Title: Fighting Destiny
Author: Amelia Hutchins
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Hosted By: Love Between The Sheets
Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae - beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?
Welcome to my world.
What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.
Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae...every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.
My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me.
She's all woman, tempting me when she shouldn’t be. She's less than I am and yet I can think of no one else, nothing else besides how she is going to feel and look when I fuck her raw. She fights me, fights her needs, and yet I can smell it on her. Every. Fucking. Time.
She's smells erotic, her wetness drenching her pink folds, I need to watch heat ignite in her vivid blue eyes as she accepts me inside her body. I want to watch as the heat from lust fills inside her endless depths as her pussy grows moist with her need while I’m driving my cock deep inside of her.
"Say it, agree to it Synthia," I growl, my cock is hard, hard as fucking steel with the need to be fucked by those juicy red lips, to dominate her completely.
She doesn't answer me, it pisses me off. "Syn…" I warn her, letting the need I feel in my cock enter my voice.
"Don’t make me forget it, please," her voice is filled with her resolve. Her answer shocks me. I would have thought she’d ask for the memory of tonight to be erased. I hate that I can't fucking predict what she does, what she says. In my world, it's deadly.
"I'm going to fuck you, hard." She needs to know I won’t be myself. I’ll be driven by the need to fuck her until she submits to me in every way possible.
Hello Amelia thank you so much for taking the time to give Alphas Authors & Books Oh My an interview. I am very excited about this interview because I absolutely LOVE Fighting Destiny. It even made it on my “Top 15 of 2013” list. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? Hi!
Thank you so much for having me on the blog. So happy you liked it, and glad to be here.
Can you describe Fighting Destiny in 30 words or less?
Mmm Dark, fast, alpha males, badass girl, and pack an extra pair of panties.
When did you realize you wanted to become a writer and made you finally decide to write your first book?
I was about ten when I realized I loved inventing stories. My grandmother used to tell me stories, and as I got older we built worlds together for our characters. Eventually I started reading my mother’s books late at night when she thought I was sleeping, and by 15 I had written my first story which was 190k in words…and horrible. It lacked a plot. I wrote another one in High School which my English teacher gave me an F on, and told me fantasy wouldn’t sell. I then wrote about her affair with the Science teacher which also resulted in an F, but that one was so worth it. After that I wrote as a hobby and this year I finally sat down and started writing to test my hand at it again.
This book is one sexy-hot-mess. Ryder is one of my favorite Fae BBF's because he is so in-your-face Alpha Male and Syn is a kick-ass-take-no-names bad-ass, where did you get the inspiration for these amazing characters?
Honestly Ryder has been stuck inside my head for over seven years. It wasn’t until this year that I finally managed to pull the story out and write it the way I wanted it to be.
Do you have a favorite chapter, scene or part that you wrote and if so why?
Mmm not really, I like them all.
What Genre do you consider Fighting Destiny and what draws you to this Genre?
Urban Fantasy and I love writing it simply because there is so much you can do with it and it is an escape from reality.
How many books do you have planned for this series or are you just going to see where the series takes you?
4-5 for this series, it depends where the character’s take me really…I’m just the tool for their story when it comes down to it, they control it, I just write it for them.
Do you have a writing ritual, set number of pages to write, or any certain things you have to have to write (music, food, etc)?
Coffee, coffee and more coffee is what I normally need before writing. I also listen to fast music while the characters show me the scene, and then I sit down and write it out.
What 3 words describe the author you want to be?
If I had to pick only three…Humble, because I want to be fan orientated, because without them, I’m just another writer. Creative, because without it the book would fall flat. Reliable, because I want to be an author that my fans can depend on.
What can we expect from Amelia Hutchins next?
The next book is the Fae Chronicles will be out this month. I plan on finishing this series, and starting the next. I have a lot of characters inside of me screaming for their story to be told. I have two other series which I have started and plan to play with this year as well, which more than likely will come out sometime next year. And of course, I plan on writing more hot alpha’s you can sink your teeth into.
Ok here are some fun questions for you. Bad boy, or boy next door?
Bad boy, all the way. They make the best characters.
Bed, floor or up against the wall?
I’m a wall girl, not for the sex though because well it’s awkward. There’s something hot about being pressed against the wall, and told what he plans to do to you…
Sleep in or get up early?
Early, dreams get lost in translation when you sleep in.
Fantasy or Reality?
Fantasy, cause reality bites ;)
Slow & Sentential, or Fast & Hard...lol?
Slow, and hard.
Thank you again for taking the time to let us interview you. Do you have anything else you would like to say to your fans?
Thanks for having me! Let’s do it again sometime ladies. I’d like to say thanks for liking the book. Honestly I’m in shock people liked it still. You are all amazing and without you, I wouldn’t be here. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love each and every one of you! Also Taunting Destiny is out this month…hope you enjoy it!

Amelia teased us on her blog with Hot-As-Hell little snippets and scenes the whole time she was writing this book so I was ecstatic when it finally came out. I gotta tell you, it was SOOO much more than I expected. This book had action, suspense, sexy vampires, bad ass witches, and Fae that make you want to cream your panties!! It was fast paced, action packed and full of pantie combusting sexual chemistry. I loved every second of it.
Syn was a kick ass, take no names, bad-ass witch to rival all bad-asses and I loved her. She is also a bit damaged from her past and doesn't let many people close to her.
"Oh Hell.No. No red room of pain," I snapped angrily. I was big into reading and no way in hell was I entering no red room of pain in this place.
Ryder UMMM Ryder!!! Damn that Fae was a bad-ass UBER ALPHA MALE Prince that made you want to obey every command that came out of his hot ass mouth. He is use to getting what he wants and he fights VERY dirty..lol Oh and did I mention he feeds on sex YUMMM!!
"I don't make excuses for what I am, or what I do. I play hard. I love hard and I fuck even harder Syn, I am what I am."
"Syn, I'm the kinda dirty that doesn't wash off, remember you asked for it,"
This book grips you hard doesn't let you up until it drops you on your head HARD at the end..lol I think some of my favorite parts of the book are when we get little glimpses into Ryder's mind through is small POV parts. I honestly loved every second of the book and couldn't put it down. It was so refreshing and a change of pace from what I have been reading lately. I think the PNR/UF genre has found a new best selling author. I know it is going straight to the top of my 2013 Favs list. I can't wait for the next one or anything else Amelia decides to put out!!

Scenes from Fighting Destiny©2013 Amelia Hutchins
Sex on Fire, Kings of Leon
"Not until I tell you to come Syn, in this place, I am your master, and you come when I fucking allow it. Your pussy gets rewarded when you please me, do you understand, or do I need to teach you how to serve me?"
Closer, Nine Inch Nails
"Ryder," I sighed without meaning to.
"Stop thinking, Syn. You keep over-thinking everything."
My lip trembled with the need to either kiss him, or run. I settled on biting it softly while his hands held me in place. The one on the small of my back came around softly pressing against the silk of the skirt as he rubbed his hand across my ass through the wispy material. He lifted my leg and placed it on the bed carefully.
I watched his nostrils flare as the glow became more apparent, and he allowed me to see the full fire that I’d created in him. "No panties?" He questioned through a guttural tone.
"You keep saying you can't, and it's a lie. You won't. You hide in the fucking past. You're not living Syn, you're just going through the motions of it. You want me, I can smell it—you need it as much as I do right now. The difference is, I can admit to what I want—you can't."
Godsmack, I Stand Alone
"I. Am. Not. You’re. Any-Fucking-Thing!"
"You will be," he said, with an air of confidence that only pissed me off more.
Puddle Of Mudd, Control
"I'm not sleeping with you. I don’t care if you're starving and writhing on the fucking floor. I'll walk over you and out that damn the door. I'll drag someone else back to you—but it won't be me you feed off of, ever."
His lips twitched, but his eyes stayed emotionless. "Writhing on the floor?"
"Writhing," I confirmed.
"I do not writhe on the floor, ever."
"Good, then we are on the same page." I said smoothly.
Carly Simon, You’re So Vain
Great, that’s all I needed right now. Smell the Dark Prince who is carrying you up the damn stairs like Cinder-freaking-rella!
Limp Bizkit, Behind Blue Eyes
"I'll be strong for you Syn, if you need it. You don’t always have to be the strong one, I'll be your glue if you want to crumble, I'll hold you together,"
“It just is, simple as that. That kind of love doesn't die. It withers the soul without the other to keep it alive. Eventually, it turns you bitter and cynical."
"No surprises in there, if you get in trouble this ends. Do you understand me?"
"Yes master," I grumbled, and then winced at the heat that flashed to life in his eyes.
"Mmm I like that word on your lips."
Nine Inch Nails, Head Like Hole
Ryder turned around and looked down at me sharply in warning. "Showtime Synthia, kiss me."
My mouth went dry. All the fluid inside my body went shooting straight to my vagina. I licked my lips nervously. "Seriously? That is like the opposite of what I just said outside."
"Prove you can do this, now." His eyes searched my face, and with the single look I melted for him. I was pathetic, a pile of fucking mush from once single look!
Stone Sour, Through Glass
"How old are you?" He continued.
"Twenty one years old. Going on one hundred."
He smiled, but it was all teeth, "Funny girl."
Snow Patrol, Chasing Cars
"I didn’t forget who I was, Syn. I knew exactly who I was and who I was with when I lost control."
Three Days Grace, I hate Everything About You
His eyes lit up, and he shook his head as more Fae magic pushed into my mind. It was painful at first, but gone instantly when his lips caressed mine. I moaned and pushed against his mouth with need for him that was so hot and fierce, that I was afraid I'd be left in a pile of ash if he didn’t continue and give me more of his mouth. When he pulled away, I cried from the loss. "Ryder."
"What's your name?" He demanded in a husky voice, filled with hunger.
"Syn. Now shut up and kiss me Ryder."
I tore my eyes away from him with a nervous laugh bubbling inside of me. He stepped in and slid his magnificent body in slowly into the water. "Relax Syn, I promise to be gentle—the first time."
"The first time?" I asked meeting his hard penetrating stare.
His eyes challenged me, but he remained silent as he pulled one of my legs out from where I had been holding them up against my body. His eyes stayed locked with mine as his fingers rubbed the pads of my foot. "This isn't going to be over fast Syn, it's going to take more than once to get you out of my system."
AC/DC, You Shook me all Night Long
I wasn’t sure I wanted to be out of his system. I should have been happy to hear it, but it sat like a rock on my chest. "You really think you can fuck me out of your system?"
Disturbed, Down With the Sickness
"No Syn, nothing with you could be that easy," he said showing his teeth as he pulled my leg and made me lose my balance in the water.
Kings of Leon, Use Somebody
"Not used to getting compliments, are you?" He said moving us closer together until my body was completely flushed with his.
"No," I replied honestly.
"I scare you Syn, make you feel things you are afraid of admitting."
"I don’t make excuses for what I am, or what I do. I play hard. I love hard, and I fuck even harder Syn, I am what I am. So if you play games with me, keep in mind I will be more than happy to play them with you and...I always win."
