Ever since her recovery from a gunshot wound by the same men who murdered her husband, Kate has been on the run for her life. No matter what safe house she has been placed, somehow the killer has managed to find her. Not trusting her protectors, Kate has gone it alone but her pursuers have found her again. If only she knew what they wanted from her. Eight months pregnant, all Kate wants is peace and a safe place to prepare for her baby.

Still grieving the loss of his own wife and unborn child, security expert Jacob Jones cannot ignore Kate when he realizes that she is in danger and needs someone to help her. Even though doing so resurrects unwanted memories, Jacob is determined to win Kate’s trust and make certain she and her baby survive.

Jennifer Pierce is another new author to me so I was unsure what to expect from Expecting Danger. What I found was a fast-paced, suspense-filled tale that kept me scrolling my ereader as fast as I could read. I loved Jacob’s character, an honorable man who could have easily walked away from Kate’s troubles and left her to fend for herself. His faith and integrity shone through and eventually won Kate’s trust and love by the end of the story. The plot was well developed with vivid imagery and strong characterizations. A perfect blend of danger, suspense, romance, and faith, Expecting Danger was a welcome read to fill a few hours of my spare time. I look forward to reading more by this author.

Kate has been on the run from the men who killed her husband and left her for dead–which isn’t easy considering she’s eight months pregnant–but now they’ve found her. Again. Still reeling from her late husband’s betrayal, the last thing Kate wants is the help of a handsome stranger.

Security expert, Jacob Jones, is still grieving the loss of his pregnant wife, and he’s not ready to move on. But when he thwarts an attempted abduction of the beautiful Kate, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to her. Despite her reluctance, he’s determined to do whatever it takes to save her, including giving up his own life.

Kate’s only option is to take a leap of faith and allow Jacob to help her. But can she trust him to keep her and her unborn baby alive? Or will he fail her like everyone else in her life?
