However, she becomes his prisoner as he does not trust her, believing she is an agent out to kill him especially since his friend James never mentioned a sibling. Christovao and Emily talk. She explains the attacks on her brother and he confirms he too has been assaulted. He also explains that he thinks the incidents and her vanished brother are linked to a mission that went bad. As they fall in love, Christovao and Emily face danger form an unknown assailant who wants him and James dead and will use her as pawn to accomplish that quest.

Though there has been an abundance of missing relative stories of late but fans of terse romantic suspense tales will appreciate this exciting tale. The story line never slows down from the moment Emily is captured by Christovao until the final confrontation with the villain. SANCTUARY is a terrific thriller that will garner the author plenty of new readers.
