After ten years in the Houston DA's office, watching the guilty get off on technicalities, Dixie Flannigan was hardened, worn-out, and ready for a more hands-on style of justice. So she left it all behind to become a bounty hunter. Now, free to bring in criminals with no holds barred, she's already a local legend in the jails and courtrooms for her combination of brains, cunning, and macho style. But she's about to discover that being tough as nails is harder than it looks.When her old friend Belle Richards - "Texas's Hottest Defense Lawyer" - calls in a favor two nights before Christmas, Dixie has no intention of taking the job. If she doesn't show up for her family's Christmas dinner, she'll be in the doghouse again. Then Dixie finds out Belle's client is an accused child-killer who ran down an eIeven-year-old girl during a drunk and claims not to remember it. Parker Dann looks guilty as hell to the jury, and Belle is sure Dann's going to jump bail to save himself ten-to-twenty in prison. Dixie tells herself she's taking the job to see that justice is served and Dann faces his punishment, but she's really out for some private revenge on the child predators of the world. But what she should have remembered - and what she's about to learn the hard way - is that Lady Justice herself can be a bitch.Dixie tracks Dann to the wilds of North Dakota and has him safely cuffed and shackled in the back of her Mustang, when a massive Blue Norther blizzard hits. It will take every ounce of her Superbitch abilities to get them back to Texas in one piece, hopefully before Dixie's bitch facade cracks...and before she starts believing that Parker Dann - drunk, child-killer, and bail jumper - is innocent.
