resilient female judge must find a way to work with her carefree clerk as they
find themselves in danger when a fugitive sets his sights on revenge in the
third book in New York Times bestselling author Chantal
Fernando’s sexy and thrilling Conflict of Interest Series.
Trinity Williams, known as “Medusa” for her stony expressions and unyielding
reputation, constantly has her guard up—how else is the youngest female judge
in the country supposed to survive in such a male-dominated profession? She
made the decision long ago that laughter and a carefree attitude have no
business in a courtroom and achieving her professional goals is the only thing
she has left. It’s just her luck that her new law clerk, Callum Hopkins,
believes the exact opposite.
Callum Hopkins thinks that nothing should ever be too serious in life—why can’t
he mix business with pleasure? When he first starts working for his hot new
boss, they clash at every turn. He makes it his mission to get Judge Williams
to see things his way for once.
But when Callum finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time as an
escaped convict comes after Trinity, he realizes it’s not all fun and games
anymore. Now in witness protection together until the authorities can catch the
fugitive, this unlikely pair must learn to trust one another and work together
to stay alive. Far away from the courtroom, Trinity and Callum are suddenly
free to stop butting heads, and stop fighting the growing attraction between

Another delicious addition to this series! Approaching The Bench is sexy, gripping, and of course full of the sweep you off your feet romance I’ve come to expect from Chantal Fernando. Every book in this series continues to be even better than the one before, which is incredible since every single book has been fantastic. I was hooked right from the prologue on this one.
I know I’ll hear it for saying this, but I tend to steer away from books with “tough” heroines. It’s not that I don’t think women should be strong and powerful, just that I’ve found a lot of them are written to be ONLY tough and don’t have much to them beyond that. Trinity however, she is PERFECT! Strong, powerful, and a bada*$ in her own right, she’s also smart, kind, and has a huge heart hidden beneath her cold exterior. Callum is nearly her complete opposite. Warm, outgoing, and funny he was impossible to not love. The chemistry between them is off the charts!
When not reading, writing or daydreaming she can be found enjoying life with her three sons and family.
Chantal loves to hear from readers.
