Aya Johansen is a young nurse working with refugees in a war zone, when she’s captured by fanatical religious warriors. She’s determined to break free, even if it means compromising her own values and starting a relationship with one of her kidnappers.
Kato wants to do the right thing, but helping Aya could cost him his life – and he’s smart enough to know that if she ever escapes he’ll never see her again. That alone makes it impossible to let her go.
Will Aya be able to convince him to free her before she’s branded and sold as a slave? And if she achieves the impossible, can she ever live a normal life again and forget about Kato?
