Sarah didn't escape her abusive husband with much except her life and her children. Four years should have been enough time to get past all he did to her but, this single mom of five is still running from her past and herself. Her long list of meaningless flings has done nothing to help her or to fill the void she has in her heart. She needs something else, something more, but she doesn't know what. All she knows is her heart isn't ready to let someone in again—it isn't safe for her, and it isn't safe for anyone else.
When Derrick met Sarah, he knew immediately he wanted to capture more than just her body, but her heart and mind as well. He knew this all before he'd ever even heard her name. He needs her to submit to him in every way and for the rest of their lives. But she is holding back and hiding. There is something bigger going on that she isn't ready to tell him, but he must know.
Will Sarah and Derrick capture what they need in each other and find a happily ever after? Or will the past be too much to escape?
