In this prequel to In Pursuit of Justice, Michael Lassiter, a theoretical design executive, is about to wage war on the corporate battlefield as she fights to maintain control of her company in the midst of divorce. She hires JT Sloan, an Internet security consultant, to protect her most important asset - her dreams and visions, which are suddenly vulnerable within the corporate computer system. Sloan, a brilliant cybersleuth who steadfastly avoids emotional commitments, shares a painful, secret past with her associate and friend, Jason McBride. Sarah Martin, a gentle practitioner of eastern medicine, searches for a way to heal a damaged soul.
These four very different individuals, each wounded by personal betrayal, find their lives becoming ever more inextricably bound as they struggle to trust, and to love, again.

I have MS and LD and make spelling and grammar mistakes, please forgive the handicap.
Yes, It's an excellent book to read after Shield of Justice. But before the other Justice books Shield first introduces you to Rebecca Frye and Catherine And Watts and Sandy. Now A Matter of Trust introduces you to Sloan and Michael and Jason/Jasmine and Sarah. Then the next Justice book puts them altogether for one explosive novel but I am getting ahead of ahead of myself. A matter of Trust. Is a stand alone story of how J..T. Sloan computer whiz and Michael (a woman) a business genius get together and fall in love to the background of saving her company from a nasty virus and take over attempt from Michael estranged jerk of a husband that she is trying to divorce. The slow love story set again the fast pasted fight to keep her company is awesome and very heart warming but on top of that you have the love story of Jason/Jasmine and Sarah who is a wonderful love story as well and makes you want to know more about the couple even though this is primary a lesbian story their story is so funny an interesting it makes you want more about them. So yes I highly recommend this book to all my friends even a few of my straight friends.
I can't think of many off hand. Maybe a Third Story by Carole Taylor and that isn't even close. Or the more a Different Story but again that isn't right either. And I am mostly thinking about Jason, Anyway as the Love story between Michael and Sloan a lot of Radclyffe books are like it, Also a lot of Geri Hill stories like Highway to Hell or Coyote Sky Or Hunters Way, Stories were the two people just sort of fall in love while working on a joint project. But you could see the sparks fly between them from Hello, Radclyffe's Safe Harbor or when Dreams Tremble are both good examples but that isn't exactly right either, Just shut up read the book, you will love it. Sorry I can't think of a good example.
I loved the way she voiced Sloan and Michael. But her Jason / Jasmine was also awesome and made the story awful fun to listen too. She did a wonderful job with all the different voices it's hard to choose just one. .
God yes But I just don't have that kind of time so I had to just listen to it at night and in the morning. Boy was it a great story to wake up to and to go to bed listening to at night. It relaxed me while giving me a big happy smile at the same time. (Get your mind out of the gutter I said smile and I just meant a happy place) I truly enjoyed this story more than most of my books on Audible
Just give it a chace The computer parts are interesting on there own, the love stories are fantastic and the story is well written. The fact that it's a Radclyffe story is a plus, that it's a prequel to the Justice series is also a plus. And should be read after Shield and before the other Justice books. (Sorry I can't remember which one comes next, I think it's Shadow but I could be wrong, )
This is my favorite couple of the series. I know other fans might disagree, but, I love these 2 characters and their love for one another. I've read all the books a long time ago. But, I love the narration so I'm going to listen to all of them. I do recommend starting at the beginning with this one!
Maybe I was spoiled by Fated Love, Turn Back Time, Passion's Bright Fury, the first half of the Provincetown Tales and nearly every single Honor book---but this drivel is not the Radclyffe I enjoy. I could not get attached or invested in any of the characters. None. I kept waiting to at least like them and care what happened, but it never happened. That is completely un-Radclyffe in my experience. If anything, I read FOR the characters even when the stories are redundant or weak. The characters are always worth the time. Not so here. Save a credit and your time. Skip this title.
And the narrator is my least favorite reader of Rad. She does the Justice series and I cannot make it through the audio versions.
I mostly like to read fiction, series books of my favorite authors! Listening is a great way to read a lot.
I love the dance of romance and sex that goes on between Michael and Sloan! All the characters were sexy, intriguing and genuine...
The Honor series by Radclyffe...
When Michael and Sloan make love for the first time...
Romance is in the air. Michael a straight woman or is she? The tale will be told when she meets sexy computer whiz Sloan! Will Michael stay straight or find her heart in another woman?
I hope the series continues...
Say something about yourself!
I don't mind the main characters to be lesbians or to describe the affair if there is a plot other than the lesbian love story
A mystery book
I thougt it was a mystery book with lesbian main characters and as I'm not a lesbian there was too much erotica between women for me.
"still waiting for it to get vaguely engaging"
I stuck it for an hour and a half. Then I relented and eventually gave up at 3 hours 4mins and 14 secs with 4 hours or so to go. The story had not moved on AT ALL. That 3 hours plus was filled with character introductions - for 3 characters with a few other place holders and narrative movers thrown in. So roughly an hour for each main character - we should know them very well. Not so. All we get is vague generalized comments repeated in a slightly different way with no back history or insight. This is one I am returning.
never read the print version
It comes close to the Honor series but this is only the first book in the series so who knows if it will get better or not. Both series has similar circumstances than bring each women together and in the end the same results
I really liked her voice and her emotions between the two women. Great performance!!!
I was smiling a lot so although there were times when I really felt it for JT fighting her demons and straining to stay away from a woman knows nothing about being with another woman.
i really do love Radclyffe's books, i find all of them to be quite ravishing an exciting.
