New York Times best-selling author Chantal Fernando returns to her latest, steamy Conflict of Interest series with this electrifying tale of murder, justice, and intense attraction.
Jaxon Bentley is a hardnosed criminal lawyer whose entire life revolves around his work. He's been asked to represent Scarlett Reyes, a woman accused of murdering her police officer husband in cold blood. All the evidence points to Scarlett being guilty and Jaxon is sure it's an open and shut case.
But when he meets his client, he can't help but feel that she's innocent and that there's more to the story than meets the eye. With a bit of digging, he uncovers a connection to the notorious Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and realizes that Scarlett's case is a complicated and difficult one. It certainly doesn't help that the two share an immediate and passionate attraction. Will Jaxon be able to prove Scarlett's innocence, or are the two doomed to fail both in court and as a couple?
