Striking raven-haired Deputy Prosecutor Rayna Manchester takes on the most important case of her career when she is assigned to a high-profile hit and run case involving the sister and two-year-old niece of Tucson's popular mayor. But, her well-ordered life is thrown into turmoil when she discovers that the father of the remorseless eighteen-year-old defendant is none other than Tyler Brockwell from her old hometown in South Carolina. Trapped in an ethical crossfire, the protective fortress she has carefully erected around her heart begins to crumble as Rayna struggles to deny her unwilling attraction to a man she never wanted or expected to see again--the man she had spent the past nineteen years trying to forget. For Tyler, their unforeseen reunion ignites a firestorm of emotions he'd thought had died long ago when she'd mysteriously disappeared from his life. Determined to find the answers to the questions that have haunted his dreams, he is torn between supporting his son and the fierce desire to pursue the woman bent on sending his only son to prison.
