Présentation de l'éditeur
A battered and abused beauty…a handsome stranger with a heart of gold…and a manipulative brother with no desire to do for himself once his slave has vanished…
Becky Dupont has lost almost everything she’s ever loved, from her dear mother to her freedom, and now even the home she knows has been ripped away. She desperately wanted to be free of her tyrannical brother but never expected kidnapping as her means of escape.
Kenny has had enough of watching the pretty girl next door’s suffering and decides that it’s up to him to do something about it finally. He can’t just sit back and continue to witness the beatings, abuse, and fear inflicted upon her by her abusive brother, and since no one else seems willing or able to help, he takes it upon himself. His only option: to kidnap her and hide her away from the world for now.
Now the whole town has joined in the search for the missing woman, including her monster of a brother, who’s discovered that he has no desire to do for himself after the years of having a near-slave. Becky must make a choice in her new home—stay and hide away forever or return to the life of slavery that she was so desperate to leave such a short time ago.
With no apparent skills—or so she’s told—and nowhere to go, does Becky have any chance of a loving, happy future?
Or is she doomed to return to the life of misery that she’s shared with her brother since she was only eleven years old?
