Courage Under Duress (SYTYCW)
© Carey Decevito, 2013
At 24 years old, Erica Pattinson never saw herself as a victim.
Trapped in an abusive marriage where she is beaten, demeaned and suffers every type of torment imaginable, she tries to find an out-an escape.
When Thomas (Tom) Clarke rolls into town and discovers that his best friend's wife is in the hospital after a terrible "fall", he knows that something is amiss.
The two never expected for Erica's husband to refuse her freedom or the fact that hero and survivor would develop more than a simple friendship in this thrilling tale of love and courage.
