Protective Custody by Lynette Eason

Carly Masterson, a deputy U.S. marshal, has been ordered to guard the judge that let a criminal go free, a criminal who murdered her mentor right after being released. Can she put away her anger to protect Nick, who she has a strange attraction to despite his role in her mentor's death?

I enjoy Lynette's books, and this one is no exception. The plot is interesting and well-developed. The characters are unique and likeable. Carly is a strong character who battles between her heart and her duty, which is a conflict a lot of women face. The idea of judges being paid off for a verdict or even threatened for a verdict is an interesting one, and I have to wonder how many cases are influenced by outside sources. What I like about the Love Inspired Suspense books is that the romance is not the main storyline. It is a nice bonus, but solving the mystery drives the story.
If you enjoy Christian suspense with a little kick of romance, check out all of Lynette Eason's books.
