Summary
"To high-end defense attorney Henry Garrison, Win Hughes is the soft, warm woman who gave him solace during one of the most trying times of his life. 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. 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 her as a client. This trial could take his firm into the stratosphere. Still, he's determined not to get burned by Win again. But as 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..."--
