At the tender age of twenty–four, Rebecca Cullen found life much too complicated. She worked a full–time job, raised her two teenage brothers, supported her retired grandfather and tended to their Georgia farm. When her troubled brother Clay was arrested on drug charges, Rebecca's life suddenly began to come apart at the seams.
The last thing she needed was the district attorney on the case to be arrogant, rude – and the handsomest man she'd ever seen. Word on the street was that Rouke Kilpatrick was notorious for his hard line against drug dealers. He used whatever means necessary to prosecute them. But Rebecca's brother was innocent. And when the antidrug Rourke began to sympathize with Rebecca and her family, she couldn't help but acknowledge her sizzling attraction to him.
As passions flared between them, innocent Rebecca dared to hope that her narrow world might finally be opening up to include someone like Rourke – sophisticated, sensual and exciting. Every time she was with him, she felt like Cinderella at the ball. All she wanted was to feel his arms wrapped around her, his strong body pressed up against hers. But is the man she's falling in love with just using her to pursue a drug dealer? Now Rebecca will have to decide which is stronger: Rourke's passion for the law – or for her.
