Heiress Kaya experiences her first taste of freedom when she’s kidnapped from her sheltered life. But as she forms an unlikely connection with her abductor, Luke, her adventure takes a strange turn. Now, as her father’s men and her devoted bodyguard scour the woods to find her, she wonders if staying in the arms of her blue-eyed abductor is the safer place to be. At least, that’s what her heart is saying—her head is saying run… 

There is nothing magical about growing up in a mountainside castle, when it’s your prison. Kaya’s ruthless and powerful father keeps her under lock and key, watched every second of the day–and Kaya’s not really sure why. She’s just a normal girl…no one special. She doesn’t understand her father’s obsession with her safety – until she is kidnapped. 

Dragged through a brutal wilderness, Kaya’s captor shows her the devastating truth, and even though he has dark secrets of his own, she is inexplicably drawn to him. When the stars are in your eyes, sometimes the line between right and wrong is blurred. Passion obliterates common sense. Love... makes you reckless. 




Everyone that Kaya loves is in danger and she is the only one that can protect them–but it requires a huge sacrifice... 

Running away and sinking into bottomless sorrow, she finds an unlikely ally in rugged ranch-hand, Thomas. He hides her from the world and offers her a new start on life. When she hits rock bottom, he is there to pick up the pieces. When she discovers that her birth-mother is hunting her from the shadows, he serves as protector and friend. And when she vows to get Luke back, he promises to help. 

The problem is, Thomas doesn’t always keep his promises. Especially when it means losing the girl he loves… 




Luke’s life is hanging by a thread and Kaya has minutes to save him.

That means going back to her father and facing a fate worse than death–and Thomas won’t have it. It’s not just their lives on the line though. The fate of many depends on Kaya’s heartbeat; Henry has a weapon of mass destruction, and he intends to use it. 

With the help of her new-found family, Kaya tries to find a way to stop her father, but simply surviving might be the only answer. Finding an inner strength she never thought possible, she vows to do whatever it takes to gain control and save the man she loves–and nobody can stop her. 

Time is ticking...
