*** This is the first book in this series and it ends with a cliffhanger. Intended for 18+.***
My name is Savannah Miller.
My father is the mayor of New York. One day after my twenty-seventh birthday I was grabbed from behind. A cloth sack was quickly pulled over my head, and I was taken from everything I’d ever known.
I was beaten, starved, treated like an animal, and forced to live in a room with no windows. With no sense of time and no dignity left I finally gave up hope and made a promise to myself to end it all. Unfortunately, it was going to be a slow process.
Then one night an elite group of US Army soldiers came to my rescue. I was brought to a safe house and given two options:
One—Stay under their protection and follow their rules or…
Two—Leave and be guaranteed to be returned to the savages within a week.
I chose option one.
As I work with a therapist and begin processing my hellish ordeal things slowly begin to surface. With the help of new friends and a potential new love I fight to get my life back and make choices that will forever alter my future.
This is my story…
“I love this series so much, it’s a story you can read over and over again, and fall in love with it every time!” ~ Melissa, Amazon.
“This book sucked me in right away and adrenaline induced sleepless night ensued. It was hard to put it down but a girls gotta sleep. Can’t wait to read the next on!!”~ WickedWen, Amazon.
“Next Friday, ten p.m., I’m taking you down.” Mark points a finger at me as he scoops the chips into a bin. “I will figure you out.” He laughs and stands.
I feel myself smiling and really enjoying the company of these guys. I think I may be making friends. The idea thrills yet terrifies me. Can I really be easing back into a normal-feeling life so soon?
“Good night, guys.” I wave, and they head off to their bedrooms. Logan walks me to my room and does a quick check for me. I know he is trying to make me feel safer.
“How long until this storm passes?” I glance out the window.
“Forecast says this is a big one. Will you be all right here, or should I get Abigail?”
I turn, shaking my head. “No, I’ll be all right.” I watch him light my fireplace. “Logan, thanks for tonight. You didn’t have to involve me.”
He drops the matchstick into the flames and moves to stand in front of me.
“It was fun, and I’m glad you joined us.” He waits for a clap of thunder to pass. “Try to get some sleep.
Remember, Abigail is just across the hall, and I’m two doors down, on your right.”
“Safest place you can be is in this house.” His eyebrows pinch together like he’s thinking as his eyes burn into mine.
I’m very aware of my stomach fluttering.
He moves slowly—making his actions known. “Can I see something?”
I nod, feeling very comfortable with this man.
He brushes my hair away from my face and runs his hot fingers along my temple, stopping at my cheek.
I fight to not close my eyes and bask in the warm feeling that’s spreading throughout my body. I let out a small puff of air that I hadn’t realized I was holding in.
His eyes close. He looks like he wants to say something, but stops himself. “Good night.” He drops his hand and heads for the door, but stops. “Oh, and, Savannah?”
I turn to look at him, still feeling the touch of his hand on my face.
“Please call me Cole.”
Wait! What…your name is Cole…Cole Logan?
