Lies. Deception. Betrayal.
Within less than twenty-four hours of proposing to the love of Gray's life, Liva disappeared. No note. No trace. No explanation. Nothing. Now, five years later, she’s resurfaced and Gray will stop at nothing to make Livia his again. But is love enough to forgive an unforgivable wrong?
Livia had less than sixty seconds to make a decision that would change her life forever. She sacrificed. She suffered. She survived. Now that she's back, she's determined that no one ever discover her shameful secret - especially the only man she's ever loved. But will hiding the past destroy her future?
Livia Kingsley used to be the kind of girl who believed in fairy tales. She met her Prince in a boy who was as gorgeous as he was persistent and when he asked for her hand in marriage, she thought that they would live happily ever after.
Until a horrible monster forced her to leave the fairy tale and her one true love behind.
Now years later after a harrowing escape, she’s trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She never imagined that she would ever come face to face with her Prince again. But he’s no longer just a Prince. He’s a King. A King named Gray.
“It’s funny how the mind can so easily fool itself. With the loss of someone you love, you trick yourself into thinking you’re managing, coping, living. But you’re not. You’re simply existing.”
Gray Colloway’s heart has never really recovered after his Livvy disappeared after promising him her future. He tried to find some kind of consolation in building his family business into a successful empire.
Just when it’s finally all coming together, he sees her again and all of those feelings come rushing back. He’s learned not to make the same mistake twice and this time he’s going to finally claim his Queen once and for all.
But will the secret that Livia holds so close destroy their future as sure as it destroyed their past?
Forsaking Gray is an emotional tale of sacrifice, love and hope. K. L. Krieg really made her characters run the gauntlet and their path was far from easy. But that just made the sweetness of their triumph all the more euphoric in the end!
If only all fairy tales were as sultry as this one…
Exclusive Excerpt -
“Convince me you don’t love me, Livvy and I’ll walk. You can run and this time, I won’t try to find you. But if I don’t believe the bullshit you’re about to try to shove down my throat, fair warning, angel. I will be relentless in my pursuit of you. Last time was nothing compared to the lengths I will go to in order to make you mine again.”
About The Author -
I'm just a regular ol' Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It's a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there's love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell...who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I'm a huge creature of habit, but I'll tell you I'm flexible. I read every single day and if I don't get a chance...watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I'm direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don't ask, it's a thing).
I love both reading and writing stories that feature alpha males and strong, independent women who bring them to their knees. Literally to their knees. We all know women DO rule the world, after all. But shhh...let's keep that secret just between us girls. ;)
