Some women find trouble wherever they go. And some men are their only protection against it.Goodreads
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.

Kat Martin is an author that I will pick up a book from without even reading the back blurb. No matter what the story is about or what century it is set in, I know she will sweep me away with it. Against the Storm was no different. With two protagonists battling shadows from their past, Kat Martin delivers an enticing story of mystery, suspense and heart-felt romance with just the right amount of sizzle.
Against the Storm has a fast-paced plot that contained plenty of twists and turns to keep me turning the pages, anxious to find out what will happen next. It was easy for me to succumb to Trace's charm and Maggie's spunk. With an abundance of characters to fall in love with, including a wonderful side story, this is a story that I couldn’t put down and I’m looking forward to reading more from this series and it’s all-star author.
Set up well to read as a stand-alone though previous characters are mentioned.
