For federal prosecutor Nick Rafter, an appointment as a judge is a dream come true, until he learns that his new clerk is none other than Samantha Parker, a beautiful young woman he has every reason to distrust. Working closely with her one again may be impossible - especially when he realises how much he still wants her. With Nick Rafter as her friend and mentor, Samantha once believed her legal career would soar. Instead, he believed the unfounded rumours that put her in the middle of murder. She'll have to convince him that he was wrong - and convince herself to stay away from him this time, no matter how great the temptation...To uncover, a legal scandal that threatens both of their careers, they must put the past behind them. But the feelings growing between them are too powerful to ignore - and now love is the most important promise they can keep.
