Against the Sun is the sixth novel in the Raines of Wind Canyon series by Kat Martin. These are romantic suspense novels which deal with ex-military men and the woman who capture their hearts. Each is designed to be read as a standalone. As always this reader prefers to read them in order. I like to get a sense of all the players and enjoy knowing the back-history. Against the Sun held my attention from page one and I was swept away. In this novel we finally get Jack Cantrell’s story. He is a former special force marine who now works security jobs all over the world. He loves the ladies and respects them, but has no intention of settling down. Recently he has been doing work for his buddy’s security business in Houston. The tale begins with him arriving at the offices of Marine Drilling International. He has been asked to act as bodyguard for Sage Elizabeth Durmont as she entertains a Saudi sheik and his family. She is negotiating a multi-million dollar deal to buy a used oil drill platform and piping. She needs to understand customs, and be protected from those who oppose the deal. Sage doesn’t think she needs Jack’s help, but her grandfather insists. She plans on letting this sexy jar-head know exactly who the boss is. Jack is not happy with having to deal with the breathtakingly beautiful and privileged executive. He figures she is a spoiled brat, who got her position due to birth. The tale that unfolds is filled with sexual tension and action packed drama, as threats are made against Sage and the sheik. Martin provides well fleshed out characters who make the tale feel genuine. Sage at times got on my nerves. Her wavering on decisions in her personal life made me crazy. I know she is a careful planner, but as a top executive in a cut throat business, I expected her to make decisions and stick with them. I did love the way she did what was morally right, even at the cost of business. Jake is complicated, and always in motion. He has a strong moral compass and despite some Neanderthal tendencies is completely swoon-worthy. They are both convinced that what they have is a fling and that it could never work. Watching the two of them discover that with love all things are possible, was fantastic! Other characters including the Sheik’s family helped round out the tale and make the drama compelling. The story line is fast paced, and there are many different components. All of which kept me delightful engaged. There is the business deal and a fiance' to deal with. The sheik's daughter is delightful and I loved her story line. The son is dark and his tale is filled with danger. The attacks occurring could be related to the deal or a personal attack against Sage. Watching Jack and his team piece together the clue and save the day was an awesome ride. Martin has an amazing ability to weave different plot threads together creating suspense and mystery. She has created a group of male characters that woman cannot help but fall in love with. I adore that she pairs them with strong, capable woman. I recommend Against the Sun and the Raines of Canyon series to fans of romantic suspense and swoon-worthy men. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. Kat Martin writes romances novels in all genres from paranormal to historical. I have read quite a few and enjoyed them, so be sure and check them out. I want to thanks Harlequin and netGalley for providing this ARC in exchange for my unbiased review.

Sage Dumont, is in the run to become Vice President of her Grandfathers Marine Drilling company. In order to get the job, she must close on a huge deal to buy some used drilling equipment from a Saudi Arabian sheik. Being a concerned grandfather, he hires Jake Cantrell to be Sage's bodyguard until the negotiations are complete. Unfortunately someone wants her to fail and when Jake and Sage stumble upon a plot more deadly than they can imagine, they must combine forces just to survive. I really enjoyed this story. It was the first in the series I read even though it is the sixth installement in the Raines Of Wind Canyon Series. I loved Jake's loner type character and Sage with her strong loyalty to her grandfather. The chemistry between them was great except they were convinced what they had was a fling, which in romance stories is usually part of the plot. After i finished this book I immediately went and got the rest of the series. Absolutely loved the book and Kat Martin is an amazing author.

Can you ever mix business with pleasure successfully? Sage Dumont learned the oil business from the bottom floor up and earned her position. She is determined to close the biggest deal ever for the family business and nothing will stop this Texas family from moving into the Middle East oil territory. No amount of threats, bad press, or a hot bodyguard is going to distract her. Wait Jake Cantrell is my bodyguard, not my personal dream of a man right. The one thing Jake knows is how to do security detail and keep his client safe, but no one told him he hand to keep his hands to himself. Jake does his best to keep Sage from being blown to bits by someone opposed to her deal his hands are full. She is used to being the boss and has Houston society flowing from her every pore yet Jake is not intimidated and sees her as a challenge that will be mastered. Sage is a constant surprise in the boardroom and Jake envisions the same for the bedroom, now he has to figure out how to get her there. Jake has never mixed business with pleasure but right now that is all he wants to do. Sage and Jake work as a team to figure out what scenario is playing out behind the scenes. There are risks at stake that go beyond Sage’s company right into the hands of Homeland Security, or so they suspect. Can this executive and her bodyguard stop potential terrorists before something worse than the deal blows up? When you count your reading blessings, make sure you are grateful that Kat Martin always has another book in the works. Ms. Martin defines the meaning of a phenomenal writer and proves it with every piece of literature she has produced

J: Did not enjoy this one as much as others. It is a pretty good story but a little too repetitive. I liked the characters but I did not get much into the plot.

Like the rest of the series this is a good read. It's also a quick read, which sometimes is a must. I wouldn't recommend reading the lengthy reviews if you plan to read the books...they spoil too much.
