Life is twisted and cruel.

After being ripped from the safe haven of Rafe’s arms, my kidnapper is waging a sick game. Unable to make my body do his bidding, he’s using mental warfare instead.

No kissing.
No screwing.
No falling in love.

I ache for this stranger in a way I’ve never ached for anyone.

But I didn’t know he was married, and I sure as hell didn’t see the curveball fate had in store. My clean slate in Seattle isn’t so clean after all because my new boss is the man forbidden to me.

No warning. No mercy. No way out.

The men holding us prisoner won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Rafe for something he has no memory of, and I’m their weapon of choice. Tortured and defiled, they make me wish I were back in that cabin where death was favorable to drawing another breath, but this time our captors can’t break what’s already broken.

What scares me is the madness I see festering inside the only man I’ve ever loved. I’ve taken his freedom, his career, and his reputation. Yet despite all I’ve done, he’s determined to fight for me, kill for me, give everything he is for me…

He’ll even die for me.
