In celebration of her one year wedding anniversary and recent political changes that legalize her marriage, author Lauren E. Harvey (L. E. Harvey) and Vanilla Heart Publishing are excited to announce the re-releases of her books and a brand new series of Loving Her singles with her (legal) married name, Lauren Shiro.
A gripping suspense novel, it is the story of Lareina Oliveira: a Ph. D. student at UCLA, studying algebra. She has a seemingly ordinary life. Lareina works as a teacher in addition to her Ph. D. studies. She has wonderfully close relationships with her family and her roommate, Sandy. Her life is a rather quiet one, but Lareina is very happy with things as they are.
School life seems normal, though one of her classmates, Tony Covelli, is captivated by Lareina and pursues her throughout the semester. Repeatedly, Lareina turns Tony down and focuses more on her private life.
Refusing to take no for an answer, Tony eventually kidnaps her and keeps her as his prisoner in a cabin well hidden in the woods.
Lareina is held hostage for over two weeks. The only thing keeping her alive is her determination and resourcefulness. Lareina uses her wits and knowledge of algebra to send Sandy and her family text messages in order to help them to find her. Sandy; Lareina's family; her professor from UCLA, and a lonely but dedicated Missing Persons policeman named Marcus Raymer work night and day to try to save Lareina. She is held hostage, and raped and tortured for days on end. Will they be able to get to her before it’s too late?
