I've made some major revisions to Chapter Three. One of my antagonists is now more clearly defined. His motivations and aspirations are on the table, so to speak. He wants my heroine for several reasons and he's willing to destroy her entire family to get her. He's a bad, bad man. ~evil grin~

My heroine is effectively trapped. She's been backed into a corner and cannot see any reasonable way out of the antagonist's effective trap. Poor thing. I almost feel sorry for her. Family ties can be so costly!
