    3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars. This was a re-read. I read this when it first came out in 2004 with a re-read at least once since then. I was looking for a comfort read and decided on a classic Radclyffe. I enjoyed it, it was well written but it is not my favorite Radclyffe (Passion's Bright Fury).

    One of my favorite Radclyffe books. I love how you can see the relationship building between the two main character's, the tension between the two, and come on... who doesn't love some good ol' fashion steamy scenes!

    I don't know what to feel about this book. I mean it wasn't a bad read or anything but it somehow feels incomplete. It might just be the nitpicky person in me but I was expecting more for some reason. i liked this book but I don't knwo what it is that makes me feel a wee bit wierd. But let this not deter you. It's a great book with a sweet story. Most of the stuff makes sense and you are somehow lost in the book. I somehow felt parts of the story were incomplete but anyhow it was a sexy story. Don't let my nonsense stop you from reading this book. It's a nice romance story with reasonable amount of angst. basically it's very neat :)

    This book will always be a bit special for me. It was my first introduction to the magic of Radclyffe and my first book in English. I only read a few years, and the genre lesbian books is not really expanded in The Netherlands. So I was soon looking for other books. When I discovered that there was a very large market in English books, a new world opened up for me. Fated to Love was the first book that I was reading, and yes, I was immediately hooked. Since then I read only English books and I am a big fan of Radclyffe, Gerri Hill, Gun Brooke and other writers published in English. Fated to Love has everything that makes a book great for me. A good story, in-depth characters, chemistry, a slow built romance, and it's hot! Oh my god, Radclyffe writes good sex scenes. There is always a good balance between emotional and very sexy . I enjoyed every page. Fated to Love will always be the book for me where it all began. My love of books and my endless quest for more rare gems such as this book.

    I read this book as it was listed as a favorite of many Lesfic readers(Thank you VLR for your followers many informed suggestions) What a great novel. Radclyffe at her best.The old adage of write what you know shines through in this medical world romance. While it's obvious the author knows her trauma surgery and medical terminology she doesn't swamp the reader with her knowledge. Instead, she uses a threatening medical condition as a plot device to add to the struggle Honor faces when dealing with her new feelings for Quinn. Add an adorable kid, an understanding mother in law and some incredibly hot sex scenes and you have a real winner. Awesome read.

    Classic Rad. Nice diverting read filled with all the medical jargon you would expect and the sureness of touch that all her books have.

    New Comment (see below)The two main characters: Quinn Maguire and Honor Blake. There are abundant descriptions of Quinn: "... jet black hair, sapphire blue eyes, slightly above average height, lean and tight and boldly handsome. Cocky, too"... yada, yada, yada. Very few descriptions of anyone but "handsome" Quinn.I wanted to read this because it had a high rating. Not sure why the rating was high. This seems more like a story of a character that the writer wants to be.This book should NOT be on the Listopia: Best Femme/Femme Couples list. I wasted money on someone's lie and lezfic is NOT cheap! Rant over. :)Anyone want this book...email me with your email addy and I will send it to you. It is in mobi format. Or, I will trade it for femme/femme

    Though the romance was okay, the dialogues were a bit underdone and not so subtle. Sometimes, repeated easy lines such as you're beautiful, I want you, or I want to touch you made it a bit boring.

    Although I think Radclyffe's at her best when she's writing about what she knows (she was a surgeon, apparently and I tend to find her medical story lines more compelling) it's never a good sign when I actively dislike one of your characters. If you've read Radclyffe before, you know these women already (the butch with a soft center and the tough femme), but this combination/dynamic just didn't work for me this time. All of the power in the relationship rested with one character (the one who doesn't have a chronic, life-threatening, life-altering medical condition) who came off as self-centered and controlling rather than withdrawn. This felt rushed and a bit shallow in terms of characterization and story.

    I like this author's work. Light and fun to read. I can always see her characters as being part of my friend group.

    Fated Love... Great story.. very well written I love the characters but Im not into butch characters O preferd Femme but I still love Quinn I just imagining her as Megan Fox ( Jet Black Hair and Deep blue eyes *yumm* Im just wanna know how long is her hair. I enjoy the intensity in Hospital scene and How cool the Doctors are. Tha hot scene didn't disappoint me, it was great and lovable.. The developement of feelings is amazing too. But Im thinking why I wasn't engage or hooked by this book?? Unlike the other book the I can't for get their character. Maybe bcoz of how the writer describe her charater maybe I'm looking for more passion or how in they are to each other.. Thank you Radclyffe for this amazing book!!

    A friend of mine came up on this book by accident and gave to me to read when she was done. we both fell in love with her writing. i usually hate purely romance novels but i love her work. i have been looking for new lesbian authors to explore and i am glad i know of her now. i love the book from beginning to end. could not put it down. i am done with it and have already started on another one by her. this book is awesome even if you don't like romance novels... two thumbs up :)

    Quite a hot and convincing romance story. Likeable, interesting multidimensional characters. It's not revolutionary but It's a safe choice if you're in the mood for a feel good love story that is well written. You can hardly ever be disappointed with Radclyffe, she knows her stuff!

    One of the best romances I have ever read, and I have now read it 3 times; absolutely beautiful

    So, long story short: half of it is soft-angst and the other half is one hundred percent 'E'. And of course that's not a complaining.

    My favorite book by Radclyffe. I know I've read it at least six times. Sometimes there are stories that grab hold for me this is one. I don't ask why I just re-read it and enjoy.

    I truly enjoyed this love Honor and Quinn and even the other supporting characters. The only thing I did not like was the abrupt ending would love to read more about the main characters though.

    Excellent readI am a voracious reader and have been trying to be more careful about how much money I spend a month on Kindle books. I've opened the credit card bill to find three digit figures many times, so I try to mix in some Kindle Unlimited selections and be mindful of the budget. I certainly have my favorite authors and purchase from them when they have a new release, but again, I try to search the KU list when I'm just looking for something new.Okay, so here's my problem. Radclyffe has a huge list of publications, and typically when I read a book that I REALLY like, it makes me want to read the author's other works. It's not that I haven't read a Radclyffe book before; I absolutely love the Rivers Family Romances and own the 4 she has thus far published. It's an excellent series, but I've restrained myself from going further down the rabbit hole of wanting to devour all her works. That is, until I stumbled upon this book. I saw that it had over 90 Kindle reviews with a 5 star result. That's pretty big. I started reading the reviews claiming this may have been her best work, and I had no choice but to check it out. I have to say I agree with those claims and now I'm hooked to check out NIGHT CALL because it's supposed to be next in the series. I absolutely loved the characters in FATED LOVE, so now I'm going to read the next book just to get a mention of them, though I'm sure I'll fall in love with the characters in the next book as well. There goes my budget.

    I really enjoy the genre conventions of the romance novel. I like the plot arc, the feeling that I don't have to worry about the intrusion of tragedy or failure or defeat into the narrative. I like the emotional register, maudlin and bittersweet and generously loving. I like the breathless cheesiness of it all, as spectacle, the lack of pretension.But most romance novels are really hard for me to enjoy. Even "liberal" romance novels feel like they are coming from a conservative headspace to me, both in the centerpiece romance, which is often heteronormative, marriage-oriented, and sexually exclusive, and in the larger trappings of the world, which all too often measures success and failures with heuristics coming quite blatantly from the conventions of mass society, by money or looks or individual achievement in a way that seems both lazy and counterproductive.Fated Love avoids only one of these conventions: it's certainly not heteronormative. You kind of start wondering whether there is anyone at all who isn't a lesbian after a while. But it exhibits all the other features I dislike. It is suffused with the same old sexual exclusivity and the protagonists are all young, rich, white professionals. But even that little frisson of difference from making the couple gay was enough for me to set aside my criticality enough to enjoy myself.

    ***No Synopsis***Spoilers***I have read a fair share of books by Radclyffe, but this is the first stand-alone I have read. I would actually give it 3.5 stars. Perhaps because the genre has evolved considerably since this book was first published, it seemed a bit flowery and melodramatic to me. The story is told in the third person alternating between the points of view of the two main characters. The fact that these two women developed a "soul mate" kind of love, so quickly seemed far fetched to me even though this is typical for this genre. It could have been due to the heavy handed descriptive passages about their intense feelings, their inner monologues and the sex scenes. I did like each character and I thought they felt right for each other. I just think the book was a bit on the heavy-handed side. When Quinn finally does have an incident with her heart, it is so minor and resolved so quickly I felt like a real moment for drama was missed. Finally, when Honor did come around to a place where she could say that she loved Quinn, it felt abrupt and was part of a marriage proposal. I know it is sacrilege to give Radclyffe three stars, but I just wasn't wowed by this novel.

    This was my first FF romance in years (and I can't even remember the one other book I read), and being a MM romance connoisseur, I wasn't sure what to expect. This book has a high star rating on GR, with many glowing reviews from readers, but all I can say after reading it is, "Meh."I don't know if this book is typical of FF romance, but I felt that the pace was way too slow. It took forever for the MCs to finally get together (get physical and more serious), and the process by which they eventually got together was too flowery, angsty and mushy. I like looks of longing, and romantic statements, but sheesh... I was skipping pages to get past it.It's probably not fair to the book since I am coming at it from being a voracious MM reader, but I think I'm going to stick with my down and dirty, rough and tumble MM romance and leave the FF for others.

    I'll give Radclyffe one thing. Well, at least one thing. She can write a sizzling love scene. I liked this book overall, but didn't love it so much I'll re-read it again. A few times I found myself irritated with Honor, but if I pull back and look at the overall story, it was a really sweet love story of two people suffering from loss. Those can be some of the most poignant stories, and this one had its strong moments. It had a couple too many love scenes for my taste, so that I was skimming them by the end, but that's just a personal preference. I loved the minor characters--Phyllis, Arly, and Linda, especially. As usual with Radclyffe, it was well-written. Overall, it was a quick, interesting, cozy read.

    Another amazing book from Marie Force. As she always does, this 11th book in the Sam & Nick series kept you guessing right up til the end. Filled with romance, danger, along with Sam, Nick and family, I read it in one sitting. Do you need to read the previous books to enjoy this? You don't.I will confess though that anytime a new book comes out in the series I always re-read the whole series before the newest. A preference all my own.Can't wait to visit Sam and Nick in the future.

    Wow. This book blew me away. It is my new favorite book. This was the first Radclyffe read for me, and my expectations for her writing were pretty high. I was not sure if this book would be the right choice for me, as the blurb implies that infidelity might occur. I am so glad I chose to read it anyway! What a beautiful and moving novel. Easily 5 stars.

    The most delicious slow build...Not bored for even 1 second! I love how this book doesn’t follow the same romance archetype of love/conflict/ love. It’s all conflict and love mixed through until the end and I am down right smitten.
