What is the price of freedom?

Liliana Vela hates the term victim. She's not a victim, she's a fighter. Stubborn and strong with a quiet elegance, she's determined to take back her life after escaping the clutches of human traffickers. But she can't stay safely in America--unless the man who aided in her rescue is serious about his unconventional proposal to marry her.

Meric Toledan was just stopping at a service station for a bottle of water. Instead, he becomes the key to Liliana's rescue. If he can keep his secrets hidden, his wealth and position afford him many resources to help her. But the mysterious buyer who funded her capture will not sit idly by while his prize is stolen from him.

PRAISE:
Do not start this book until you have the time to read it in one gulp. This is a really fresh twist on a marriage of convenience with the potential for pages of suspense. The hero and heroine are each hugely compelling, and I just wanted to protect them both. It’s also a sweet story of the healing power of hope. Highly recommend this novel for those who adore romantic suspense with a fresh twist.” --Cara Putman, award-winning author of Flight Risk and Lethal Intent
 
Koslin brings the underworld of human trafficking to life in a gripping yet redemptive plot.” –Booklist

AUTHOR INTERVIEW:
- Why did you choose to write in your particular sub-genre?
I’m a 4th degree black belt, so suspense and action come naturally.

- How do you write? Any backstory to your choice?
I used to write everything longhand, but I’ve gotten used to writing on a computer now.

- What cultural value do you see in storytelling?
For this book in particular, it’s not only a way to tell a beautiful story but also a way to shed light on a horrible practice that doesn’t get enough attention.

- What do you think most characterizes your writing?
People say my style is unique and that my stories are intense. I’m always happy to hear both of those things—that’s what I strive for.

- How important are names to you in your books? How do you choose names?
I love names. The names in my books either mean something or it’s simply a name a really love. Liliana’s name is something you would realistically hear in Mexico (where she’s from), and it’s lovely, like her. Meric’s mother named him after the country she adopted and loved. She took “America” and removed the “a” on each end.

- Do you now or have you ever considered writing under a pen name? Why or why not?
I do write under a pen name. My real last name is WAY too difficult. Lol.

- Do you have any writing pet peeves?
Too many “ing” phrases, especially when they are used incorrectly.

- What projects are you working on at the present?
It’s not under contract, but I’m writing a book titled The Beast, like from Beauty and the Beast. It’s about a race to find a lost library.
