About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Under Fire (Defend and Protect, #3) by Lynn H. Blackburn

Under Fire (Defend and Protect, #3)

USSS Special Agent Zane Thacker has landed his dream assignment protecting the president of the United States. When the president plans a fundraiser at the exclusive estate of a political supporter in Raleigh, Zane is thrilled to be working again with Special Agent Tessa Reed, his best friend--and the woman he desperately wishes could be more.

Though Tessa almost lost everything, she battled her demons and came out on the other side healthy and healed. But when her role as the liaison between the Raleigh office and the president's protective detail wrenches her past back into the present, her greatest failure threatens to come to light.

Zane refuses to let Tessa go through this alone. But can he stand by the woman he loves and protect the president from a mounting threat at the same time?

Sparks fly as award-winning romantic suspense writer Lynn H. Blackburn closes out her Defend and Protect series with this explosive tale of secrets kept, lies exposed, and relationships restored.


Zane and Tessa. Just saying their names together makes me happy because they've become one of my favorite couples! I loved their deep connection but there were so many obstacles that threatened it before it could progress further. We've met them before in this Defend and Protect series, but this book allows us to truly witness them as more than co-workers and friends! Tessa Reed's alcoholism and her efforts to overcome it are powerful reminders of the devastating effects of addiction and Zane Thacker's friendship and support are what all of us would wish for. But there's more! The President of the United States needs protection and Tessa and Zane are there to protect. What happens when the protectors become targets?

Author Lynn H. Blackburn excels in writing exciting stories with relatable characters and Under Fire may be her best yet! Danger, suspense, and the balance between work and personal relationships have been the basis of this entire series but Zane and Tessa add a captivating dynamic! I highly recommend Under Fire to all who enjoy romantic Christian suspense. Well done, Ms. Blackburn!

I received an ARC from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
