About Love on Trial by P.C. Zick
Two lawyers on opposite sides of the aisle despise one another…at first.
When Jude Crandall fights for justice, she is a formidable opponent. Malik Moore may hate his job as an attorney for a prestigious Chicago law firm, but he stands up to the force of district attorney Jude in the battle of opposites.
They disagree on most everything, except the love they both feel for their dogs, a Boston terrier and a Jack Russell terrier. When Jude’s Italian mother and Malik’s Iranian mother decide they are a great match, Jude and Malik are thrown together out of the courtroom. Meddling mothers, along with two dogs, turn enemies to lovers in this courtroom romance.
But his Persian heritage and her father’s political aspirations throw the biggest barrier of all between them. Their dogs, Clyde and Suzanne, show them how to love. It’s up to the two lawyers to overcome culture, religion, and their families to find happiness. When Malik decides to leave the law to become a veterinarian, he must stand up to his family. And Jude, a dedicated career woman, must do the same despite her father’s political aspirations.
Love on Trial is the first book in the Rivals in Love contemporary Chicago family saga romance series. The six Crandall siblings find success in their careers, but sustaining a relationship eludes all six of them. Their father, a U.S. senator, demands perfection, and their mother, heiress to a Chicago meat-packing conglomerate, only wants grandchildren to fill her empty nest. A lawyer, a pilot, an actress, a race car driver, a cable news anchor, and a chef—over-achievers all—discover there is more to life than a career.
