The only thing harder than being in a marriage is escaping one...
Naomi Holden's husband has hurt her for the last time.
She's not just running from him; she's starting her life over.
Percy Holden won't let her go without a fight,
And Naomi knows he's not afraid to use his fists.
Sheriff Washington is her only friend and ally, but he can't watch her every hour of the day.
She thinks he wants to be more than friends,
But… she's not ready for that yet, even if she does love the sheriff…
She's a broken woman.
What decent man would want her?
A new town is just what she needs. In a place where no one knows her, she finally feels free.
But her freedom won't last long.
The women she works with hate her.
The man she works for has his eye on her.
When Percy shows up to get her back, she refuses to follow his orders.
It's not just her life that needs protection anymore.
She has a secret...
She'll do whatever it takes to protect her unborn child, even if it means destroying Percy.
Can Sheriff Washington really protect her from her husband?
Or will her life end just as it was getting started?
