Could You Survive the Terrifying Fear and Despair of Betrayal?
The reality of human trafficking is horrifying, even in fiction
I’ve received a lot of feedback about the World Without Love series.
From comments about the desperation, heartache, and spirit-breaking predicament the heroine (Jewel) finds herself caught up in, to the actions of a few despicable characters, to the tiny slivers of hope that carried readers through the occasionally difficult and nefarious story, each message brought an emotional roller-coaster to the forefront.
For those of you who haven’t read the series yet, allow me to share a look inside the three books that tell the tale of an innocent woman captured in the tangled net of an unfair and unjust world - and those who demand to be in control, regardless of the consequences.
Enter a world of danger and intrigue, a place where trust, honor, and dignity are cloaked in a veil of lies and deceit . . . Welcome to a World Without Love
In Betrayed, the story of Jewel’s reluctant surrender begins . . .
Jewel has everything going for her—a handsome husband, a promising future, and lots of time to explore an island paradise she now calls home. But when a group of strangers accompanies her husband home for a friendly game of poker, her life quickly becomes a hellish nightmare of deceit and betrayal.
Now her very survival depends on entering a world where sex, domination, and money are inseparable - where women must obey every master, and where every desire has its price.
In Reunion, Jewel’s story continues as she finds herself stranded in a far-flung corner of the world. Struggling to elude her captors and a network of bounty hunters, she meets her would-be savior, a man who promises to provide protection and comfort.
Believing her nightmare has finally come to an end, Jewel begins making plans to return home, where she can start her life over again. But greed raises its ugly head, and the terrifying future she thought she’d evaded becomes a reality.
Deceived by the only person she believed she could trust, Jewel is left defenseless against the sadistic abusers who take pleasure in teaching her their own form of discipline.
With the dream of rescue even further from her reach, she begins planning her revenge on the men who have stolen her life—and her future.
In the final chapter of the series, Jewel is rescued from Bangkok’s evil flesh markets by a covert government agency.
Haunted by her last memories of Annie, Jewel vows to do whatever it takes to find her friend—hopefully in time to save her from her captor’s sadistic and murderous intentions.
In her new position as an embassy hostess, Jewel forms alliances with political attaches and power brokers, hoping one of them can help her in her quest.
But again, the hand of fate touches Jewel’s heart, forcing her to choose between the new man in her life and the one who helped her escape a dismal world of enslavement and cruel domination.
Many thanks for your continuing interest in my work. I hope you decide to follow Jewel’s journey, and venture into a World Without Love.
Until next time,
