Facing a forced marriage to a wealthy, but violent, man she’d never met, Abigail is facing a tough decision. Should she submit to her Father’s wishes and agree to the arranged marriage, or flee her home town to look for love on her own.

Has she made a wise decision, or will the man she left behind track her down and make her pay for leaving him standing at the altar?
