When Hartley Brennan steps into a room—everyone stops to take notice. Made famous by being born into the Brennan Dynasty, a prominent and powerful California family, she gained notoriety in her own right for a vaunted career, which culminated with her ascension to the post of Los Angeles’ District Attorney.
a dramatic novel
She is brilliant, driven, and dangerously sexy—the kind of woman men dream of being seen with in public and ravaging in private.
Hartley dedicated her life to being a public figure. Settling down was never a high priority where she was concerned; she was far too busy to allow personal demands to be made on her time. That all changes when while attending a friend’s art gallery opening, Hartley is suddenly face to face with the enigmatically charming ways of Lucas Davenport. A much younger, unfairly gorgeous CEO, Lucas had a touch she craved for the first time in her life. It was a rare love, and for a high-profile woman like Hartley Brennan, it was completely forbidden.
Now during a critical election year, everything is vibrantly spiraling out of control. Rapidly approaching the pinnacle of her career, a buried ghost from Hartley’s past re-emerges to threaten everything she’s worked her whole life to build. Convicted serial killer Collin Brooks, who she tirelessly prosecuted, has created a delusional fantasy world in which he and Hartley are meant to be together. As the tables are turned, she’s forced to question the loyalty of everyone around her and discovers that no one in this life is really who they may seem.
