I dreamt about him again, as I had many a night for years. Gray Petrokov was my first love, my everything. In my dream, he still loved me. We were lying on our sides, face-to-face, and he gently cupped my cheek in his hand and leaned his head forward for a kiss as he had so many times before. I actually felt the kiss in my dream, felt it so deeply that my lips still tingled when I woke. I felt like crying every time I had the dream. We had been so in love, Gray and I, before he left me unexpectedly in the middle of the night, leaving me feeling bruised and battered as surely as if he had hit me.
– I never thought I’d see Gray Petrokov again. I never thought I would want to—he had broken my heart when I was younger, shattered it when he left me in the middle of the night after we had been so desperately in love with each other. When my father told me I’d have to marry him, I decided to run away from my home. I’d heard dark rumors about Gray, rumors that convinced me he would hurt me in more ways than just breaking my heart. I only hoped he wouldn’t find me, that I wouldn’t have to face the heartbreak of ever seeing him again.
– I had been a bad man all my life, a hitman for the mafia who had wandered like a lone wolf picking off targets, enemies of my father’s gang. I never thought I’d be married, but when my family said that it would be Kat I was to wed, my heart leapt with hope. We’d been sweethearts when we were young, back before I left her to protect her, but I knew that it would take some convincing to let her know that I would never leave her again. When she disappeared the day of the wedding, I knew I had to find her, to hunt her down and convince her that I would never leave her again, if only she’d give me the chance.
