This case may prove to be too hot to handle.

There’s silver out there: Sabrina Eckhart is sure of it. And when she finds the hidden mine on that big piece of West Texas desert, all of her financial problems are solved. That is, if she can find it. The man with the skills she needs is private investigator Alex Justice—a former navy fighter pilot and current pain in the neck.

When mysterious “accidents” start to plague their search, it seems Rina’s multi-acre inheritance might be more a curse than a blessing. And yet, there’s still something sensual about the heat, his arrogance, her stubbornness … being thrust into each other’s arms by danger. But the vultures are circling, and if they don’t watch their backs, the relentless desert sun could be the last thing Rina and Alex ever see.

    " Got stuck reading this for book club. "

    " I used to love Kat Martin above all other authors - her stories held suspense, romance, and danger. Now I feel like these plots are very predictable, and it has become very ho-hum. She is keeping on this series after like 7 previous books, and they just seem to be the same. I miss the old Kat Martin plots! "

    " The pacing was excellent, the various problems for the protagonists multitudinous but this one isn't as good as the previous books in this series. A bit too much stretching to reach the required state of affairs between the lovers. There were many good parts to it though. I particularly liked the way Martin dealt with stranding the couple in the desert. The style in which she had them cope is believable enough and even delightful. By and large I enjoyed both Sabrina and Alex though his reasons for avoiding 'love' were very weak. Still, I will read the next one because Martin does both action and love well and yes, her love scenes burn up the pages. But they would be blah without the accompanying adventures which she does especially well. "

    " Author Kat Martin continues her "The Raines of Wind Canyon" series with Book #7, "Against the Odds"--a highly-charged romantic suspense adventure! Old secrets blend with modern mysteries in an action-packed tale that has the hero and heroine on the run from a treacherous enemy, and on their guard against falling hard for each other! By the time Sabrina Eckhart inherits three thousand acres of West Texas desert from her Uncle Walter, her career as stockbroker is sputtering, and her personal finances are fizzling. Selling her much-loved luxury items one by one to raise capital is tough pill to swallow, but a woman's gotta do what a woman's gotta do. Hiring "sexy as sin" private investigator Alex Justice to fly her out to the remote property is a gamble she's willing to take, even if it means fighting her attraction to him while they scout for a possible silver mine bonanza. Alex has been intrigued by Sabrina since they met through mutual friends, but the two of them had been more like sparring partners than casual acquaintances. How could he refuse the opportunity to spend private time with her and follow up on what he is sure is mutual desire? Their journey becomes a fight for survival as their search for silver stirs up rattlesnake's nest of trouble. Sabrina's savvy smarts and Alex's brainy brawn are put to the test, and this is one test they can't afford to fail, especially when their lives are on the line. Even if they defeat their enemy, are they up to the even greater challenge of surrendering their hearts to each other? If you love romantic suspense with appealing characters and plenty of action and adventure, then you will love "The Raines of Wind Canyon" series from author Kat Martin.
