'Some people believe that they will do anything humanly possible for love, and some people will move heaven and earth for it. Leigh has always believed that she fell into the first category, but as she feels herself falling for Ryan, she wonders if she's descending into madness instead, clutching madly at her ideals on the way down but losing grip every time Ryan looks at her or whispers in her ear.
'Maybe heroines in books would do better than her but hey, heroes in books have nothing on Ryan. He says he wants to be friends, but he doesn't kiss like a friend. She vows that she won't go any further than kisses, but Ryan's touch does things to her that no written words ever have. Is she foolish for having onto her archaic ideals, when such a passionate affair seems almost written in the stars for her?
'Ryan wants to prove himself to be a man of worth, given that there's nothing he knows about himself as a fact, and he knows that rising above the temptation to seduce Leigh will indeed, prove that regardless of what happened in his last life, he has earned a second chance in this new one. But how can he do that when he wants Leigh so much that he can barely remember what manners are, let alone practice them and restraint? Girls like Leigh don't come easily- and though he senses that he can take whatever he wants from her and get away with it, he starts wondering if maybe the solution to his problems is to give instead.
'But what can he give freely, without knowing if he already belongs to someone else? The author of The Hardest Fall may have all the answers Ryan needs to trigger his memories back, but as the prospect of meeting Kathryn Praser becomes more likely, he starts to baulk, drawing out his time with Leigh before the cover can slam shut between them under the weight of his former life.
'What if he doesn't want to have a soul-mate waiting for him anymore? What if he'd rather get lost in Leigh's eyes, than seek out the ones from his dreams?'
