She didn’t care for cowboys, but when danger comes calling, she finds she may have misjudged one.
As the county judge, Maggie has to climb over old-fashioned, prejudiced thinking. Nothing new there; she was used to proving herself in every new arena she entered. When her school days’ tormentor walks into her courtroom, all the old hurts come flooding back. Unfortunately, he’s turned into a stud.
However, Maggie has had enough rowdy, uneducated cowboys in her courtroom to ensure she never will fall for this or any other cowboy, even though her body heats when Jed enters the room. When he helps her get home after an incident at the local bar, he shows her he is more than a regular cowboy. And how can she keep away from him when he takes her home and treats her to the best afterglow she’s ever had?
Jed, who never needed a courtroom, has been in twice for cattle and water in the last three months. To make matters worse, it’s damned irritating that Maggie Winchester, the girl he used to call a four-eyed bookworm in grade school, is now the county judge and damn hot. He leaves court, telling himself she means nothing to him now, but he was never good at lying to himself. When he takes her home from Spurs, he acknowledges she has cast a spell over him, and he is determined to claim her.
Against their best efforts, their relationship blossom. Then, a dangerous copycat from a mob boss’ trial that Maggie presided over harasses her. It ignites all of Jed’s protective instincts. As they battle Jed’s rules to keep her safe, someone attempts to kill her. That isn’t in the copycat rule book. It’s the final straw. The Waters family protects Maggie and goes hunting for copycats. For Jed, losing Maggie is not an option.
