A woman who dares… Hot, smart, sexy forensic investigator Kate Quinn is finished with straitlaced–she's determined to ditch her longtime nickname "Sister Kate." And she's getting tall, gorgeous, tough-as-nails deputy district attorney Jericho St. James to do it. But when a man she believes to be innocent is charged with murder, Kate's world, not to mention her enticement of Jericho, soon gets complicated. And the man who defends her… Jericho has been holding back ever since he met Kate–never wanting to cross the line with a colleague. Now, however, Kate's sensual ways and incredible new look have poked serious holes in his cool air of sleek sophistication. She happily obliges when he sinks to his knees in surrender and begs her to be his. Yet as the murder case reaches a fevered pitch, it's Kate and Jericho who've put everything on the line…. For each other…For now…Forever.
