Eighteen books later, the Madaris family and their friends are still going strong. After working on an especially stressful and high-profile case, attorney De Angelo Di Meglio has decided to take some well deserved time off to devote to an equally important project: winning the heart of Peyton Mahoney. Because Peyton is his sister Samari's best friend, their paths have crossed quite often over the years and De Angelo is hoping to have her see him as more than just a brother figure and he hatches a plan.
Samari and Mackenzie, Peyton's friends and law partners, notice that she is a little abrasive and on edge lately. So they gift her with 2 weeks at a singles-only resort in the Bahamas. It is the perfect way for her to unwind as she approaches her milestone 30th birthday. What Peyton doesn't know is that De Angelo is part owner of the resort and she probably won't remain single for long.
Courting Justice is a great twist on the "friends becoming lovers" story.
