When lawyer Val Covington receives a windfall and leaves her corporate career to practice "do-gooder law," her assistant offers to come with her—if Val will look into the case of Kendra's former lover, who is on Death Row for a crime he didn't commit.
Val agrees, but she can't do it alone. She finds help in Rob Smith, her landlord, who is as capable as he is mysterious.
If justice is an imperfect process, so is falling in love. Val and Rob are drawn together as they fight to save an innocent man's life, but can they overcome their fears to build a lasting future?
"...an emotionally-charged story of honor, courage, and the healing power of love [that] readers will remember." ~Susan Lantz, Romance Reviews Today
"Electrifying! The perfect balance between the heart of the matter and matters of the heart."
