Editorial Reviews

Review

Against the Wind
"This is definitely a page-turner full of compassion and love shared by two unlikely souls. This is a 'don't miss' read.... Kat Martin is a very gifted writer who takes you from the beginning to the end in total suspense." -Fresh Fiction

Against the Fire
"After reading the first book about the Raine brothers, I knew Kat Martin would have to do something pretty amazing to make her second book as much of a joy to read. As soon as I opened the book, I realized that she has succeeded.... I simply loved this book. I didn't want to put it down." -Suspense Romance Writers

Against the Law
"4 ½ quills! Ms. Martin has struck the motherload.... Against the Law is by far the most powerfully intense romantic suspense with its charismatic characters, [and] a story line that defies gravity." -Romantic Crush Junkies

Against the Storm
"Fans of Martin's Raines of Wind Canyon trilogy are going to love meeting more of this testosterone-and-honor-laden family." -RT Book Reviews

Against the Night
"Against the Night is not like anything else I've read.... I love a good suspense story, and this one packs one heck of a wallop." -Long and Short Reviews

Against the Sun
"[Martin] dishes up romantic suspense, sizzling sex and international intrigue in healthy doses, and fans are going to be the winners. Readers better set aside a block of time to finish this unputdownable tale of adventure and romance." -RT Book Reviews, Top Pick!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ben Slocum is a seasoned PI, was a former Navy SEAL, and right now a well-honed machine able to take a hit and get back up running. When Claire Chastain shows up at his door and tells me that he not only has a son that boy has been kidnapped Ben could have been knocked down by a feather.

Of course at first Ben did not believe it but Claire showed him one picture that closed the door on doubt. Now Ben goes into search and find mode, using every resource he has to get his son back and figure out what it means to be a father. Claire insists on tagging along because she knows the boy as she was his caseworker and her guilt at letting this happen is more than she can handle.

Ben says no, but Claire lays out her case of take me or I will follow, a great argument when fully considered and Ben really wanted to keep Claire as close as possible. The hunt becomes a chase and the chase turns into a nightmare as revelations of just who has Ben's son is and the potential implications of how truly dangerous this situation has turned into. Ben plots his plan of rescue and only when he has his son home does he take a quiet breath of relief that is short lived when he awakes to another nightmare that requires his ability to function under pressure.

Kat Martin writes amazing characters that have the grit it takes to do the hard work and still have romance to get through the night.

Eight books into this series and it's still as strong as ever. Kat Martin has delivered another hot alpha man with great suspenseful story.

Ben's your typical hard-headed alpha man. He got burnt once in the love department and has sworn off ever falling in love again ever since. He wanted to be a Navy Seal and he successfully was till an injury took him out. He's now been working as a PI at his best friend Trace Rawlins firm. What he never expected was to come home from one of his night stands and find a woman on his door step telling him that he had a nine year old son from the woman who broke his heart all those years ago and that she was dead and his son was missing.

Claire Chastain is a social worker who had been assigned Laura and Sam's case when Laura went on assistance for a short time. During that time Claire became good friends with Laura and came to love Sam like her own. When Laura died of cancer Claire did all she could to try and adopt Sam. When that didn't work he went into the foster care system which is where he disappeared from. She'd heard all about Ben and knew his training as a Navy Seal would be conducive in finding Sam.

The journey Ben and Claire go on to find Sam takes them too many states as they follow the clues. During this time Ben and Claire agree to no attachment sex to sate there strong attraction to each other but that doesn't quite work out so well for them.

Along with the figuring out and finding who took Sam there is also another side story going on with an ex-boyfriend of Claire's who manages to bring even more danger to her door.

This was another great romantic suspense from Kat Martin and I look forward to the next in this series.

I have read all of the storm series and find they are getting pretty predictable. The book was okay but I thought the whole chasing around the country after the kid was getting a little long and the rescue was a bit anti-climatic. I don't want to give away too much of the story line but I really thought the undercover drug story was an incomplete thought on the author's part and never really amounted to much. Really could not figure out why she bothered with it. And I had to laugh when she wrote, "he used the SEAL technique of becoming invisible in the shadows of the trees" or something like that. I mean how completely trite can an author be? It was an okay read for $6.00 but I will have to think twice about getting the next one.

Against the Edge is in my opinion the most powerful novel in the Wind Canyon series. It is a page straight out of life. The twists Kat Martin adds to this story cut to your soul. Action packed to the very end, it literally vibrates off the pages with sexual tension and human emotion. Ms. Martin is a gifted author with the ability to make her story intensely personal to her readers. Reviewed by Heide Katros, Winter Haven News Chief

Against the Edge is part of the Raines of Wind Canyon series. I like the series and have enjoyed most all the Kat Martin books I've read.

Edge continues in the same vein as the other books with investigator/private eye/tough guy Ben. This book is ok, not great, not awful just ok. I wish for more emotional response from the characters: you just found out you have a kid an he's been kidnapped should elicit more of an emotional tug and it should last more than a paragraph or so! And Claire as a social services worker? Her character was so disconnected from her (supposed) job that she could've been an insurance salesperson or a frycook and it wouldn't have mattered. I liked the home-grown-revolutionary angle as part of the bad guys, it was different.

One thing I love about the Raines series is the background characters. You get to revisit old friends and you meet new and interesting people you hope to see again. I would continue reading the series!
