On Sale: March 24, 2009
Featuring: Jessica Monaghan; John Riordan
Add to Wish List
When rookie lawyer Jessica Monaghan gets the call from
John Riordan, the senior partner at the illustrious law
firm for which she works, she thinks the plum assignment
he offers her might be a life-changing moment. And sheâ€™s
right, it isâ€”only not in the way she hopes. Itâ€™s late on a
Saturday night, and Riordan is busyâ€”and, Jess can tell,
well on his way to being drunk. He needs Jess to meet
First Lady Annette Cooper, for whom Riordan is a personal
lawyer, at a Washington, D.C., hotel. Jess is thrilled:
This high-profile assignment must mean sheâ€™s on her way to
bigger things. But bigger isnâ€™t always better.
Jess doesnâ€™t remember much; only that in the course of the
meeting with Annette Cooper she ended up in the backseat
of a speeding car. All she knows is that the car crashes
en route, killing the First Lady. Badly injured, Jess is
the only survivor of what is trumpeted around the world as
a tragic accident.
Although she has no memory
about the events leading up to the accident, Jess still
wonders: Was it really an accident? The FBI agent on the
case, Mark Ryan, senses Jess is hiding something. As
Ryanâ€™s suspicions grow, Jessâ€™s world starts falling apart.
Riordan suddenly dies of a heart attack, and his personal
secretary also dies in a car accident on the way to his
funeral. In fact, everyone who might possibly know the
details about the First Ladyâ€™s meeting is dead. And then
Jess understands: if she remembers that night, sheâ€™ll be
Terrified and certain the First Ladyâ€™s
death was no accident, Jess has only Mark Ryan to turn
to. . . .

Sass, spunk, and spirit, you sure know how to write 'em. I'll have to search for clues and red herrings.

Wow! Karen Robards a virgin. Trying to fathom this. (Big Grin). When I think of Karen Robards, I think of one of the sexiest books I've ever read -- "Tiger's Eye" -- and get all weak kneed...(another grin). I'm a long-time fan and really love your new books. I laughed myself silly in "To Trust A Stranger"...
Thank you for all the pleasure you have given this reader!

I have been holding on to the books Scandalous and Irresistible for the longest time because I understood the books were part of a trilogy. Which is the 3rd book?
