In this red-hot third installment of the Black Knights Inc. series (Hell on Wheels; In Rides Trouble), Walker pairs former SEAL Jake “The Snake” Sommers and Michelle Knight Carter, who happens to be the sister of Jake’s former commanding officer and the widow of his SEAL teammate Steven “Preacher” Carter. Four years after Preacher’s death, Jake comes to Chicago, where his former CO and surviving teammates have established Black Knights Inc., a covert governmental contracting firm. Michelle’s wary of Jake, who rejected her romantically, and Jake struggles to win back her trust as they learn that a mob boss is hell-bent on destroying the Black Knights and their families. As if that isn’t enough, Michelle has a big secret that will rock not only her family but Jake as well. Walker expertly combines heart-pounding action, touching romance, and sassy humor in an enjoyable roller-coaster ride that will leave fans eagerly waiting for the next episode.
