Criminal defense attorney Hannah Bryans’ goal is simple. Ditch her unscrupulous ways and make a reputable name for herself…but, it seems, she can’t even do that right. Relocating to Iowa, her luck seems to go from laughable to pathetic when Mr. Hunky-By-The-Book-Deputy-Unfriendly hauls her in over a minor traffic violation. It seems she just cannot catch a break, even when the case of a lifetime is dumped in her lap. Acquiring details and familiarizing herself with the arresting officer is first on her agenda. The only problem, the man she needs to befriend is Deputy Mark Bowman—Mr. Hunky-By-The-Book-Deputy-Unfriendly himself. Hannah must somehow convince this man that her client (the kid that he arrested) is innocent. Relying on old tactics, she earns far more than just this deputy’s professional alliance. Discovering evidence, which may expose the truth, threatens to blow the cover off an ongoing undercover FBI probe as well as makes Hannah a target. Someone does not want this case going to trial…but that’s not the only thing in jeopardy, Hannah’s heart is, when mundane small-town living ignites to sizzling with Deputy Mark Bowman as her appointed bodyguard.
