Dreams or nightmares. Truth or lies. He can’t tell them apart. Then he discovers the woman who has haunted his dreams is real. Is she his future? Or his past?
After an accident ten years before, Matthew St. Clare’s new face makes him look a decade younger than his fifty-two years. The worry lines from his job as the deputy director of the CIAs most covert teams has turned his hair white. He can’t afford becoming attached to anyone because it puts a target on their back, so he keeps his affairs casual. But his dreams are hot and steamy, filled with love and desperation, always with the same woman. Always ending in the same nightmare of darkness and fear. Matt thinks he’s going crazy…until he sees her.
Former Army Lieutenant Elizabeth Kamp just buried her second husband. He wasn’t much of a loss. Not like Special Forces Captain Mason Sinclair who had been taken from her in an explosion while together on a mission. She doesn’t need another man in her life, but when someone tries to kill her, she’ll accept help from a saint to protect her children. But can she protect her heart from him?
A Love Never Forgotten was originally published as ‘Never Forget’ in the Love Under Siege Anthology.
I read this book as part of the Love Under Siege Anthology, it is a favorite.
Once again KaLyn has me biting my nails. Now I know the CIA does scary stuff, but man this is really terrifying.
Elizabeth lost her husband of less than a day ten years ago in an explosion overseas. Now she is burying her second one, a victim of an auto accident.
Matthew is Gabe’s second in command, he’s been having dreams of a silvery-eyed woman and a lot of circumstances that seem real but couldn’t be, could they?
He meets the woman haunting his dreams at her husband funeral. More than that he seems to recognize her former teammates, but still not really.
This is a favorite scene.
Her vision was blurred by tears when she looked at Gabriel. “I can’t thank—” She couldn’t finish the sentence. The man who arrived with Gabe now stood three feet behind him in the same spot her son had occupied for the past half hour. He’d taken off his aviator sunglasses and was wiping them with a lens cloth.
He looked up and met her gaze.
Elizabeth couldn’t breathe. Her lungs refused to work.
She blinked, and blinked, trying to sweep away the water so she could focus. She removed her sunglasses and dabbed her eyes, then looked straight into his.
His whole body jolted as though they had been connected by a live wire.
No. It couldn’t be.
Her gaze tracked to the gravestone. Mason A. Sinclair. She stared at the final date as if she needed confirmation of his death.
Slowly, she dared to look at the white-haired man with the face of an angel.
The edges of her vision narrowed until all she saw was his light brown eyes and the golden circle around the iris.
The world went black.
In her mind, she was falling into her own grave, meeting Mason in the next world, as every muscle in her body gave up.
Love Under Siege. KaLyn Cooper. Never Forget. (Kindle Locations 637-647). Kindle Edition.
As Matt insinuates himself into her life, he learns more things that worry him. Protecting her and her children is foremost on this list.
I can’t wait for the next book in this trilogy. I loved the mention of the Black Swans and Uncle Tom Callahan.
This is an intense, romantic, scary, and emotional book. I loved every minute of it.
5 Contented Purrs for KaLyn!
KaLyn Cooper’s romances blend fact and fiction with blazing heat and heart-pounding suspense.
Twenty-two years as a military wife has shown KaLyn the world, and thirty years in PR taught her that fact can be stranger than fiction. She leaves it up to the reader to separate truth from imagination.
She, her husband, and Little Bear (Alaskan Malamute) live in Tennessee on a micro-plantation filled with gardens, cattle, and quail. When she’s not writing, she’s at the shooting range or on the river.
