The Future of Our Past is the first book in The Remembrance Trilogy, a truly transcendent love story of a powerful and passionate connection, like we all dream of.

This series began as the title to the second book; Don't Forget to Remember Me, and I built the story around that. I don't even know how it came to me, it just showed up in my head one day. :-) The original story evolved into what is now the first two books in the series. I never intended to publish my writing. I began writing fan fiction in the second largest genre in the world and it were the readers who encouraged me to publish a novel. They are, and have always been, the inspiration and motivation behind my work. Nothing makes me happier than hearing that I've been successful in transporting someone into a world that I created with words, where they can truly live within the pages right along with my characters.

"The author brings this couple together in a way I've never read in a story, deeply passionate and moving. The love between the two characters left me breathless and begging for more. I'm anxiously awaiting the next book."

"A new-to-me-author who was highly recommended....An absolutely breathtaking and unforgettable love story. Leaves you speechless, makes your heart race, puts sunshine in your heart while at the same time tears are rolling down your cheeks. I couldn't stop reading from the time I started until I finished...For me, this book was magical and no matter when it's available, I'll be reading this trilogy to the end. Kudos to Kahlen Aymes for a stunning debut to this trilogy."

"The Future of Our Past is fantastic, beautiful intense love story and one that I couldn't put down! I actually read this book in 2 hours and was totally captivated. Kahlen Aymes pens her characters and scenes so believable that you feel your right there with them. It's a love story that grabs your heart from the very beginning, and I can't wait for the sequel. I would recommend this to everyone that loves romance."

"First, I have to say that I'm a real bookworm. I read all the time and I like different kinds of books (biography, thriller, romance, classics, etc.).
When I first read this heartbreaking love story, I completely fell in love with the 2 main characters but also with the way the writer makes us feel what they are going through: love, longing, desire, angst and so many more emotions. I read the story many times and each time I was transported by her words. I got attached to Julia and Ryan so much that I felt sad each time I was finished with the book. And the way that the author ends the first book of the trilogy will make you long for the second book! I know that I do!!! I strongly recommend that you read this book!"


"Holy moly! This was absolutely a stunningly, beautiful book that leaves me wanting more from this amazing author. This is a debut author, and in light of the 50 Shades books and the fact that I loved them so well, I absolutely love the way this author put this book together. It's complex and intriguing, and yet it's real...Watching these two beautifully created characters was both heartbreaking and beautiful. I say heartbreaking because I literally feel each and every emotion that both Ryan and Julia felt. It tore my heart in two more than once! I say beautiful because the passion that is so evident when these two are together is amazing...And the bedroom scenes with these two.....oh la la! Oh but to be Julia for a time......I definitely recommend that you grab a copy of this beyond 5* Book worthy novel to every romance lover out there!"

"This story was, in a word, beautiful.'

"Wow! Seriously, after I finished with the last page, I immediately wanted more...This was an absolutely wonderful read; it was really beyond words. 5 Stars!"

"This book is amazing! Well-written and so romantic! I couldn't stop reading!"

"This was a very beautiful story that will sweep you off your feet until the very last sentence!"

"I really don't want to share this novel with ANYONE right now! It's so beautiful and precious. It's just absolutely amazing. 

This has been the best book I've ever read and I will compare every book I read to it. Forever. The characters were so brilliantly written I couldn't help but fall in love with them and as I turned the last page a little tiny piece of my heart broke. "
