6 Reasons Why Lawyers are Hot

My latest series, London Legal, features lawyers, or more specifically, solicitors. As I was mulling a name for the series, I realized just how many movies, TV shows and books feature lawyers. That got me thinking – what is it about lawyers that’s so attractive?

  1. Confident – there’s a sense of confidence that radiates from a guy who has a command of something as intricate as the law.
  2. Capable – men who are capable, who have a skill-whether it’s working with his hands to build a house or using his brainpower and wits to win a legal case, are definitely attractive.
  3. Intelligent – with all the years of study required to practice law, a lawyer tends to be more intelligent than the average person. And smart man is a hot man.
  4. Books – there’s something about a guy who works in an office where he’s surrounded by books that I find just so…yummy.
  5. Help Others – lawyers can use their knowledge and skill to help those in need. In Convincing the Secretary, Lord Grayson takes on the case of a recently widowed duchess, not because it will bring great fortune to the office, but simply because she needs his help.
  6. Suits – lawyers tend to wear suits, and back during the Regency era, they definitely all wore suits (a man wasn’t considered fully dressed unless he had on a cravat, shirt, waistcoat, coat and trousers). A man in an expertly tailored suit, all those layers of proper clothing…makes my fingers itch to remove each piece one by one.


ConvincingTheSecretary72webBusiness and pleasure is a mix no gentleman should consider.

Lord Grayson Holloway goes after what he wants—be it in the law office on his clients’ behalf or in the bedchamber. His new position as partner puts him closer to achieving his goal of becoming the most successful solicitor in London. There’s just one problem—his new secretary. Broad of shoulder yet mild of manner, Edward tempts Gray like no other. Yet the young man barely notices him.

Edward Fenton tries to be a good secretary, but being in Lord Grayson’s hard, commanding presence rouses Edward’s most forbidden desires. Wicked, naughty desires no gentleman should consider giving in to, let alone with his new employer.

Gray is more than willing to mix business with pleasure. But convincing Edward to take a chance on a future with him? That might be the most challenging case Gray has ever taken on.

Warning: Includes buttoned-up gentlemen who become undone, improper use of a desk, spankings, and a big bad lord who has a soft spot for his virgin secretary.
