Figuring out how to explain why I think you should read this book is more difficult than I expected. In other recommendations, I'll say things like, "Must read or die!" or "Super awesomely good!" but those flippant phrases don't really work for this book. The Missionary is tough to read. The subject matter is raw, real, and disgusting. It is not a fantasy. You would never wish what happens in this book on your worst enemy. Unfortunately, it's something we should read and know about. Human trafficking is a real horror, and this story is based on a true story, or rather a compilation of stories. Wren and Stone find solace and a connection to reality in one another while being immersed in the horror of their circumstances. Without reading the book, it may not seem like it should be a story with romance and sex, but it absolutely finds its place and is understandably appropriate. And it doesn't hurt that these Wilders know how to pen a steamy love scene. Woah. The Missionary is incredible, haunting, lovely, and a must read. [October 2013]

Publisher's Synopsis

Ex-Navy SEAL Stone Pressfield has a bad feeling about the proposed church missions trip to Manila, Philippines. The college-age church group plans to go to Manila and help victims of the sex-trafficking industry. Stone's lingering nightmare memories about the sex-trafficking industry have him warning church leaders that the trip is a bad idea. He knows all too well that it could end in violence, and those involved aren't to be trifled with.

When beautiful Wren Morgan goes missing, he has a sick feeling that he knows exactly who took her, and for what purpose. The problem is, Wren isn't just any other student. She's someone he's close to, someone he cares about. Now she's in the hands of cruel, evil men, and Stone is the only one who can rescue her before the unthinkable happens.

Hi. My name is Angie, and I’m a social-media-and-smut-book-reading addict. Hi… Angie… I’ve been working hard on the magical internet since 2006 when I retired from teaching elementary school to stay at home with my two baby girls. Now, I am a smut peddler.

You can follow my nonsense on Twitter and Facebook. Simply, I’m just a girl, looking at the book world, asking it to love her.
