All D.A. Gil Montgomery wants is a robbery conviction, but what he gets is a mistrial, thanks to the new teacher in town, Patience Andrews. Gil meets his match in the headstrong Patience, who challenges Gil's expertise. Yet as they work together to catch a criminal, the willowy innocent begins to charm the stubborn prosecutor. Gil had made the wrong choice once--with his son's mother. Can he trust his judgment now? Is Patience merely the bane of his existence...or the woman meant to be his wife?
