"This isn’t a movie…it’s all too real and you could get hurt…or worse. Don’t be an idiot, Shun…quit while you still can."But Shun refuses to listen to Jack's warning and, unwilling to allow his friend to face danger alone, once again Jack Knight finds himself thrust into the middle of a country full of turmoil where the stakes are high and…
Not so for Allison Tate. Instead of a dream, her life was a nightmare.
Born late in life to wealthy, elitist parents, Allison was paraded around like a dressed-up China doll, but never loved for herself.
The only affection she received during her formative years was from her nanny, Hannah, who unfortunately died while Allison was still in her teens, leaving her alone and at the mercy of her ruthless parents.
Allison's parents had her whole life arranged for her, including a loveless marriage, but Allison had other ideas.
Determined to avoid being tied to a man she didn't love, she devotes all of her time and energy to obtaining a teaching degree which would allow her to strike out on her own, no longer under her parents' thumb, but somewhere along the way she met a sweet lady who restored her faith in God and introduced her to the love of her life.
Allison's parents were furious and would have found a way to financially hurt or even ruin the man she loved as well as Allison's best friend, except for the intervention of a kind, elderly couple.
With her parents on a leash, Allison relaxed and began enjoying life for the first time, but there was another menace on her horizon, which threatened her very existence, and the man her parents had chosen to be her husband was the only one in a position to save her.
