Publisher Description

A compelling, heartrending tale of a woman in danger and the man who’s desperate to find her, from the internationally bestselling author of TULLY and ROAD TO PARADISE

A heavily pregnant young woman is leaving the shopping mall to head home on a horribly hot day in Texas. Her normal life of shopping, husband, children, with the extra excitement of the imminent baby, stretches before her.

And then she is bundled into a car and kidnapped by a desperate young man.

What does he want? Where are they going?

In scenes that alternate between the desperate husband, pursuing by car, the alarmingly laid-back FBI agent tracing her by helicopter - who may or may not be as good as he thinks at rescuing hostages - and the increasingly threatened wife, Eleven Hours is a tour de force of storytelling power.


Praise for Paullina Simons


‘Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you’ll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next… Read it and weep – literally’ Company

Tatiana and Alexander

'This has everything a romance glutton could wish for: a bold, talented and dashing hero, a heart-stopping love affair … It also has – thank goodness – a welcome sense of humour and discernible characters rather than ciphers.'
Victoria Moore, Daily Mail

A totally gripping story

I loved this book. I think the description above gives too much away. All I will say is that Didi's nightmare begins with a trip to the mall and Paullina Simons' attention to detail means the reader goes with her. I love Didi's dry observations at the Estee Lauder counter. Didi is a feisty, sensible woman with much compassion and a lot to lose. Her husband loves her so much he even recognsies the smell of her handcream on a paper bag. Where is she and who is she with? This is a book about courage and trusting your instincts. Highly recommended.
