    From the Publisher

    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 Liz haven't warmed in the five years since she lost her husband--and Jake's best friend--to possible suicide. How can Jake be expected to care for the coldhearted workaholic who drove his friend to despair?

    As the danger mounts and Jake gets to know Liz better, his feelings slowly start to change. 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 mortal danger.

    Full of the suspense and romance Irene Hannon's fans have come to love, Fatal Judgment is a thrilling story that will keep readers turning the pages late into the night.

    My Take

    Irene Hannon, author of the Heroes of Quantico series, has done it again! She has taken the mystery & romance together to make the start of another excellent series—Guardians of Justice. The story dives right in at the beginning to get the reader hooked.

    Federal Judge Liz Michaels' sister is shot in the judge's home and it soon becomes apparent that bullet was meant for the judge. In walks, US Marshal Jake Taylor, straight from another case. He had no clue that the Judge was actually the widow of his best friend. With all the unflattering stories Jake had heard about the Judge from his embittered best friend, how was he going to protect her with unbiased professionalism?

    Hannon develops the characters a little at a time to keep the reader's interest in their developing friendship. Both the Judge and Marshal Taylor have their demons they have to work through. But it's those demons that have made them who they are and gotten them to this point in their lives. They each have preconceived notions of each other and, as they spend time together, they realize those notions are wrong.

    This is one of those books you just "need" to keep reading---that you "need" to know what's going to happen next. The characters draw you in so you have a hard time putting the book down. There is a faith-based undertone, but you know both characters rely on God to guide their way. I really liked this book and would highly recommend it! Hannon does it again!

    Irene Hannon is one of my favorite authors. If you have never read her suspense and mystery books, you are really missing something. I read her books in 2-3 days. They are very hard to put down. When I'm finished reading the book I can hardly wait for her next book to come out. Don't miss out on this great book.

    Perfect Blend of Romance and Suspense

    From the publisher: 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, former wife of his late best friend.

    Hannon's story about a US Marshal and a federal judge whose life is in danger is a well-done story. Widow and widowers with secrets always make for sympathetic characters, and when you put them together, add guns and a body count along with special touches of the dark side of reality, Fatal Judgment unfolds with the bet of the romantic thrillers. But for a bit of a slow mo before the assassin gets directly involved with the judge, I loved this story. Hannon did an excellent job with her characters whose inevitable romance unfolds with all the depth of emotion and self-examination, alibis, and patriotic dedication to making life better a reader could want.

    Contemporary, up-to-date, tasteful on the technology and terms without overloading or trying to impress the reader, Fatal Judgment will satisfy both the romantic and the suspense-seeking reader. We grieve from the start when an assassination attempt on Judge Michaels goes very wrong, and are pulled into the professionalism of the US Marshal Taylor who must keep his past impressions and exhaustion in check when he is called to duty. As the marshal realizes how ill his best friend has been before his apparent suicide, he is able to see how much Liz suffered at his hands. When the judge, Liz, has no choice but to submit to round-the-clock surveillance, she works with the marshals to uncover her mysterious threat while questioning the wisdom of letting anyone close to her heart again. A real tear-jerking scene is Taylor's revelation of the day of his wife's death and how it affected him.

    We rejoice when Taylor overcomes his prejudice against Liz and when Michaels forgives those who wrong her.

    Hannon shows the soft side of professionals who realize that faith is the ultimate motivation for any action, be it for selfishness or for good. Her touches of prayer and reasons to return to faith never preach and are a subtle presence throughout this story.

    What a ride this book is!! If you love Dee Henderson, you will love Irene Hannon. She is awesome at bringing the reader in and bringing life to a story. Jake Taylor is someone I would love to meet. He is a U.S Marshal. He has been through war and knows the pain of loss. Jake was widowed by his young wife and has struggled to move forward. He has returned to St. Louis and is now watching over, Liz Michaels, a federal judge, who is in danger. Liz is a workaholic who has kept much of her life a secret. Her sister has been murdered and now the killer might be after Liz. The Marshall's are on a hunt to find the killer and Jake is ready to protect Liz at all costs. But, a few short years before she was married to his best friend. A friend who has died and Jake isn't sure of the details of his death. He is harboring resentful feelings toward Liz, but that is because of what his best friend has shared over the years. Does she have another story to tell? As Jake is protecting Liz, he too is protecting his heart. He is beginning to see her beauty and is questioning all that resides in his heart. This book is filled with suspense and romance. This book holds so much!! Forgiveness, letting go and moving forward. As both these characters try to release themselves of yesterday's pain we get the front row seat in watching God move in their lives bringing peace and new beginnings.
