AGAINST THE MARK
Martin’s Raines of Wind Canyon series has hit the bull’s-eye again with a first-class action adventure, a sinfully sexy romance and characters that just keep getting better. This latest installment in the series is pitch-perfect, gliding through the air for a three-point, walk-away landing.
When a dear friend asks Tyler Brodie to look into the death of Haley Warren’s estranged father, the hunky detective isn’t sure what he wants more: to find the right answers, or to land the stunningly beautiful Haley in his bed. Haley’s stepmother swears that her father was killed for getting too close to the resolution of an ongoing case and she enlists Haley’s aid in finding the answers. They want Ty to prove that the explosion that killed him was no accident. Soon, Ty has his hands full with clues, Haley’s determination to be in on the investigation and his own fears for her safety.
