June 2014
Shirley Fleming |  RATING: A 
SYNOPSIS: In the courtroom, criminal defense attorney Iris Sinclair is cool and confident. Yet around her new client's guardian, she loses all composure. Atlanta club owner Nash Dupree is an infamous playboy who could compromise Iris's heart as well as her case. For once, she feels like a curvy goddess instead of a straitlaced lawyer-even if the evidence suggests what he's looking for is strictly short-term.

Iris Sinclair is a defense attorney who works hard and is on top of her game.  Most of her clients are teenagers who make bad decisions or happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.  After one particularly grueling case, Iris decides to take a much needed vacation.  However, when she met the guardian of her newest client, she quickly changed her mind.  Nash Dupree’s first glimpse of Iris leaves him speechless for a moment.  The attraction between them is red-hot.  He needs the beautiful attorney to help with his niece but he also plans for Iris to be his next affair.  After spending time with her, Nash realizes something deeper is developing between them.  What he intended for the short-term, turns into an uphill battle to win her heart for a life-time.

Iris Sinclair is a picture of confidence when she is defending her clients.  The court room is the one place her self-assurance takes center stage.  Her confidence takes a nosedive when it comes to romantic relationships.  Because of an incident in her past, Iris has a low self-image.  She is always comparing herself to other women and finding herself lacking.  She can’t see what a beautiful person she is inside and out.  She continues to feel that way until she meets the one man who informs her in no uncertain terms, that she is indeed a beautiful desirable woman.

Nash Dupree is a very successful entrepreneur.  This sexy alpha male, who has graced the cover of many national magazines, is never without female companionship.  He enjoys women but gets bored with them after a few months.  He is a confirmed bachelor and has no plans to ever commit to one woman.  His young niece is the only permanent female in his life and he intends to keep it that way.  That is, until he meets Iris, who shakes up his ordered life and makes him realize he can’t live without her.

This hot romance is set in Atlanta, GA.  The story has a well-developed plot and the pacing flows naturally.  The chemistry between Iris and Nash cannot be denied.  These two characters sizzle between the pages.  Of course there are a few hiccups along the way with the heroine’s inward insecurities and outside interference.  The hero in this book is used to having what he wants and nothing and no one will stand in his way.  Love conquers all.  The minor characters on both sides are just as believable as the main characters.  They all work well together and the result is one awesome story.

LEGAL SEDUCTION is an excellent read from cover to cover.  The author, Sharon C. Cooper, did a great job.  Looking forward to her next love connection.
