review.
