They say our choices in life define us. Unfortunately, sometimes they can kill us.
Jared Calhoun’s just accepted a management position at Citadel Security when he spots Bernadette Guillory, a former runway model. She’s beyond gorgeous, and Jared starts off with his usual plan—screw around and have some fun. Problem is, the supposedly-sophisticated Frenchwoman is also sadly naïve and vulnerable, especially when she’s pressured to take the first “modeling” job she can secure. But Jared’s disgusted when he learns the details, and he’s done with her. He tries to forget about her, but that’s impossible when he discovers she’s disappeared without a trace. He’s almost given up until a surveillance assignment accidentally gives him the answer to Bernie’s disappearance. It’s a horror no one can imagine, and if they ever find her, she’ll be so broken and damaged that she probably won’t survive. And Jared’s not sure even his love for her will be enough to heal her.
Filled with sexual chemistry, intrigue, and a horror unimaginable, One Poor Choice tells the story relevant in today’s world, the story of a woman’s abduction into human sex slavery. Poignant, bittersweet, and heartbreaking, it’s a story of reclaimed love that you’ll never forget.
