Product Description

Standalone Novel

Royce Pembroke, an ex-soldier who joined a secret anti-human trafficking task force based out of Norfolk, Virginia, has been assigned to monitor Makeena Ellison – a young, vulnerable, twenty-one-year-old woman who he just purchased in an undercover operation. Bringing her traffickers to justice should be his ultimate concern, but he finds himself focusing more on protecting Makeena. He’s aware of her abandonment issues and the betrayal she experienced from her foster mother, and he struggles not to develop feelings for this heartbroken woman.

Makeena is in love with LOVE, but has no idea what love is. She’s young and has been thoroughly misguided by her foster mother, the woman who was supposed to love and protect her. She has a strong desire to find out what love is and has her sights set on her protector – Royce – for that purpose. But she’s about to learn the hard way that true love cannot be forced, no matter how desperately you want it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick, Easy Read! 15 October 2016
By Books - are what I love! - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
OK, so I didn't hate this book, but I didn't love it either... Although, I really, really wanted to love it! The heroine was a very silly, young woman who was raised to basically be a wife and mother...... and her first interaction with a man did not go very well due to this upbringing.

This story also had the premise of a human trafficking ring and IMHO it didn't really flow from that into a romance story that well. It almost felt "wrong" for the hero and heroine to fall for each other as he was supposed to be her protector and she was an immature chick with delusions of her role and responsibilities in a relationship.

But, the supporting cast was good and it was a quick, easy read. I liked it enough to give the author another try. Maybe a different storyline would work better for me.

Ms Martin writes an rollercoaster novel about abuse , murder , PTSD, and human trafficking . Royce and Makeena fall in love under very different circumstances as he rescued her evil foster mother. We get see what happens when veterans come back from war with emotional scars and also have people can be so insensitive to harm humans for a dollar. Buy the novel it will have you turning the pages until the end.💯📚😪
4.0 out of 5 stars A Tough Subject.. Well Done. 25 September 2016

The crux of this novel dealt with a tough subject in human trafficking. I applaud this author for not glamorizing the storyline. She also included PTSD, which many veterans suffer from. This too was handled well. The hero in the story was tasked with catching the ring behind the trafficking scheme. The heroines foster mother was the main connection. The heroine had essentially been brainwashed by her Mama. The hero had to undo years of manipulation and mind games. In the end, the two had a HEA.
5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic Great Read!!!!!!!!!!!!! 9 October 2016

This was a great read! It was a little different from the love stories I usually read but, I am glad I gave this a chance. I love the characters Royce and Makeena. I was a little taken aback at how rough Royce was with Makeena in his attempts to deny his growing feelings for her. I loved how his character grows and evolves during the story. He was always protective from the beginning but, later we see how his protection turns into passion because of the love he has for her. I love how Tina Martin addressed the ongoing issue we have in America when it comes to our military soldiers and their struggle with PTSD. I also loved how she addressed the issue of human trafficking too. This happens more often than we think It is a serious issue that to this day, some people shy away from. Great job Ms. Martin!

I have read several of Ms Martin's books and was not disappointed with this one. I loved how Royce and Makeena fell in love. More importantly, I loved the storyline and the dangerous twists and turns in the story. A great read (I readily in one night) and an awesome story.
