After two years of brutal captivity, Portia Lamont has escaped and returned to her family’s Vermont horse farm—only to find her parents gone to New York to try an experimental treatment for her mother’s cancer, and her childhood friend Boone Hawke running the farm.
Like the rest of her family, Boone has never given up hope that Portia would return. But when she turns up battered, skinny as a twelve-year-old boy, afraid of everything and unable to talk about what happened, he does the only thing he can—try to help her heal. He summons the town doctor and Portia’s parents, and sets out to put this beautiful, broken woman back together again.
Through her family's love and Boone's gentle affection, Portia gradually comes back to herself, and starts to fall for her old friend in a whole new way. But one thing threatens her fragile hope for recovery: The man who took her promised that if she ever escaped, he'd kill her. Slowly. And someone is definitely watching her...waiting to make his next deadly move.

Couldn't put it down
Started out very suspenseful and kept my interest the whole time. Looking forward to the next one in the series.
LOVED this book! I started it late this afternoon (Saturday) and just finished it (12:51 am Sunday). I absolutely could not put it down. Read while I was cooking dinner, while I was eating dinner and watching the Olympics. Can’t wait to get and read the remaining books in this series. On a side note....I have read the first 4 LeGarde books. Am about to start Tremolo. Excellent books! Thanks!
