Rune Stamford, District Attorney and Resident Dom for Crimson Heat, is being blackmailed. When notes and pictures of him and Eliza show up on his desk he is thrust into a situation that makes no sense.
Eliza Simmons is not only a court reporter who's had a thing for the DA, but she's also falling for The Shadow in a big way. When secrets are exposed and people are threatened, Rune and the men of Crimson Heat set a trap and when they're done, they'll have their Rat.
Once inside the courtroom, Rune took his place as lead attorney in the case, and waited for everyone to enter. Moments later, Eliza walked in. Her cheeks flushed a pretty pink as she glanced over at him. Biting back a groan, he let his lips curl in a predatory grin. Her pink-stained cheeks deepened to crimson as she caught the corner of her lip between her teeth.
Rune bit back a groan. Good God, woman, you’re going to be the death of me.
Eliza ducked her head as her glasses hung perilously off the tip of her nose. Just before they fell, she pushed them up effortlessly with one of her slim dainty fingers. Shit, what was wrong with him? He shouldn’t be watching her so intently. He should be concentrating on the task at hand. But how could he?
With her simple, white cardigan sweater, a plain knee length pencil skirt, and a dainty strand of pearls draped around her neck, it was hard to do anything else. Like always, her hair was swept up in an unkempt bun, which was held in place with some kind of clip that, to Rune, didn’t flatter her at all. This wasn’t the Eliza who visited Crimson. No, that woman was his sex kitten. That was a woman not afraid of what anyone thought of her.
