The Prosecutor

Harlequin Intrigue


Two attorneys with everything to lose fight for justice.

Chicago assistant state’s attorney Zac Hennings just got handed a political hot potato: keeping the convicted murderer in a high-profile case behind bars. He’s up against his most formidable—and alluring—adversary. First-year law student Emma Sinclair is passionately fighting to free her brother. But she needs the take-no-prisoners prosecutor’s help.

Caught between attraction and letting a killer go free, Zac walks a tightrope. Until evidence surfaces that the real culprit’s still out there. With his career and Emma’s life on the line, Zac races to right a terrible wrong. Refusing to back down, he’ll bring a cunning lawbreaker to justice—or die trying.

What readers are saying...

“An intriguing story line and non-stop suspense provided the basis for this page turning story….I would highly recommend this story to readers who love a compelling story, suspense and a love story between two complex and very loveable characters!”

~Author Nicole Leiren


"This enjoyable romantic suspense tale is a great look at the machinations involved in the legal world and also provides a heartbreaking perspective on the difficulty of proving one’s innocence. The author does a wonderful job of presenting compelling characters who each are convinced of their version of the truth and the somewhat frightening journey to the answer as complicated by the infamous ‘blue wall’ provides an entertaining escalation of tension."
