Ava Wolfe is a Sydney Harbour Hospital psychiatrist who has agreed to cover her friend’s practice in the country. As the only psychiatrist in town, Lachlan has no choice but to make an appointment with the feisty doctor he met a month earlier at his brother’s wedding. They shared a steamy encounter in the cloak room at the reception center and he’s nervous about her discovering he’s married.
Ava’s memories of the darkly handsome detective haven’t faded over time. When he approaches her for therapy, she’s forced to set aside her attraction in order to give him the help he so desperately needs. After years of exposure to the worst mankind can offer, Lachlan Coleridge’s spirit has been ravaged. She yearns to help him, but she’s not sure that he’ll let her…
To be a cop is to be tough – physically and mentally. There’s no room for weakness. If it gets out that Lachlan’s seeking help, any chance he has for promotion will be jeopardized. But he’s drowning in a sea of pain; of darkness and confusion and it’s only a matter of time before he topples into the abyss…
Can he trust the only woman who appears to understand him? Is he prepared to put his career on the line in return for saving his soul? And what will happen when she discovers his deceit? Will he open up to Ava and let her help him…before it’s too late?

She calls herself Lady Justice. And once she has chosen a man as her target, she turns herself into a tall blonde or a curvaceous redhead, makes herself as alluring and seductive as possible to them. Once they are in her grasp, they are powerless.
The first victim is wealthy businessman Nigel McEnroy. His company’s human resources department has already paid out settlements to a couple of his young victims—but they don’t know that his crimes go far beyond workplace harassment. Lady Justice knows. And in one shocking night of brutality, she makes him pay a much steeper price.
Now Eve Dallas and her husband, Roarke, are combing through the evidence of McEnroy’s secret life. His compulsive need to record his misdeeds provides them with a wide range of suspects, but the true identity of Lady Justice remains elusive. It’s a challenging case, made even more difficult by McEnroy’s widow, who reacts to the investigation with fury, denial, and threats. Meanwhile, Lady Justice’s criminal crusade is escalating rapidly, and if Eve can’t stop this vigilante, there’s no telling how much blood may be spilled...
