A Heart-Pounding Page-Turner

Fatal Judgment
Irene Hannon
ISBN: 978-0800734565
January, 2011/336 pages/$14.99

U.S. Marshal Jake Taylor has seen plenty of action during his years in law enforcement. But he'd rather go back to Iraq than face his next assignment: protection detail for federal judge Liz Michaels. His feelings toward the coldhearted workaholic haven't warmed in the five years since she drove her husband--and Jake's best friend--to despair . . . and possible suicide.

As the danger mounts and Jake gets to know Liz better, he's forced to revise his opinion of her. And when it becomes clear that an unknown enemy may want her dead, the stakes are raised. Because now both her life--and his heart--are in danger.

Full of suspense and romance, Fatal Judgment is a thrilling story that will keep you turning the pages late into the night.

Irene Hannon is a masterful storyteller! Romantic suspense is an apt description for the genre of this book. Hannon oh-so-slowly escalates the attraction and interest between Judge Liz Michaels and Marshal Jake Taylor while simultaneously and deliberately intensifying the danger and suspense surrounding the threat to the judge's safety. She gives us just a glimpse of the perpetrator early in the book and then gradually provides a bigger picture of his warped sense of justice and evil intent. The result is a heart-pounding story that is virtually impossible to put down until the last sentence is completed. I eagerly await the next book in this Guardians of Justice series.
