Brooke Kennedy has always led a sheltered life. Shy, quiet, and brainy, she invested all of her time into her education to become a doctor. But when she takes a vacation halfway across the world to visit her father who is living in Romania, her tightly-stitched world is ripped apart at the seams when she is snatched into the sex trade, and sold at auction. But being bought turned out to be her salvation, and when the dark secret behind her kidnapping is uncovered, she must turn to the man who bought her in order to survive.
Romanian-born CIA operative Dorin Milosovici lives his life with his survival being his only concern. Being a street kid in Bucharest only prepared him for a life as a soldier, then a spy. When the Agency sends him back to his homeland for an undercover operation, he is less than thrilled. But when a kidnapped American woman is placed on the auction block, drugged out of her mind, he posts the winning bid in order to save her. When Brooke comes to him in danger once again, it's no longer only his survival he must fight for. His cover is blown, the only thing that matters now is getting he and Brooke back to the United States safely. He just never expected to fall for the introverted, innocent kidnapping victim in his care.
