About All’s Fair in Love and Law

The senseless death of their brother-in-law, Mike Lynch, has left the Sullivan boys reeling. Still coping with the death of their brother, Jimmy, they are pulling together to help their sister Kay deal with the loss of her husband as she slips into depression.All's Fair in Love and Law cover

During an outing with Kay’s twin girls, Patrick Sullivan, a new captain at the Chicago Police Department, comes face-to-face with a woman who gets his body tingling all over. Little does he know he’ll see this woman again all too soon–in the courtroom.

C.J. Demarco, also known as, Charlie, is a shining star of a defense attorney at Schotz, Pearson and Freemont. When she gets a perp off on a technicality, Patrick’s department isn’t looking too good and he has to answer for it to the media. But he has much bigger issues to deal with. Someone is brutally killing prostitutes and dumping them in the trash in the city’s alleys. The Garbage Man Murderer case is going to take all of Pat’s limited resources to nail; not an easy task considering the recent budget cuts.

Despite working on seemingly opposite sides of the law, Charlie and Pat can’t deny their attraction to each other. When Charlie is set to defend a high-profile case, Pat can’t believe she would be involved in trying to get such a creep off. But Charlie isn’t about to reveal why she does the type of work she does or the reason getting too involved with Pat scares the hell out of her. Their budding romance is threatened. And for Charlie, one mistake, could be a fatal one.

Read an Excerpt!

Her breath caught as his smile dazzled in reaction to something one of the girls said to him.  Certainly his size alone would draw attention.  Close-cropped reddish hair, her favorite shade of blue eyes, like his kids’, and muscles in that thin T-shirt that teased a woman to cup them with her hands.   She had had a hard time concentrating on stage during the first set.  Her eyes had sought his involuntarily again and again.  And damn if he wasn’t sending her appreciative vibes.  Must be this crazy heat in April.  She extended her lower jaw and blew air up over her face.

Frankenstein called for his bride.  Charlotte counted to ten and then ran out from behind the curtain.  The crowd jumped to their feet and cheered.  Wow, this is what it must feel like to be a rock star.  Emi, I think I’m jealous of you.  Maybe I should switch careers and we can do a sister act.

Her ego stroked, she enjoyed every minute of the performance.  Mummy led the cast off stage into the audience.

“Pick us.  Please pick us!” The hunk’s kids yelled.

Well, of course I will.  Her hips gyrating, she sashayed in his direction, her eyes locked on his heavenly blues.

“Here she comes.  She is going to pick us this time.”

She averted his eyes and focused on his cute kids.  “Hi girls.  Would you like to come up on stage with me?”

“Is it OK, Uncle Pat?  Can we please?”

“Sure it is.  Go ahead.”

Saints be praised.  No wedding band on the man’s hand, either. “Would Uncle Pat like to come up on stage, too?”

“Thanks but no. I’m good.”

“Well I bet you are.”  He grinned and boyish dimples creased his fair-skinned cheeks.  Her purposely-suggestive laugh made him blush.

Here’s what reviewers are saying about All’s Fair in Love and Law!

“I have loved this series from the get-go and each book keeps drawing me in. The Sullivan Boys series blends intriguing plots, complex characters, and loads of conflict to keep you turning page after page.

K.M. Daughters proves over and again that they have mastered the art of storytelling. I can’t put one of their books down, despite the late hour, despite the fact that I’m facing an early morning with my kids, despite knowing I’ll be sitting at my desk gulping caffeinated soda the next day just to stay awake.

The perfect blend of romance and suspense is what you’ll find in All’s Fair in Love and Law!”
