Overview

One of a kind.

Kat Martin's heroes are as rugged and tough as they come, but honor rules no matter how hot the temptation. . .

For reporter Hope Sinclair, writing about the recovery of a sunken Spanish treasure off Pleasure Island should be her big break. Yet Hope can't help feeling she's been hand-picked for this job for all the wrong reasons. Someone wants Hope out of New York--and off a story that could blow a corruption case wide open. But if they think sending her to paradise will shut her up, they've got another thing coming. . .

Treasure hunter and former Navy SEAL Conner Reese isn't happy to have Hope along for the ride. He doesn't need the publicity, nor does he want a gorgeous redhead driving his crew--and himself--to distraction. But there's something else. Conner can sense extreme danger, and danger is following Hope Sinclair very, very closely. . .

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Greed, revenge, and passion swirl in Kat Martin's contemporary romantic thriller, the last in a trilogy (Desert Heat, Midnight Sun) featuring the Sinclair sisters. The action starts as reporter Hope Sinclair finds that her exposé on the plight of a retirement home results in a trashed apartment, scary phone calls, and reassignment to a sister publication. The new assignment seems plush enough -- covering the quest for buried Spanish treasure off Pleasure Island in the Caribbean -- but is it meant to shut her up? Hope's interviews with the handsome but unfriendly salvage director, Connor Reese, a former Navy SEAL, set off sparks from the beginning. Still, their passionate nights will never lead to anything more if Connor can't outmaneuver the dangerous men who threaten Hope's life. Ginger Curwen
Publishers Weekly
Spicy romance compensates for weak suspense in the third installment of bestseller Martin's Sinclair Sisters series (after Midnight Sun and Desert Heat). In the midst of investigating the condemnation of a city apartment building, Manhattan newspaper reporter Hope Sinclair gets pulled by her editor from that assignment and sent to Pleasure Island, near Jamaica, to chronicle the efforts of a treasure hunting team searching for priceless cargo from a Spanish ship that sank 400 years earlier. Near Pleasure Island, Hope boards the Conquest, the ship from which divers are conducting their search. Conner "Conn" Reese, treasure hunter and former Navy SEAL, is the primary player in the expedition. The close quarters of the Conquest serve to throw together Hope and Conn, two people jaded from previous disastrous relationships. Sexy romance sizzles between the pair in numerous love scenes. Unfortunately, the plot involving Conn's financial partner, who warns Hope away from continuing her research into the New York apartment house, is both predictable and underdeveloped, and the suspenseful action promised by the back cover copy never gets off the ground. Agent, Robert Gottlieb at Trident Media Group. (Apr.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    strong suspense thriller

    In Manhattan, Midday News reporter Hope Sinclair finds her apartment trashed, but nothing stolen and she is no longer covering the Buddy Newton Hartley House story as the newspaper owner has assigned her temporarily to another of his publications Adventurer Magazine to cover a treasure hunt story in the Caribbean. Led by Operations Chief Connor Reese they seek the Spanish gold and silver bearing ship the Nuestra Senora de Rosa which sunk along with three other ships in 1605 due to a late hurricane. --- Hope comes on board the Conquest upsetting Connor who was not expecting a woman or a journalist. Conn fears publicity will make the quest more dangerous with amateurs showing up. Hope frets over her attraction to the belligerent Conn, who feels the same way as neither trusts the other gender. As they become acquainted with the courage and caring of the other, Hope and Conn make love. As the search continues and the danger mounts at Hartley House where Buddy is dead and at sea, Conn and Hope fall in love, but neither is ready to compromise.--- The third Sinclair sister romance (see DESERT HEAT and MIDNIGHT SUN) is a strong suspense thriller starring a wonderful lead couple and fine support cast especially the crew and the Professor. The story line takes the audience under the sea with an interesting look at underwater salvage especially the Caribbean locale. Surprisingly, the New York subplot enhances the prime Caribbean story line; a tribute to Kat Martin¿s writing skills. Hope¿s stubbornness makes her a terrific reporter although she drives readers and Conn crazy with her fear of relationships. Still this is a deep descriptive contemporary.--- Harriet Klausner

    Not my favorite in this trilogy

    Kat Martin is a remarkable writer...she's very descriptive and makes it easy for the reader to get a good mental picture of the characters and surroundings. However, Hope's character was highly aggravating. What happened to her with her ex-fiance had been 2 years prior...get over it already. I don't mind, in fact I kind of like, when the main characters in the story get off to a rocky start and don't like each other...makes it more interesting and intense when they do become intimate. But being intimate and pulling back over and over again is ridiculous. Granted this is fiction, but please, Ms. Martin, try to make your stories a little more believable.

    What can I say....You read and you review

    This book was well written. I loved the plot and the characters. I was a bit pissed off at Conner in the beginning because of his incorrect, sexist assumptions about Hope. Other than that I thought the book lived up to the praise and matched the other two in the series. One thing I have a great problem with is Martin's facts about Jamaica. For one thing, if you are going to use a real island, do your research properly or do not use the island at all. The motto was wrong, the name of the airport was wrong and the speech used when Jamaicans spoke was horribly far from the actual language. A notable author would make the effort to represent someone's country with a bit more respect and not automatically tag it as one that is typical and 'island'. Each one is different so unless you actually lived there and consulted with real Jamaicans, don't make assumptions.

    Deep Blue

    The last Sinclair sister to remain unattached, Hope, is given a prime assignment reporting on the next Atocha. Though many suspect she got the job through less than savory ways, in fact, the ulterior motive that sent her there was to keep her out of someone's way. That does not mean that she is out of danger, rather, she finds herself right in the middle of it, and not mere physical danger. The greatest danger is also the greatest treasure, love. Hope's heart is placed at major risk by one of the treasure seekers, Conn. After a rocky start, the two move from simple passion towards deeper waters, but though between them, Hope and Conn can handle the perils of the deep and gunmen, facing a committed love is even more frightening. .............................. *** Nicely wrapping up the Sinclair trilogy with an action packed adventure in an exotic setting, Ms. Martin whisks her readers on an odyssey of romance with strong characters and mind boggling suspense. ***

    Wonderful Conclusion

    Deep Blue by Kat Martin is a spectacular conclusion to the Sinclair sister¿s trilogy.*** Reporter Hope Sinclair is picked to write a story about sunken treasure in the Caribbean. It becomes clear that the powers that be want her off a corruption story in New York. But Hope is bound and determined to do an ace job on both pieces. *** Conner Reese head of the treasure hunting trip, isn¿t to thrilled to have a pesky reporter along. Conner had hardened his heart against woman but Hope keeps working her way in daily. *** When the danger from NY comes couth and threatens Hope, Conner will do anything to protect her. *** Conner and Hope both have been burned by loves in the past. Each has to learn to put the past aside and work towards a future. *** This book has me enthralled from the get go. The treasure-hunting story was very compelling and intriguing. Hope and Conner had a connection that made you root for them. Their passion was scorching, this is a must read.
