The life of Jacque Winters has not been easy. After being abused by her dad as a child, she cut herself off socially. Then, out of nowhere, she was kidnapped by strangers and taken to a society dominated by men.
Despite Jacque’s promises to never fall in love, one man might just be stubborn enough to break down the barriers guarding her heart. On top of constantly being on guard from his advances, she needs to figure out whether her happiness is worth sacrificing in order to save the life she had left behind.
Below is a sample of this book:
It was a good thing I never listened to evil temptations.
I held out my hand, and he took it. His grip was warm, strong, and forcibly relaxed. John’s touch didn’t give my stomach butterflies or send electricity racing through my body. Instead, it ignited a flame of fear inside my heart.
Here was a man who was strong enough, fast enough, and smart enough to hurt me greatly. He was able to rip my freedom out from under me and was even planning on it in the near future. At that moment, I realized that being beautiful meant absolutely nothing if I didn’t have freedom.
This scenario might have been romantic if observed from the safety of a book or a movie. Being here, actually being here, it was terrifying. A confession of that magnitude might have made a crazier woman excited and thrilled. Another woman’s heart might have gone all ‘aflutter’ with the thought of John being her boyfriend. Another woman would have blushed and batted her eyelashes and said some noteworthy double entendre.
It was a good thing I wasn’t simply another woman.
I shook his hand, met his gaze, and said, “May the best one win.”
