Deputy Marshal Jake Taylor has seen plenty of action as a member of the U.S. Marshals Special Operations Group, including a recent stint in Iraq. But he’d much rather go back to that hotbed of trouble than deal with his next assignment: providing protection for federal judge Liz Michaels. His antipathy toward her is just as strong as it was five years ago, when her husband—his best friend—died in a possible suicide. But as Jake works to keep Liz safe, he discovers she’s not a cold-hearted workaholic wedded to nothing but her job, as he expected. Forced to reevaluate his opinion, he also finds himself grappling with a growing attraction. And when it becomes clear that an unknown enemy may want her dead, the stakes go up. Because now both her life—and his heart—are in danger.
My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
This romantic suspense novel has everything lovers of romantic suspense need for a great story. The hero, Jake Taylor, as a federal marshal, is on a mission to protect the heroine, Liz Michaels, a federal court judge. But the two have a past. Jake blames Liz for the death of his best friend.
Things heat up when the man after Liz might not be who everyone thinks. Jake needs every ounce of professionalism but finds it hard, not only because of the animosity he holds for Liz, but also because he’s falling for her hard.
This novel isn’t predictable and will take you through some twists and turns. It delivers edge-of-the-seat suspense while supplying the reader with plenty of romance along the way.
