Stedronsky, Kimberly: Below Unforgiven
Below Unforgiven (Movie Trilogy One)
Vivian Hale doesn’t cope. She runs.
Spending the summer in small town Pennsylvania, working for minimum wage in the old trailer-turned-video-store, Vivian longs to move on after her world came crashing down around her. She’s given up on her acting dream and is willing to do whatever it takes to make enough money to get a place of her own and start over- anything, of course, but sacrifice her pride.
Oscar winning, LA director Keaton Thorne is back home for the first time in seven years, determined to survive one weekend with his family. As best man in his little brother’s wedding, he has one job- show up with his gorgeous wife and prove to everyone in the small town that he’s better than his father had ever been.
When Keaton makes her a clichéd offer that she just can’t refuse, Vivian tries to protect her heart. She knows the difference between right and wrong.
Between moral and immoral…
Between acting… and reality.
One weekend. One man.

Below Unforgiven (Movie Trilogy, Book One)
“Vivian Hale,” I greeted him, clearing my throat. “Laney Hale’s granddaughter.”
Everyone in town introduced themselves by name and relation. Apparently, I was no exception. Maybe it was a precautionary measure to thwart inbreeding.
He continued staring, and I grew more and more self-conscious by
the second. “You have a classy name.”
Classy, like whoops, your poor parents had no idea you’d turn
out to be such a hick? I yanked on my hair too hard, trying to nonchalantly brush at the stray strands in my fingers. “Thanks. I’m named after a movie character.”
Well, there you have it. Stamp loser on my forehead and call it a day.
“Really?” His eyes lit up, and as they moved from California
gold rush to mossy green, I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt.
“Pretty Woman. Julia Roberts,” I added.
He smiled, the kind of smile that was meant to drop all defenses- and panties. “Suits you.”
No prostitute references? This was a first. At least this guy had manners. “Thanks,” I handled his comment uneasily, willing my nervous system
to quit with the rapid-fire anxiety attacks.
“I guess Snow White would have been a little too arrogant.”
Did he just compliment me?
I felt my burning vanity prickle and come to life, and I batted my sooty lashes, flirt-ready.
“Keaton, huh? As in the actor?”
He laughed, and the dimple in his right cheek interrupted his
face’s symmetry in the perfect way. “You’re a little young to know the great Michael Keaton’s work,” he challenged.
Looking him over, I arched my eyebrow. He couldn’t be more than
twenty-five or twenty-six himself. I took a step back, gesturing to the screen.
“Are you kidding me? Beaverjuice? It’s a classic.”
He groaned, and I grinned, toothy and stupid while I turned off
the DVD player. “Come on, I’ve got to be around here somewhere,” he said, scanning the movie titles on the wall. I nodded, stepping out from behind the counter.
“There you are. Right below Unforgiven.”
