Overview

A stolen boy

A haunted soldier

A cornered con woman…

Rafe Angelito thought he was done with the demons from his past—until his son is kidnapped. Blackmailed into abducting an American heiress, the French Foreign Legionnaire soon finds himself trapped in paradise with a woman who's nothing he expects…and everything he desires. But when he uncovers her own dark secret, Rafe realizes he's made a critical mistake—one that could cost him everything.

Playing body double for a spoiled socialite was supposed to be Holly Ryan's ticket to freedom. But when she's snatched off her yacht by a tall, dark and dangerous stranger, the not-quite-reformed con artist will make a desperate play to turn her captor from enemy to ally, by any means necessary.

Yet as scorching days melt into sultry nights, Holly is drawn to the mysterious capitaine, with his unexpected sense of honor and his searing touch. When they're double-crossed, they'll have to risk trusting each other in ways they never imagined…because in this deadly game of deception, it's their lives—and hearts—on the line.

Kelly’s debut novel unites an unwilling kidnapper and his unlikely victim in an unusual romance. Holly Ryan is enjoying being paid to impersonate Laura Hyland, a wealthy U.S. senator’s daughter, while sailing near the coast of Indonesia. Then she is abducted by someone who believes she is Laura. French Foreign Legion officer Rafael Angelito was forced to kidnap Laura in order to obtain the ransom money he needs to rescue his stolen son. As Rafe and Holly end up on a secluded tropical island meant for honeymooners, Holly can’t help her attraction to her handsome captor despite her mistrust of him. When Rafe learns Holly’s identity and reveals some hidden truths about himself, Holly starts to realize that under the battle-hardened exterior lies a man whom she has come to care about. Nonstop action and romantic tension sizzle, and readers will eagerly follow Rafe and Holly’s quest to discover whether they can elude their pursuers and build a future together. (June)

French Legionnaire Rafe Angelito would do anything to get his young son back from the villains who took him—even kidnap Laura Hyland, the spoiled daughter of a powerful American senator. But when he learns to his horror that he's kidnapped instead Laura's double, Holly Ryan—and the real Laura has been "rescued"—the situation devolves into an even deadlier game of deception and betrayal as Rafe and Holly must learn to trust each other if their plans have any hope of succeeding. On a remote tropical island, a desperate father and a streetwise heroine who's living a lie struggle to save themselves and a young boy—and stay alive in the process. VERDICT A taut romantic thriller readers won't want to put down. Debut author Kelly lives on New Zealand's North Island.
