Ahh! This novel was the epitome of a H-O-T read. Gwen blew me away. This was my first novel from the author and it can be read as a standalone. I promise you though, you will want to read all the novels, because I most certainly do.
Rex and Charlotte's story is a fast paced and steamy read. From the first page they are non stop. While you are reading, it feels as though a lot of time has passed, but the book takes place over the course of 4 days. Thats it. I say this to try and show you how much fantastic development was put into this novel. After reading it in its entirety, I felt as if I knew all the characters and had forever. I jumped into he third novel in the series, and still had no trouble getting to now everyone or following along. THAT is good writing.
Charlotte is a lawyer that prides herself on her pro-bono work for women. She has made her career knocking down guys like Rex. So why is she the lawyer that he calls when he is charged with just a such event. Of course, he is innocent. Charlotte just has to prove it.
From that moment on I felt like I needed to fan myself with the turn of each page. The immediate and undeniable chemistry between the characters was palpable. Granted, they both did their best to stay professional, people only have so much self control.
The scenes in this novel were expertly written. I am not always a big fan of lots of sex, but in this novel it really worked for the characters. It didn't feel forced or over written. Gwen has a talent with balancing just the write about of Erotic with romance.
This was a HIGHLY enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone that likes a good racy romance. Again, it can be read as a standalone, but I have a feeling that this series as a whole would be best done its justice being read for the start.

When Rex Renaud, the COO of Mercier Shipping, is arrested for a crime he didn't commit, he knows he'll need a miracle to clear his name … and sassy lawyer Charlotte Andreko is the perfect woman for the job.
Charlotte has built her career defending pro bono clients against womanizers like Rex Renaud, and she'd much rather let him sweat it out in a jail cell than defend him in court. Yet Rex swears he's been set up, and when he offers her a shocking sum of money in exchange for her legal counsel, the financial security is too tempting to resist. The court dubs Rex a serious flight risk—how many people have their own jet?
—and he's released on one condition: Charlotte's his new jailer, and he's stuck with her until his arraignment.
But when a bomb threat sends Rex and Charlotte on the run, neither is prepared for the explosive chemistry and red-hot passion that flare between them as they hunt for the truth about his arrest.
