Celeste Rice has come back to her hometown of Gold Rush, Colorado after being away for ten years.  She had never intended to return to the place, which held so many terrible, violent memories for her, but unfortunately for Celeste, trouble has found her again in the form of a disturbed ex-boyfriend who has begun stalking her.  When it becomes apparent that Darrell has followed her from Vermont, Celeste turns to her old friend Mick MacGilvary for advice.  Mick works for the Gold Rush Sheriff’s department, and he is a member of the SWAT team.  He is more than capable of handling the situation for her, but Celeste is worried about letting him get too involved.  After all, why would she want to trade one controlling man for another?

Mick has never forgotten the young woman with whom he was good friends, or what happened to make her run far away…from Gold Rush and from him.  Mick knows that to win Celeste over, he will have to control his natural bossiness and protectiveness and prove to her that she can trust him, with her life and her love.

As they begin to get to know each other all over again, Mick and Celeste realize that the chemistry between them is as hot as ever.  Celeste is still hesitant about a relationship with Mick, though.  It’s also proving to be very hard for Mick to hide his SWAT team persona when Celeste has a psychotic stalker watching her every who is determined to make sure Celeste belongs to no one but him.

IN HER DEFENSE is the second very hot and steamy novel in the HEART OF JUSTICE series.  This is a story that deals with some very heavy emotional issues; sexual assault, gun violence and stalking, but in author Denise Agnew’s deft hands the end result is a soul-stirring and deeply satisfying romance that left me craving the next SWAT team member’s story.  I highly recommend IN HER DEFENSE to anyone else who loves a suspenseful, well-crafted tale with characters who make you truly care about them.
