New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando returns to her latest, steamy Conflict of Interest series with this electrifying tale of murder, justice, and intense attraction.

Jaxon Bentley is a hardnosed criminal lawyer whose entire life revolves around his work. He’s been asked to represent Scarlett Reyes, a woman accused of murdering her police officer husband in cold blood. All the evidence points to Scarlett being guilty and Jaxon is sure it’s an open and shut case.

But when he meets his client, he can’t help but feel that she’s innocent and that there’s more to the story than meets the eye. With a bit of digging, he uncovers a connection to the notorious Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and realizes that Scarlett’s case is a complicated and difficult one. It certainly doesn’t help that the two share an immediate and passionate attraction. Will Jaxon be able to prove Scarlett’s innocence or are the two doomed to fail both in court and as a couple?



I am a big fan of Chantal Fernando’s Wind Dragon MC series and was excited to read her newest book. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this story because I don’t usually read many books with lawyers in them. The characters in the story captured my attention and I wanted to know so much more about each character.

Scarlett, I felt so much heartache for because of the things she went through in the past few years of her life. But the strength she has throughout the story despite the possibility of going to prison was incredible.

Jaxon, I instantly loved with the way that he knew how good he was at what he does and the way that he instantly felt an attraction for Scarlett. It was obvious though there was so much more to him then just being a sexy lawyer.

Seducing the defendant is about Scarlett is accused of murdering her husband, who hires Jaxon to defend her case. But is there more between them then just a lawyer and client relationship.

Chantal Fernando has once again done a wonderful job with this story and the amazing way that she capture my attention with her intriguing storyline. I loved the mention of the characters from her other series Wind Dragons MC. This book is a definite must read for everyone.
