“Henry Garrison sat on the back-porch steps, looking out at the Atlantic.  The waves were calm at this time of day, an endless beat that once had been the rhythm of his childhood.”

Order of Protection (A Courting Justice Novel) by Lexi Blake

 

Synopsis:

A sexy and suspenseful new contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake where love and law entwine for a conviction of the heart.

To high-end defense attorney Henry Garrison, Win Hughes is a woman he met during one of the most trying times of his life. She’s soft and warm, and he finds solace in their brief relationship. But Win has a secret. She’s actually Taylor Winston-Hughes–born to one of the wealthiest families in the country, orphaned as a child by a tragic accident. Win moves in the wealthiest circles, but her lavish lifestyle hides her pain. 

When her best friend is murdered in the midst of a glittering New York gala, Win’s charged with the crime, and the only person in the world she wants to see is Henry. 

Henry is shocked at the true identity of his lover, but he can’t reject the case. This trial could take his new firm into the stratosphere. Still, he’s not getting burned by Win again. And yet every turn brings them closer together. 

As the case takes a wild turn and Win’s entire life is upended, she must look to the people she’s closest to in order to find a killer. And Henry must decide between making his case and saving the woman he loves…

  1. Happy Friday!

    My FLF comes from a book I will be reading next, Falling for the Cowgirl by Tina Radcliffe.

    “I like Zeb Turner for the assistant ranch foreman position.” Travis Maxwell looked across the conference table at his sisters, Lucy and Emma, hoping for confirmation, and then shoved another cinnamon roll into his mouth.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊

  2. Good first line! I’m sharing from the prologue of King’s Folly by Jill Williamson on my blog today, so here I’ll share from the first chapter:

    “A procession of fifty men made their way through the cool desert night from the royal retreat in Canden toward The Gray. Fifty-one men, technically, though the king did not count the wailing convict riding in the cage since the man would soon be dead.”

    Happy Friday!

  3. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first paragraph to This Wilderness Journey by Misty Beller. Here I will share the first two lines from the book I’m currently reading, I Am My Beloved by Caryl McAdoo. It’s a retelling of Song of Solomon.

    “Abishag held the cups level and took small ladylike steps, careful not to slosh. She grinned then placed the wine — except water really, her mother wouldn’t allow her real wine — on the stone table.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend with lots of quality reading time! 😁

  4. I’m sharing about The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd on my blog today. I’m currently reading Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh so I’ll share the first line from that here:

    “He shouldn’t be here.”

    Happy weekend! 😀
