GAIGE (Captive to the Dark) ARC Request

Elle wasn’t mine. Not the first time I met her, and certainly not when I spotted her in the arms of another man. And not just any man—-a criminal. She wasn’t just any woman either, but a girl gone missing more than ten years earlier, when she was the love of my brother’s life. The eyewitness reports said he’d died trying to save her. That might have been true, but it didn't stop me from blaming the shy, sweet girl who had lived down our street. I’d grown to hate her. My once happy family had been torn apart, and the secrets surrounding her disappearance never let the matter rest. Now fate had brought her back into my life again.

As a Secret Agent, my undercover status led me right to the heart of the most corrupt men on earth. I never thought it would also lead me into the darkest recesses of my mind. That’s where Elle resided. Where she deserved to be, especially with the pampered life she now lived. She might have been dripping in diamonds and dressed to kill, married to a billionaire, but she was about to disappear again. With me. I wanted her to feel our pain. I wanted her to suffer. Worse, I wanted her.

Help bring an end to human trafficking fundraiser.

I've started a fundraiser that I'm hoping you all can help me with. I've been looking into doing this for quite some time and earlier everything clicked. For all of you who have read my Captive to the Dark books, you know they all share one theme in common: human trafficking.

When I first started writing these books, I had no idea the statistics or what human trafficking really entailed. The more I researched, the more I found myself shocked over how this could happen on such a large scale...and yet we don't hear nearly enough on about it.

The statistics are only estimated, but try this number on for size. 100,000 CHILDREN a year. This could be your son or daughter. Your niece of nephew. Even you, because the truth is, there isn't an age limit on human trafficking. When the estimates total in all ages, you're looking at hundreds of thousands of people who are trafficked each year. Now before you find it unbelievable, let's go over the definition of human trafficking.

Human trafficking is the practice of modern-day slavery in which victims are forced or coerced into labor or commercial sexual exploitation. Labor trafficking encompasses a variety of situations including domestic servitude, sweatshops, peddling rings and local farm operations. Sex trafficking involves any form of sexual exploitation through prostitution, pornography, bride trafficking and the commercial abuse of children.

Hundred thousands....

So, I sit here now, typing away, and praying that you'll click the link below and help me make a difference. Every amount helps and it goes to a great cause. Thank you!
