by Nora Roberts 'Do you really consider the law enough of an outlet for passion?' 'The way I play it.' Former naval officer Zack Muldoon needed a tough, no-nonsense lawyer to save his delinquent kid brother from a prison sentence. Ambitious, workaholic Rachel Stanislaski was not who he had in mind. But when he and the beautiful, cool-headed lawyer are made co-guardians of the young boy, he discovers there's a lot more to Rachel than meets the eye...and he likes what he sees.
