Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers who like their romances and jungles steamy will gobble up the latest contemporary romance from the unfailingly entertaining Martin (The Fire Inside). With two blonde ex-wives in his past and an arsenal of blonde jokes at his fingertips, undercover ATF agent Jake Dawson thinks his luck couldn't get worse when he discovers a pert blonde stowaway in the middle of his sting operation to capture gun-runners. But his unmasking as a fed by one of the bad guys and a subsequent airplane crash into the Mexican jungle quickly prove him wrong. Luckily Allie Parker, who stumbled into Jake's operation while searching for her roommate's murderer, possesses more brains, guts and stamina than he initially gives her credit for, and it's not long before the attraction between the two of them reaches a boiling point. But Jake regards his heart as a lost cause, and Allie has to fight through all his defenses to prove they can have a future together once his mission is complete. Martin's latest offers few surprises to those familiar with the law-enforcement-hunk-meets-kindhearted-modern-gal formula, or any deep emotional tugs, but the story succeeds admirably as a fluffy escapist adventure that is buoyed by frequent doses of hot sex. (May) Forecast: Expect strong sales. Martin's fan base is stalwart, and an electric orange cover, combined with print advertising in The New York Times, USA Today and Romantic Times, will entice readers looking for fun beach reading.

    A TEDIOUS READ

    I WAS VERY SHOCKED AT THE WAY THIS BOOK TREATED THE SUBJECT OF RAPE SO LIGHTLY. THE FEMALE CHARACTER WAS MAN HANDLED SO OFTEN AND BY SO MANY DIFFERENT MEN IT WAS AWFUL. THE STORY WAS SLOW AND PLODDING, NOTHING OF MUCH INTEREST.

    Not Kat Martins Best

    I am a HUGE Kat Martin fan but this book started pretty slow. But, I hung in for 100 pages or so and then it picked up and got more interesting... Allie and Jake were a delightful couple who went through a lot of excitement to fall in love... Allie starts out as a stowaway on a luxury yacht manned by three less than trustworthy men. I think that was the part that moved slow for me... Once they landed in the jungle in Belize things started to move and the story line became more exciting... Gun running can be pretty dangerous... Allie is a young woman looking for her place in life and she took the hard way to find it when her friend and roommate winds up dead and Allie thinks it is murder... Jake was a two time loser in marriage whose ex had disappeared with his five year old son... An ex Special Forces officer working undercover added to the story... I don't know how believable parts of the book were but overall I enjoyed it.

    Overdone & Implausible

    This book was far too long given the content. The heroine, despite the hero's opinion, is simply not that bright given her actions. It was emotionally shallow and the author goes overboard with physical descriptions that add nothing to the plot. It doesn't lack steamy sections, but they don't properly complement what should have been a far more serious and intense story that I simply couldn't buy into.

    action-packed romantic suspense

    In San Diego, Mary Alice Parker drops her friend Christine Chambers off by the yacht, but before Mary Alice can reach her car and leave the bay area, Christine and boyfriend Donnie Markham die in an explosion on the Dynasty Corporation owned craft Dynasty I. Mary Alice ponders several recent conversations in which Christine worried about the unknown activities, perhaps illegal that Donnie performs for Dynasty Corporation. Soon Mary Alice begins to wonder if a double homicide occurred to eliminate Donnie from the company rather than the official opinion that an accident happened. <P>She investigates leading to her sneaking on board the Dynasty II just before the vessel sets sail for Belize. On board along with the female stowaway are Agent Jake Dawson and two thugs. When one of the goons finds Mary Alice, Jake claims her as his and makes it clear that if she wants to survive this trip without rape and death she must pretend to be his beautiful bimbo bunkmate. However, feigned sex begins to turn into love complicating the complex even further. <P>HOT RAIN is an action-packed romantic suspense that contains quite a wallop of a story line. Though why Mary Alice insists on making inquiries including trespassing when no evidence existed seems out of character is a mystery in and of itself. Still, fans will relish her feisty behavior, as she appears like a modern day Rosie (Hepburn) to Jake¿s Alnut (Bogart) in the African Queen. Kat Martin has written a strong tale that sub-genre fans will enjoy the ride. <P>Harriet Klausner

    once again miss kat has delivered a story that more than pleases

    once again miss kat has delivered a story that more than pleases. allie parker just knows that her friend chrissy's death was no accident. in her quest for truth she gets trapped on a gun runner's yacht with three men, two of which have unwelcome plans for her. the third, jake, is protective of her, but she can't figure why. the story continues with heart pounding love scenes, and pulse pounding action scenes that will leave you breathless at times. turns out the three men aren't running drugs as allie thought, but guns, and trading for the antiquities of mayan ancestors. dangerous is not a strong enough word for the dangers they face. miss kat has done what she does best and written a story guaranteed to leave you wanting more!!

    Utterly HOT

    I usually can call a books end by the 2nd chapter of the books. I was quite thrilled to find a book that made me second guess my conclusions on more than one occasion.
    I have reread the book more than once!

    LEADERS DEN

    Below the High Ledge is a cave in the rock. Inside it is fairly roomy. It is perfect for the leader. And maybe his mate. -Stormstar
