In America's last wilderness, there are no limits to what a man can do.

For detective Nick Brodie, that means keeping the perps off the streets of Anchorage 24/7. Nick has never backed down from danger, but after the horrors he's seen, he's definitely in need of a break.

Samantha Hollis never thought she'd meet anyone like Nick, especially in a place like Las Vegas. But after one reckless, passionate night, she discovers the charismatic stranger is everything she wants in a man. But can he ever be anything more than a one-night stand?

When Nick invites her to Alaska, Samantha decides to find out, never guessing the depths she'll discover in him or the tangle of murder, kidnapping, and danger about to engulf them both...

Against the Sky (Brodies of Alaska, #2)My Review
Against the Sky by Kat Martin

Kat Martin brings us another Brodie to stare in awe at. Nick is a detective; he’s seen more evil than he cares to think about on his job. A brief trip to Vegas is just what he needs, but he wasn’t prepared for Samantha Hollis or what would become of their hot, one night stand. When the big alpha male invites the strong-willed lady to Alaska, Samantha decides this could be an adventure. She had no idea…aside from discovering she does not want to be stranded in Alaska, murder, mayhem and the Russian mob are sorely testing both of their resolves, just to stay alive. Can Nick protect Samantha? Can Samantha let him? Will love conquer the great divide between a city girl and a warrior who likes his terrain as tough as he is?

Against the Sky by Kat Martin sizzles enough to melt a polar icecap. She allows these two polar opposite to find that elusive chemistry that the world craves, but their differences present enough of a challenge that one wonders I love can conquer all or not. Kick in the suspense and danger from the Russian mob and voila! Romantic suspense! Sure, Samantha was out of her element, to put it mildly, but I almost offered to buy her a ticket out!

Overall, another wonderful hot alpha, hot suspense tale from Kat Martin that threatens to speed up global warming.

I received this ARC edition from Zebra Books and Kat Martin as part of Kat Martin's Review Tour, stopping at Tome Tender January 9, 2015.


  1. I do love romantic suspense, and I have read Martin's historicals and loved them, and I think I would love a chance to try her contemporaries out. Which book would you recommend I try reading first?

    1. If you want real alpha contemporary guys...try book one, in this series. These guys do not quite drag their knuckles, but they do fit the idea of living in a rough terrain and climate!
