When Cora attends her sister’s birthday party, she expects at most a hangover or a walk of shame. She doesn’t anticipate a stolen wallet, leaving her stranded and dependent on Dean - her arch nemesis and ultimate thorn in her side.
And she really doesn’t anticipate waking up in shackles in a madman’s basement.
To make matters worse, Dean shares the space in his own set of chains.
After 15 years of teasing, insults, and practical jokes, the ultimate joke seems to be on them. The two people who always thought they’d end up killing each other must now work together if they want to survive.
But Cora and Dean have no idea their abductor has a plan for them. A plan that will alter the course of their relationship, blur the line between hate and love, and shackle them together with far more than just chains.

"Intense, twisted, and stunning. Beautiful messages of love and hope shine through the darkness in Hartmann’s new novel. This story addresses some difficult issues, like PTSD and sexual violence, in a heartfelt and inspiring way. It was such an emotional rollercoaster for me: I laughed, I cried, and I sat on the edge of my seat, struggling to put the book down. The chemistry between Cora and Dean is hot and explosive and these characters really came to life for me." (L. Starla, author of From Prying Eyes)
