Unknown Threat by Lynn H. Blackburn is the first book in her new Defend and Protect series. This phrase is from the back cover: “…the protectors are in need of protection.” That statement alone had me wanting to read this story – and it was a great read.
The U.S. Secret Service agents of the Raleigh Resident Office are under attack. FBI Special Agent Faith Malone must solve the case before another agent is killed, especially the one particular agent she considers a friend.
Luke Powell is done losing friends, colleagues, fellow men skilled at shielding others. Now he has to battle his prejudice against the FBI in order to work with Agent Malone while trying to stay alive. It doesn’t help that he likes her, too.
Faith and Luke are two strong personalities – and how could they not be in the positions they hold? What I enjoyed about their interaction is how that strength makes the other better, like the Bible verse that talks about iron sharpening iron.
I also enjoyed the pacing of this story. The unfolding of both the identity of the bad guy as well as the romance between Faith and Luke, it all happened naturally, progressively, and amid the dodging of bullets and bombs.
If you’re looking for a romantic suspense with plenty of danger and two great heroes, definitely pick up a copy of Unknown Threat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
