Honey Thomas, a former prostitute and madam, has created a center to help other prostitutes get out of the business. The one glitch in this good deed is that Honey has stolen a large sum of money from some very bad people to finance this endeavor.
After she's kidnapped, Honey's friends -- including the man she loves -- are on a mission to locate her and keep her safe. Meanwhile, the people she stole from are looking to retrieve their money and end her life. (DAFINA, Aug., 251 pp., $24.00)
