Story Overview:
Dorian North, a soldier in the United States Army, is only hours away from being finished with her final tour in Afghanistan. It's only when she’s ambushed by al Qaeda that Dorian is knocked unconscious and awakens to find herself bound and gagged in a stranger's bed. She desperately tries to escape, but quickly finds herself enamored with her captor's alarming handsomeness.

Rob Hutcherson is a former Sergeant of the United States Marine Corps, who stumbled upon an al Qaeda ambush. He rescues the surviving soldier: the most beautiful woman he's ever laid eyes on. Taking her back to his home he finds his attraction to the fierce young woman to be overwhelming. When she wakes for the first time her goal is clear: escape. 

In fear for her safety he chains her to his bed. He can't bear the thought of losing her, so he plans to show the little spit fire all the reasons she should stay…

My Review:
This novella is very short on words, but not on story. Dorian's helicopter went down on her final mission in Afghanistan and she ended up in the hands of Rob with a head injury. All she knows about him is that he's American, but continues to keep her tied up. He has to keep her tied up because every time he lets her have any give, she attacks. He knows he can keep her safe...from herself and the hostile territory he lives in. She just won't listen to what he's saying.

This is one hot little novella. All Dorian knows is to fight back and not give in, regardless of how she finds her captor more and more attractive with every passing day. All she knows is that she doesn't trust him and has to get away, but then passion takes over...for both of them.

Like I said, this is one hot little book. It had a really interesting and unique twist with just how these two people ended up in this impossible situation. I really enjoyed it. My only complaint is I would have liked to see it longer, just because I liked the two characters and enjoyed the story behind their circumstance.

I really felt for Rob because he's doing the best he can under impossible circumstances. There was a little bit of unbelievability to the story in that he could have explained everything to her at some point while she's gagged and bound and she would have had to hear what he was saying, but then you wouldn't have the set of circumstances that they are in. So...since I enjoyed the story, I can accept it as is and set aside my skepticism.
