Brilliant attorney Cole Cassidy rushes to his mother's side when she is accused of murdering wealthy Texan Sophia Fortune. Cole is convinced his mother is being framed, but the questions remain—why…and by whom? In the scandal-ridden days that follow, Cole gets another shock—the private investigator hired by the Fortune family is Annie Jones, the ex-cop he loved and left when she was accused of a crime she didn't commit.
Annie never forgave Cole for not believing in her innocence and feels edgy and angry working so closely with him, especially since the chemistry they share is stronger than ever. Posing as a couple during a stakeout, a night of rekindled passion gives way to a morning after of serious regrets. But they've got a killer to nail and an innocent woman to free and, perhaps, a chance to forgive…and begin again.
