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.

Fatal Judgment is the first book in the Guardians of Justice series, and I can't wait to read the next book!  Filled with suspense, danger, and strong characters that I couldn't help but love, this story captured my interest from the first page.

Just like in real life, each of the characters has a past that affects how they relate to others.  Some have broken relationships, while others have broken bodies, broken hearts, or broken dreams.  It was interesting to see how each of the characters handled their personal relationships during the good times, as well as during times of extreme fear and danger.

I found Fatal Judgment to be so much more than a story of suspense and romance. It was a perfect mix of fast-paced action, faith, tenderness, and second chances.  I highly recommend this book!
