“You get to a point where you have to decide whether or not you want to live,” he said. “You only have one hand, and your whole body’s a world of pain. And you look in the mirror and you know—” His voice hitched and halted, and he cleared his throat. “You know you’re going to be alone … and that no one is ever going to … no one …”
His breathing was fraught and heavy through his nose again, and Savannah suspected he was crying as hard as she was, so she turned in his arms again, and without looking at his face, she gathered him against her body. Her legs tangled with his, her breasts pressed against his chest, and she rested her lips to the pulse in his throat. His arm tightened around her back, and his shoulders shuddered with quiet sobs.
And then she knew, she realized in startling, terrifying detail, that Asher Lee had had no one to come home to. After years in Afghanistan, far away from Danvers, there was no one left to welcome him home. No loving parents. No friends. No one but an old friend of his grandmother’s, who agreed to come and keep house for him. He’d been utterly alone. He’d had no one left to live for, and yet he’d decided to live.
She kept her arms around his neck as he wept into her shoulder. Her own tears kept up a steady stream as she finally understood the depths of his despair, of his crushing loneliness. It broke her heart. It dented her soul.
How in God’s name had he stayed alive? With no one and nothing to return to? Unless maybe he’d known, somewhere deep and secret inside, that someday she’d come looking for him.
“Asher,” she said, eyes closed, nuzzling his neck lovingly.
“Yeah,” he finally managed, clearing his throat and taking a deep breath.
“You stayed alive, Asher. I think maybe you stayed alive for me.”
The impact of her words made him quake in her arms, and he exhaled like the wind had been knocked out of him.

About the Author:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.
In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
