AN UNCONVENTIONAL ROMANCE
At eighteen, Yoko Hirano falls prey to a human trafficking organization and is forced into a lifestyle nightmares are made of. When the young Japanese girl escapes, her only focus is exacting revenge and saving other girls from the same fate by bringing down Michael Chen, the powerful mobster who destroyed her innocence.
BETWEEN TWO MISFITS
Four years later she meets antiques dealer Mark Chandler, the only man who ever treated her with respect. Though she is torn by her unfamiliar feelings for him, Yoko's grand scheme doesn't involve falling in love, and a man like Mark would never want her if he discovered her past. What she doesn't know is that he has his own dark secrets...
BROUGHT TOGETHER BY LOVE AND REVENGE
Mark never thought he could lose his head over a woman, but the haunted eyes of his beautiful new employee fill his soul with desire and tenderness. When he learns about what had happened to her, his vengeance knows no limits. Nor does his resolve to help her heal and discover love.
Praise for THE PLOT
'This is a mix of Memoirs of a Geisha, Leaving Las Vegas, and Pretty Woman - all in one great book!'
'Touching on subjects that most people tend to push out of their thoughts, a revenge plot is born from one girl's life in which she was subject to human trafficking and prostitution. What I thought would be another romance novel, surprised me with twist and turns.'
'A very powerful read. Human trafficking is and will always be a sensitive, controversial issue and Melinda De Ross weaves a story that will both grab and empower you to understand and feel every page of this book.'
'Amazing story from a great writer. Read the book in one day. Could not put it down. It needs a screenplay.'
