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?

Gripping, emotional, sexy, and sweet, Seducing the Defendant has it all! This is a true romance, but with a bit of suspense that keeps you on your toes it will have you hooked right from the start. I burned through the pages because I could not put it down. I didn’t want to leave these characters for a second!
Jaxon is a criminal defense attorney, and the best of the best. When he’s hired to take on Scarlett’s case he goes in determined to win and prove her innocence, but he doesn’t go in prepared to fall in love. After suffering at the hands of her abusive husband Scarlett thought she was finally free when he went missing. Two years later she’s summoned back to where it all began when his body is found. Hiring Jaxon was the best decision she ever made.
I loved Jaxon. Chantal Fernando has the ability to write some of the most irresistible heroes and Jaxon is no exception. He’s smart and strong, all while still being romantic and sweet. Even before falling for her he treats Scarlett so beautifully that you can’t help but swoon over him. Scarlett was also an easy character to love. Even being through all she has she’s very well rounded and kind. She’s stronger than she was, without being bitter or cold and leaves you wanting to just give her a great big hug!
