Healing Danger (Fortis Security Book 1) by Maddie Wade
Dealing with the horrific murder of her best friend is more than enough for school teacher Lauren Cassidy, but now a madman has decided that she needs to die for her part in that death. With her life in danger and her past catching up to her, will she stay alive long enough to trust the one man she never forgot with her heart?
With the promise to catch a killer and keep Lauren safe, Dane Bennet must now protect her from the evil in her past and present. A sick cult group with ties to the government and the rich and powerful are determined to use her powers for their own evil gain. Will Dane be able to protect the woman he loves or will he have his chance at happiness snatched away. Dane must use every ounce of his elite special forces training to keep her safe, even if it means breaking her heart.
Determined to stop the evil that threatens the world and avenge the death of a friend, will Lauren and Dane be able to overcome their intense attraction to stop the people determined to end her life and start Armageddon or will their passion blind them.
This story had everything, romance, murder and mayhem. There was a lot going on but I loved it and I thought it worked really well, it all fit together well around Lauren and Dane's story and was balanced. I liked the paranormal angle and the fact that female characters were strong minded and interesting.
This is the first in the Fortis series and although it can be read as a standalone I was pulled into the Fortis world and clicked buy on the second book before i'd finished reading this one.
This book is currently available for free on amazon, so you have nothing to lose if you give it a try.
