Cowboy in Her Courtroom (Romancing Justice, Book 1)

A romantic cowboy. A sunset kiss.  Everything is perfect until he’s charged with murder.

Callie Fletcher just wanted to sit on the terrace of her favorite hot spot and watch the sunset over the Texas Hill Country. A table for one, a glass of pinot and the best view in Austin. When Dominic Jaxson, a gorgeous, wealthy cowboy, charms her into sharing the view, the sunset gets even more magical.

Months of sunsets later, their affection blooms into love, with dreams of a future together. Never does Callie imagine that this caring and tender man might hide a secret or that he might be a criminal. But then he walks through the doors of her courtroom, charged with a crime.


As a court reporter, Callie knows her way around the legal system, and she’s certain Dominic isn’t guilty. But can she uncover the clues to prove his innocence, or have she and her handsome cowboy shared their last Texas sunset?

Cowboy in Her Courtroom (previously published as Incredulity) is the first in a fast-paced, clean romantic suspense series.

Someone who doesn’t live in Orange Blossom. Someone nobody knows.

When they meet, it’s the perfect opportunity for them both. Harley gets to start her quiet life, and Jake gets to do what he secretly loves.
