Brittany Banks was the wrong woman at the wrong time -- especially for a high-powered attorney on his way to becoming a federal judge and a married man. When Collier Smith leads the dazed and bruised woman he finds at the side of the road to the warmth and safety of his expensive car, he ultimately saves her life. Unexpectedly, he finds himself driven by an insatiable need to protect and possess the vulnerable beauty even as he is drawn deeper into her world -- a tempestuous journey that may cost him his own carefully planned future.
When prominent Tennessee attorney Collier Smith first meets beautiful Brittany Banks, she is wandering in the rain along a remote highway. Though bruised and beaten, she refuses to be treated at a hospital, so Collier has no choice but to take her with him to his cabin retreat until the rain lets up and he can take Brittany home to her humble trailer. With little verbal communication between them, their physical awareness of each other is a constant presence, and it compels Collier to visit Brittany again several days later even though their association could ruin his career. Collier is in the running for a federal judgeship, but a rich, power-hungry local is determined to see him fail. In addition, his self-absorbed girlfriend, Lana, wants to be engaged soon. The sexual attraction between Collier and Brittany is palpable, but it is a tenuous foundation for their difficult relationship, which is limited to a couple of dinners together and his sporadic visits to her trailer. Several plot twists will also give readers pause Brittany's brother, Tommy, is in prison for causing the accident that left Collier's stepbrother a paraplegic, and Brittany's attacker on that rainy night happens to be Collier's nemesis. In the end, it's too much of a stretch to accept these coincidences or to imagine Brittany and Collier's mutual lust giving way to life-altering love. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
