"PERILOUS TRUST is a non-stop thriller that seamlessly melds jaw-dropping suspense with sizzling romance, and I was riveted from the first page to the last." USA Today HEA Blog
It was one dark night that brought Damon Wolfe and Sophie Parker together. They were two tortured souls, looking for escape, and they weren't supposed to see each other ever again…
Four years later, Sophie's FBI father, who is also Damon's mentor, is killed in a suspicious car crash after leaving Sophie a cryptic message to trust no one from the agency. When Damon shows up looking for her, she isn't sure if he's friend or enemy, but she knows he could easily rip apart what is left of her heart.
The last thing Damon wants is to get involved with Sophie again. It was hard enough to walk away the first time. But she's in trouble, her father's reputation is under attack, and the lives of his fellow agents are at stake if there's a traitor in their midst.
When someone starts shooting at them, they have no choice but to go on the run and off the grid. Everyone in their world becomes a suspect. They want to uncover the truth, but will it turn out to be the last thing they expect? Proving her father's innocence might just cost them their hearts…and their lives…

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The first installment in a planned trilogy, Perilous Trust immediately immerses you into the world of FBI intrigue, where nobody can be trusted outright. Archaeology professor Sophie Parker—the daughter of agent Alan Parker—is thrown into a stressful situation thanks to her father’s final actions. Things get even more complicated after she reencounters Damon Wolfe, an old one-night stand, whom she’ll have to rely on to survive. Barbara Freethy creates great romantic suspense with terse prose, punchy dialogue, and nonstop cat-and-mouse action.
A beautiful story, a page turning story one which captivate you senses and desires. One that will keep you up late just wanting to what is going to happen next. I would definitely recommend this gem to all my friends!! It’s been my pleasure to read it!🥰
Damon and Sophie
Good storyline and great characters. Couldn’t put it down. Nice pace of the story and didn’t get bogged down anywhere! I enjoyed it.
I was pretty excited for this series and it had a great start so that was intriguing. However, there seemed to be a lot of emotion missing or forced. Wanted to get into this series but if all the characters are as meh as these two (particularly Sophie), I’ll have to pass.
