Brianna has lived twenty-four years but feels like she has never been in control. A dismal childhood with no father and an alcoholic mother left her to fend for herself. Verbally abrasive and with loose sexual mores, she finds herself living with Wade who may possibly be involved with the mob. When she finds something while innocently looking at his computer Wade turns violent--and nearly kills her. Brianna manages to escape Cleveland only to find herself alone on a rural Pennsylvania road with Wade hot on her trail. A passing motorcyclist picks her up and reluctantly agrees to help her, unaware of her sordid past and the man intent on finding her.

While the disparate couple hide out in the secluded cabin, Brianna struggles with trusting another man who is vastly different from any she has known, but who could also offer her a life she never thought possible. Fighting her personal demons she must balance what it may take to help or hinder a burgeoning relationship with her rescuer.

As Wade and his mobster cohorts creep closer, a life or death showdown in the forest will determine Brianna's future and demand she ultimately chooses what is most important to her. The Strong One is a story about a lost young woman finding her inner strength--and her previously untapped talents of self-defense.

David Wittlinger's debut novel is a unique blend of thriller and erotica. Readers are cautioned that this book contains explicit language and sexual content.
