Forgiving your brother's murderer may be noble, but falling in love with him borders on betrayal.

When Paige Zukowski enrolls at Granton University in honor of her dead brother, she has no idea fate will land her on the same campus with the very guy who killed him. But Logan Xander isn't quite the murderer she's always believed him to be.

A day hasn't passed since the tragedy that Logan doesn't wish he could go back and undo everything. It doesn't take Paige long to realize he's suffered as much as she has. Forgiving him for ruining her life might not be so impossible after all. But when she actually starts to like him and realizes he likes her in return, their true anguish begins

✿Interview with Linda Kage✿

Q: Do you remember how/when your interest in writing started?

Linda: Yes, I do. It started in the first grade.  My teacher had everyone in class write a poem. I wrote a really cheesy ditty about a rainbow, but the way she praised it made me feel amazing.  Ever since then I’ve wanted to write.

Q: What were the challenges (research, psychological, and logistical) in bringing this story or characters to life?

Linda: When I first thought it up, I had this secret romance thing in mind, where the hero and heroine fell in love almost instantly before they knew who each other was, and the main obstacle was hiding it from their families. But when that didn’t pan out for whichever reason I can’t remember, it turned more into a story of redemption and forgiveness. And it affected both of their families more than I thought it would. It surprised me how angst-filled it was once I actually got into writing it.

Q: What was the easiest part of writing FIGHTING FATE?

Linda: The scenes with Tess and Bailey in them. Those were just pure fun!

Q: What is your favorite scene or was your favorite to write? Don’t forget to tell us why. 

Linda: My favorite scene was in the hospital after they play dress up and Paige catches Logan smelling her hair. That’s when it hit me the most how powerful and yet forbidden their attraction was.

Q: What’s next for you writing wise that you can share with us?

Linda: Oh, boy. I’m always working on about a dozen books at a time.  But hopefully the next one I finish will be book two in the Granton University series. That one is Tess’s story.
