Sixteen year old Gemma is kidnapped from Bangkok airport and taken to the Australian Outback. This wild and desolate landscape becomes almost a character in the book, so vividly is it described. Ty, her captor, is no stereotype. He is young, fit and completely gorgeous. This new life in the wilderness has been years in the planning. He loves only her, wants only her. Under the hot glare of the Australian sun, cut off from the world outside, can the force of his love make Gemma love him back? The story takes the form of a letter, written by Gemma to Ty, reflecting on those strange and disturbing months in the outback. Months when the lines between love and obsession, and love and dependency, blur until they don't exist \- almost.

"The temptation of the strong but dangerous boyfriend is significant- and echoed in literature: the classic example being Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. Perhaps we think we can save him, or perhaps we're so infatuated that we turn a blind eye to his problems and abusive behavior. By writing Stolen, I set out to challenge young women to question their own relationships: What are the boundaries between love, control, and obsession? And how do we find the strength and honesty within ourselves to avoid or escape from the wrong kind of situation?"
