She needs his protection…
Thanks to years of government training, Evie Bishop knows how to get into places she doesn’t belong—and she’s very good at it. But years of doing black ops work burned her out so she returns home—to unexpected chaos. One of her brothers is in a coma and the other is in hiding, wanted for murder. Then a fellow operative from her past shows up shot and bleeding with news that an assassin is gunning for everyone involved with a past op. She’s forced to turn to the one man she knows she can trust—the man whose heart she broke.
But it will come with a price…
When Dylan Blackwood proposed a year ago, Evie turned him down flat and walked out of his life. He’s stunned when he finds her on his doorstep covered in someone else’s blood, needing his help. He always knew there was more to her than met the eye—that Evie was never simply the pampered society princess she wanted people to believe she was. But he never expected this. If she needs help, he’ll give it. Even if he can’t forget her betrayal. Even if he isn’t sure he can trust her. But his protection will come with a price—her heart. Before they can have a chance at a future, they’ll have to work together to take down a faceless enemy who has Evie firmly in his crosshairs.

The past doesn’t always stay where it belongs – in the past. Evie learned that firsthand when an old friend who had worked on a CIA op with her shows up at her door shot, and with a dire message. Thus begins BISHOP’S KNIGHT and it does not slow down from this moment onward in one fashion or another.
Most of what you need to know is in the Cover Description. What you don’t yet know is that your heart will be pounding throughout Dylan’s and Evie’s story. Second chances don’t come along every day but this one Dylan is going to grab for several reasons. Foremost he wants answers. Then he’ll decide if he can ever trust this woman he once gave his heart to again. Evie has so much on her plate between the current danger, her brothers troubles and knowing that if she is to have the slightest second chance with Dylan she’ll have to tell him the truth – the entire truth, and that scares her senseless.
BISHOP’S KNIGHT is fast-paced, dangerous, intriguing and intense in so many ways. It also sets up the continuation of the trilogy with an ending that will slide right into the next story. No cliffhanger, just knowing that you’ll find even more answers and maybe questions in BISHOP’S QUEEN is enough to keep an eye out for that release in the Fall.
I had an intense, enjoyable time with this story. It kept my attention, gave me interesting characters (and some old friends), and produced a story that captures the imagination to the point of needing more — which is the rest of the trilogy. If you love Romantic Suspense, then this one is for you.
