True love always finds a way in the Once Upon a Time series from bestselling author Kay Hooper. With a poignant twist on Sleeping Beauty, this short novel reunites two people torn apart by time and tragedy.
Just a week before her wedding, Kelly Russell’s world falls apart: A car accident leaves her fiancé in a coma from which doctors predict he will never awaken. At first, Kelly doesn’t believe them. But as the years pass, she comes to accept her fate and mourn the love of her life. What she doesn’t anticipate is for passion to lay dormant, hidden beneath the surface all this time—only to rise again when she least expects it.
After a decade of slumber, John Mitchell opens his eyes to a world that’s different from the one he remembers. Kelly has changed, though his deep love for her hasn’t. Gone is the carefree girl he planned to marry, replaced by a resilient survivor who moved on without him. Mitch asks for a little bit of time—a month—to prove that they’re still meant to be. But as his dreams come true, a nightmare waits in the shadows. Now, granted a second chance at happiness, Mitch must risk everything to keep Kelly safe in his arms.
Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

This is an intriguing twisted spin on Sleeping Beauty. In this case a car accident leaves Kelly's fiance in a coma. The doctors predict he will never wake up and at first Kelly fights against it but as the years pile up she knows she needs to accept the truth and move on. Then miraculously Mitch wakes. Obviously after ten years everything is different but he knows he still loves Kelly with all he has and just wants time to show her exactly how much. Danger lurks around them though. Perhaps the same danger that caused the accident that took so many years from them. Will they ever get their HEA?? A good read and one I would definitely recommend.
