Code of the Justice Hunters



Congratulations to Amanda and Paula F., the winners of Carol's giveaway. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Code of the Justice Hunters

1.  Thou shall not be personally involved.
2.  Thou shall not reveal your identity to those you protect.
3.  Thou shall not take vengeance.
4.  Thou shall not forsake your fellow Hunters.

         Justice Hunters.  They will go to hell and back to aid law enforcement in the ever harrowing battle against crime.
     I compete on a trivia team and one night there was a question about the comic series ‘The Justice League’.  After looking up the answer, I became intrigued and asked the ‘why’ question: Why not create a league of individuals, not super heroes, dedicated to justice?
    Thus was the genesis for my latest Carina Press HER DARK PROTECTOR and the Justice Alliance, a shadow society that for centuries has guarded justice and the rules of laws and followed its own code of conduct.  Whenever chaos threatens to reign, the organization steps in.  Calling themselves the’ Justice Hunters’, the members come from all segments, from pawn shop owners to world leaders, but most have something in common: they have lost a dear one to violence.  As opposed to vigilantes, they strive to protect witnesses, find evidence and otherwise help to maintain order.  They have eyes and ears everywhere from the courtrooms to the streets. 
                When justice calls for help, they’ll answer.
In HER DARK PROTECTOR corruption has permeated the highest ranks of the local justice system in south Florida.  Only Gail Malloy, a state attorney with a death wish, will risk everything to bring down a notorious drug lord.   To avenge the deaths of his wife and unborn child, Justice Hunter Jason Hawke will  do everything in his power to make sure Gail stays alive long enough to put the crime boss away for good.  Even if it means keeping her with him day and night...

Do you love heroes and heroines who answer the call to danger no matter what the cost?

I will give away two digital copies of HER DARK PROTECTOR to two lucky commentors.

Bio: Award-winning author Carol Stephenson lives in southeast Florida with her beloved Shih Tzu. She's an attorney by day and author by night. She's best known for her emotionally drawn, hard-driving romances.  In her free time she indulges in travel, photography and competing on a trivia team.

  5. "Do you love heroes and heroines who answer the call to danger no matter what the cost?"
    This line really caught my attention Carol.
    It sounds like this is what "Her Dark Protector" addresses and I would very much like to read it.
    (I also have a beloved Shih Tzu!!)

    1. Jane, I love writing heroes and heroines who would go to hell and back for principles. Aren't Shih Tzu's the best? Maddie's my heart.

  6. I love heroes and heroines who answer the call to danger no matter what the cost are. I also love your mantra for the Justice Hunters. We do need to believe that when the time comes, we need to make a stand for what we believe in or there are people out there looking out for us.

    The Justice Hunters kinda reminds me of the TV series "Person of Interest". Need the skills and the know how to protect the innocence and to bring justice to the corrupt.

  7. Hi Carol,
    Love the sound of this series. It is on my TBR as well. I really like the idea of a Justice League where the heroes and heroines are regular people who can rise to the occasion. What a great concept. I'll look forward to reading them. Isn't it funny how these ideas come to us? I wish you many sales and a successful career as both an attorney and a writer.

  8. I'm intrigued that the Justice Alliance has a centuries' old history - for me, that just adds a layer of interest and mystery. I know this book will be excellent because I'm a fan of your legal thrillers! Looking forward to this one!

  13. I do like heroes and heroines who can handle themselves in times of danger and are brave. I also realize not all characters fit this role. It depends on their personality. If they answer the call of danger I would like them to be reasonable and believable.

  14. Boy Carol, I think I'm going to be in real trouble! I added Her Dark Protector to my TBR list and found a bunch of other books you have written that I ended up adding to my TBR list too. I love suspense. Tie that in with romance and a strong, dedicated Alpha character determined to do the right thing and I'm sold!

    Looking forward to reading many of your books.
