How far would you be willing to go if you were chasing freedom?
When Allie Santiago, international scholar at Oregon State University, and her family are captured and labor trafficked by the same drug cartel that drove her father from Mexico, she learns the cartel thugs plan to sell her to human traffickers. Allie escapes, running a marathon through the mountains of Northern California, and collapses in the arms of Jeff Jacobs, a disgraced Olympic decathlete who wants to regain both his honor and his former glory. When Jeff’s actions engage the FBI and US Marshals to protect Allie and free her family from the cartel, a war breaks out in the mountains along the Oregon-California border.
Will Jeff’s efforts enable the two to survive and their budding relationship to grow? Not unless he can keep Allie and her family out of the black hole known as asylum detention. And the reward he now seeks for his efforts, Allie’s love, might evaporate like his dream of Olympic gold once Allie learns about Jeff’s scandalous past.
Chasing Freedom, a modern-day story of honor and courage, faith and love, and the importance of family.

"Chasing Freedom" by H.L. Wegley is the third and final book in the (Against All Enemies) series and I think it is my favorite.
I have read all three books in this series and they are all full of love and suspension. Chasing Freedom, is a modern-day story of honor and courage, faith and love, and the importance of family.
Allie and Jeff meet under dangerous conditions. Allie and her family are captured and labor trafficked by the same drug cartel that drove her father from Mexico, and Allie is running and trying to help and she collapses in Jeff's arms and from there the romance begins.
This story is clean but does look at the U.S. immigration system from the point of view of a family being abused by it. The violence described in the book is very minimum.
The author does tell in the start of the book he recommends that you skip the epilogue and the final ending if you haven't read the other two books, till you read the other books, and since I have read all three I have to say I agreed with Him, as reading these first they are spoiler alerts.
I really really recommend reading these three books and if you do I say you will be a fan of H. L. Wegley also!
If you want to read a book or books, that really keep you guessing on what IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT or how the book is going to end, then ( Against All Enemies) should be your next read.
I really enjoyed Allie and Jeff's story as well as the other two couples in these books.
I say pick up these three books today and be inspired by love and be reminded again of what God does for His people, and be reminded of what a great country we live in despite the struggles and wrongs in this great country we live in.
I was given a complimentary copy by the author and these opinions are my own.
