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?

Fatal Truth by Misty Evans is the smokin’ hot first book in her new Shadow Force International series, and she knocks it out of the park with this one. Savanna Bunkett is in danger from the most powerful man in the world – the President of the United States. Her sister, Parker, is missing. And things are not always what they seem…. Trace Hunter, or Coldplay, is a bodyguard, though he has his own secrets. He is tasked with protecting Savanna and trying to find her sister. However, he and Savanna have their own secret connection which complicates things. Fatal Truth was so good. SO good. It has everything ~ spies, assassins, danger, action, and hot smexy tension. I loved every minute of this book. There were some parts that were so angsty I wasn’t sure I could take it but I had to keep reading. I spent a couple of nights up too late because I really wanted to finish Fatal Truth by Misty Evans. It’s always the sign of a good book when a mom is willing to sacrifice sleep. If you love pulse-pounding action and romance that ignites your e-reader, then you need to pick up Fatal Truth by Misty Evans. It’ll warm up even the coldest of winter days! I absolutely can’t wait until the next book is out!

Another fabulous romantic suspense from Misty Evans! Fast moving and entertaining, with just enough romance and tension thrown in to keep me glued to the pages, Fatal Truth was a great start to a new series. Savannah ended up being an awesome heroine. I was a bit unsure of her at first, but as her character was developed and revealed throughout the book she really had everything I love in my heroines – she was strong, smart, capable, and knew when she needed to ask for help. Yet she also didn’t have a problem standing up for herself or letting her thoughts and opinions be heard – especially when it came to Trace. Trace has learned to keep everything under control, especially his emotions. Unfortunately when it comes to Savannah she always seems to get him a little bit crazy. And even though I was a bit frustrated that he didn’t man up and let Savannah know who he was, knowing his past made me a little more forgiving towards him. Together these two had some serious tension going on. And let’s just say at one point the term “hot yoga” had more to do with the heat between these two than the yoga challenge that they had going on. I loved the secondary characters in the book and each and every one of them added something to the story. I really loved seeing Cal, Beatrice, and Emit again – Beatrice was one of my favorite characters from the SCVC series and I love that I’ll get to see a bit more of her in this new spin-off series. If you’re looking for a great romantic suspense then look no further. Fatal Truth offers up a large dose of conspiracy, intrigue, and action, with a nice side of romance and shouldn’t be missed. I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

This is the first book in the new Shadow Force International series by Misty Evans. I loved this book and read it in one day. The characters are very well developed and settings well described and the story line believable. Savannah is an investigative reporter that doesn't back down for anyone not even the president. This time Savannah needs help though because her sister Parker who works for the president has gone missing and with the president threatening her she decides to follow a lead to Rock Star Security where she ends up hiring them for protection and that comes with a body guard named Coldplay. Savannah once did a piece on a Navy Seal named Trace Hunter which ended up being used to send Trace to prison. Trace was recently helped to escape prison and was hired by Rock Star Security with the hope that they can help him clear his name. Rock Star Security hires former Navy Seals and other special forces veterans, and they knew that the charges brought against Trace were false. Trace has a new name "Coldplay" and now he has been assigned to help Savannah, the very woman who ended his career and was the reason he was thrown in to prison. Trace has his secrets just as Savannah has hers. Will their secrets destroy them or save them? This one will keep you on the edge with all of the twists and turns. I loved the chemistry between Trace and Savannah. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I was given an advanced readers copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I am a big fan of romantic suspense novels, therefore, I was excited when Misty Evans not only had a new release, but was launching a new series. Ms. Evans is one of my favorite authors because she consistently weaves a story that has strong characters, a strong and believable plot with plenty of twists and turns, and action thrown in with a little romance. I was hooked from the very beginning when the former Navy SEAL was secretly released from prison and thrust into the role of bodyguard for the very woman who put him in jail. The story flowed so well that I was glued to it from the first page to the very end because I had to find out what was going to happen next. Fatal Truth is the first book in Misty Evans’ new Shadow Force International Series and I can’t wait for the next one. Don’t miss out on this new series, and when you finish this book, check out Ms. Evans’ other novels. *** I received an advanced copy in exchange for a review that is my own***

Fatal Truth is the first in an exciting new series. Action, adventure and romance all in equal measure Fatal Truth mixes just enough reality into the story to make it believable. The characters are strong and likeable. The bad guys make you want to scream and shout. Fatal Truth is a well written, fast paced romantic suspense that will keep you up past your bedtime. I can’t wait for the next adventure.

Savanna is a well known journalist who specializes in exposing government cover-ups. She won't stop even when she's threatened by the President of the United States. She needs protection. She goes to Shadow Force International for help. They are the best and they have a plan. They break Navy Seal Trace Hunter out of solitary and make him Savanna's bodyguard. He hides his identity. After all she incorrectly exposed him as a traitor. He was set up by the President and she reported the story. Can he save her and find her sister? I liked Savanna. She is intelligent and fearless. She will go to any length to find the truth even though assassins are stalking her. She won't be blackmailed and she'll admit her mistakes. Travis aka Coldplay will protect her with his life. He's attracted to her but he's afraid to reveal his past. His conflicting emotions make for powerful reading. I could put down this book. The storyline is a potent mix of passion and political intrigue. Misty Evans dis a wonderful job. She left me wanting more. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

Fatal Truth is the first book in the spin-off series to Ms. Evans' Deadly SCVC Taskforce series, and it's a doozy! Savanna and Trace share a common enemy--and unfortunately for them, it just happens to be a guy with seemingly unlimited resources--the most powerful man in the world, the president of the United States. I loved watching Savanna and Trace grow closer (totally against Trace's will--the poor guy was so determined to hate her for being the reason he'd been languishing in prison yet was totallt committed to fulfilling his duties to Rock Star Security, which meant keeping Van safe) all the while they were desperately trying to find Van's sister and find a way to bring the president down. Ms. Evans kept the tension taut throughout the book; the parts where Van and Trace just missed connecting with Van's sister Parker were particularly stressful! Throughout the book I was anxious for Trace to finally come clean and reveal to Van who he really was, but at the same time I totally understood why he was so hesitant to. Naturally you know it's all going to bite him in the butt at some point, and you're just keeping your fingers crossed that he'll be able to emerge from the fallout on the other side and somehow convince Van to not hate him forever. (Warning: when he finally does manage to work up to an apology, it's a doozy! ;) ) It was darn near impossibly to put down Fatal Truth once the story really got started. I can't wait to read more from this series--bring it on, Ms. Evans! :) Rating: 4 stars / A- I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Phenomenal! The book had me hooked right from the start. I kind of figured things were going to be interesting when right at the beginning, there was a formal Navy SEAL being secretly escorted out of prison in just his underwear. It was very cool to see Trace have to protect the woman that put him in jail. The secrets in this story were amazing, and wouldn't let me walk away. I really felt like I would miss something important if I didn't keep reading. When I did finish it, the thrilling plot, mystery, and action left me reeling. I loved it! If you are looking for a great suspense with strong emotions and non-stop excitement, step into the world of the Shadow Force International. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Trace was falsely accused of treason and thrown into prison. All because he wouldn't obey a direct order from the President. Savanna, a crusading reporter, is the person who broke the story from a file she was given by her sister, Parker. Now Trace has escaped from prison, Parker is missing and Savanna is in big trouble. She is going to bring out the truth of one of the president's buddies and the president is going to stop her, no matter what he has to do. Trace is now Savanna's bodyguard and she doesn't know his true name. How will she react when she finds out who Trace really is and will he still be able to protect her from the president? Trace also has information that can put the president in prison, but can he use it without getting people killed?

Misty Evans and Adrienne Digordano have a new outstanding collaboration with the Shadow Force International series. Behind the walls of Rock Star Security Services Emit Petit has developed SFI to help people who have no where else to turn. In the first book of the series, Fatal Truth, Trace Hunter has been imprisoned for 18 months falsely accused of treason by the one man from whom he can not protect himself, the President of the United States. When he is released from prison without the knowledge of the justice system his choice is to work for Petit or manage on his own with no money, no other resources and a price on his head. The elements of this complex tale will have you at the edge of your seat and, although sex is not a major part of the action, the zing and sizzle between Trace and his first client heat up the pages as much as the action around them. These two authors know how to write a steamy suspense novel and make us fall in love with the main characters. They also do an outstanding job in creating secondary characters that we can relate to or hate. I receive a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Fatal Truth is an outstanding book in a great new series!

Fatal Truth by Misty Evans is a great beginning to a new series. It has action, danger, intrigue at the highest government levels and romance. Savannah is a smart and strong woman who is not afraid to report the truth. Trace is a broken Alpha that has finally got a chance for redemption, even if it means risking his life. These two characters were so complex and yet likeable. I loved Savannah's sister, Parker. She was a kickass spy that was doing everything in her power to protect those that she loved. I sure hope we get to see more of her in the series. If you love reading romantic suspense, please give this book a try. You won't be disappointed.
