I started reading Karen Robards several years ago, when I picked up a copy of Bait at my local library. I fell in love with her style of romance and suspense, but what compelled me to find and read her other works were the characters she created that really drive the story. Since then I've begun purchasing her new books almost on auto-pilot, as soon as I see she has a new one coming out. Pursuit I loved. Justice... not so much.

There were a couple of things that bothered me about this book. First, the characterization of some of the principals surprised me, Mark in particular. I had a hard time understanding his motives and that made it difficult for me to champion their relationship. He proposes marriage to Jess, and then betrays her by kissing her boss, one of his many ex-lovers, in what he later describes as a "hot, salacious kiss," but she's supposed to forgive him because it was only a kiss, not an affair, and really it's her fault for pushing him away, and she has screwed up attitudes about men... Really? (Is it any wonder why?) In terms of relationships, he comes across as completely unsupportive and untrustworthy to me, a huge departure from his character in Pursuit. Consequently, I completely understood Jess's reluctance to renew her relationship with him, even at the end of the book, refusing to commit to any sort of permanent arrangement. Thankfully, his willingness to protect her and the lengths he goes to for her keep him from being completely irredeemable.

This was a good, twisting read! Jess is supposed to be keeping a low profile because as the only witness to a major murder, she doesn't need the media attention. The problem is with her first big win at a new firm, she is photographed along with the whole defense team. This media attention brings Mark back into her life. Mark is her ex boyfriend and also the secret service agent who has been assigned to protect her. Questions start piling up like why did the victim recant on the stand? Was she forced? Where did the attorney that Jess replaced really disappear to? And last, why is someone now targeting Jess?
I thought the first chapter was perfect! It set the stage for the entire book so well. Jess is such a strong character but she does have her vulnerabilities...such as Mark. Mark is determined to keep Jess safe from whoever is trying to kill her but the distraction she presents is amusing to 'watch'. There are plenty of plot twists and surprises to keep you turning the pages all night!
I rate this a 4/5. I really liked it but be warned it isn't a 'clean' read by any stretch of the imagination.

This book was a great follow up to Pursuit. It was a good stand alone book on its own so I wouldn't call it a sequel, but it dovetailed nicely with the first book.

The book was just a good solid romantic suspense read. Marc and Jess's relationship seemed more realistic in this book and, again, meshed nicely with the book in which they first met. Their relationship began under extremely trying circumstances and, afterward, each of them had baggage to work thru in this book.

A disconcerting note about the book was the odd bit at the end where the youth detention center was being investigated for wrong doing. In the beginning, the two young girls at the heart of the story escape from the center and we are only told that "it is a bad place to be at night". Nothing else is brought out about the center but at the very end of the book, Ms. Robards seems to be tying up a loose end that really didn't exist.

An enjoyable read.

An outstanding and action-packed thriller that will have you gripping at the seat of your pants starting with the very first chapter! I thought the first novel with Jess and Mark was fantastic but picking up where these two love-birds left off, was even better. In the middle of a very important trial and having moved up in her career at a reputable and well-known law firm, attorney Jessica Ford, does not like the outcome in the courtroom. Faced with a rape victim on the stand, young Tiffany Higgs is falling apart already, so how is she, as defense councel, to do? If she attacks her, in any way, her firm will lose. So, when recess is over, imagine everyone's surprise, when the girl drops all charges? Being viewed by all the networks and relentless reporters, it doesn't help matters that Jess is in witness-protection. Almost dying several months earlier, with the crucial death of the First Lady, Jess had no choice but to change her last name, change her appearence, by coloring her hair blonde, and losing the love of her life, Mark Ryan. After seeing him kiss her boss, in her own office, she did the only thing she knew, she ran for the hills... now walking home, not thinking about anything in particular, a horn beeps and it's Mark, himself. After making a huge fuss and wanting to get in his suv, she finally does only to hear that she must live low-key. And then Mark tells her that someone in Texas, very close to the President, has been murdered and they both could be next. He insists on driving her home and she insists right back, they are no longer a couple. However, when she walks slowly to her house, a looming figure, behind a tree, attacks her. As if he can read her mind, Mark is once again saving her without fail and he is not leaving her again.Read more ›
