While the beginning of this story is a bit slow and confusing, it’s also intriguing in a way that keeps readers interested until it picks up speed. There are many different facets to the plot such as the issues of race, politics and abandonment that make the relationships more substantial. The characters have a sweet chemistry with doses of humor and drama, and the plot develops into more than just the hero rescuing the heroine.

Ashley Montgomery is tired of her wealthy politician family controlling her life, so she decides to take matters into her own hands. She travels to Africa to volunteer in a refugee camp, but her good intentions take a dangerous turn when she’s kidnapped by Somali pirates. Brody Baxter, a bodyguard for the Montgomerys years ago, comes to Ashley’s rescue and gives her a safe place to hide from the prying eyes of the press and her parents. While recuperating in Brody’s hometown, as she and Brody come to realize they love each other, Ashley discovers she’s not the only one who needs to heal. (BANTAM, Jul., 384 pp., $7.99)
