    1. Where to start The another Harlequin suspense novel I read recently Shades of Desire set the bar of expectations pretty low for me especially in terms of characterisations, and this one passed the test with flying colours Both Jake and Sage I had to check their names from the blurb and I only finished reading this book a couple of hours ago stayed consistent to their original characterisations Whatever they learned during this story that would be to love and cherish each other despite the risks [...]

    3. Against the Sun is the sixth novel in the Raines of Wind Canyon series by Kat Martin These are romantic suspense novels which deal with ex military men and the woman who capture their hearts Each is designed to be read as a standalone As always this reader prefers to read them in order I like to get a sense of all the players and enjoy knowing the back history Against the Sun held my attention from page one and I was swept away In this novel we finally get Jack Cantrell s story He is a former sp [...]

    4. I think I need to quit reading romance novels, because the men in these books are just too muchO MUCH, people.In this case, we have Jake Cantrell seriously the name alone, right , an ex Marine now working in a sort of private investigations protection capacity He is all man Tall, big yes, BIG in exactly That Way Growly and manly and virile And HOT.He has been assigned to protect Sage Dumont is it wrong that every time I saw her name, I pictured a Thanksgiving turkey, with its crisp skin covered [...]

Can you ever mix business with pleasure successfully Sage Dumont learned the oil business from the bottom floor up and earned her position She is determined to close the biggest deal ever for the family business and nothing will stop this Texas family from moving into the Middle East oil territory No amount of threats, bad press, or a hot bodyguard is going to distract her Wait Jake Cantrell is my bodyguard, not my personal dream of a man right The one thing Jake knows is how to do security deta [...]

    6. Probably my first mistake was not recognizing this as a romance novel I thought I d try a thriller written by a womanbut all this book did was annoy my usually latent feminist side Apparently what women readers want is for a huge man the book can t stop about how big the hero is to come and lead us around He is constantly putting his large hand on the small of the heroine s back and directing her places, which fills her with relief Amidst ordering her food for her which she also finds comforting [...]

    7. My thoughts and feelings while reading 0.0% Going to start this tonight Wish me luck Im always nervous and reluctant to start one of these books 3.0% He noticed she was wearing a flashy diamond engagement ring Ohh Now I m slightly confused but very intrigued I hoped Jake got a book since we met him in Dev s book D8.0% She blew out a breath What did it matter It was only dinner Besides, she had to admit there was a tiny part of her that liked when a man took charge Me too D I m really curious as [...]

    8. I always liked Jake from the very beginning of this series He s a hot tall drink of water who also happens to be an expert sniper Sage comes along and blows his closed heart wide open Great characters and awesome stories to this series.

    9. Daniella s review posted on Guilty PleasuresIt was a pleasure to review, Against The Sun The Raines of Wind Canyon by Kat Martin This is a book from The AGAINST Series and can stand alone without having to read another book in the series before since Kat doesn t just throw names from other books without a small description so the reader isn t lost After you read this book though, you will want to read the rest of the series to learn about the fascinating people of the Atlas Security Firm Not onl [...]

    10. A little better than the last book in the series, but not quite as good as the first book in the second trilogy of this series.Series Note Sixth book in the Raines of Wind Canyon series, and third book in the second trilogy of the series I don t think you have to have read the other books first They stand pretty well on their own.Summary Sage Dumont, one of the vice presidents of her family s Marine Drilling corporation, is about to close on a huge deal to buy some used drilling equipment from S [...]

    12. These books are continuously driving me insane I am constantly tapping my foot as I sit waiting, NOT patiently, for the next book to come out They re like a drug you can t get enough of, and each one is a new hit not that I would know but I m sure it s similar In this novel of Martin s, Jake Cantrell is his usual badass former Marine self, but he is making the effort to become a part of the community and his friends lives again Sage Dumont finally has the chance to prove herself to her grandfath [...]

    13. I really love the Against series What is not to love about macho hunks saving ladies in distress This is Jake and Sage s story There s a Your Highness a Saudi prince, a drug deal, a high stakes business deal, a runaway daughter, a devious co worker and much to keep your interest all the way through As much as I love these books, they are starting to have a formula feel, but they have edge of the seat suspense and hot sex Sage was a bit of a disappointment in that she was really needy, not very [...]

    14. Against the Sun is titillating romantic trash, masquerading as a suspense novel Its narrative is entirely predictable, without a single twist or turn that couldn t be readily anticipated I elected reluctantly to read the entire book for no other reason than to be fair in my review I wouldn t recommend this book to anyone My only solace is that this novel is part of the series The Raines of Wind Canyon, so I know enough to avoid the rest of the collection.

    15. Five stars Good enjoyable readI started this series out of order and it captured me Real men not macho but masculine and kind All of the characters are interesting and the suspense and surprise outcomes amazing

    16. Jake Cantrell is introduced as another member of the special forces team As a bodyguard everything else he protects Sage from herself mostly Good suspense Good romance.

    17. Good book Jake has been hired by Sage s grandfather to be her bodyguard while she is participating in negotiations with a Saudi prince Sage isn t at all happy about it and makes her feelings clear to Jake He isn t too thrilled with her either, but an assignment is an assignment.Jake and Sage get off to a rough start Sage doesn t think she needs protection or help from Jake He didn t make the best first impression when he mistook her for the receptionist and she isn t going to forget it Sage has [...]

    18. This digital review copy was supplied to me free by Harlequin through Netgalley The review constitutes my own thoughts on the book.Kat Martin provides the reader with another instalment in the Raines of Wind Canyon series This one like its predecessors is full of suspense and passion but I felt it did drag a little in the middle with a lot of repetitive I want you but you re unavailable material.The book has some great characters you can really get invested in I was rooting for Jake from the beg [...]

    19. This is the 6th book in the series The first 3 were about the Raines Brothers This last set have revolved around ex military men who who now work for a private investigator firm Sage Dumont works for her grandfather in Houston at Marine Drilling International She has worked hard to work her way up in the company based on her job performance and not her last name She thinks she has the perfect job and is engaged to the perfect man She manages to land a deal to negotiate buying a drilling platform [...]

    21. Jake Cantrell was big, really big, and at six foot five and two hundred thirty pounds most people gave him a wide berth when his dad died he worked his tale off helping his mom on their Iowa farm The minute she married her old flame, the guy she didn t choose Jake knew he needed to get away as he looked so much like his dad that he d have problems, He enlisted in the Marines and eventually found his niche as a sharp shooter, when he got out he hooked up with Trace Rawlins, an ex ranger and worke [...]

    22. Sage Dumont needs to close a big deal to win her grandfather s approval and maybe a leadership role in the family oil company All she needs to do is convince a visiting Saudi sheik to sell her some used oil pipe and a drilling platform and she s golden.A thorn in her side however may prove to be the bodyguard her grandfather hired, expecting the proposed deal may cause trouble Jake Cantrell is everything Sage doesn t like in a guy he s super alpha, big and probably would fall asleep at the opera [...]

    23. Against the Sun by Kat Martin, For me it was okay Ms Martin comes up with some fairly decent plots and the writing and editing has continued to improve since her early books Sage Dumont is a strong, smart woman that works as a VP in her family s oil company but of course when she meets Jake she turns into a whimpering, breathless female One thing that annoys me is that it happens from the very first meeting They become breathless and hot and hard and you get it, from their first meeting There s [...]

    24. It was a great book ,i really enjoyed reading about Jake Cantrell.I was so happy when i found out that Jake got his own book ,he s such a cool and interesting character ,i really liked where they took his story ,when he first meets Sage that was so great ,they really have some hot and steamy scenes and the chemistry between the two of them was so explosive ,they make a great couple.Sage is a great character who has a lot of faults ,i mean she was gonna marry a man just because she wanted to get [...]

    25. The story is solid with multiple and cohesive plot lines but there was nothing new about everything While i was interested in knowing the mystery and story about the sheiks and the relationship between Jake and Sage i felt like i had to drag my eyes to keep on reading instead of falling asleep There were too many monologues being written from both jake and sage sides that i skipped During the first few chapters I rolled my eyes every time Jake and sage were amazed with each other And in real lif [...]

    26. After reading Against the Wild, I decided to go back and start at the beginning, only to find that there must be something before this one that tells Trace and Maggie s story At any rate, I enjoyed Jake and Sage s story, although the Alaskan setting in Against the Wild was vastly interesting than the Houston setting in this one The Saudi element I assume Ms Martin did the great research for it that she did for hiking in Alaska was an eye opener I knew some of the stuff about Muslims, but a lot [...]

    27. Read this before Against the Law and it wasn t any better I could see absolutely no reason for the interest between the leads The idea that the negotiations with a middle eastern minor royalty would be handled only by a woman even if she is a senior vice president and the owner s granddaughter is strange That an oil company would know so little about dealing with middle easterners, and that they would wait until a few days before the in person meetings to learn basic stuff like how to address th [...]

    28. Sage Dumont, heiress and executive of a major Houston oil firm, is about to negotiate a major deal for piping and other offshore equipment with a Saudi shiek Much to Sage s chagrin, her grandfather hires as her bodyguard Jake Cantrell, former Marine special forces As the story leaks of the impending arrival of the sheik and his family, Jake discovers very sinister goings on starting from various protests and picketing to dire issues which involve the sheik s son and entourage.It took me about 1 [...]
