COUNSEL

Prosecutor Adam Thorne's take-no-prisoner courtroom persona has earned him a formidable reputation among peers and opponents alike. His outward assurance, perceived by many as arrogance, however, masks a painful history.  One, he's spent decades trying to overcome. Now, he prides himself on being in control of every aspect of his life.

 

Adam’s ordered world, however, is turned upside down when, appointed to a high-profile case, he finds himself attracted to a key witness. The beautiful and enigmatic Angelique Bain is is not only a pivotal in the case; she also happens to be the paid escort of a defendant, a prominent state senator.

 

Despite his best efforts, Adam can’t stop thinking about Angelique, not even in his sleep where she stars in his dreams in ever more erotic ways.

ANGEL

The death of her beloved father devastates young Angelique Bain, but an unexpected opportunity offers new hope. 

 

Years later, when, as an aspiring ballerina, she makes her debut in Europe, she experiences the heady excitement of first love. Lauded by the ballet world, and with her career poised to soar, Angelique’s life is, again, thrown into turmoil by a man obsessed with her.

His unwelcome attention causes a tragedy that leads to her working as an escort and, unwittingly, becoming involved in a criminal case that brings her to the attention of prosecutor, Adam Thorne.

He despises her, and she thinks he’s insufferable, but, no matter how hard she tries to fight against it, Angelique can’t deny Adam's devastating attraction or the emotions he stirs in her.

DESTINY

Adam Thorne's loathing of Angelique is apparent, so no one is more astounded than she when, after humiliating her on the witness stand, Adam expresses an interest in her.

In a startling about-face, the prosecutor with the reputation for being merciless and arrogant displays a new and surprising vulnerability in his attempts to win Angelique’s affection. 

She's wary, afraid to trust his motives or her own judgment, but she hasn’t accounted for Adam’s determination to eliminate every obstacle in his path.

BONUS CHAPTERS

Sometimes characters don't cooperate. They object to my portrayal of them, refuse to be relegated to the background and, at times, insist on having their points of view known  Some become so insistent that in order to move on, I succumb and write as they compel me to. 

The characters in this series of books were no different.

These chapters are the results of their badgering.
