Sometimes, the journey is the love story.
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Love Is Never Lost by Katy Regnery is available now! https://geni.us/LoveIsNeverLostFrom New York Times bestseller Katy Regnery comes a new twist on the beloved American legend, “Rip Van Winkle.” Sometimes, the journey is the love story. On the night of his high school graduation, Ripley Van Winkle—local quarterback, prom king and all-around big man on campus—swan dives off the top of the Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse. . . and lands on jagged pile of rocks. Suffering massive brain trauma, Rip isn’t expected to live, but he somehow manages to beat the odds: most of his physical injuries heal, though he remains in a deep coma for the next twenty years. When Rip awakens two decades later, he will need to relearn his body’s most basic functions, in addition to catching up on twenty years’ worth of history, progress and change. Something called the “internet” has the answer to every question you could ever dream of asking, and people are reliant on mobile telephones smaller than a Walkman. His high school girlfriend is married with children, and he has an eighteen-year-old sister who was born while he was “sleeping.” As Rip struggles to find his place in this strange, new world, one presence in his life will become both a beacon and guide: his childhood friend, Katrina Van Tassel. But Trina has a challenging adult life of her own, and there’s no guarantee she has space in her life (or her heart) for her one-time high school crush . . . Rip Van Winkle. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Love is Never Lost is part of the ~a modern fairytale~ collection: contemporary, standalone romances inspired by beloved fairy tales.

REVIEWOh man! It’s been too long … K. Regnery just reminded me how much I missed her writing and her stories. This one is especially emotional and just a beautiful heartfelt love story. Rip and Katrina have been friends since childhood up until high school when they drifted apart. Rip is popular – local quarterback, prom king with no shortage of pretty girls falling all over him. Katrina always has a crush on Rip. Her feelings deepened as they grew up but Rip is always just a little bit out of her league. One faithful night, Rip was supposed to meet Katrina at the lighthouse. Before they had a chance to talk, Rip dived off the top and landed on pile of rocks below. For the twenty years that followed Rip was in a state of coma. Katrina never really left his side except for the years she spent at college. Katrina always believe that Rip will someday wake up. She was not wrong – Rip miraculous awakened but he is not the same. There are much to learn and to catch up on as Rip’s mind is still in the past. Can Rip and Katrina bridge the gap between past and present? Wow I just adore Katrina – she is patience, kind, sweet and dedicated. Rip and Katrina journey to HEA was not all roses and rainbow. Rip’s struggle to adapt with this new strange world at the same time slowly finding out some heartbreaking news from his past. Katrina has a demanding career and a young daughter to raise. They both have to find their places and common ground as a new couple. Rip and Katrina romance is a true testament of friendship, perseverance and unconditional love. This author once again delivered an epic modern-day fairytale. Beautifully written. Fantastic read.
