Redheads like Maggie O’Connell are nothing but trouble. But Trace Rawlins, a former army ranger turned private investigator, takes the case anyway. After all, he knows a thing or two about women.

Trace can sense that something is wrong—Maggie isn’t telling him everything. If these menacing calls and messages are real, why won’t the police help her? And if they aren’t real, what is she hiding? As Trace digs deeper to find the source of Maggie’s threats, he discovers a secret that no one was meant to uncover. And the only puzzle left to be solved is whether the danger comes from an unknown stalker—or from the woman he’s trying his hardest not to fall for.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fans of Martin’s Raines of Wind Canyon [series] are going to love meeting more of his testosterone-and-honor-laden family…The romantic suspense is tautly compelling and the psychological terror ratchets up with each red herring. Readers aren’t going to be able to put the light out until the last page.”

    " I usually read Ms. Martin's historicals and thought I'd like to try one of her current books. I found this book to be oddly paced, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, but the writing in general to be good. I liked the main characters but wasn't wild about either. Actually I found the supporting cast to be of more interest. Ashley and Jason's story would have made a better main theme than Maggie and Trace, except for the private detection, which added greatly to the story. The photography just went over my head. I didn't get a thing from that. Most of it was too generally described, in spite of a few of the pictures being very well-described. For some reason the book wasn't very visual when the subject matter demanded that it be visual. The ending took a dark turn that was unexpected and unwelcome, but I will still find the first three in the series and try them. I do like Ms. Martin's writing. "

    " Though advertised as part of the Raines series, they are only mentioned & don't actually show up. There are a few series bait characters who do appear from previous books in the Raines series (and will be the focus of future books). Though the story wasn't bad, there was too much of series bait. And I wanted to kit both of the main characters up the side of the head to just talk things out at times. Secondary story wasn't developed enough. I will read the next ones, but I hope they are better developed. "

    " I love Kat Martin books! I really do like this series. The hotties of Atlas Security. They are from different branches of the military turned PI's, They are bodyguards and whatever it takes to protect their clients they are going to do at any cost. I really did enjoy this book reading the next in the series . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/29/2013

    " This book was ok, not great, not terrible, just kind of bland. Probably more like a 2.5 instead of 3.0 The previous books of the series were better than this one. The book lacked any real suspense and the "mystery" stalker plot was kind of flat. The solution to every problem the characters faced in this book was to fall into bed, got a stalker - get naked, house burn down - get naked, lose all your work - get naked. And even though they were naked all the time it wasn't really very steamy. It got a little old. With all that said, if your to-be-read pile is low this book could be a filler until your next shipment arrives. Hopefully Mrs. Martin will pick up the pace with the next installment. "

    " Trash. Kat Martin's prose displays all the grace and elegance of the proverbial village drunkard, and all the erudition of the village idiot. Worth neither the time nor the money, unless you're looking for a primer on how not to write a novel. "

    " It was interesting, even if too much was going on to keep the suspense gripping. The narrator was much like the heroine. Not saying enough. They subscribe to "when in doubt, say nothing." "

    " ZZZzzzzzzZZZZZZzzzzz....I hate when a series I really enjoy starts to fizzle out...and this one went out like a wet firecracker. (sigh). I think Trace and Maggie will likely divorce. Trace is a jerk. I can't even get excited about the 5th one in the series. "
