Fiona Galloway has known since birth that she is one of the Fated Six chosen to break a centuries-old curse handed down by her ancestor. She is a powerful witch with a gift for healing, is skilled at potions, and can use her air element with a twitch of her fingers. She races toward danger when most run away. Her weakness, however, is trusting people, especially if that person is a too-sexy, charming, affable guy who was forced to participate in their destiny and clearly doesn’t want to. But geez, his allure is weakening her defenses, making her crave the impossible, and she should know better. Love has never been an option. Well, until now.
Destiny is calling…
Riley Meath’s family history is a thing of nightmares. One of his ancestors killed a Galloway during a witch trial, and the two households have been at odds since. Legend states when three-by-three from each family are born, the spell that has riddled both bloodlines with the inability to find and keep love can be broken—if they can join forces in performing fated tasks. Step one has already been completed by their younger siblings, but Riley and Fiona are next, and they’ve never gotten along. They’re in a race against the clock and fighting a brotherhood of hunters to fulfill their part or future generations are doomed. And oh, the brilliant, gorgeous little witch is making it harder than it has to be. So why is he willingly falling under her spell?

Book two in the fated trilogy. The first book was about Kaida and Brady. This one is Fiona and Riley. They must break a centuries-old curse passed on by their ancestor. Very steamy scenes, likable characters and interesting plot. I had a fun time reading it.
Thanks to the publisher for the arc.
An excellent fantasy romance! I absolutely loved it... It is filled with intrigue and some suspense, beautiful characters and amazing story.. Can't wait to read more!.
Witches, curses, adventure, and quite the romance! Enthralling tale that grabs you and doesn't let go even at the last page. Great urban fantasy romance series, a WINNER all the way.
The long awaited second book in the fated trilogy was well worth the wait. Kelly Moran did not disappoint in this fantasy story. Fiona is a healing witch and Riley is supposed to be off limits because of a family rivalry. Can they deal with the "sparks" that fly between them and figure out how to stop the curse that threatens.
I enjoyed escaping reality for awhile while reading this book of witches, spells, potions and yep...romance.
Amazing book just like Bewitched which is the first book in the Fated Trilogy.
Riley and Fiona are opposites and love to banter, and argue. That’s just the way they are.
Fiona doesn’t want anyone’s help, but she and Riley have been chosen to complete the next task.
The Galloway sisters and the Meath brothers have joined forces to break a curse. There Uncle is bound and
determined to stop them.
A must read as is Bewitched.
would like to thank netgalley and the publisher for letting me read this exceptional book
a slow burner of a book and it took me a while to figure out why....as the first book in this series was action action action, this one was a subtle burn and its all because of riley
the joker of the brothers, the one who could always be relied to bring light relief to others who had also suffered very badly from his uncle
but its also about fiona, the strongest witch out of the sisters, who was the first one to stand up for any of her sisters
so when these two are fated to work together its like to different worlds colliding and both riley and fiona need each other though neither know it....and i was so hooked by their different personalities and was so drawn into this book that you just wish there was a real riley in real life...oh hum....
so riley the joker and fiona the fighter but who is the strongest out of them both when it comes down to it...man oh man what a journey of discovery
there was plenty to this story to drag you in with magic and mayhem and threats galore, but the build up to the next book has already begun and i for one cant wait to see how it all pans out and with some startling discoveries in this book the sisters and brothers have their work cut out for them with their fight against their uncle and his hunters
i cant wait...
The second book in the Fated trilogy is Riley and Fiona’s story. Fiona and her two sisters come from a powerful witch bloodline, the Galloways, while Riley’s Meath ancestor was a hate-filled, brutal witch-hunter who murdered the sisters’ ancestor for daring to fall in love with his son. Her final act was to curse both families until three brothers from the Meath family could unite with three sisters from the Galloway family to break the curse. In the first book, Riley’s brother and Fiona’s sister combined their strengths to complete their task and fall in love in the process, now it’s Riley and Fiona’s turn. The biggest problem is that these two have been sniping and arguing with each other in just about equal measure as the sparks that have been flying between them. Now they must set aside their antipathy and work together.
This book was slower paced with less external action compared to the first book as Riley and Fiona had a lot of internal, emotional work to do before they could complete their task. Riley is the jokester, the guy who is always laughing, but who hides his strength and depth of emotion behind his lighthearted facade. Fiona is a powerful witch, a force of nature and an independent woman who is used to solving all problems on her own and doesn’t want to rely on anyone. These two definitely have a grumpy/sunshiny vibe, but it is reverse of the usual trope. Fiona is the one who is not so much grumpy, but definitely relationship resistant while Riley is the optimistic, bright-eyed one. The only way they will succeed and find love is if Fiona learns to accept help while Riley finds his own hidden strength. Just as in the first book, it’s lovely to watch all of the sisters and brothers continue to strengthen their bonds and build a family together. My thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions in this review are my own.
A big thank you to NetGalley and the author for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This is the 2nd book in a series, but reads well as a stand alone. I have just read the first book, so this was fun. I still like all the characters, the chemistry between the two leads in this book was good. This is Riley and Fiona's story. 4 stars I actually liked this one better than the first. Can't wait for the next one.
