“I love her books!”—Linda Lael Miller

New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin raises chills as danger stalks a woman determined to make it in a man’s world . . .

Five weeks ago Carly Drake stood at her grandfather’s grave. Now she’s burying Drake Trucking’s top driver, and the cops have no leads on the hijacking or murder. Faced with bankruptcy, phone threats and the fear of failure, Carly has to team up with the last man she wants to owe—Lincoln Cain.

Cain is magnetic, powerful, controlling—and hiding more than one secret. He promised Carly’s granddad he’d protect her. The old man took a chance on him when he was nothing but a kid with a record, and now he’s the multi-millionaire owner of a rival firm.

But Linc’s money can’t protect Carly from the men who’ll do anything to shut her down, or the secrets behind Drake Trucking. If she won’t sell out, the only way to keep her safe is to keep her close . . . and fight like hell.

About Kat Martin:

Kat Martin is the author of twenty-one Historical and Contemporary Romance novels. She tackles many different aspects of her genre with settings ranging from the rugged West to the Antebellum South, Regency, Georgian, and Medieval England. Not one to shy away from change, she also tackles Contemporary Romantic Suspense novels which involve the paranormal. Some of her titles include Nothing But Velvet, Sweet Vengeance, and Dangerous Passions. These works have won a bevy of awards including a recent Romantic Times Magazine nomination for Best Historical Romance of 1998 for her latest release, Wicked Promise. She is also published in, among others, Germany, Norway, Sweden, China, Russia, and Spain.

Before starting her writing career in 1985, Kat was a real estate broker. During that time, she met her husband, Larry Jay Martin, also a Kensington author. After double majoring in Anthropology and History at the University of California at Santa Barbara, she found herself incredibly interested in the past. In fact, she and Larry often do research in the areas where their books take place. She remarks, "We like to stay in out-of-the-way inns and houses built in times past. It's fun and it gives a wonderful sense of a bygone era."

In May, Kat will release her next Historical Romance, Night Secrets. Following that is an upcoming Zebra release, a Contemporary Romantic Suspense entitled The Silent Rose, which will be out in August. "It's a ghostly tale of romance and intrigue that was based on a real life incident," says Kat. "It's a little bit scary, a whole lot sexy, and hopefully lots of fun to read."

Beyond Danger (Wednesday, January 17, 2018)
Reviewer: Stormy Vixen

Beyond Danger enthralls readers with lots of suspense and a romance that begins with a very uneasy alliance.

First, let me just say that the romance between Beau and Cassidy is one that is a sizzling and heated one that keeps readers guessing throughout the story. Both characters are strong and appealing which draws readers into their story and the romance is a roller coaster ride of turbulence that keeps readers glued to the pages.

Anticipation steadily builds throughout the story, not only in regards to the romance but the danger and excitement that stems from nefarious characters that are dead set on keeping Cassidy and Beau from learning their secrets. The twists and thrills ensure that this fast paced story never has a dull moment and that readers aren’t sure just who the real enemy is nor what he is really up to.

I have read lots of great books by Kat Martin, but this is the first one in the Texas Trilogy that I have read and I have to tell you that I can’t believe that I haven’t read the first one yet, because as usual Kat Martin paints vivid pictures of her stories that make the readers feel as if they are part of the unfolding story. Beyond Danger was a very exciting read that kept me glued to the pages and not only am I going back and reading Beyond Reason, but I can’t wait to read Beyond Control, which is due to be released in May.
