Chloe St. Claire is the quintessential good girl, daughter of privilege and society's darling, but inside her grows a gnawing that asks "Is this all there is?" She took her current job as a police psychologist to broaden her world past charity functions and ladies' lunches. The job has strained relations with her doting parents and the assistant district attorney and rising political star her parents want her to marry.
But Chloe wants to make a difference in the world.
She gets more than she bargained for when she's assigned to the case of Vince Coronado.
Vince is a legend on the force, but if he weren't so effective, he'd have been busted off the force long ago. Abandoned at six by a prostitute mother to a series of foster homes and finally on the streets at thirteen, he was headed for jail until he was arrested by a cop who cared. That cop saved him; now he's dead at the hands of a prison gang leader, and Vince is determined to find justice.
Instead, Vince finds himself suspected of murder—and Chloe holds the key to getting his job back.
An attraction as ill-timed as it is powerful raises the stakes for them both. When evidence mounts that Vince has gone rogue, will Chloe rebel against everyone to defend him or remain, as she's always been, THE GOOD DAUGHTER?
