She kissed him full on the lips with a full body hug. ?Can?t we be friends??
He remembered her warm hugs from the trial. More than friends. Much more. Unfortunately, only I thought that.
He smiled, a fake one. ?Of course.? I see her for what she is, a selfish person who takes no prisoners. Let the strong survive.

?That La Jolla Lawyer is one of the best mysteries I have read. This book is brilliant. I couldn't put it down. In the character of Matt Dawson, Robert Rogers has created one of the most dynamic protagonist in the genre. Watching Matt fall from a legal impresario to a deadbeat drunk only to rise again like a phoenix from the ashes of his life is simply breathtaking. Rogers evokes that pain and the passion of his main character in vivid detail. The reader cannot help being captivated by this story.?- David, author of the highly acclaimed Narmer's Pallet.

The plot kept me on my toes from the beginning to the end, anticipating what might happen next.?- Suzanne, successful author of sweet historical romance and young adult fantasy books, Savannah.

I fell in love with Matt, even if his client didn?t. The book and the characters had me by the throat from the first page until Matt got his revenge. Now, I have to go back and read your earlier books, the couple I missed. And, please let me know when the next one is coming out. The only thing you do better than developing your characters is developing your plots. Your books are refreshing to read. How do you do it??-Karen from La Jolla.
