Seducing the Defendant by Chantal Fernando ~ Amy’s Review


I have been a fan of Chantal Fernando for years.  I enjoy her writing style and how well developed her characters are.  I am always ready to pick up her newest book and get lost in her stories.



Jaxon Bentley is a hardnosed criminal lawyer whose entire life revolves around his work. He’s been asked to represent Scarlett Reyes, a woman accused of murdering her police officer husband in cold blood. All the evidence points to Scarlett being guilty and Jaxon is sure it’s an open and shut case.

But when he meets his client, he can’t help but feel that she’s innocent and that there’s more to the story than meets the eye. With a bit of digging, he uncovers a connection to the notorious Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and realizes that Scarlett’s case is a complicated and difficult one. It certainly doesn’t help that the two share an immediate and passionate attraction. Will Jaxon be able to prove Scarlett’s innocence or are the two doomed to fail both in court and as a couple?


I liked this book.  The storyline was exciting with some twists and turns.  The writing was perfection as usual.  We got to check in with characters from the Wind Dragon series which I loved.  Seeing other peoples perspective of character’s I’ve come to love was something I hadn’t even realized I needed.

However I just could not seem to connect to these characters.  I was excited for Jaxon’s book after I read Breaching the Contract but, I never really fell into his story.  I found myself more intrigued with secondary characters and what their story might be.

While this series hasn’t seem to grab my attention and hold it as well as her past series I will absolutely continue to read this series.  They are all great books they are just not quite what I need them to be.
