Never Let You Go
by Katy Regnery
Publication date: June 12, 2015
**I have loved Katy's writing from her very first book. Never Let You Go is part of her Modern Fairytale series of unconnected standalones, and it takes us on an even deeper journey than any of her other books. Let me tell you... it is fabulous!!!**

His eyes jerked back up to hers, and his heart thundered in his ears, blocking out the noise of the crowd around him. Feeling her name on his tongue for the first time in ten years, it bubbled up from a lost and almost-forgotten place.

Regret, betrayal, kidnapping, loss, madness, abuse, passion, love.
In this modern retelling of Hansel and Gretel, thirteen-year-old foster children Griselda and Holden escape from their abductor after three years of brutal captivity, and try to cross the Shenandoah River on foot. Tragically, one of them makes it to safety, but the other is left behind.
Ten years later, Griselda’s boyfriend drags her to a fight club grudge match, and her world is turned upside down when she watches Holden step into the ring.
Though the connection between them is fierce, bitter regret, simmering rage, and a tangle of physical and emotional scars lie between them, just as dangerous as the white water of the Shenandoah.
Never Let You Go is a story of fear and hope, defeat and survival, and two people - once profoundly broken – who discover that love is the only thing that can make them whole again.
This is a standalone novel inspired by Hansel & Gretel. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to profanity, scenes of physical abuse and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. (Note: children are not sexually abused in this book.)
For June and July 2015, 25% of all gross royalties will be donated to the Elizabeth Smart Foundation.
