Action/Adventure Romance, Contemporary Romance, Lawyer/FBI Romance
New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando returns to her latest, steamy Conflict of Interest series with this electrifying tale of murder, justice, and intense attraction.
Jaxon Bentley is a hardnosed criminal lawyer whose entire life revolves around his work. He's been asked to represent Scarlett Reyes, a woman accused of murdering her police officer husband in cold blood. All the evidence points to Scarlett being guilty and Jaxon is sure it's an open and shut case.
But when he meets his client, he can't help but feel that she's innocent and that there's more to the story than meets the eye. With a bit of digging, he uncovers a connection to the notorious Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and realizes that Scarlett's case is a complicated and difficult one. It certainly doesn't help that the two share an immediate and passionate attraction. Will Jaxon be able to prove Scarlett's innocence or are the two doomed to fail both in court and as a couple?

4 damaged, delicious and dirty stars for SEDUCING THE DEFENDANT!
When accused cop-killer Scarlett Reyes asks for top criminal defense attorney Jaxon Bentley's help, he's up for the challenge. Unsure about his client's innocence, Jax senses something about Scarlett that simply draws him in, despite his best efforts to stay away. A murder trial can't last forever, and Jax is certain he can prove Scarlett's innocence. They can make it without irreversibly crossing the line…right?
SEDUCING THE DEFENDANT is book 2 in the Conflict of Interest series, and is written by one of my favorite authors! I loved the way Ms. Fernando sewed together characters from this white collar series with the badass bikers and old ladies from her Wind Dragons MC series. I thought that was fun and really enhanced her whole written world. Speaking of fun, how hilarious was Scarlett's porn research scene?! I literally LOL'd at that one! There's nothing better than a well written, clever scene that you could totally picture yourself in! My only beef was the ending, it was completely different from the rest of the book, and I can't tell if it was a cliffhanger or just an abrupt case closed. I guess I'll have to wait until the next book to find out!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; violence/murder.
