Unknown Threat by Lynn H Blackburn

Defend and Protect #1
Romantic Suspense

US Secret Service Special Agent Luke Powell is lucky to be alive. Three of his fellow agents have died in unusual circumstances in the past ten weeks. Luke is devastated by the loss of his friends and colleagues, and his inability to locate the killer feels like a personal failure. He and his team are experts at shielding others, but now the protectors are in need of protection.

FBI Special Agent Faith Malone is driven to succeed and confident in her ability to solve every case she's assigned. She's been put in charge of the investigation into the unprecedented attacks, and with Luke's life in danger, the stakes have never been higher. But it's hard to know how to fight back when you don't know who the enemy is.

Luke has teamed up with Faith before, but he's not convinced she's up for the job and she's not convinced he's telling her everything he knows. As more agents are targeted, Luke and Faith will have to learn to trust each other and work together to bring a killer to justice and prevent any more names from joining their fallen brothers and sisters on the Secret Service Wall of Honor.

My Thoughts

Lynn Blackburn's new series Defend and Protect has an explosive new start with Unknown Threat. Secret Service agents are being attacked and killed from an unknown assailant. Since they don't investigate their own the FBI is brought in. These two agencies do not always play nice together.

Luke Powell is with the Secret Service and Faith Malone is with the FBI. They both have their own issues that complicate working together but there is a definite draw to the other. As the danger heats up so does their personal relationship.

Lynn Blackburn's ability to paint a moving picture through words is on full display in this story. You can smell the explosives, feel the tension rising, taste the Cherry Coke, and hear the whisper of footsteps by an intruder. She has given us an interesting variety of characters that I personally look forward to reading more about in the coming books. She has done a masterful job of portraying our defenders. Her in-depth research into these fields makes the story believable and allows the reader to become totally engrossed in the tale.

If you are a fan of crime dramas I think you will enjoy this novel and series. At the end of this book there is a sneak peek of book two and it has me eagerly anticipating it's release. I highly recommend you check this book out.
