Genre: Women’s Fiction, Romance
Does a girl ever really learn from her mistakes?
Detective Sergeant Megan Taylor thinks so. She once lost her heart to a man who was too charming and she isn’t about to make the same mistake again – especially not with sexy defence lawyer, Scott Armstrong. Aside from being far too sure of himself for his own good, Scott’s major flaw is he defends the very people she works so hard to imprison.
But when Scott wants something he goes for it. And he wants Megan. One day she’ll see him not as a lawyer, but as a man … and that’s when she’ll fall for him.
Yet just as Scott seems to be making inroads, a case presents itself that’s far too close to home, throwing his life into chaos.
As Megan helps him pick up the pieces, can he persuade her he isn’t the careless charmer she thinks he is? Isn’t a man innocent until proven guilty?
With dashes of wit, introspection and crime, this is a charming (yes, pun intended) tale of finding love in the most unlikely of places.
DS Megan Taylor may be good at her job as a policewoman but, emotionally, she’s as insecure as they get. So when confident and suave defence barrister Scott Armstrong turns on the charm offensive, she tries to run a mile. Unsuccessfully.
The constant battling between the two leads, each representing different aspects of the law, makes for a rollercoaster read, and romantic fiction doesn’t get more relentless (in a good, page-turning way) than this. Read it.
