In April 1941, a passenger ship was attacked and sunk by Nazi Germans. This is the story of seven Canadian women survivors detained in Germany. In April 1941, seven Canadian women became prisoners of war while on a voyage from New York City to Cape Town. Their aging Egyptian liner, the Zamzam, was sunk off the coast of South Africa by the German raider Atlantis. The passengers were transferred to a prison ship and eventually put ashore in Nazi-occupied France. As "non-aliens," all 140 Americans were released after five weeks in captivity, and with the help of theLifephotographer in their midst,the news of their narrow escape became an overnight sensation. The hapless Canadians were taken to Bordeaux and became part of a group of 28 women and children interned in various German detention camps. By a stroke of luck, the Canadians eventually received permission to travel to Berlin where they were left to fend for themselves and adapt to life among "the enemy." As prisoners-at-large, they established contacts with American journalists and diplomats, an elderly Jewish professor, and even with Nazi propagandist P.G. Wodehouse. Finally, in June 1942, an exchange was arranged and the Canadians were able to board a special diplomatic Freedom Train bound for Lisbon, and from there they got back across the Atlantic to New York and new-found freedom.

BESTSELLING BONDAGE AUTHOR'S BEST NOVEL YET! Edward gazed at the three beautiful women in thong bikinis that lay on the deck of the hundred-foot yacht. It was his trophy wife of ten years and his two grown daughters. He was a lucky man to have such a family and also success in business that far exceeded his imagination when he was younger. They were on an extended vacation in the South Pacific, the last one as a family together. His daughters were grown up and living their own lives, so Edward wanted this last family vacation to be memorable. Michael had planned this for a decade, meticulously gathering up the information on Edward until he was ready to execute his revenge. It was a small, quiet island, with gentle breezes and warm waters, far from the shipping lanes, the island too small to be on any chart of the South Pacific. It was there that Michael sprung his trap. Amanda was the oldest, twenty-two years old, and finishing up her graduate degree. It was strange that Amanda was the virgin and her younger sister wasn’t, but that was by design. Amanda enjoyed boys as friends, but not boyfriends. Yet, that didn’t mean that Amanda didn’t get her pleasure from men, it was just that it was often dark and depraved in execution, but the men took what they could from the beautiful woman. Lori was twenty, finishing up college across the country from her older sister. They had nothing in common, and distance was a good thing from her sister. Lori loved men and used them to her advantage, but older men began to fascinate her as they dominated her and taught her the pleasure of giving her body unconditionally. It is on the small island that they all came together, with many others that joined to make the revenge plot successful, but they all wanted to share in the rewards. Michael would get his revenge, but it’s how that the book, Island Captives lays out in graphic detail that shouldn’t be missed. Chains should’ve scared them, not made them excited. Strange men that desired their bodies should’ve scared them, not make them aroused. Dark acts should’ve scared them, not give them orgasms they couldn’t control. Powerone, the Master of BDSM, explores the dark side of not only of men but the women also.
