Product description

Product Description

From one of Australia's hottest new authors comes a story about an international scandal, a billionaire, and a fearless reporter who might just save the day...

Confined in a cold, dull room in the depths of a Shanghai airport, a journalist chasing a career break and a businessman with a shadowy past play a game of truth or dare — deliberately not exchanging names.

They tell each other their most painful secrets and burning desires. One dare leads to a kiss and a wild night of illicit passion, setting off a dangerous sequence of events, bringing exposure and disgrace.

Only the brutal truth can save them. But it will also rip them apart. And it will take more than daring before they can build a new truth together.

This story had everything you want from a prime time saga - passion, secrets, betrayal, action & romance. It was enjoyable from the beginning and it took you on an amazing journey that never stopped! I loved that this is an Aussie author.... Wow!
I loved all the characters especially Bo the driver.
Darcy Campbell is a journalist that is trying get her big break to succeed by her own efforts and come out from behind her father's shadow. When she's chosen to interview the elusive self made billionaire Will Parker she knows she's made - after all this is the break she's been waiting for. But while detained by immigration in Shanghai she meets a fellow detainee that will forever change her life.
Will Parker is a very successful businessman and he thrives on control.
While detained they get to know one another but not their names, one night with a stranger but when once is not enough the rules of the game change and they're both in danger of losing more than their hearts.
They're both torn in their situation and the circumstances that brought them together and are now keeping them apart. You can feel the angst....
This is a full length novel with many twists and turns, and highs and lows... Highly recommended.

I loved this novel. It kept me reading late last night. Darcy and Will are great characters, the tension between them is electric. There's so much I want to say about the plot which kept me guessing right until the end but I'm worried of letting a bunch of spoilers out of the bag. All I can say is that this is one hot romance and I'll definitely be buying Ainslie Paton's other books now.

Loved "Detained". Read it twice (rarely read books more than once). Characters (all of them) had depth; their back stories were intriguing - particularly the man from Tara; twists and turns enticing and Confucian quotes for each chapter thought provoking. What's great about Ainslie Paton's books? Pithy language, short, sharp sentences, strong story lines and thinking that's no where near ordinary. Downloaded this book from Booktopia in 2013.

I loved this story from the beginning to the conclusion. I hated to put it down & thought about the characters & just wanted to return. I had to find out what would happen to Will & Darcy. The story covered mystery, betrayal, revenge, guilt, fear & emotion. Love & trust were words used through out the story & without trust we all know a relationship cannot be sustained. I loved Ainslie, her writing & description of each character. Bo intrigued me, his loyalty to Will & the Parker brothers. It also suggests that extreme wealth does not bring happiness but being free from guilt & fear & having love & being loved is what we all strive for.
I enjoyed Ainslie Paton's writing & I will read her other novels. She doesn't just concentrate on the erotic aspects of the love play but there is a story to be told & it is set in & around Australia & written by an Aussie even better. Well done. Really enjoyed it 5 stars.
