When Chicago’s hottest legal star defends a powerful young billionaire, she must decide whether he’s a killer, or the one to unlock her most private fantasies.
“He gave me more freedom, if that’s possible, to be myself. Yes the world is a crazy place, but I’d finally found a way to fit into it.”
Wilhelmina Green is the lawyer of choice for Chicago’s wealthy offenders. Mina’s latest victory, the acquittal of a U.S. senator, has made her a media sensation. To the outside world she appears to have it all, but she’s still searching for a man with the strength to bring her dark fantasies to life.
CEO Jonathon Thomas Heun, a suspect in the death of his personal assistant, hires Mina to represent him. He slowly draws her into his seductive world of wealth and power as they investigate the murder. Despite her attraction to him Mina holds back, sensing Jonathon is keeping part of himself closed off from the world. And from her.
As the passion of their affair intensifies, Mina soon realizes her desires were just the beginning of an erotic dive into Jonathon’s lifestyle.

The memory of each victim pushed me toward the cliff’s edge.
The flashlight I’d purchased from la tienda flickered, then faltered. I cursed the cheap product and tucked it into my backpack, then set it behind the lush ferns carpeting the forest floor. My eyes adjusted to the darkness, and I took note of my location. No longer pitch-black, the sky grew deep blue above the palms and tropical trees. The color of the sky matched my destination, the ocean depths.
Time was running out. I dropped to the ground and continued by crawling, feeling my way. Small, sharp stones dug disciplinary cuts into my knees and palms. Payback. It was an intellectual thrill to defend gangsters and murderers. Criminal law is my specialty, and it gave me a huge rush to plead someone’s case, knowing what’s at stake for that defendant. What I didn’t sign up for was the guilt, a side effect of my growing, successful career. Innocent people, the victims, should have been my responsibility.
