Defense attorney Mike Baldwin has never lost a trial. He knows he can trust his razor-sharp instincts, and defendants who are straight up with him walk free. But those instincts always seem to fail him in his personal life. He's been burned before, very badly, yet when, at a party, he meets his younger brother Sean's date--law student Dara Williams--the chemistry is undeniable. Dara, though strong-willed and whip-smart, closely guards a painful past; the only time she was intimate with a man, her trust was betrayed. She doesn't want another man, and that includes Sean. As Dara begins an internship at Mike's firm, the two deny their growing attraction until their smoldering desires just can't be contained. But Mike prides himself on his honor and hates the thought of betraying his brother, and Dara continually wonders if she can truly put her trust in Mike. Can love heal the deepest wounds of the heart?
