Release day: Against the Tide
Today is the official release of Against the Tide by Kat Martin (paperback and ebook, Zebra). Here’s the blurb:
Liv Chandler is running for her life, and the cops haven’t been able to do a thing to help. But there’s one man who makes her feel safe, no matter what … rugged charter boat captain Rafe Brodie.
To Rafe, Liv is a beautiful mystery, one he can’t ignore. He means to unearth her secrets, and in the process, if luck is on his side, maybe the spark between them will ignite.
But Liv’s past is more dangerous than Rafe could guess, and when his first mate turns up dead, she fears that she’s next. That there’s something else coming she can’t see. That even Rafe and the remote village of Valdez, Alaska can’t protect her forever.
Kat dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
I’ve always loved Alaska. I finally got to make my first driving trip up there a few years back—a month on the road in the back of a pickup camper! I wrote a book called Midnight Sun when I got back. A few years later, I got the opportunity to make the same trip. By the time I got back, I had decided to write novels about three brothers. Those became Against the Wild, Against the Sky and Against the Tide. In Against the Tide, Rafe Brodie is the captain of a charter fishing boat fleet in tiny Valdez, Alaska. It’s a majestic but harsh and remote place to live. Fascinated by the new owner of the Pelican Café, Olivia Chandler, Rafe begins to wonder why such a beautiful young woman would want to hide herself away in such a place. Rafe is determined to solve the mystery but, when his first mate, young Scotty Ferris, is murdered, Rafe has a far more important mystery to solve. Since Scott was Liv’s friend, too, she is equally determined to find his killer. As the clues unfold, Rafe and Liv are drawn into a web of secrets and lies that lead both of them into danger. It’s a high action adventure. I particularly liked the characters and the love that develops between them. I think this is one of my best.
