As the new senior partner at a small-town law firm, Christina Sanchez Jones has a lot to prove. After the failure of her high-profile marriage to a professional football player, she's determined to give her daughter a stable home in a welcoming community. When Christina meets hunky volunteer firefighter Bruce Lancaster, she has no idea he works at her firm -- or that he expected a promotion to the position she accepted. With a Mexican-American heroine who's a few years older than the hero, Michele Dunaway's Legally Tender (4) definitely breaks the mold. Readers will admire Christina's strength, courage and devotion.
