Unknown Threat by Lynn H. Blackburn {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 





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's an expert 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.


As more agents are targeted, Luke and Faith will have to 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.


Award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn pulls out all the stops in this brand-new romantic suspense series that will have you holding your breath one minute and swooning the next.

What happens when it's those whose job it is to protect are the ones in need of protection? That is just the question in Lynn H. Blackburn's newest novel Unknown Threat in which it members of the secret service including Special Agent Luke Powell are being targeted. Despite his distrust of the FBI, as more agents are targeted he gives into the help of FBI Special Agent Faith Malone. What follows is a high paced suspense with just the right amount of romance mixed in. 

From the start, this book keeps you on the edge of your seat, never quite certain what is going to happen next and when. The action never backed down throughout the story, making it a quick and thrilling read. I enjoyed getting to know Faith and Luke and seeing their romance blossom, but I also enjoyed getting to know the fantastic cast of side characters as well. As the first book in a new series, I felt like it was really set up well to make me want to read more about this group... and I cannot wait. Those who are already fans of Lynn H. Blackburn's will also appreciate the familiar characters that make small appearances as well. 

Overall, this was a fantastic read and one that fans of romantic suspense will certainly want to check out!
