COPY ISBN
The escape of a serial killer coincides with the brutal murder of a judge (formerly an attorney who originally put him away), and everyone involved goes on high alert. Yet when defense attorney Brynn Holloran's boss hires a high-powered bodyguard agency to protect her, she rebels. No way will she let anyone keep her from defending her innocent client, no matter how dangerous it gets—or how appealing her totally hot keeper Erik Morgan proves to be. A stubborn-to-a-fault, justice-driven heroine and a hero pledged to protect her discover passion in a romantic thriller that keeps the action lively and everyone guessing, with more than one unexpected twist.
VERDICT Taut, seamlessly planned, and emotionally intense, Griffin's latest draws readers in and keeps them on edge in an adrenalin-fueled story that, despite a title that doesn't quite fit, delivers. A rewarding, chilling read. Griffin (Touch of Red) lives in Austin, TX.
