The job I took was personal for my boss, but my
abduction quickly made it personal for me.
There’s no forgiveness for the things they made me
do to her.
It would be easy to point fingers, but what about
the part of me that liked it?
Something triggered that sickness and left me
I made a choice to protect her when I could, but
the need to hurt her again is always in the back of my mind.
The crazy thing is, I see that same darkness in
her eyes when she looks at me.
If we survive captivity, there’s still no guarantee
we’ll survive each other.
Ayla would do anything to ensure the safety of her sister so when she is abducted for the purpose of trafficking, she doesn’t fight back in order to protect her. She is forced to do things that no one should have to and the only thing that made it bearable was Nash, a fellow participant.
Originally Nash was sent to investigate the cartel however rather than being the person who took them down he finds himself a victim of their activities and he is drawn to Ayla despite what they were forced to do. Getting rescued should mean that it was all over but they are about to realize that the aftermath of what they experienced and the danger is far from over.
Ayla and Nash were living regular lives until evil penetrated their world. The experience has changed who they are with the only constant being each other so even though they may not be able to slide back into the lives they left they might just be able to help each other heal and find a way forward.
Meet Marie James:
Let’s see…where to begin…
I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0.
The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh
lines are more pronounced than ever.
I have an amazing husband
(Married just over 15 years.)
We have two boys we’re doing
our best to raise as respectful gentleman.
I have a master’s degree in
criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until
deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually
always some criminal/law element to my novels.
If I’m not writing; I’m
My favorite genres recently are
bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic
teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that
I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)
I love coffee. I miss carbs.
Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.
