A Dutiful Daughter

Justice Iyoma Haruna has always done her father’s bidding, an arranged marriage included. Though cries of nepotism now surround her judgeship, she’s vowed to prove herself worthy. Then, the one man who made her forget duty walks into her courtroom. The only man who knows her secret. Will one night of forbidden passion blow her life to bits? 

A Dragon-slaying Barrister

Bespectacled Femi Williams appears mild-mannered, but he takes on the rich and powerful in defence of the weak. And he wins. Not in his personal life, though, so Femi’s sworn off romance. Appearing before Justice Iyoma Haruna, he knows they’ve met. But where and when eludes him. When he realises just who she is and what she did, will he expose her as a liar and fraud? 

Or will he make her his?

Excerpt:  

Eager to get back to the office, Femi swept his eyes around the car park looking for Felicity. His gaze halted when he spotted Justice Haruna leaving the courthouse. Dressed in a white-and-black striped dress, the garment’s lines draped enticingly over her slender frame.

A vision of his hands mimicking the dress and caressing those gentle curves assailed him. Femi’s heart lurched in his chest at the strangely familiar image, farfetched as it was. 

Standing stock still, his eyes trailed her as she confidently strutted towards what must be her official vehicle, a dilapidated Peugeot 308—typical of government cars to be so poorly maintained, especially autos for lesser-ranking officials.

She was beautiful. Tall and slim with just enough curves to make his mouth water. Her smooth, brown skin gleamed in the sunlight’s reflection, reminding him of a tempting mug of hot chocolate. On the cold and rainy nights that Abuja was known for, Femi often indulged in the drink, savouring its frothy decadence. He’d gladly trade his usual for a sip or two of her though. 

He watched as she halted mid-stride, swung her bag forward, reached in, and rummaged around until she plucked out a mobile phone. She anchored it against her eat, a bright smile splitting her face.

His throat suddenly went dry at the sight. What a gorgeous mouth, full and pouty with a captivating set of white teeth.  Something about that smile called out to him, and he felt his own lips part into an unexpected smile. Justice Haruna was nothing short of enchanting. Distracting. 

And again … familiar.

Teaser Thursday — The Judges’s Secret

As promised, here’s another glimpse at a segment of Chapter One.

💕💕💕💕💕💕

Femi fell silent. Somehow, he knew deep down that whatever his encounter with the judge, it hadn’t merely been in passing. But he just couldn’t place it, and regardless, he had other things to think about, like the case. 

He would have to let it go for now. Besides, he could just ask her when the court proceedings ended today. Maybe she’d remember.

Femi shook off the bizarre feeling that seeing Justice Haruna had aroused. Determined to get his mind back on the case, he turned to Felicity again.

“Are all the documents ready for today? We need to win this one for Jacinta’s sake.”

“Yes, sir, everything is set. She can’t go back to her mother.” Felicity patted the stacks of files in her lap, shaking her head in disgust. “What an evil woman. Aware of her daughter’s abuse and allowing it to happen. She doesn’t deserve custody, and we’ll make sure she doesn’t get it. We’re prepared, sir.”

 “Good, Felicity, good.” Femi ground his jaw as he flicked his gaze out of the car window. “And you’re right. Enslaving young children under the guise of a legal guardianship agreement is evil. It’s a recipe for abuse, and the practice has to be stamped out.”

Felicity blew out a sorrowful sigh. “Hopefully, after today, Jacinta will never have to go through that again.”

Femi nodded. “Whoever this new judge is, we have to convince her of that.”

I’m so excited! Can’t wait to share this story with you all.

Here’s the blurb.

Teaser from Chapter One

“The new judge is a woman,” Felicity added. “Justice Haruna.”

Femi quirked his head and widened his eyes. 

“A woman, are you sure? There’s only one on the High Court, and it’s not Justice Haruna.” Femi reached for his black suit jacket slung over the front seat and fished his phone out of the inside pocket. “Do you know anything about her?”

“Yes, I googled her immediately.” Felicity pulled her mobile phone from her purse. With a tap of the screen, she placed the small device between them. “She’s recently appointed, a transfer from Lagos.”

Femi peered at the grainy photograph of Justice Haruna, dressed in complete legal regalia. The large black gown with a white collarette hugging her neck almost swallowed her slender frame. The traditional judicial white wig framed both sides of her oval face. A face with a deep scowl and devoid of makeup that looked none too happy.  

“She’s very young. Looks like she’s barely out of her twenties,” remarked Femi. He plucked the phone from his assistant’s hand and stared at the screen.

“She’s thirty-six, according to the online rumours,” Felicity said. She placed a finger over her jaw with a thoughtful look in her eyes. “I also found out from the Internet that her father is a Senior Advocate, a Mr Oseni. He’s a close friend to the governor.”

“Must be one of those over-privileged judges pushed to the top by strong connections and very little experience,” Femi huffed.

Curious, he stretched his thumb and forefinger over the small screen to enlarge the image. An uneasy rumbling stirred at the base of his stomach as he focused on Justice Haruna. Something about the woman was very familiar, especially the eyes. He’d seen her before. Felt like he’d met her. Why did he feel like he knew her intimately—a complete stranger?
