"PERILOUS TRUST is a non-stop thriller that seamlessly melds jaw-dropping suspense with sizzling romance, and I was riveted from the first page to the last." USA Today HEA Blog

It was one dark night that brought Damon Wolfe and Sophie Parker together. They were two tortured souls, looking for escape, and they weren't supposed to see each other ever again…

Four years later, Sophie's FBI father, who is also Damon's mentor, is killed in a suspicious car crash after leaving Sophie a cryptic message to trust no one from the agency. When Damon shows up looking for her, she isn't sure if he's friend or enemy, but she knows he could easily rip apart what is left of her heart.

The last thing Damon wants is to get involved with Sophie again. It was hard enough to walk away the first time. But she's in trouble, her father's reputation is under attack, and the lives of his fellow agents are at stake if there's a traitor in their midst. 

When someone starts shooting at them, they have no choice but to go on the run and off the grid. Everyone in their world becomes a suspect. They want to uncover the truth, but will it turn out to be the last thing they expect? Proving her father's innocence might just cost them their hearts…and their lives…

  • Disappointed

    By AMOPA333
    I was pretty excited for this series and it had a great start so that was intriguing. However, there seemed to be a lot of emotion missing or forced. Wanted to get into this series but if all the characters are as meh as these two (particularly Sophie), I’ll have to pass.

  • My thoughts

    By Raez000
    This is an awesome book to read… I hope the next series is as good
  • Boring and Predictable

    By jannaolivia
    I skipped a lot because it was boring and way too predictable. I found the chemistry lacking and so stupid that Sophie decided she loved Damon despite only meeting him once four years earlier and not seeing him again until this whole mess started. This book turns me off the author. It was not good. I definitely won’t continue reading this series.
