After her testimony sent an innocent man to prison, law student Gina Blanchard vowed to spend her life righting that wrong. She passed up more prestigious opportunities to intern at a Tallahassee nonprofit dedicated to overturning wrongful convictions. But when she catches the eye of local hero Landon Vista, she realizes that Tallahassee may have more to offer than just a summer internship. Then she learns her newest case involves the man accused of murdering Landon’s mother…and possibly setting him free.

The people of Tallahassee still see Landon Vista as their golden boy and football hero…and as the man who tragically lost his mother. This painful past fuels his career working for a senator who’s tough on crime. But as Landon’s interest in Gina escalates, their secrets build…until her latest case makes him ask the question he’d never thought possible: Did his testimony send an innocent man to prison?

Please note: This book is a romance novel that straddles the line into women’s fiction.
