Defense attorney Erin Rafferty has to be tougher than her male colleagues to prove herself in the courtroom. A pit bull in a teacup-poodle package, her hard-earned hard-ass persona isn't easily undone. But one man has proved himself capable.
Rugged, tattooed Detective Cruz is honest, solid—and his testimony on a past case devastated Erin's career. When a blind date has their paths crossing again, she has no intention of consorting with the enemy, even if her loss wasn't entirely his fault. Then she gets close enough to him to feel the sparks, and even Erin can't bring herself to object.
Undercover cop Daniel Cruz never dreamed he'd see that sexy lawyer ever again. She's just the shot of adrenaline he needs after being lost and alone too long in a job that's beginning to get the best of him. However, getting the cautious Erin to trust in something more than a series of hot trysts isn't easy. And with a new case threatening to put them right back where they started, this time their future together could be on trial, too.
