Widowed judge Cara Forrest lives a grief-filled existence, sustained by the light of her life, her young son. She has no time or inclination to lose her heart again—especially to the likes of Drake Mercer, the rakish attorney who appears in her court on a weekly basis.
But Drake is completely distracted by the sad and beautiful judge. After an intense encounter, he gently pursues Cara, and successfully makes his case for her heart.
But a fragile love is threatened by Cara’s unexpected opportunity for higher office and false rumors about the ethics of their relationship. The choice is theirs: whether to be sustained by love or allow themselves to be pulled apart by the currents of doubt.
Water of Life is the ninth and final book in the Bourbon Springs Series.
