From the Author
My heroine, Jill, was head over heels in love at 22 with a man she imagined she would marry and live HEA with. And then he disappeared without warning, kaboom! - not to be heard of for fifteen long years. What would you do if he knocked on your door, I asked myself?
Would I really 'know' him anymore? He wouldn't be the same man; I wouldn't be the same woman. Fifteen years is a long time to grow and change, and most of all, it's a long time to massage that memory and make it better, make it worse, make it a fantasy maybe?
I have friends who have yearned for a long lost lover, and spent a lot of time thinking, "what if?" How would my life be if I'd ended up with Him? I have personally wondered what happened to my high school sweetheart, an ex. It's human nature. I have another friend who actually married a man she loved and lost twenty years before when they met at a reunion. So far, so good with that. But I also have another acquaintance who hooked up with an old lover on the internet, and it didn't go well. He wasn't who she remembered at all - and she wrecked her marriage over it. Yikes!
My heroine, I think, shows the right amount of restraint and doubt about her own memory and emotions when Max Kallstrom shows back up in her life. She's measured, careful, well, at least for a little while. HA! I mean once chemistry is rekindled, how many of us are strong enough to throw on the breaks, even if it might be dangerous to jump in?
