Does a girl ever really learn from her mistakes?

Detective Sergeant Megan Taylor thinks so. She once lost her heart to a man who was too charming and she isn’t about to make the same mistake again – especially not with sexy defence lawyer, Scott Armstrong. Aside from being far too sure of himself for his own good, Scott’s major flaw is that he defends the very people she works so hard to imprison.

But when Scott wants something he goes for it. And he wants Megan. One day she’ll see him not as a lawyer, but as a man … and that’s when she’ll fall for him.

Yet just as Scott seems to be making inroads, a case presents itself that’s far too close to home, throwing his life into chaos.

As Megan helps him pick up the pieces, can he persuade her he isn’t the careless charmer she thinks he is? Isn’t a man innocent until proven guilty?

Available in paperback, large print and audio CD/download from most English speaking countries and online bookstores. eBook available on all the major platforms.

Kathryn Freeman

Kathryn Freeman portraitKathryn was born in Wallingford, England but has spent most of her life living in a village near Windsor. After studying pharmacy in Brighton she began her working life as a retail pharmacist. She quickly realised that trying to decipher doctor’s handwriting wasn’t for her and left to join the pharmaceutical industry where she spent twenty happy years working in medical communications. In 2011, backed by her family, she left the world of pharmaceutical science to begin life as a self-employed writer, juggling the two disciplines of medical writing and romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero…

With two teenage boys and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to bother buying a card again this year (yes, he does) the romance in her life is all in her head. Then again, her husband’s unstinting support of her career change goes to prove that love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes can come in many disguises.

    I was attracted to this novel, because I have a work with a female detective lead on the go. I wanted to ‘research’ another author’s angle. I was buying sand paper in a Pound Shop and the books were immediately adjacent! (Sorry)
    What a delight however to become enthralled by a superb relaxed read, with real depth of insight into the thoughts of the protagonists. Well done, a super read.
    I really enjoyed this book from first page to last, romance at it’s best.

    ….The writing is outstanding; I feel like I lived every emotion with Megan and Scott and often found myself holding my breath as the chemistry and tension was so strong. I cannot wait to discover more of Kathryn Freeman.

    I understand that Kathryn is just about to release her third book with Choc Lit (out August 13th) and it is bound to be another scorcher.

    …Too Charming is filled with steamy anticipation, and sizzling gratification, with some fascinating character studies and procedural police work to put together the case against the bad guys.

    …I found myself chuckling often, and crying even more often throughout this engaging story. I had a terrible time putting it down to go about my daily responsibilities.

    …I loved the way the pair of them grew closer and how supportive Megan could be when she wasn’t judging Scott for things he hadn’t done. There’s also a darker side to the tale with murder and crime and battles for justice, but there’s no mystery to it and the darkness doesn’t really infect the tale. Mostly this is sweet and fairly light, enjoyable and fun amidst the arguments and kisses.
    If you like your romance with a bit more of an edge that usual lovely fluff, this provides it without ever crossing the grim-dark border. I found it easy and enjoyable, Scott is a real sweetheart and I adored Sally. A truly charming tale.

    From the word go there was something about ‘Too Charming’ that just sucked me in. From the first page, Megan was a character I knew I would stick with; strong, independent, fiercely protective, and a devoted mother to her young daughter. Just seeing the fierce reaction she had whenever she was around Scott had me beaming, and I was excited to see how he would go about reworking her opinion of him. Scott was a sexy breath of fresh air. His character was developed perfectly, and I went from groaning at how he could be such a typical male, to fanning myself when he did something so sweet and loving that it surprised not just Megan but him too.

    …I adored the chemistry that seeped off the page in this book, and witnessing the transformation that both Scott and Megan made throughout the novel was inspiring and truly a dream come true for any romantic!

    I loved it! It really did keep me hooked throughout, a definite love story. It’s my first romantic novel I’ve ever read and I think I’ve been spoilt now by reading this one first. I will definitely be looking forward to reading another book by Kathryn Freeman.

    …From the start, the plot of this book was an absolute page turner and kept me interested until I realized in such a short time that I was at the end. How it started with Megan needing a babysitter for her daughter and Scott coming to the rescue was brilliant. Somehow, it was a way to get Megan to see that there was more to him than the dismal opinion she seemed to have. The dialogue was absorbing because Megan didn’t find it easy to trust while Scott worked so hard to see that they’d be good together. Besides, he wasn’t above using Megan’s daughter to get what he wanted because it seemed as if her daughter really liked him and if she did then Megan should as well. The sex scenes were perfect where they were in the story and revealed so much of why Megan had trust issues. One of the few men she’d been with left her pregnant and didn’t want anything to do with his baby, so how was she to know that Scott was any different? What I liked so much about each character was their determination to do their job and do it well. It illustrated their strength of character and that although they were on different sides of the law that sometimes opposites attract.

    Superb book that has it all- romance, muder mystery and car chases…. Brilliant book and I think it would be a good movie. Definitely in my top 10 all time favourite books. This author is a genius at getting the reader hooked! I was up to 3am reading this and when I woke up at 8am it was the first thing I reached for… Luckily no school run for me that day!

    Scott Armstrong is hot! He’s a smart, handsome and arrogant lawyer who defends the worst criminals. Megan Taylor is on the other side of the fence, trying to lock the bad guys away. She’s a hardworking Detective Sergeant and single mother who takes her job seriously but has had her heart badly broken. Megan is lured by Scott’s charms, finding she can’t resist his persistent chase. Unwilling to be hurt again, she pushes him away trying to ignore the fireworks that explode each time they are together. It is not until Scott suffers a family tragedy that requires her police help that she sees he might not just be the flash hot lawyer he portrays but be vulnerable about a dark past that has made him the man he is. There is amazing chemistry between these two characters. It’s a great romantic read with a dash of murder/mystery thrown in.

    This book was superb! Couldn’t put it down. Story grabbed me from the first page. There was great chemistry between the two main characters. Author made the characters very realistic and with real emotion. The female lead was a really strong and feisty woman but the author still showed her vulnerability. Author showed that the male lead may have an outer shell of charm and confidence but underneath he is just as vulnerable as anyone else. Police investigations made for a good twist. This is a must read for anyone considering read it. Cant wait to read further work by this author.
