On the run from an abusive husband, Amelia Nolan knows how to keep her head down. She is careful of where she goes, what she says, and who she sees. She is especially careful of muscled men that seem to be too good to be true. As long as she continues to remind herself that she’s a married woman — and not to flirt — it shouldn’t be a problem.
