Summary Excerpt Comments

Quinn Ross: He's not a nice guy, and he can't seem to get his life together. He only has one good thing left; his little brother Jack. Jack managed to stay decent and uncorrupted, despite the fact that his oldest brother is an ex-convict who only managed to kick his drug addiction because he was serving time in prison. Quinn has never been able to understand why Jack idolizes him; in fact, he secretly wishes he was more like the man Jack is.

  When Quinn plans another robbery, Jack wants in on it, and things go bad. With his little brother bleeding in the backseat, Quinn is desperate. In a last ditch effort to save him, Quinn abducts a nurse from the hospital's parking lot. Tragically, the young girl he grabbed isn't a nurse, and Jack has lost too much blood. Now Quinn must not only deal with the guilt and grief of losing his little brother, he has to decide what to do with the girl he brought home in the trunk of the car.

  Mayree Jacobs is the girl who was kidnapped. She never thought she was pretty. Shy and without friends, always the awkward fat girl who wished she was invisible. Mayree has spent her whole life wishing she was someone else, someone pretty. An ordinary night turns into a night of terror, as she is kidnapped, and watches a young man die before her eyes. At first she is afraid the huge man who abducted her plans to kill her, but then something else happens, a fierce attraction develops between Quinn and Mayree.

  Quinn's life has left him full of guilt, and he has a hard time believing that he is worthy of the affections of someone as kind and pure as Mayree. Also, he finds it hard to trust that she won't try to escape, especially after two failed attempts.

  Mayree had never even been kissed by a man before Quinn, and finds it impossible to believe that she is attractive. In her mind she is only being kept by Quinn because he has no other choice, and she certainly can't believe that he loves her. She is in love with him but feels like she's just not pretty enough for him.

  As the relationship develops, Mayree brings out things in Quinn that he thought he didn't possess. Good things, like honesty, compassion and love. Along the way she learns an important lesson about herself; there is nothing wrong with the person she always has been. She never needed to be anyone else, being herself was good enough.
