    "Extraordinary writing . . . a not-to-be-missed reading experience."--RT Book Reviews on Against All Odds (4½ stars, Top Pick)  

    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 cold hearted 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.

    My Review:
    This is the first book in the new Guardians of Justice series. It is a Christian romantic suspense book. The first part of the book had more romance than suspense but it was still a good book. I read the book quickly and was caught up in the characters and their lives. I did think the romance between  Jake and Liz developed a little quick in the beginning. It could have used more development. My one pet peeve was the four instances of using a phrase saying that the character used a bad word. I think the book would have been just fine without it especially since it did not fit the male Christian character from a previous story. I liked the plot and characters and the writing was good. I have read many of this author's books and liked them. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.  Overall a good book that I recommend. :)
