 PREQUEL ~  ISBN: 978-1310318382

Written after the Trilogy was complete in response to literaly thousands of requests:, this is the sweet, sexy and heart-wrenching beginning to Kahlen Aymes' bestselling series, The Remembrance Trilogy.


Brilliant pre-med student Ryan Matthews had his pick of women, but from the moment he laid eyes on Julia Abbott he was captivated.  It wasn't just her beauty, and hot body that drew him in; it was the intelligence behind her amazing green eyes and their incredible connection.  She wasn't some chick he'd bang on a Saturday night... she was the best friend he'd ever had, and he wouldn't screw that up, no matter how badly he wanted more.


Julia Abbott was astonished when the most stunning guy she'd ever laid eyes on approached her on their way out of a class.  Ryan was sex and brains all wrapped up in a perfect, beautiful package.  Every girl she knew was panting for his attention, but Julia and Ryan's connection went way beyond the physical. Though she was dying to feel his touch and yearned for his mouth on hers, she couldn't, and wouldn't, risk losing him.  For anything.  


This is Ryan and Julia's beginning; from when they met through the development of the friendship that becomes the most important of their lives. When deeper feelings of love and lust begin to intrude, both first deny then face, that a chance at romance if failed, may mean the loss of the one person who has become the very center of their universe.  It's agony... the kind you can't breathe without.

Faced with forced separation, great distance, and others who try to sabatoge them, their new relationship is tested over and over again.  Finally just as their lives are starting to gel, Julia must make a decision that leaves Ryan angry and bereft.  In light of the sacrifices she has made for him, he can hardly deny her... but will Julia choose the chance of a lifetime or the love of her life?

Close to graduation from Harvard Medical School and on the verge of marrying his gorgeous and accomplished girlfriend, Julia Abbott, his dreams are about to come true and all of their sacrifice is finally at its end. When tragedy strikes, their relationship is hurled into turmoil that leaves Ryan devastated.


His sorrow drives him to keep his distance yet leaves him aching; consumed with desire and love he refuses to let manifest. Julia is inexplicably drawn to Ryan and longs to build a future with him, but his agony over the loss of the heart-stopping memories she no longer shares with him, leaves him unable to trust that she could truly love him without the brilliant past he clings to. When love so unforgettable has been forgotten, can Ryan find enough faith to believe that Julia's heart will remember, even when her mind can't?

Julia is pushed to the breaking point. She makes a reckless decision to try to force Ryan to remember that being friends is as important as being lovers.
