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.
