Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled series, returns with the first installment of the Legal Briefs series!

A Washington, DC, defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing—with his southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he’s a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him.

Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan.

Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart, the mother of his beloved ten-year-old daughter. Jenny is getting married—to someone who isn’t him.

That's definitely not part of the plan.


Sofia Santos is a city-raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions.

But when Stanton, her "friend with mind-blowing benefits," begs her for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi, to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves. Her head tells her she's crazy...and her heart says something else entirely.

What happens when you mix a one-stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage, and a gun-toting Nana?

The Bourbon flows, passions rise, and even the best-laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.


I love Emma Chase Romance.  She is such a gifted writer. Her heroes and heroines are like no other in the genre. Her books are always fresh and fun. You are guaranteed a lot of laughs and a few tears but above all you are always given a book that you will love, a book you will be completely satisfied with when you finish and a book that will have you hoping for more.

Overruled had me laughing, swooning and crying from beginning to end.

Stanton, although a little selfish and arrogant, I really think he was adorably clueless about what he was doing.  He won me over with his Southern drawl and his passion to love.  He loved to the point of crazy even if he was a little unconventional about it.

Sophia is AWESOME!  I love her!  Latinas are often underrepresented in romance and if we get a role in the story, more often then not, we are usually the maid or the nanny.  I loved that she was a professional,  smart, independent and very passionate about her family, her career and her personal life.

With a cast of unforgettable secondary characters, Legal Briefs promises to be a Must Read series for me! I am already looking forward to Sustained and Appealed!

Overruled is a sexy romance about first loves, first heartbreaks, and what it means to finally find the one person you cannot live without.

5 Sexy Stanton Hearts!
