It seemed that every time Josette Langley's heart was breaking, Marc Brannon was involved. It had been Marc's testimony, when he was only a rookie cop, that helped the defense attorney defeat 15-year-old Josette's rape charges. They met again years later and found themselves on the brink of love . . . until words spoken in anger shattered their newfound trust. Even then, the attraction between them remained, but their romance couldn't survive after Josette accused Marc's best friend of murder. But Fate isn't finished with them yet.
Nine years after their heartbreaking first meeting, the case that finally divided them has been reopened -- and both the dedicated Texas Ranger and the rising star of the Attorney General's office have been assigned to work it. Despite their past differences, Josette and Mark respect each other's abilities, integrity, and strength. And, as they sift through the evidence, uncovering a web of danger and betrayal, they can't resist reopening the case of their divided hearts as well.
