Bodyguard Sally Wilson has become the target. Can she save her own life as well as her daughter’s?
Christmas is supposed to be the happiest time of the year, but when Sally’s young daughter, Emma, becomes the target of child traffickers, and the little girl’s biological father wants Sally dead, the Christmas season takes a dark turn.
Police officer, Dillon Brady, responds to a call for help at the home of his friend and Protection Inc. bodyguard, Sally Wilson. When their relationship tips beyond friendship, Dillon is determined no one will hurt Sally or her daughter again. Will his resolve be enough?
Sally is drawn to Dillon. He’s a natural with Emma and appears to care about both of them. Sally’s been fooled before by a man she believed loved her, but what if it’s an act? Can Sally learn to trust again and follow her heart, or will Dillon get relegated to the friend zone?
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Also in this series: Direct Threat, Imminent Threat, Certain Threat, Dark Threat
Personal Threat is a quick read with all the right elements: danger, romance, and faith. Each aspect combines well with the others and the plot is executed well, with no holes.
I enjoyed seeing more of Sally and Dillon – they were introduced in previous stories in the Protection Inc. series. Their relationship was not forced and the timing of Sally’s change of heart was believable.
While this story deals with human trafficking, it is more of a side element – a motivation – not dealt with in-depth, nor is there heavy suspense related to it. This kept things light and kept the focus on the story, not the ugliness of that crime. For me, that was perfect.
If you enjoy romantic suspense more on the “sweet” side, Personal Threat would be a great story for you.
