FatefulEighteen-year-old maid Tess Davies is determined to escape the wealthy, troubled family she serves. It’s 1912, and Tess has been trapped in the employ of the Lisles for years, amid painful memories and twisted secrets. But now the Lisle family is headed to America, with Tess in tow. Once the ship they’re sailing on—the RMS Titanic—reaches its destination, Tess plans to strike out and create a new life for herself.
Her single-minded focus shatters when she meets Alec, a handsome first-class passenger who captivates her instantly. But Alec has secrets of his own. He’s in a hurry to leave Europe, and whispers aboard the ship say it’s because of the tragic end of his last affair with the French actress who died so gruesomely and so mysteriously. . . .
Soon Tess will learn just how dark Alec’s past truly is. The danger they face is no ordinary enemy: werewolves exist and are stalking him—and now her, too. Her growing love for Alec will put Tess in mortal peril, and fate will do the same before their journey on the Titanic is over.
In Fateful, New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray delivers paranormal adventure, dark suspense, and alluring romance set against the opulent backdrop of the Titanic’s first—and last—voyage.

Links to check it out/Preorder:

I am really looking forward to this book. I just learned of its existence a few days ago. First of all it has werewolves in it and that is great and then you add that it is set on the Titanic and that makes it sound even more fantastic. Ever since I learned about what happened on board the Titanic, I have always been interested and fascinated by it. The movie Titanic is one of my favorite movies of all time. I really can't wait to buy and read this book when it comes out. What are you waiting for on this Wednesday? Leave a link in the comments and I will be sure to come and check it out.

Happy Reading
