There’s a serial killer in Wilmington and he calls himself The Voyeur. He forces women to do unspeakable, deviant acts that must be videotaped so he can watch. His lewd demands are the ransom he requires for the safe return of their kidnapped children. When The Voyeur takes a child, he leaves a list of things the mother must do to have her child safely returned. If the instructions are not followed, the child will die—he has proven that. Laura, a gently-bred southern socialite, must approach a stranger in a bar, lead him to a motel room and have sex with him knowing there’s a camera concealed in the television recording everything.
Paige, a devout Christian, must service a man she’s just met while a webcam focuses on them. The man she arranges to meet is her pastor. Meggie, a dedicated operating room nurse, has to be caught flagrante delicto by her extremely jealous ex-husband. The man she has to be discovered with is his best friend and tennis partner, the new resident surgeon at her hospital.
The women The Voyeur targets are single mothers devoted to their children, with nowhere to turn when they discover that their child is missing and that he has them. Three single men, in either the right place or the wrong place, are alerted to their plight and come to their rescue. By doing so, their lives are altered forever. Kel, Caison and Rand, strong men of good character, get much more than they bargained for when they step in to help three desperate women. This is a novel focusing on the deviant mind of a sexual predator as well as on the romance of three couples dealing with the most unusual circumstances of their meeting. The man who comes to Laura’s rescue is Kel Vain, a tormented detective who is trying frantically to catch the kidnapper terrorizing his community. He is obsessed with capturing the vile monster who holds the power of love in his hands. For it is well known that this evil man won’t hesitate to kill the child of a woman who won’t do his bidding. And Detective Vain knows he can’t bear the sight of another young body being pulled from the river.
Detective Kel Vain comes to Laura Wyndham’s rescue when her daughter is snatched. He becomes the stranger this single mom must proposition and be videotaped with. It is a sexual episode unlike anything either could ever have imagined. As Kel spends his days trying to capture the demented killer, his nights are tortured by thoughts of the proper society woman that he made the most incredible love to. This was a challenging book to write. I wanted to convey the fear these women felt in an almost hopeless situation, their obvious hesitation to do the kidnapper’s bidding, yet their steely determination to do whatever it took to get their children back. The men, while not quite so traumatized, have their own emotions to deal with as they first take charge and fulfill the ransom demands, then strive to protect the women they are coming to think of as theirs.
