The author Mickey Martin has always had a passion for the written word, and throughout the years she has always harbored the dream of one day writing her own book. In “The Given” (published by Xlibris AU) the author Mickey Martin creates a highly intriguing story that combines intrigue, mystery and romance.

“The Given” takes place in the year 2045 where society has no tolerance for criminals. For the poor with no connections, a simple bullet puts an end to one life of crime. But for the lucky ones, with wealthy families or connections, one is given a second chance and sent to certain establishments around the world, called The Given. Within these facilities, prisoners are educated to a superior level and offered a better way in which to live. Lilliana was one of the lucky ones. After a horrific event that separates her from her family forever, she is placed in the Louisiana's Given facility, run by the ever-charming and handsome brothers, Damon and Cam Night. Lilliana finds herself in a world of new rules, dangerous minds, but thankfully, friends who become her 'sisters of the heart.' As Lilliana and Damon fight their growing, forbidden attraction, Lilliana tries to hold on to the reality that is her new life whilst dealing with sinister and unstable individuals.

Can Damon stay away from Lilliana whilst he manages his family's business? Or, does their time together end before it has a chance to flourish?
