When Judge Key meets Huck, instant sparks fly between them which could threaten the ordered life Jillian craves both in and out of the courtroom.

Jillian –I caught the brass ring when the President of the United States gave me my dream job as a Federal Court judge. The truth is, I’ve spent a lifetime trying to outrun the chaos of my past. If I let it back in, even for a moment, the walls I’ve carefully built could come crashing down. Now, someone wants me dead and I have no choice but to rely on U.S. Marshal Ray Huckman to keep me safe. But, Huck stirs a dangerous passion inside of me that could consume us both if we give into it. Huck is nothing but chaos wrapped in a sexy package and I don’t know if I can resist.
Huck – As a U.S. Marshal, I’ve dedicated my life to bringing down some of the most dangerous fugitives in the country. I can’t deny I love the rush of it, the danger. The last thing I wanted was to cool my heels playing bodyguard for Judge Jillian Key. Then I met her. She’s smart, stunning, and has a knockout body beneath that black robe. I want her more than I should admit and from the second I touched her, I knew she felt the same. Now Jillian’s been marked for death by a cunning killer. It’ll take every instinct I have to keep her safe.
