    absolutely fan-freaking-tastic!!!!!!!! what a creative and suspense filled, well written journey...can't wait for book 3! ...

    Not having read the first book in this series, I had some difficulty with getting used to the style. The book starts with a very well written chapter in which we, besides the action, learn who Bianca is and what has happened in her (recent) past. The story goes on with telling us more ...

    2.5 stars rounded up but almost rounded down as it hard to call one heist, three escapes and a cliffhanger ending a story - little lone a book. Not much more happened in this one than the first book. The characters are still undeveloped, the plot is MIA and there is a whole lotta fluff...

    I read The Ultimatum and really enjoyed that. However I missed The Fifth Doctrine. I must say that The Moscow Deception I enjoyed as much as the first novel in this series. ...

    This one was just as good as the previous book. In fact I found it to be better. She left us hanging so I look forward to reading #3 in the series next year! :) ...

    It took me a bit to get back into the rhythm of Bianca?s life. Once I did, it was an exciting adventure. I hope the next installment wraps up this story line. She deserves a rest. ...

    Second book in the Guardian Series and most likely my last. Story is okay but don't like the writing and things that are obvious are explained making the book feel stilted. The explanations make everything tedious. The author's voice is always present and because of this I can't involv...

    Robards is having fun with The Guardian series featuring super-human Bianca St. Ives. The sole survivor of a Government-led genetic experiment, she was raised by her ?father? Mason to become a human weapon in his high-stakes, high-risk heists. Needless to say, he is not really her ...

    Compared to the ultimatum i.e book 1 , i found this to be a very poor sequel. Of course i read both books back to back. Just finished the ultimatum. Found it simply fantastic and just couldn't wait for the story to continue. Hence i picked up The Moscow Deception the very next day. Oh...

    Robards does it again. like all her books I read it thru in one sitting. No give away synopsis - just read and enjoy. ...

    Not quite as good as book one, but still very enjoyable, fast-paced, assassins and heists book. I especially enjoyed Bianca's brief encounters with Colin AKA Mickey. ...

    So good! I don't want to wait for the next one. ...

    Great book. If book three isn?t written yet, please count me on the ?please make book 3 a romance? camp. I want the payoff to this 2 book tease. ...

    Sadly, Not the Robards Book I?ve Looked Forward to.... This book series is probably interesting and intriguing to some new Robards fans. But, for her long time faithful devotees, this is not the Robards book I look forward to and I suspect you look forward to, for a year! Typicall...

    I received this book as a giveaway from Goodreads. I could not put this book down towards the end. I cannot wait for the next installment in The Guardian series. ...

    Bianca St. Ives is literally one of a kind, thanks to the genetic experiments that led to her birth. In The Moscow Deception all of her skills, training and natural talent will be put to the test. With a $1 million price tag on her head, Bianca is going to have to take the offensive if...

    2.5 at best. I just couldn't really get into this one. Maybe it's me, but all of the descriptions of clothing, etc. left me bored to death. It just seemed to contain so many fillers that the book left me wanting it to end, and soon; however, it just seemed to drag on and on and I wonde...

    The Moscow Deception from Karen Robards is an excellent high tension suspense/thriller. Based on some of what I have read and heard, many readers wanted a romance with some adventure thrown in, apparently that is what Robards has often written in the past. The thing is, the low ratings...

    I tip my pen (as I don't typically wear a hat) to this author for her exceptional storytelling. And I can only imagine the amount of research she had to do in order to tell us this story with such incredible detail. I would never want to give anything away so I'll be as vague as po...

    Annnnnnnnnnnd .......... I truly regret I was unable to attend your luncheon in Greenville, SC! I WOULD HAVE ADORED meeting one of my favorite authors, for years! However, having just finished, "The Moscow Deception", now I want to truly cry! The first Biana book made me nuts...

    Although The Moscow Deception, a second instance in the Guardian Series, has 'a novel' on the front cover, I would prefer thriller as a genre identifier. I didn't read the first book but found no impediments to join Bianca St. Ives, a smart tech-savvy top-notch criminal, that goes by ...

    Love this book This is now my favorite series. I am so sad I have to wait a year for the next book. Bianca is a 26 year old business woman. She owns her own successful security firm. This is her day job. On the sly she is an international con artist and thief trained all her life by...

    Bianca is very young, attractive and a thief. A very capable spy and master of the martial arts and how to handle weapons she is not an easy target but that is what she has become. The final nail in her coffin was when a murder alert was put out on her with a million dollar bounty. She...

    Bianca St. Ives is a master criminal that has taken over her father?s business. But it seems someone has put a contract out on her. Bianca must race against time to pull off a serious heist to get some leverage to save herself. But when she seems to finally get close to pulling this ...

    This book is the second of what is developing into an excellent suspense series. I say suspense because the romance elements are definitely on the slow burn. Bianca St. Ives has survived the attempt by the CIA to capture her. But there is a million dollar bounty on her head. It is only...

    Robards is having fun with The Guardian series featuring super-human Bianca St. Ives. The sole survivor of a Government-led genetic experiment, she was raised by her ?father? Mason to become a human weapon in his high-stakes, high-risk heists. Needless to say, he is not really her ...

    Compared to the ultimatum i.e book 1 , i found this to be a very poor sequel. Of course i read both books back to back. Just finished the ultimatum. Found it simply fantastic and just couldn't wait for the story to continue. Hence i picked up The Moscow Deception the very next day. Oh...

    Robards does it again. like all her books I read it thru in one sitting. No give away synopsis - just read and enjoy. ...

    Not quite as good as book one, but still very enjoyable, fast-paced, assassins and heists book. I especially enjoyed Bianca's brief encounters with Colin AKA Mickey. ...

    So good! I don't want to wait for the next one. ...

    Great book. If book three isn?t written yet, please count me on the ?please make book 3 a romance? camp. I want the payoff to this 2 book tease. ...

    Sadly, Not the Robards Book I?ve Looked Forward to.... This book series is probably interesting and intriguing to some new Robards fans. But, for her long time faithful devotees, this is not the Robards book I look forward to and I suspect you look forward to, for a year! Typicall...

    Bianca St. Ives is literally one of a kind, thanks to the genetic experiments that led to her birth. In The Moscow Deception all of her skills, training and natural talent will be put to the test. With a $1 million price tag on her head, Bianca is going to have to take the offensive if...

    2.5 at best. I just couldn't really get into this one. Maybe it's me, but all of the descriptions of clothing, etc. left me bored to death. It just seemed to contain so many fillers that the book left me wanting it to end, and soon; however, it just seemed to drag on and on and I wonde...

    The Moscow Deception from Karen Robards is an excellent high tension suspense/thriller. Based on some of what I have read and heard, many readers wanted a romance with some adventure thrown in, apparently that is what Robards has often written in the past. The thing is, the low ratings...

    I tip my pen (as I don't typically wear a hat) to this author for her exceptional storytelling. And I can only imagine the amount of research she had to do in order to tell us this story with such incredible detail. I would never want to give anything away so I'll be as vague as po...

    Although The Moscow Deception, a second instance in the Guardian Series, has 'a novel' on the front cover, I would prefer thriller as a genre identifier. I didn't read the first book but found no impediments to join Bianca St. Ives, a smart tech-savvy top-notch criminal, that goes by ...

    Love this book This is now my favorite series. I am so sad I have to wait a year for the next book. Bianca is a 26 year old business woman. She owns her own successful security firm. This is her day job. On the sly she is an international con artist and thief trained all her life by...

    Bianca is very young, attractive and a thief. A very capable spy and master of the martial arts and how to handle weapons she is not an easy target but that is what she has become. The final nail in her coffin was when a murder alert was put out on her with a million dollar bounty. She...

    Bianca St. Ives is a master criminal that has taken over her father?s business. But it seems someone has put a contract out on her. Bianca must race against time to pull off a serious heist to get some leverage to save herself. But when she seems to finally get close to pulling this ...

    2.5 stars rounded up but almost rounded down as it hard to call one heist, three escapes and a cliffhanger ending a story - little lone a book. Not much more happened in this one than the first book. The characters are still undeveloped, the plot is MIA and there is a whole lotta fluff...

    Annnnnnnnnnnd .......... I truly regret I was unable to attend your luncheon in Greenville, SC! I WOULD HAVE ADORED meeting one of my favorite authors, for years! However, having just finished, "The Moscow Deception", now I want to truly cry! The first Biana book made me nuts...

    Although The Moscow Deception, a second instance in the Guardian Series, has 'a novel' on the front cover, I would prefer thriller as a genre identifier. I didn't read the first book but found no impediments to join Bianca St. Ives, a smart tech-savvy top-notch criminal, that goes by ...

    Love this book This is now my favorite series. I am so sad I have to wait a year for the next book. Bianca is a 26 year old business woman. She owns her own successful security firm. This is her day job. On the sly she is an international con artist and thief trained all her life by...

    Bianca is very young, attractive and a thief. A very capable spy and master of the martial arts and how to handle weapons she is not an easy target but that is what she has become. The final nail in her coffin was when a murder alert was put out on her with a million dollar bounty. She...

    Bianca St. Ives is a master criminal that has taken over her father?s business. But it seems someone has put a contract out on her. Bianca must race against time to pull off a serious heist to get some leverage to save herself. But when she seems to finally get close to pulling this ...

    This book is the second of what is developing into an excellent suspense series. I say suspense because the romance elements are definitely on the slow burn. Bianca St. Ives has survived the attempt by the CIA to capture her. But there is a million dollar bounty on her head. It is only...

    Bianca StIves has a price on her head. An organization on the dark web has put a huge bounty on her. Bianca has to find a way to kill whoever put the contract out or she won?t live very long. Bianca ends up teaming up with a man she thought was her Father to commit an incredibly dang...

    I read through this book in less than 24 hours. I finished in a hotel room and almost threw it across the room when I reached the end....but it was so abrupt! I sincerely hope there are more books in the series so that I can have some closure. Bianca is the central character again in t...

    Bianca St. Ives makes her living as a high-end thief and a genius of disguise, conning criminals out of the money they stole - and all for the greater good. A femme fatale Robin Hood, she's learnt everything she knows from her father. Now that she's taken over running the family busine...

    I usually like this author and find her books well written. I enjoyed the first book in this series, The Ultimate, a tight well written, rich mystery-thriller. This one not so much, but did read it through to the end, it was definitely action packed with our heroine, Bianca St. Ives, g...

    absolutely fan-freaking-tastic!!!!!!!! what a creative and suspense filled, well written journey...can't wait for book 3! ...

    Not having read the first book in this series, I had some difficulty with getting used to the style. The book starts with a very well written chapter in which we, besides the action, learn who Bianca is and what has happened in her (recent) past. The story goes on with telling us more ...

    2.5 stars rounded up but almost rounded down as it hard to call one heist, three escapes and a cliffhanger ending a story - little lone a book. Not much more happened in this one than the first book. The characters are still undeveloped, the plot is MIA and there is a whole lotta fluff...

    I read The Ultimatum and really enjoyed that. However I missed The Fifth Doctrine. I must say that The Moscow Deception I enjoyed as much as the first novel in this series. ...

    This one was just as good as the previous book. In fact I found it to be better. She left us hanging so I look forward to reading #3 in the series next year! :) ...

    It took me a bit to get back into the rhythm of Bianca?s life. Once I did, it was an exciting adventure. I hope the next installment wraps up this story line. She deserves a rest. ...

    Second book in the Guardian Series and most likely my last. Story is okay but don't like the writing and things that are obvious are explained making the book feel stilted. The explanations make everything tedious. The author's voice is always present and because of this I can't involv...

    Robards is having fun with The Guardian series featuring super-human Bianca St. Ives. The sole survivor of a Government-led genetic experiment, she was raised by her ?father? Mason to become a human weapon in his high-stakes, high-risk heists. Needless to say, he is not really her ...

    Compared to the ultimatum i.e book 1 , i found this to be a very poor sequel. Of course i read both books back to back. Just finished the ultimatum. Found it simply fantastic and just couldn't wait for the story to continue. Hence i picked up The Moscow Deception the very next day. Oh...

    Robards does it again. like all her books I read it thru in one sitting. No give away synopsis - just read and enjoy. ...

    Not quite as good as book one, but still very enjoyable, fast-paced, assassins and heists book. I especially enjoyed Bianca's brief encounters with Colin AKA Mickey. ...

    So good! I don't want to wait for the next one. ...

    Great book. If book three isn?t written yet, please count me on the ?please make book 3 a romance? camp. I want the payoff to this 2 book tease. ...

    Sadly, Not the Robards Book I?ve Looked Forward to.... This book series is probably interesting and intriguing to some new Robards fans. But, for her long time faithful devotees, this is not the Robards book I look forward to and I suspect you look forward to, for a year! Typicall...

    I received this book as a giveaway from Goodreads. I could not put this book down towards the end. I cannot wait for the next installment in The Guardian series. ...

    Bianca St. Ives is literally one of a kind, thanks to the genetic experiments that led to her birth. In The Moscow Deception all of her skills, training and natural talent will be put to the test. With a $1 million price tag on her head, Bianca is going to have to take the offensive if...

    2.5 at best. I just couldn't really get into this one. Maybe it's me, but all of the descriptions of clothing, etc. left me bored to death. It just seemed to contain so many fillers that the book left me wanting it to end, and soon; however, it just seemed to drag on and on and I wonde...

    This book is the second of what is developing into an excellent suspense series. I say suspense because the romance elements are definitely on the slow burn. Bianca St. Ives has survived the attempt by the CIA to capture her. But there is a million dollar bounty on her head. It is only...

    Bianca StIves has a price on her head. An organization on the dark web has put a huge bounty on her. Bianca has to find a way to kill whoever put the contract out or she won?t live very long. Bianca ends up teaming up with a man she thought was her Father to commit an incredibly dang...

    I read through this book in less than 24 hours. I finished in a hotel room and almost threw it across the room when I reached the end....but it was so abrupt! I sincerely hope there are more books in the series so that I can have some closure. Bianca is the central character again in t...

    Bianca St. Ives makes her living as a high-end thief and a genius of disguise, conning criminals out of the money they stole - and all for the greater good. A femme fatale Robin Hood, she's learnt everything she knows from her father. Now that she's taken over running the family busine...

    I usually like this author and find her books well written. I enjoyed the first book in this series, The Ultimate, a tight well written, rich mystery-thriller. This one not so much, but did read it through to the end, it was definitely action packed with our heroine, Bianca St. Ives, g...

    I never heard of Karen Robards before seeing this book on Goodreads,but the brief description made me enter the giveaway contest. as luck would have it I won a copy and started reading it . I found myself reading it every chance I got, even if was for just a few minutes. I like her sty...

    absolutely fan-freaking-tastic!!!!!!!! what a creative and suspense filled, well written journey...can't wait for book 3! ...

    Not having read the first book in this series, I had some difficulty with getting used to the style. The book starts with a very well written chapter in which we, besides the action, learn who Bianca is and what has happened in her (recent) past. The story goes on with telling us more ...

    2.5 stars rounded up but almost rounded down as it hard to call one heist, three escapes and a cliffhanger ending a story - little lone a book. Not much more happened in this one than the first book. The characters are still undeveloped, the plot is MIA and there is a whole lotta fluff...

    I read The Ultimatum and really enjoyed that. However I missed The Fifth Doctrine. I must say that The Moscow Deception I enjoyed as much as the first novel in this series. ...

    This one was just as good as the previous book. In fact I found it to be better. She left us hanging so I look forward to reading #3 in the series next year! :) ...

    It took me a bit to get back into the rhythm of Bianca?s life. Once I did, it was an exciting adventure. I hope the next installment wraps up this story line. She deserves a rest. ...

    Second book in the Guardian Series and most likely my last. Story is okay but don't like the writing and things that are obvious are explained making the book feel stilted. The explanations make everything tedious. The author's voice is always present and because of this I can't involv...

    Robards is having fun with The Guardian series featuring super-human Bianca St. Ives. The sole survivor of a Government-led genetic experiment, she was raised by her ?father? Mason to become a human weapon in his high-stakes, high-risk heists. Needless to say, he is not really her ...

    Compared to the ultimatum i.e book 1 , i found this to be a very poor sequel. Of course i read both books back to back. Just finished the ultimatum. Found it simply fantastic and just couldn't wait for the story to continue. Hence i picked up The Moscow Deception the very next day. Oh...

    Robards does it again. like all her books I read it thru in one sitting. No give away synopsis - just read and enjoy. ...

    Not quite as good as book one, but still very enjoyable, fast-paced, assassins and heists book. I especially enjoyed Bianca's brief encounters with Colin AKA Mickey. ...

    So good! I don't want to wait for the next one. ...

    Great book. If book three isn?t written yet, please count me on the ?please make book 3 a romance? camp. I want the payoff to this 2 book tease. ...

    Sadly, Not the Robards Book I?ve Looked Forward to.... This book series is probably interesting and intriguing to some new Robards fans. But, for her long time faithful devotees, this is not the Robards book I look forward to and I suspect you look forward to, for a year! Typicall...

    I received this book as a giveaway from Goodreads. I could not put this book down towards the end. I cannot wait for the next installment in The Guardian series. ...

    Bianca St. Ives is literally one of a kind, thanks to the genetic experiments that led to her birth. In The Moscow Deception all of her skills, training and natural talent will be put to the test. With a $1 million price tag on her head, Bianca is going to have to take the offensive if...

    2.5 at best. I just couldn't really get into this one. Maybe it's me, but all of the descriptions of clothing, etc. left me bored to death. It just seemed to contain so many fillers that the book left me wanting it to end, and soon; however, it just seemed to drag on and on and I wonde...

    The Moscow Deception from Karen Robards is an excellent high tension suspense/thriller. Based on some of what I have read and heard, many readers wanted a romance with some adventure thrown in, apparently that is what Robards has often written in the past. The thing is, the low ratings...

    I tip my pen (as I don't typically wear a hat) to this author for her exceptional storytelling. And I can only imagine the amount of research she had to do in order to tell us this story with such incredible detail. I would never want to give anything away so I'll be as vague as po...

    Annnnnnnnnnnd .......... I truly regret I was unable to attend your luncheon in Greenville, SC! I WOULD HAVE ADORED meeting one of my favorite authors, for years! However, having just finished, "The Moscow Deception", now I want to truly cry! The first Biana book made me nuts...
