Karen Robards has done it again! Her most recent novel Sleepwalker is such an adrenaline rush you will find yourself out of breath while reading the story. The main character is Micayla Lange, an off-duty police officer spending New Year’s Eve house-sitting for a close friend of the family. This unfortunately was not a part of the plan for Jason Davis as he chose that particular evening to rob the locked safe in Uncle Nicco’s office. The petite and beautiful Micayla can kick some serious butt, and she proceeds to do just that to Jason when she encounters him leaving with the money laden suitcases. During the fight, incriminating photos of Uncle Nicco’s involvement in the murder of a councilman become dislodged from one of the suitcases, changing the entire nature of the situation. The knowledge they now have of Uncle Nicco’s mob connections puts both of their lives in jeopardy forcing them to team up to escape his gang. What ensues is an exhilarating chase where Micayla and Jason have to battle the elements as well as outwit an endless supply of pursuers. Matters are further complicated with their growing attraction to each other and the understanding that once they are safe, Micayla has every intention of doing her duty and arresting Jason for robbery.
Ms. Robards is the author of forty books, mostly of the romantic suspense and historical variety. She creates engaging characters, imaginative plots, and often inserts humor into her writing. It is no wonder that Newsweek has proclaimed her one of the most popular voices in women's fiction.
