Derek Rosewood is never going to marry-ever again. Fresh off the heels of a bitter divorce, there are only three things he cares about: his daughter, his career, and his bachelorhood.
An attorney by trade and happily married to his job, he saves the drama for the courtroom and keeps women at arm's length. Their fragile, sequined hearts are safer that way. And besides, he's not in any condition to offer them the love and attention they so foolishly seek from him.
It's not until he's assigned as the financial conservator for an aloof, enigmatic heiress that he finds his professional-and personal-boundaries pushed to the wayside. They're all wrong for each other. Emotionally unavailable. Bitter. Jaded. And he's supposed to look out for her best interests. Protect her.
But this wasn't supposed to happen. And for that reason, Derek Rosewood pleads the fifth.
Contains mature themes.
