Forensic investigator, Kate Quinn is ready to ditch her good girl image. Called “Sister Kate” by friends and co-workers, she is resolved to do something daring. A bet with her friends gives her the perfect opportunity to make her move on tough, sexy deputy district attorney, Jericho St. James.
Jericho has had his eye on Kate for a long time, but has held back. He doesn’t want to ruin their working relationship and is afraid that once he has her, he won’t be able to let go. Yet when he watches Kate transform from prim and proper to a sexy and tempting siren, he can’t hide his feelings any longer.
Jericho and Kate’s relationship becomes even more complex with Jericho running for district attorney and prosecuting a case against a man Kate knows is innocent. Kate begins to investigate against the orders of the current district attorney, gathering evidence to free her friend and guide her to the real killer.
Her findings lead to some unlikely places and to some people who can make life very uncomfortable for her and Jericho. Will she jeopardize his election? Can he accept her for who she is? Can she give him up if it is what is best for him?
Karen Anders wraps up the Women Who Dare series with a winner. Mine to Entice was wonderful. I read it cover to cover, much to the chagrin of my family. Ms. Anders has a knack for bringing characters and relationships alive. The friendship between Kate and her friends was, as in the previous books, heartwarming and entertaining to read. The sparks flying between Jericho and Kate sizzle. Ms. Anders wove a sensual, enticing tale. This book, along with the other Woman Who Dare titles, has found a place on my keeper shelf.
