As she searches for a way to liberate her team, she finds herself drawn to a handsome stranger whom she meets nightly at the river—unaware he is the same man holding her colleagues hostage. As their feelings for each other grow, only time will tell whether the secrets they keep from each other will tear their love apart, or whether their all-consuming passion will bring them back into each other’s arms.
