    Summary

    Shivering, Nicky draws in tighter on himself. The room they’re being held in is small, but it’s drafty. The vents keep letting in more bursts of air, and they took Nicky on his evening run. He’s wearing shorts and a T-shirt, and the sweat has long-since become cold and clammy against his skin. He has no real concept of how long they’ve been in here, but he knows it’s been at least three hours. That makes it past midnight. There are goosebumps on his knees.

    To his left, Joe shifts. 

    Nicky starts. 

    “It’s okay,” Joe says, voice hushed. It’s an improvement over the first hour, when he wouldn’t stop calling for help even though there was clearly no one listening. “We’ll be warmer closer together.”

    Romance novel blurb: Kidnapped together, sons of rival business moguls Joe al-Kaysani and Nicky di Genova find common ground...and maybe more.

    Summary

    She is used to the first breath of air hitting her lungs. Her body regenerates; it creates air just to allow her to drown once more, over and over ad infinitum.

     

    Surprise comes when a second breath of air hits her lungs, an equally desperate gasp. It causes her to cough out all of the water that remains in her lungs in between revivals, the liquid hot with bile and her own body’s heat as it scalds the back of her throat on its way out.

     
    The pain doesn’t matter.

     
    The second breath of air, followed quickly by a third and fourth and fifth, brings with it the dizzying realization that she is free.

     
    Quynh opens her eyes to a new world and has no thoughts, the whole of her being full instead with two warring emotions: hope, and a desperate need for vengeance.

     
    OR

     
    Quynh wakes up.
