Two declarations of love.
And a past that won’t set them free...
Alexander had rules. Krystina broke them. Together, they learned the hard way that life was too short to play the game. Choosing to not leave their relationship to Fate, they fell completely and irrevocably into one another. As two shattered souls, wrapped in each other’s arms, it was as if the world and all its troubles did not exist.
However, committing to love each other was only the beginning. Caught up in their blazing desire, they unexpectedly find themselves facing the shadows of the past once again. Just when Krystina thought she knew the man she committed to, more questions arise, causing her to wonder if Alexander is who he says he is. It should have been one of the happiest times in their lives, but the darkness still loomed, threatening everything they fought so hard to overcome.
Now Krystina is faced with a terrible decision: go against Alexander in order to save him or sit idly by and watch as his world shatters around him. For her greatest battle was the very thing their relationship was founded upon. Trust.
This past year has given me a lot to be thankful for. There are so many individuals who have helped me on this journey. When people say it takes a village, it is a complete understatement.
To the ladies of Team Dakota - I cannot express how much I appreciate your hard work. I also want to thank you for your patience, as I’ll probably need another Google Spreadsheet made before you finish reading this (shhh…no eye-rolling allowed). Without your amazing talents, Krystina and Alexander’s story would not have reached the audience that it did. You are simply the best!
To the beta team – as always, your feedback is immeasurable. A lot of time and effort goes into the beta process and I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to thank you enough! A special shout out goes to Amanda - thank you for making me “feel” the music again.
To Lacy and Jeffrey - for bringing Krystina and Alexander to life. Lacy, you believed in this story so much. Your words of wisdom and friendship will always be treasured. Thank you for being you.
To my mom, the strongest woman I know – you are the woman who defines the full circle. You create, nurture and transform. Thank you for your acceptance and unending support.
To my charming and witty teenagers – thank you for understanding the many late nights I spent tapping away on the computer. But, mom is now back from the writing cave. Your rooms better be clean.
To my husband…my best friend, my rock, and my number one fan. You made me believe that the sky was the limit. It was a roller coaster of a year, but your support for my writing career never wavered. I love you so much, babe.
And finally, I’d like to thank the readers. This book is dedicated to you, as words cannot define how grateful I am for the many relationships I've made with readers from around the globe. I wouldn't be able to write full-time without your continued love and dedication to my stories. Whether you picked up a copy, shared with a friend, or are one of my beloved Diva's in my Facebook reader group - you have helped me chip away at my goals one page at a time. You believed in Krystina and Alexander as much as I did, and I can only hope I did their conclusion justice. Love you all!
