This is the first (possibly only) book by Kat M I have/will read. I felt like I was reading a diary of the sex life of the 2 main characters. While I enjoy a few hot sex scenes, this was just over the top, I lost interest after awhile. I kept thinking the plot would get better, but for me it didn't. I'm not a prude by any means but I just wanted to barf after reading all the repeated descriptions of perfect bodies, perfect skin, perfect hair, relentless sex, constant lust...blah blah blah..not my cup of tea.
For reference of my taste in reading, I like Robyn Carr and Linda Lael Miller for romance. I should point out I mostly read thrillers, but like a romance for a change once in awhile.

Handbag designer Lark Delaney desperately wants to find her niece adopted by strangers as her sister Heather was only sixteen when she gave birth. She pleads with thirty something Devlin Raines at his Arizona ranch to help her. Mentioning that his Army Ranger buddy Madman Monroe sent him saying he owed him, reluctantly as he has retired from field work the Raines Investigation analyst agrees to make inquiries.

Devlin assumes this will be a quick search, but is stunned when his assumption proves false as his friend expert Chaz Denton searches the net only to find Loving Home Adoptions not licensed in Arizona, but gives him a printing clue to begin a search for Mrs. Olcott who arranged the adoption. Following the trail, Dev accompanied by Lark go from Southern California to Mexico with each clue making both fear for the child. The case has turned personal for Dev who cares for the child he has not met fearing she has been sold into sexual slavery and especially for the frantic aunt who begged him to find her.

The third Raines of Wind Canyon romantic suspense thriller (see Against the Fire and Against the Wind) is a terrific tense tale filled with twists and spins as nothing goes according to Raines' plan. He, like his older brothers, is a strong hero, but has met his equal in Lark who fearlessly stomps on snakes. Timely with the plight of young females being sold, readers will root for the pair to rescue her niece as we fear what has happened to that little girl.

Is it really necessary to mention the word groin five times in the first 30 pages? Kat Martin certainly thinks so. The book has a very sophomoric vibe, just like a clique of girls gossiping about boys and giggling.

This is the last book of the Raines trilogy and it deals with Devlin, the youngest of the brothers. Three years ago he was madly in love with Amy, who left him a few days before their marriage. This experience has marked Devlin who swore to himself to never fall in love again. Then he meets Lark Delaney, a fairly know handbag designer. One of Devlin old friends from the military has recommended him to Lark who promised to her dying sister to find her little daughter whom she was forced to give up for adaptation when she was only sixteen. Devlin, who is in the security business, owns his old friend a favor and agrees to help Lark. What seems as a straightforward search becomes a very difficult undertaking during which Lark and Dev discover their real feelings for each other.

This book didn't have a clear orientation. It started as a romantic suspense novel and became a military romance that culminated in a completely utopian rescue operation. This part of the novel was so detailed concerning rifles, weapon types and who carried what gun during the rescue that I thought I was reading another book. Maybe the author should have omitted these details and refined the plot of the story more in depth.

In any case, I was really looking forward to reading Dev's story and wasn't disappointed. It could have definitely been more detailed and extensive. Lark was also very likeable, although her transformation from handbag designer to military elite was completely over the top and not necessary at all.

Nice read for relaxing hours.

I can't believe all the great reviews. I kept coming back looking for a reviewer who had the same feelings about this as I did. But, reading all the fives, I plowed on.

The plot definitely took too much of a turn in the second half. The romance was written really pathetically and so not romantic.

But my biggest issue with this story was Lark. Am I seriously the only one who thought she was stupid? She comes along on every part of the mission, and all she does is get in herself in danger, or be utterly useless. She cries or tears up about any little thing, she can't take care of a child - seriously, how do you not know what to buy a four-year-old? Also, there's nothing that turns me off of a character than superficiality. She designs handbags, for God's sake. She spends all her money on facials, manicures, hair salon appointments, suggestive clothing - and if I had to read about her describing Dev as "extremely handsome" one more time I was gonna toss the book across the room. She lusted for him. He lusted for her. I know they both didn't want to leave each other, but I didn't see any emotional connection between them.

I have been reading Kat Martin for years and was astounded by how...blech this was.
