A modern woman scares people. Her drive, her ambition, her independence. She's perceived as threatening and intimidating. But not by William. To him, she's the perfect woman, and he wants more than to admire her from afar.
Cara loves her life. As a top law student in London, she seems to have it all together. Dead set on her ambitions, pursuing love is the least of her priorities.
That's when she meets William. The dashing lawyer boasts the most merciless tongue she's ever come across, whether it's in debate or in bed. Blunt and sharply clever, he ticks every box, and even adds some of his own-things Cara never knew she desired in a man.
Before long, William puts her convictions on trial, and he drives a ferocious prosecution. Cara finds it hard to resist him, but being together could have disastrous consequences. If William wins the trial, she may lose more than just her heart.
