A rainmaker for a prestigious law firm, JD Ackerman may be known as the "King of Torts," but he's not even in the game when it comes to love. Since the death of his wife, his life has revolved around work.

Lance Winstead isn't scoring touchdowns in the happily-ever-after department, either. Estranged from her senator husband, she's biding her time until the upcoming election's over so she can file for divorce.

Neither Lanie nor JD could have guessed fate would throw them together under highly unusual circumstances. Or that the senator would be murdered, making Lanie the prime suspect.
