While writing alone on one of the many northern coastal beaches of California, Tess Simne is pursued by a much younger suitor, Nolan Reynolds. As a renowned romance novelist, she wondered what could be more perfect and romantic than to meet and fall in love with the man of her dreams, during an amazing sunset out at Jenner. Nothing, unless she's already sexually held captive by a very sinister, possessive, and jealous man, who will stop at nothing to seek revenge once he senses that his territory is being invaded. It happened once before . Could it happen again? Tess becomes a hostage in her own villa overlooking the Napa Valley and under the spell of her coveter, Grant Sterling. Sadly, she must deny her feelings for Nolan and, in turn, convince her enamored suitor to keep his distance from her, physically and emotionally-for his own safety. But it may already be too late! As she desperately tries to push her new love to stay away, her pleas fall on deaf ears and are no match against Nolan's strong will to capture Tess' heart.
