A Tricked Life by Mark DaSilva
by Mark DaSilva
When 15-year-old Ana Martins signed up to be a model, she never expected to end up performing as a sex slave. Months earlier, the pretty but awkward American girl living in Brazil had entered a contest that was sponsored by a famous modeling agency searching for their next big star. Ana won, surprisingly, along with a few others, and they were all promised an all-expense paid trip to Miami to begin their new careers.
They stop halfway in the Dominican Republic for some photoshoots. While there, Ana meets Deke, a handsome and daring tourist from Canada and their relationship blossoms when they sneak off together. However, when the agency chaperone is caught in a lie, Ana senses something is wrong.
Ana learns the contest was a scam to lure poor, vulnerable girls to be trafficked into the life of prostitution with no way out. Ana and the girls will be expected to have sex with wealthy men at lavish parties or face the wrath of a deranged rapist who supervises them.
Meanwhile, a tough Dominican cop whose daughter was a sex trafficking victim herself, learns of the sex ring and closes in on the sickening organization – but he may be too late.
With her back against the wall, a desperate Ana will have to survive and escape using her wits, instinct, mixed-martial arts training and love from Deke who is also hell-bent on rescuing her too.
