Synopsis and Details:
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.

Review with Rating:
Unknown Threat is the first book in the brand new and exciting series, Defend and Protect! The story starts off with adrenaline and high stakes and only intensifies from there. There are many thrilling moments in this story but what I really enjoyed was the tension between Faith and Luke. They had known each other professionally for some time but Luke had a deep distrust for the FBI and that had always kept a distance between him and Faith. When Faith is tasked with solving the murders of Luke’s teammates, it forces them both to work together and attraction flares between them.
Not only does Unknown Threat bring the heart pumping action but it also has wonderful elements of romance, forgiveness, and belief. Faith is a wonderful character and I loved that her sister was a part of this story because it was great to see someone with a disability represented. I really liked that Faith was a woman who had her own struggles that she was aware of and had to overcome. Luke was a guy who had inner angst and turmoil but who also had all the right elements for a person to swoon over. Overall, Unknown Threat was a nail biter that kept me on the edge of my seat with a story that delivered all the romance and suspense that I crave bundled with some amazing and memorable characters!
