Beckie Sverdupe is ready for April vacation at her church's Spring Week Camp until Ian Jamse, the only man who had ever depended on her, asks for her help. She still had nightmares about digging out of the sand, but she'd succeeded.Should she listen to his plea? Of course. Or was it more of a pitch than plea? He had a job, so yes, probably it was. Could she help him? Maybe. Would she?Yes!Beckie's answer launches her on a three-month journey to save children she'd never met. Along the way, she poses as an exotic dancer in London, a cowgirl in Arizona and an ingénue in Thailand. Each stop brings her closer to her family, her friends and to Ian Jamse, the man who'd believed in her. Each stop brings her closer also to a personal meeting with the man who could end it all, with her death.A romantic thriller set in an approximation to the real world, Allure is the lead book in the Beckie and Ian series. While it stands alone, readers may find the character introductions in Sandfall helpful.Allure is recommended for readers 16 and over for language and mature situations. Real language is used, as are fictional depictions of child abuse.Bonus: An excerpt from Freedom Does Matter, the second book in the Beckie and Ian series, is included.Publishing history: Allure was originally titled Mercenaries: A Love Story and included what is now Sandfall. This edition has a new cover, and is retitled and heavily edited from that version.
