D.C. paralegal Jezebel Stone’s tardiness often gets her in trouble, but this time it leads to meeting her dream man. Her choice of metro seats places her on track for finding love again. But when their ride ends in a fiery crash, their separation sends her on a mission of reuniting with him and finishing their fateful trip.
But instead, it entangles Jezebel in the twisted lives of those determined to destroy each other. This prickly path also holds the potential of leading Jezebel to an unlikely place of joy. Finding joy seems impossible when life is literally exploding all around her.

Available to buy from…
“Jones is a gifted author with a talent for sharp, fast-paced prose that keeps the pages turning. Late for Fate moves at a thrilling pace. It’s studded with sharp-edged, witty dialogue and quirky characters that stuck with me long after reading. Jones’ knack for creating stories that feel familiar but are unique in voice and plot make every read (including Late for Fate!) a great one.”
~Kathleen Shoop, best-selling author of the Letter Series and After the Fog
“Ms. Jones has perfectly captured how one moment in time can change a life for both good and bad. Excellent story with well written characters and a terrific (sometimes terrifying) theme. A great read. Highly recommended.” – Amazon Review
“Lori has shown an extremely deft touch. I enjoyed the entire reading experience in second attempt at authoring. I enjoyed the characters, the quick pacing, the brushes with fate, the witty banter and the slick manner in which Lori handles the alternating points of view.”
– James J. Robinson,Jr.
“Scene-stealing Nicole had me laughing out loud. From the opener, I was hooked.”
– Carolyn Menke
Late For Fate takes a simple premise – is destiny behind the choices we make? – and explores it in a highly enjoyable, suspense thriller. The story, of paralegal Jez’s near brush with death on the Washington Metro and her romance with the man who survives alongside her develops deftly into a tale of love and revenge with Jones’ feisty female lead being carried along without a clue that she is a pawn in a game she knows nothing about.
The reader finds themselves wanting Jezebel to wake up and take control of her own destiny before her heart is broken.
There are plenty of strong characters and even some political intrigue – certainly enough to keep fans of many of the US TV dramas happy. Dodgy wannabe senators and drama queens rub shoulders with some memorable co-workers and then there’s the handsome but rogueish Kirk…..
