From New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinskycomes an emotional battle of wits, will, and passion, first published in 1996.

A legal powerhouse, Assistant District Attorney LauraGrandine stares across the aisle at her opponent, Maxwell Kraig, the renowned big-city lawyer imported to her small Massachusetts town to act as the defense for the accused. Tough and talented, Laura has always fought hard for every victory, and she knows that she has found a worthy adversary in the skilled and charismatic Kraig, a man whose fiery spirit and need to win match her own.

But their intense passions will not be confined to thecourtroom -- as outside, a furious contest rages between them, one that could lead to incomparable joy ... or unbearable heartbreak. Because, beneath her hard exterior, Laura Grandine is a woman who aches to love and be loved. But it must be on her own terms.

2.0 out of 5 stars The title is the best thing about this book Sept. 28 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Normally I enjoy Delinsky's books a great deal, but this book was a very big disappointment for me. It's hardly surprising, really, since this was one of her very early books, and not only has her writing matured since then, but the style of romantic writing has changed as well.
Laura, the "heroine," is an assistant district attorney, and she comes up against Max, the "hero," in the courtroom. It's pretty much lust at first sight for her -- she's very shaken by their first meeting -- and it seems he's similar affected, since he starts immediately pursuing her despite the ethical problems of their being opposing councils in a murder case.
Both Max and Laura are shallow characters, and Laura, despite being a "career woman," is irritatingly weak. She allows Max to completely dominate her life, once they're together, and pretty much completely falls apart when the course of the relationship doesn't run smoothly. On top of that, I failed to understand what she saw in Max, other than looks. And I didn't understand exactly what Max saw in Laura, either.
I'd advise skipping this one, and looking into Delinsky's later work instead. She really has matured into a marvelous writer, but this isn't the book to read unless you're a hard-core fan who wants to sample absolutely all of Delinsky's work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sexual attraction, sexual tension, sexual consummation - Ugg March 3 2014
By Sue Averett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I used to read Barbara Delinsky and loved her books. Unfortunately she has gone the way of other modern writers. I don't understand how she can make a strong woman lawyer into a simpering lovestruck dummy who just takes the abuse from a man that is so handsome she turns to jelly just seeing him. Nothing happens in this book except the sexual attraction stuff. There isn't any story and no issues are resolved to any conclusion. Don't read this unless you are on a deserted island with nothing but this book. Sorry Barbara. Cut the bad writing, give us an interesting story, not that I will ever read you again.

The title says it all.
I didn't finish it -- the story lacks substance.
Waste of reading time.
Find no further words.
