Lexi: BOSS, Inc., Against Series, The Brodies of Alaska. Sound familiar, don’t they? Well, our guest today can now add Maximum Security to that list! Yes, we have a new Kat Martin series and she’s here today to introduce it to us! Welcome, Kat!
Thanks for having me, Lexi!
Lexi: Your name is synonymous with great Romantic Suspense reads. Which is why we’re extremely excited about the Maximum Security series! How many books are planned and, from the series name, we are hoping they’re all connected to Chase’s business, Maximum Security?
Four new books in the series, all set around Maximum Security in Dallas, Texas The three Garrett brothers and some of the guys who work there. You’ll meet Brandon Garrett in this book, as well as Hawk Maddox. Chase’s middle brother, Reese, is CEO of Garrett Enterprises. His story comes last. The series also includes four novellas connected in some way to the novels. I’m really excited about how the books are coming along!
Lexi: Chase is the hero in THE CONSPIRACY and trouble isn’t anything he can’t handle. Bodyguards, detectives, bounty hunters, and drug lords. There’s so much going on! You must’ve been cackling with glee as you layered in the situations and characters. Do you have a favorite secondary character, someone that Chase interacts with or someone on the wrong side of the law that you had fun writing?
I got to meet Chase’s brother, Brandon, for the first time. He is such a sexy hunk, former spec ops soldier, and private detective. I was looking forward to writing his story, which I am currently in the middle of. Considering writing a novella about Killian Dawson. Kill was a really intriguing character, the ultimate macho man. It might be fun to try to find a match up for him. Have to wait and see...
Lexi: Aside from the intense suspense, you have the person that dragged Chase into this mess, Harper Winston. She crushed on Chase, her older brother’s friend, a long time ago, but she’s strong and determined to find her missing brother even though it means she has to go to Chase for help. Which characteristic of Harper’s does Chase find most attractive?
I think her loyalty. She loves her brother and sticks by him no matter what anyone believes about him, not even Chase. He is also impressed by her intelligence and sheer grit. As half owner of a clothing company and occasional dress designer, she is definitely out of her element in the jungles of Colombia.
Lexi: THE CONSPIRACY sounds perfect, heavy on the suspense with the right amount of romance to carry it to the end. Cheers to the start of your new series!
Thanks, Lexi! I am really excited to get the series launched. Hoping readers love Chase and Harper as much as I do.
