This book is dedicated to all the readers who have been such a happy part of my life for the last fifteen years. When we first met, many of you were young teenagers with bright, beautiful eyes full of dreams for the future. I hope that in the years that have passed, you've all found your dreams and that the reality of them was even better than you'd hoped.
This was the time of day when I most wished I were able to sleep.
As the night finally overcame the end of the day, I leaned forward again and kissed the warm skin of her throat.
