Called "one of the most popular voices in women's fiction" by Newsweek, author Karen Robards follows up The Senator's Wife (a bestseller on the Wall Street Journal and USA Today lists) with her heart-stopping new novel, The Midnight Hour.

Judge Grace Hart seems to have it all: a successful career, a bright, beautiful teenage daughter, and a comfortable home in a quiet Ohio suburb.  But beneath the placid veneer, darker truths lie waiting: Her daughter is testing the limits of Grace's patience, exploring a world of liquor and drugs, and a stranger has begun lurking about, threatening their safety and peace of mind.

Unnerved by the prospect of a stalker, Grace calls the police--and that's where Detective Tony Marino comes in.  But his presence creates as much confusion as it does security.  While outwardly they seem to be opposites, the undercurrents of a romantic attraction between them are undeniable.  When it becomes clear that the stalker has the power to destroy all that Grace holds dear, Grace and Tony join forces to stop him, soon learning that any hope for their future will require a reckoning with the past.  

Karen Robards pulls out all the stops to create her most nerve-shattering book to date, keeping readers breathless and guessing what will come next until the very last page.

From the Back Cover:

A TIME TO FEAR

Grace Hart seemed to have it all: a bright, beautiful daughter, a successful career as a judge, and a lovely home in an Ohio suburb. But beneath the placid veneer, darker truths lie waiting. Her fifteen-year-old, Jessica, is teetering on the cusp of drugs and delinquency. And someone is stalking the troubled teenager. Someone who has already violated their home and stolen their peace of mind.

A TIME TO LOVE

Now the police are involved. Grace is relieved -- and worried. Is Jessica in danger from a drug dealer who wants to silence her? Detective Tony Marino is on the case. He's too close for comfort, asking disturbing questions, probing into her long-buried past, igniting feelings Grace has tried to suppress. In Tony's strong arms, Grace finds comfort, protection -- passion -- as he tries to shield them from the evil lurking just beyond their door....
