One in a Millionby Barbara Keaton
When high-powered attorney Deena Walls walked into the police station searching for her client, the last thing she expected was to feel the immediate heat brought on by Detective Charles Henry Harris. As they both work on a case that would not only test Deena's will and mettle, but also show her how deep her attraction is to the handsome detective, they would have never guessed that theirs would be a relationship of searing passion and emotional healing.

This was a good read. I just thought it was kind of unbelievable. The families were just too perfect for me. Deena immediate family members are all lawyers including her parents, her sister and boyfriend are bounty hunters. Deena's neice goes to a magnet school for gifted kids. Four of Charles immediate family members are cops, his father a retired Judge and his sister-in-law is a doctor....everyone is a goody two shoes. Other than that it was an enjoyable read.
Deena is high profile/celebrities of a lawyer in a family practice that comes across as the women that you don't want to mess with. Deena was married once but he turned out to be the last man she vowed to take on serious in her life time. Deena is a great person but she does have her own issues that follow her up until the end of the book. Charles is a great detective that has been married once and out of that marriage came a child/son that left him a single father. Between beening a father/detective is all he looks forward to in his life time. Until one day he is sitting at his desk and Deena comes in for a fight to get her client out of jail. The sight of this beautiful young woman turns his world upside down and inside out. Now Charles has to figure out how he's going to get her to want him as much as he wants her, he already know that she's out of his league but that gives him more to fight with. The book is a great read if you are looking for romance and a little police action in the mix. There's characters that is very well developed and some that's not that really throws the book. Its needs more substance of background work on the characters, if this was done it would flow so freely. Although I'm complaining about this one book, the author is a great writer and has other titles out there for your enjoyment so look them up.
