Leanna Dixon has had enough. She no longer wants to be a punching bag for her husband, Mark. Without a word, she packs her bag and flees from her hell.
Arriving in her new home, things begin to go wrong from the start. Through all the bad she meets James, an Austin Police Officer, who helps her pick up the pieces of her shattered life.
Mark Dixon rules his women with an iron fist. When he arrives home and finds his wife has left him, his anger begins to build to dangerous levels. He knows he needs to find her and teach her a lesson, just as his father had done to his mother.
Will Leanna survive or will she become another statistic?
Leanna looks up at James as one last tear escapes from the corner of her eye. He brings his hand to her face and thumbs the tear away before bringing his lips down to hers. His lips kiss hers gently before his tongue seeks entrance. Her lips part and a gentle moan escapes her throat. His kiss is tender and intoxicating. Through the simple act alone, she feels safe and secure—wanted.
His hands travel up the side of her face. His fingers entwine into her long, brown hair. He gently pulls her hair, tilting her head back. He breaks the kiss and gazes into her eyes. His eyes burn with passion, passion he hasn’t felt in his entire life. Leanna’s stomach clinches with excitement. Without a word, he begins to trail kisses from her ear to her neck. Leanna, uncontrollably, arches her back as James makes his way to her collar bone.
Without warning, he lifts her into his arms, her legs wrapping around his waist as he begins to ascend the staircase toward his bedroom. With one, swift kick, the bedroom door squeaks on its hinges before clicking shut. The floorboards creak and crack as he makes his way to the bed where he gently lays Leanna down.
