Description

It's not in bodyguard Jake Cantrell's job description to share his suspicions with his assignments. Beautiful executive Sage Dumont may be in charge, but Jake's not on her payroll. As a former special forces marine, Jake trusts his gut, and it's telling him there's something off about a shipment arriving at Marine Drilling International. His instinct is arousedin more ways than one.
A savvy businesswoman, Sage knows better than to take some hired gun's "hunch" as gospel. And yet she is learning not to underestimate the man her grandfather hired to protect her. Determined to prove Jake wrong, Sage does some digging of her own and turns up deadly details she was never meant to see.
Drawn into a terrifying web of lies and deceitand into feelings they can't afford to explorewhat Jake and Sage uncover may be frighteningly worse than they ever imagined.

Praise For Against the Sun

"With the first novel of her new Raines of Wind Canyon trilogy, Martin brings us a rugged hero, a strong-willed heroine, and a story filled with romance, grit, tension and suspense set in the Wyoming mountains. Martin definitely delivers."-Romantic Times on Against the Wind



"After reading the first book about the Raines 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. The second book is as amazing as the first. Ms. Martin continues to draw her readers into the stories of these three wonderful brothers...."-Suspense Romance Writers on Against the Fire, 10/10



"Once you start Against the Law, be prepared not to stop until you've reached the end. With its nonstop action, nail biting episodes mixed with some sizzling love scenes, this is one I highly recommend."--Romance Reviews Today



"Kat Martin is one of the best authors around! She has an incredible gift for writing."

-Literary Times



"Martin dishes up sizzling passion and true love, then serves it up with savoir faire."

-Los Angeles Daily News



"4½ quills! Ms. Martin has struck the mother load in her AGAINST series. Against the Law is her third installment in the series and by far the most powerfully intense romantic suspense with its charismatic characters, a story line that defies gravity with enough endorphins and adrenaline driven that even the Die Hard series can't hold a candle to this brilliantly written series. Ms. Martin is a true mistress of the written word that never disappoints her readers."-Romantic Crush Junkies



"As you might suspect from any Kat Martin book, this is gloriously suspenseful, magnificent reading and filled with hot and wonderful passion. Martin is superb!"-Romance Reviews Magazine on Against the Storm



"Truly a gifted author, I've never read a book by Kat Martin that wasn't immediately headed for my keeper shelf. Historical or contemporary, she's a must read for me. With Against the Storm she proves once again why I keep coming back for more."-Joyfully Reviewed on Against the Storm



"Fans of Martin's Raines of Wind Canyon trilogy 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." -RT Book Reviews on Against the Storm
