Reporter Trinity Lockhart pursues a story but then unwittingly becomes the story.
Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, Trinity investigates an art trafficking ring at a high-end Seattle gallery. She turns to handsome FBI agent Kyle Richards for help after being spotted by the crooks.
Kyle is drawn to the feisty reporter, but he can’t afford a beautiful distraction when lives are at stake. He must trust his friends at Protection Inc. to watch over Trinity while he investigates the gallery.
Will this couple overcome the impossible odds threatening to keep them apart?
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

I have been enjoying the Protection Inc. series by Kimberly Rose Johnson. Set in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and filled with action and light suspense (maybe we should coin a new genre – Cozy Suspense!)
Dark Threat reintroduced FBI agent Kyle Reynolds, who assisted the team previously, and introduced Trinity, a criminal investigative reporter. Some interesting behind-the-scenes-type moments shared tidbits about what it would be like to work in either of those professions.
I liked Kyle and Trinity and felt they were well-written. The action was also done well and I could easily picture the events unfolding.
A few things felt unnatural or forced. The faith element was one. There were only a few discussions about Trinity’s hesitations to trust God and the people of the church. Her heart change happened quickly and didn’t feel quite natural.
The motivation of the informant turning on Trinity didn’t make sense to me. Nor was it explained how he or the others who were after her were able to find Trinity – or to know Kyle was with the FBI.
Overall, I enjoyed Dark Threat. Readers who enjoy suspense and faith in their fiction should consider reading this series.
