“The Raines of Wind Canyon Series is in a class by itself and if you haven’t started the journey yet. I recommend that you do!” ~Under the Covers
I have been a fan of Kat Martin since The Raines of Wind Canyon’s first book, Against the Wind, which I read in April of 2011. I was a relatively new reader to the Romantic Suspense genre, and since having started these Kat Martin books, I have forged full speed ahead into each and every story that Kat has written. Kat is a genius when it comes to that mystery with romance thrown into the mix That Alpha male with his protective instincts an intoxicating quality that Kat writes so well. No two stories are the same and no character similar. The Raines of Wind Canyon Series is in a class by itself and if you haven’t started the journey yet. I recommend that you do!
Sexy as sin Private Investigator,Tyler Brodie was essentially a player. He wanted no long term relationships other than with his business associates, that is until he sets his eyes on the out of reach Haley Warren, who happens to be niece to one of Ellie, one of his most trusted friends. When Haley’s step-mother calls Haley to tell her she believes Haley’s father was murdered and did not die in a boating accident as was reported, Haley wants to know the truth. Having been estranged from her her father, James Warren, since his divorce from Haley’s mother some years before, Haley had wanted to mend the rift, but never got that chance.
When Tyler sees the urgency in the tiny blonde’s eyes to get to the bottom of the disturbing loss of her father, he knows regardless of whether it was an accident or murder, he would follow through to the end, because quicker than lightning, the player, Tyler disappears and protective and possessive Tyler makes an appearance. Haley tries to deny the mutual attraction, sure that once her questions are answered, she will return to mother and her existence in Chicago, but emotions heat up as the danger increases.
When Haley’s life is endangered, full on Alpha male Tyler appears as well as his entire group of trustworthy friends to help with the investigation and keep Haley safe. Only thing is, these criminals are really bad news. When Tyler and Haley discover the theft of priceless artwork these wealthy men set loose a group of hardcore assassins to silence the work that James Warren had begun before his life was cut short and his daughter, Haley continues. Who comes out the victor is this game of death? Only by reading AGAINST THE MARK by Kat Martin will that question be answered.
In typical Kat Martin fashion, the reader is on the edge of their seat. This nail biting suspense keeps you wondering who will prevail in this tale of murder and theft. I adore Kat’s hero and heroine. Tyler Brodie is a confident and intelligent man, who knows the young Haley Warren is a bit naive, but that doesn’t stop him from showing Haley what it could be like for two passionate people to let go. Haley actually does a lot of growing up in this short time, or should I say that her eyes are opened since all she ever knew is the world her mother told her about. The camaraderie between Tyler and his friends and how they accept Haley into their fold is a great addition to this story. I truly enjoyed AGAINST THE MARK by Kat Martin and I recommend it to all.
