GUEST POST Book presentation: Hongkong Treasure

“Leyte Province in the Philippines. Her running steps echoed from the walls. Would he catch her? It meant white slavery if he did. Slamming open the kitchen door, she burst out of the hotel despite the typhoon ravaging the eastern coast. The destructive winds and rains were buffered in the alleyway behind the hotel, but she still had to fight for each step away from the man she knew was just behind her.

        Without warning, massive walls of water rushed into the alley from both ends. The sixteen-foot wave scooped her up and battered her against the buildings. When the storm surge receded, she lay bruised and unconscious beneath a mass of water-logged debris.”


What would you do if you woke up in a church-turned-shelter after a devastating typhoon with no idea of who you were or what you were even doing in the Philippines? You have nothing to your name, having to borrow a too-large sundress, and all around you were the injured and lost.

Then a handsome, Chinese actor/philanthropist shows up with badly needed money and supplies and offers to take you with him to Hong Kong to rest and recuperate. Would you go?

Deshi, famous all over Asia, has always given 110% to his career and charity works. He feels a serious relationship would jeopardize that commitment. Rescuing Annie was just one of his numerous charity works and even though he is enjoying showing her his world, when she gains her memory back he will deliver her to her family.

But things do not always go as planned.
