Fatal Judgment by Irene Hannon

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

My review:
Irene Hannon is still a fairly new author to me, this being the fourth book of hers that I have read, and in my opinion, she just keeps getting better. Her last series, Heroes of Quantico, was about FBI agents. This new series, Guardians of Justice is series is about three siblings bound by blood and a passion for justice.

I really enjoyed her first series, but it looks like this one may be even better. Great plot, characters, a lot of suspense. I really, really enjoyed this book. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down. The author also did a great job of portraying the work of a US marshal and also of a judge. The book had a great ending, and I was actually sorry to come the end. I am looking forward to more in this series.
