Abusers never stop.
If anyone's familiar with this it's Tyler "Tank" Wilde. Tank moves to Black Widow, Texas, to join the Blue Guardians, a group that helps abused women and children. He's intent on starting his life over, but a small piece of his past collides with his present when he runs into the local waitress, Annie Carter.
Annie's the girl of his boyhood dreams, and Tank can't wait to get reacquainted with her. Only problem is, Annie's engaged. But what has Tank more troubled than the diamond on her finger is the bruise that graces her arm.
Tank is determined to offer Annie a safe haven, but she refuses. The last thing she wants to do is leave one man only to run into the arms of another. But at Tank's persistence, she knows she has two choices: allow him to protect her or die at the hands of her fiancé.
Was their past a prelude to their future? If there's anyone in the world Annie would pick to go into hiding with, it's the boy who once held her heart, but how can they hide from the monster who holds the town's law in his hands?
