New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker continues her red-hot Black Knights Inc. series in rough-and-tumble Peru

“The Man” is back
Dan “The Man” Currington is back in fighting form with a mission that takes him four thousand miles south of BKI headquarters, high in the Andes Mountains of Peru. He’s hot on the trail of a rogue CIA agent selling classified government secrets to the highest bidder, when Penni DePaul arrives on the scene. Suddenly the stakes are higher, and keeping Penni safe becomes Dan’s number one priority.

And this time she’s ready
A lot has changed since former Secret Service Agent Penni DePaul last saw Dan. Now a civilian, she’s excited about what the future might hold. But before she can grab onto that future with both hands, she has to tie up some loose ends-namely, Dan Currington, the man she just can’t forget. And a secret that’s going to change both their lives-if they can stay alive, that is.



5 Stars


Penni is one kickass woman. Smart, can take care of herself and will to do what it takes. The chemistry she felt with Dan has kept her wake more than a night or two. Flying around the world and standing side by side in gunfights show just how brave, loyal and a bit crazy this woman is.

Dan has seen the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. A complex character who can break your heart one moment and have you in a puddle the next.  Being widowed took Dan “The Man” on a downward spiral to the bottom of a bottle.  Through the help of his brothers, friends and some chemistry on an explosive mission, The Man begins see life again.  All Alpha and sexy to the bone, a second chance at love awaken Dan from the darkness.

Intricate weaving of danger, romance and suspense to a level that has the reader hanging on every word.  My introduction to Ms. Walker’s Black Knights Series, Too Hard Too Handle left a very lasting impression.  Yes, I know I started this series way in, however I was able to understand in this ongoing story around Dan and Penni.  Emotional and sexual tension keep the reader’s heart racing as much as the action and danger on the pages.  Julie Ann Walker drew me into her world of Badass secret agent bikers with one book!  Now it’s time to go back to the beginning of the Black Knight series and get lost in this dangers world.
