Sonya Walters can't believe the man she's just berated for making her late to an appointment with a top-notch lawyer is none other than said lawyer, Dwayne Hamilton. Thank God, Dwayne is the forgiving type because she's depending on him to save her sister from a murder rap. As they work together to solve the murder, Sonya is as impressed by Dwayne's skill and strength as she is by his warmth and gentleness. Judging by the lingering glances he gives her, Sonya is sure her "ice queen" act isn't going to run him away from his sensual pursuit of her. For once, she's glad-she's fallen head over high heels for the gorgeous knight in shining wingtips!

Dwayne has never met a woman like Sonya. She takes his dormant heart by storm, turns his life upside down and sets his body on fire in a way he's never known. Determined to save Sonya from the demons of her past, Dwayne sets out to show her the love of a good man.

Ms. Byrd has combined the best ingredients of mystery, adventure and romance to create a riveting literary cocktail with the wallop of a Zambeezie Zinger! Sip this provocative drink slowly, readers, and savor it to its luscious end. (Nov., 300 pp., $4.99)
