They were forbidden. They were never supposed to fall in love. But together, they created a firestorm.
Charlotte Burton knew the instant she was assigned a notorious murder case that her ethics would be tested. What she didn’t know was that seeking the truth would put her whole existence in danger. Marcus King has rebelled against his father, an ambitious lawyer with dark secrets, his entire life, so he never imagined he would be tempted by a woman who shared the same profession.
Until the night his stupid friends accost her in a dark alley, and he simply cannot walk away from her.
They are polar opposites, and they have higher and thicker walls around their hearts than a fortress, but once Marcus sets his mind on conquering her, there is no force powerful enough to keep them apart. They fit like two broken pieces glued together and sizzle like wildfire.
Meanwhile, Charlotte is trying to read the truth between the lies that surround the murder case she is working on. Exposing one lie after another, she realizes that the killer might be someone she had known and trusted all long. She treads closer to the truth, but in the process, she puts a target on her back.
Realizing that her life is in danger, she decides to leave all the conspiracies behind her. Yet, it might be too late to walk away. To protect her, Marcus must break all the rules. Will that be enough to save her?
