Sonja Knight is a twenty-nine year old lawyer, specializing in criminal law. When someone attempts to break into her and fellow contracts lawyer Chelsea's home, it is LAPD Officer Steve Miller who takes the call. Housemate Chelsea openly flirts with the handsome policeman, but it is Sonja who is the recipient of his heated glances. Steve does what he can to secure their residence, then offers them his card and their case number.
Twenty-five year old Steve cannot get Sonja out of his head. He clings to an image of her smooth mocha skin, lips begging to be kissed, and mile-long legs. Theirs was an instant attraction, and Steve knows he needs to act on it. He calls her, then goes to the courthouse to ask her to lunch. This African American woman is not only intelligent, but the first woman who has stirred his heart. He only hopes she doesn't hold any racial biases that would interfere with a future relationship.
G. A. Hauser tells a wonderful story of love that crosses racial barriers. Steve and Sonja face a biased community, sick jokes from co-workers, parental anger, and ill will from old lovers who can neither forgive nor forget that an interracial relationship is flourishing where their own failed. When Sonja has to place Steve on the witness stand, and is ordered by her boss to discredit and disparage him, can she do so at the price of her job? Miller's Tale is not only a great story, but a recommended read!
