    suspenseful romance

    Against the Storm is the fourth installment in the Raines of Wild Canyon series by Kat Martin. Fear not, each book can be read as a standalone. In each tale Martin gives us a suspenseful situation, a female in distress and a sexy cowboy to help save the day. Maggie O¿Connell is a strong, successful photographer. Recently, she has been finding little notes on her car and they are beginning to scare her Encouraged by her friend she goes to the police. A youthful mistake makes the police department believe that Maggie is simply crying wolf. When she sees private investigator Trace Rawlins working another case, she realizes he might be able to help her. When Maggie walks into Trace¿s firm asking for help against a stalker, Trace takes one look at this redheaded beauty, and is ready to run. Everybody knows Trace has a thing for redheads. Two years ago he divorced one, and he still hasn¿t recovered from her lying, cheating ways. Despite his personal concerns, his instincts tell him this is a serious threat to Maggie. What follows is a suspenseful, wildly romantic story, which will have you flipping the pages to reach the outcome. Martin is very good at delivering a suspenseful mystery interlaced with the right amount of romance. I am looking forward to the next book in the series entitled, Against the Night. I recommend Against the Storm to anyone who enjoys suspenseful mysteries and spicy romances. It is a quick, easy, delightful read.

    Stalking Passion!

    Maggie O'Connell is sitting in a bar when she sees a wild conflict break out between a young famous rock singer and his wife and her lawyer, the spark being the fact his wife wants a divorce. A young, sexy-looking, powerful guy breaks in and manages to take out the singer and his companions. Maggie tries to take pictures but the guy takes away her camera and erases the photos. She's annoyed but drawn to this guy who brooks no disagreement. Her friend reminds Maggie of her own present problem and how she might want to connect with this guy after getting his card and phone number. It's not too long before she receives a frightening message on her phone machine that makes her quickly decide to try to engage his help.

    Nothing is simple in this multi-layered-plotted story. Trace quickly decides to help Maggie, although his stronger instincts tell him he should walk away and stay uninvolved. He learns she's got a secret that is obviously an obstacle in her inability to get police help and protection for an obvious stalker. Add to that he finds her ultra-sexy, having a penchant for attractive red-headed women. At a certain point, he's sure he's had enough when he learns she's lying to him, plus his ex-girlfriend keeps showing up at the wrong times and always begging for more of what he's left in the past.

    Meanwhile the phone messages and written messages inside her apartment heighten the suspense and Maggie's fear. It seems strange that her half-sister and baby appears in the middle of all this chaos and Trace learns one of his former clients has met an untimely and very suspicious end. The pace quickens as does Trace's decision to forgive Maggie; the passion quickly develops along with the threats. Trace is no dummy and while sharing his love of the ocean and ranches manages to solve the prevailing two mysteries of the novel, with a most satisfactory ending that is both surprising and thrilling.

    Kat Martin's writing gets better and better. She writes a great mystery and adds just enough romance to entice and endear every reader. Great, haunting, and sizzling story, Ms. Martin!!!

    enjoyable mystery

    4 STARS
    It was a great mystery,romance novel that I enjoyed reading. Would not mind reading any more of her books.
    Maggie is a Photographer and is making a name for herself. While she was at lunch with a friend a celebrity couple was meeting with their lawyers,band members and a bodyguard to keep the peace. But the husband was abuser and he was mad and started to reach for his wife and bodyguard stopped him and also took one other band member out. Maggie had her camera and started taking pictures of band members on floor when Trace the bodyguard took her camera erased the pictures. Then took her camera away till she left.
    Maggie's friend told her that she might want to hire him to help her with her stalker. Maggie has red hair and everyone was already warning her about Trace liked red hair ladies.
    Maggie called Trace's security company when she had another note left on her car. She did not call cops, because when she was 16 she said her boyfriend raped her and a week later said , she lied. His father was a cop so no one trusted her or wanted to help her.
    Then someone broke into her house and Trace had alarms put in plus security cameras on front and back. Then the stalker called and left messages on her answering machine.
    Her half sister Ashley that she only saw a few times showed up with a baby asking for help. Ashley and Maggie started to get a long and know each other. Ashley loves to cook and wants to go to chef school when she ready.
    Maggie started seeing Trace apart from just working to find her stalker and she left his house to go home in the middle of the night and found her condo on fire.
    Lucky Ashley and her baby got out safely and were going to stay with Trace. Jason met Ashley when he followed Trace over their wanting to know if he had found out any new information on his father's sucide. He could not keep his eyes of Ashley and their first date was the night of the fire. He found a place where they could stay at a friends apartment who was away for weeks. So Ashley and the baby stayed there. Maggie stayed with Trace till her stalker was found.
    Their was a whole lot more going on with Maggie and Trace besides trying to find the stalker and see if he was also had paid someone to destroy her office and all photos and memory cards.

    Readers aren't going to be able to put the lights out until the past page. 4 1/2 STARS!

    4 1/2 STARS "Fans of Martin's Rains of Wind Canyon trilogy are going to love meeting this testosterone-and-honor-laden family. Trace is an upright guy with a predilection for redheads in distress and Maggie is a redhead with a big problem. The chemistry between them sizzles, the romantic suspense is tautly compelling and the psychological terror ratchets up with each red herring. Readers aren't going to be able to put the lights out until the last page." -RTBOOK Reviews
