About the Story:
**First in a thrilling, new romantic suspense series by USA TODAY bestselling author Misty Evans!

**Other books in the series include FATAL HONOR and FATAL COURAGE.

She’s an investigative reporter who lives to uncover the truth. Feisty television host Savanna Bunkett exposes government cover-ups on her award-winning show, The Bunk Stops Here. When she digs into a rumor about a top-secret government project that’s producing “super soldiers” for the president, she suddenly finds herself on an assassin’s hit list. He’s the man who knows the truth.

Navy SEAL Lieutenant Trace Hunter is the only soldier to survive Project 24. After refusing a direct order from the president, he was branded a traitor, and his career imploded after the sexy reporter turned him into a national headline. He now works undercover for Shadow Force International, a secret group of former SEALs helping those who have nowhere else to turn, using his enhanced skills to fight for justice and protect the innocent. His first assignment? Protect Savanna from the one man who wants them both dead—the president. One wrong move and they’ll be silenced forever.

Helping Savanna is the last thing Trace wants to do, but her unwavering determination to expose the president’s dark truth matches his own. She’s his one chance to set the record straight, and he’s her only chance at survival. When their mutual enemy closes in, can they put the past behind them and trust each other? Even if it means losing their hearts in the process? Or will secrets, lies, and forbidden passions cost them everything?

My Thoughts: If you prefer your political intrigues in a good read, don’t pass Misty Evans up!  Fatal Truth is the first, of her many books, I’ve read and she’s completely ensnared me in all the behind-the-scenes forces we all know take place in a political environment.

The danger was palpable, fear was real.  Even though fiction, the author touched upon real-life emotion when people become entrapped in dangerous situations.  They must use their intelligence, skill and luck to extract themselves from deadly situations, or simply fail, possibly losing their life or a loved ones.

Of course, with the hero an ex-SEAL whose past is exemplary, although people in high places tell lies about him, had me cheering from the sidelines for his success, both for clearing his name and with the woman his heart chooses, an equally brave woman. Some very ironic events entangled my mind as well as my heart in this fiercely emotional ride.

Ms. Evans’s characters were brave, determined, and passionate about what they believed in. Her world building will keep me coming back to the well. The read is full of suspense, passion and action-packed in a very believable political story—a real page turner.  Next up is Fatal Honor.
