From Publishers Weekly
When prominent Tennessee attorney Collier Smith first meets beautiful Brittany Banks, she is wandering in the rain along a remote highway. Though bruised and beaten, she refuses to be treated at a hospital, so Collier has no choice but to take her with him to his cabin retreat until the rain lets up and he can take Brittany home to her humble trailer. With little verbal communication between them, their physical awareness of each other is a constant presence, and it compels Collier to visit Brittany again several days later even though their association could ruin his career. Collier is in the running for a federal judgeship, but a rich, power-hungry local is determined to see him fail. In addition, his self-absorbed girlfriend, Lana, wants to be engaged soon. The sexual attraction between Collier and Brittany is palpable, but it is a tenuous foundation for their difficult relationship, which is limited to a couple of dinners together and his sporadic visits to her trailer. Several plot twists will also give readers pause Brittany's brother, Tommy, is in prison for causing the accident that left Collier's stepbrother a paraplegic, and Brittany's attacker on that rainy night happens to be Collier's nemesis. In the end, it's too much of a stretch to accept these coincidences or to imagine Brittany and Collier's mutual lust giving way to life-altering love.

Brittany Banks was a beauty from the wrong side of town. Collier Smith was a high powered attorney on his way up. She reminded him of things he would like to forget. When he stopped on the side of the rainy Tenn. mountain road to help her, his life was never the same.He had a longing or need for her that drove him deeper into her world.

Despite his best intentions, the stranger on the road changed his life forever...
The moment Collier Smith pulled to a stop on the rainy Tennesee mountain road and gently led the dazed, badly bruised woman into the warmth and safety of his car, his own life was shattered.

Brittany Banks was the wrong woman at the wrong time. But could there ever by a right time? He was a high-powered attorney on the fast track for a federal judgeship, engaged to a prominent socialite. Brittany was a vulnerable beauty from the wrong side of town. And, in a cruel twist of fate, she was a reminder of the past he had struggled to forget. So why her why now? Why this insatiable longing, this fierce need to protect her, to possess her-a need that will drive him deeper into her world...perhaps at the cost of his own.
