Meet Jack and Rashi in this exciting, new, romantic thriller!
Honour by Anietta Strong
When a man returning home late from a party hears a scream he feels he must investigate. What he discovers is shocking and sets in motion events which soon spiral out of control, eventually leading to the deaths of innocent people as events play out in the seedy, violent world of drugs and people trafficking. That single, selfless act, brings together two people from different cultures and explores arranged marriage through the eyes of a young woman who refuses to conform; an act of disobedience which puts her own life at risk and all those around her. A fast moving story follows this young woman's attempts to escape and her love for an older man who saved her.

Wasn’t the truth his head had been turned by flattery, by a girl who was infatuated by him, had felt safe with him? Wasn’t that the truth, she HAD felt safe, but now that wall of protection she had felt was gone and was now replaced instead by fear. Fear of him and what he was capable of?
