The Bishop siblings' family is on the verge of collapse as all three find themselves embroiled in danger. Family bonds may keep them alive...but only love can give them something to live for. Read BISHOP'S KNIGHT, the first novel in this ALL NEW heart-pounding Endgame trilogy!

She needs his protection...

Thanks to years of government training, Evie Bishop knows how to get into places she doesn't belong—and she's very good at it. But years of doing black ops work burned her out so she returns home—to unexpected chaos. One of her brothers is in a coma and the other is in hiding, wanted for murder. Then a fellow operative from her past shows up shot and bleeding with news that an assassin is gunning for everyone involved with a past op. She's forced to turn to the one man she knows she can trust—the man whose heart she broke.

But it will come with a price...

When Dylan Blackwood proposed a year ago, Evie turned him down flat and walked out of his life. He's stunned when he finds her on his doorstep covered in someone else's blood, needing his help. He always knew there was more to her than met the eye—that Evie was never simply the pampered society princess she wanted people to believe she was. But he never expected this. If she needs help, he'll give it. Even if he can't forget her betrayal. Even if he isn't sure he can trust her. But his protection will come with a price—her heart. Before they can have a chance at a future, they'll have to work together to take down a faceless enemy who has Evie firmly in his crosshairs.

FIRST IN NEW TRILOGY
Author note: This book can be read as a stand-alone, complete with HEA.

In this new series by Katie Reus, the Bishop siblings are the main characters. Evie Bishop is a spy. Or at least, she was. Right now, she’s retired. But can anyone really retire from being a spy? One of her teammates comes to her late at night and she’s been shot. She tells Evie someone is gunning for them and they need to hide. Evie only knows one person who’s powerful enough to both help and hide them. Dylan Blackwood, her almost fiance.

Dylan has a doctor on retainer who makes house calls and that means Evie will swallow her pride and show up on his doorstep asking for help. But she knows he’ll demand explanations about why her friend’s been shot, and why she took off after he proposed. But how can she tell him that he was an op?

Dylan has never understood why the love of his life ran away after he proposed. To him, their relationship had been wonderful and he couldn’t imagine her saying no. Having her show up on his doorstep several months later is like a dream come true. He’s not letting her get away again. And this time he’s getting her to spill all her secrets.

Finding out she was in the CIA and isn’t just a socialite wasn’t what he expected. But finding out he was an asset? He didn’t know how to feel about it.

Meanwhile, Evie has a brother who’s in hiding since an op went south and he’s being blamed for it, she has a brother who’s in the hospital who was blown up at his office and refuses to see anyone, even his fiancee. MS. Reus has set up a very exciting trilogy for us!

Watching Evie learn to trust Dylan with her secrets, and watching Dylan learn to trust this new Evie was a treat. I really love tropes like this where one character betrayed another and has to work for their relationship.

The Endgame Trilogy is off to a great start and we also see some familiar faces from the Red Stone Security series as cameos. I can’t wait to see which sibling is next and where Ms. Reus takes us from there!
