Sea Gypsy
by Savannah Black

Fleeing from an abusive boyfriend, Stephanie ends up in the sleepy coastal town of Sargent Texas. With nothing more than the few clothes she was able to get out with, she finds a job at a greasy spoon restaurant, a place to live and new friends. Captain Jack owner operator of the Sea Gypsy tug boat, finds her irresistible but skittish. Can he break through the wall she has built around her?

Her life falls into a routine and she finds happiness. All is well until the nightmare from her past shows up, ready to drag her back to Dallas whether she wants to go or not! The note in her car said it all:
I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE AND WHERE YOU WORK. YOU CAN NOT HIDE. YOU ARE MINE AND ALWAYS WILL BE. I WILL SEE YOU DEAD BEFORE I LET YOU BE WITH SOME CRIPPLED UP OLD MAN. I KNOW HE SPENT THE NIGHT WITH YOU. I AM WATCHING.

However, he finds not the timid rabbit she was, but a strong self-sufficient woman. Deciding not to be the victim any more she takes classes in martial arts and applies for a permit to carry gun.

Simon Banks is a depressed and unstable man with a plan. He wants to wipe out his past by buying a brighter future, but Jack Redman stands in his way.

Will Jack ever escape the legacy of lies and deceit left by his ex-wife? Can Jack and Anna hold it all together, or will tragic repercussions from Jack's past blow them apart forever?

Jaffareadstoo (top 500 Amazon reviewer): 'There is never a lull in the narrative, the plot is allowed to evolve beautifully, and there some really lovely, light moments which offset the darker elements of the story. All too often sequels can become a bit of damp squib with less on offer than what has gone before, but rest assured that this is not the case with Dark Water.'
