I'm calling this romance. I uses it sort of is. It's another story that will make you uncomfortable. I'm reading a lot of these lately. It's certainly not as good Drowning Instinct which has similar topics if forbidden love, or even as difficult to read as Captive in the Dark. I think the real issue here is that because you're reading this fri, the comfort of your home, you want the characters to get together at the end for some reason. But you shouldn't, because rape is rape and kidnapping is kidnapping. It's intriguing to say the least, read it and decide for yourself.
