Guest Review from Donna
What I think you should know:
Covert Danger by Jerusha Agen is a Christian Romantic Suspense. It is the second book in the Guardians Unleashed Series, however it is really the third due to a prequel. I would recommend that you read the prior books starting with Rising Danger and it introduces many key members of the series in the Ladies of Phoenix K-9 group. This book focuses on Amalia and her K-9 Raska.
What I think about this book:
After reading the prior books I was excited to drop back in on the ladies of Phoenix K-9. This book did not disappoint as I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I read it. It was nonstop action, but also packed some deep stuff. Amalia has been in hiding so long that it seems she has even forgotten her true self, but God has never forgotten her. I loved the twists and turns in the book. I especially appreciated the reminder that God is not surprised by anything no matter how hard it is or how much it takes us by surprise. I loved this book and can’t wait for more!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Jerusha
Covert Danger was especially fun and challenging to write because it was the first time I’ve written a book with a heroine who is two people. At least, that’s what it seems like when you start to read Covert Danger.
Amalia Pérez is a security specialist at the Phoenix K-9 Security and Detection Agency in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. She has two K-9 partners—Raksa, a German shepherd protection and search and rescue K-9, and Gaston, a Newfoundland water rescue dog.
Amalia doesn’t talk much about her past, even to her fellow co-workers at the Phoenix K-9 Agency. But her past comes crashing into her present in Covert Danger.
First, Michael Barrett shows up as a witness Amalia is assigned to protect. Trouble is, Michael is her former childhood best friend. And he knows she used to be someone else.
When an assassin arrives on the scene, gunning for Michael, another piece of Amalia’s secret past threatens to hijack her present. Because he’s an assassin that eluded her once before, on her last mission as a CIA operative.
So what is an author to do with a heroine who has two identities? A heroine who is determined her old self is gone forever?
Well, this author dug into the truth.
Thanks to years of running and years of deception before that, Amalia is buried in lies. As Michael points out to her, she doesn’t even know what the truth is anymore.
Sound familiar? Our culture is flooded with lies right now. Lies that grow more and more sinister as people abandon reason completely.
Rampant relativism—the “it’s true for me” mentality—has morphed into outright rejection of all real truth. Worse, it’s also turned into drastic efforts to pressure everyone to identify right as wrong and wrong as right.
Calling good evil and evil good is where we’ll all end up if we abandon the truth. Which is one reason why Amalia’s story—a search for truth and right amid deception and evil—is so important.
God taught me more about truth and deception as I took on the challenge of writing Amalia’s and Michael’s story. And He used this story to make my foundation in the truth stronger, strong enough to withstand the onslaught from our culture and from within.
Even as Covert Danger takes you on a thrilling ride of action and romance, I hope this story helps you find and hold onto the truth like never before.
