After losing her unborn baby at the hands of her abusive husband, Kendra Salvatori flees from him to Black Mountain, North Carolina. She collapses in the barn of Garth Fisher, who rescues Kendra from near-death and nurses her back to health.
When Kendra is fully recovered, she insists on leaving, aware that her husband, Tony Salvatori, head of a small but very powerful criminal organization, will eventually locate her. Kendra and Garth are by this time in love with one another and Kendra is very fearful of what Tony will do to Garth if he finds her with him.
Garth persuades Kendra to stay with him, convincing her that they are in a safe place that is not easily accessible. Because Kendra is so frightened of what will happen when her husband finds her, Garth and Kendra begin to prepare themselves mentally and physically for the battle they know they will eventually face.
"Compelling characters and a fine balance of romance and danger are this author's trademark. Chasing Demons is Christy Tillery French at her best."
