Defend me in court or else, accused racketeer Adam Steele orders.
The last thing defense attorney Bryce Gannon wants to do is get another criminal acquitted. And it does look like it might be the last thing he does. Somebody has already tried to kill him. Now the Feds tell him there’s a traitor in Steele’s organization who may be gunning for him and that Steele has sent him a beautiful spy to make sure Bryce complies.
The Attorney General orders Ciara Alafita to find out if Bryce is corrupt. She hates liars and now she’s become one. But finding the truth about Bryce is as hard as finding the identity of the person trying to kill him. As she challenges the cold attorney to thaw, she finds many things to like about him . . . if she can ignore he’s defending a mobster. But if she can’t convince Bryce to let the Feds protect him or to give up the Steele case, she might never get the chance to admit the truth or her feelings to him.
