For high-powered personal injury attorney Noah Byron, the good things in life come with a price tag - cars, houses, women. That's why he represents only cases that come with the possibility of a nice cut of the action. But as a favor to his ex-wife, he meets with the mother of twelve-year-old Joel, a boy poisoned by tainted children's medicine. While the official story is that a psycho tampered with bottles, the boy's mother believes something much more sinister is at work...and the trail leads right back to the pharmaceutical company.

An arrogant duke does the unthinkable - he falls in love with his mistress.... She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the mêlée, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in - were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind.

L.A. Witt tells a good story. Her Characters are well-developed and her in-depth research makes the reader feel as though they are present in the city or town where the story is set. Combine these elements with excellent attention paid to technical elements, and you have a real page-turner.

Cute hipster and interior designer Michael doesn't do love - not after his ex screwed him over. Sex is a different story, though, and the gentle giant who's painting the mural in the old mansion they're restoring might be perfect hookup material. Gil is just Michael's type with his solid muscle, wicked sense of humor, and the hazel eyes that seem to see into Michael's soul. Trouble is, Gil does do love. He wants romance and forever, and he's set his sights firmly on Michael. Michael's not going there again.

Strong, well-developed characters, a good plot, and good grammar and punctuation combine to make stimulating read that will bring the reader back for more. I now own three series from L. A. Witt. And so far, I haven't found another author who tell a story as good as she does.
