Summer Adventure


Every summer my husband and I try to have some kind of adventure.  Not the hearty kind we used to undertake--like riding horseback into the high Sierras or tent camping for a week in Montana.  But whatever we choose, summer is great time for a getaway. 
This year, we’re driving from our home in Montana to the Western Writers of America conference in Kansas City, Missouri.  We’ll take the back roads, meander two-lane highways that wind through six different states. 
Along the way we hope to visit old writer friends, Kathleen and Michael Gear--authors of the PEOPLE series that takes place 10,000 years ago.  They live on a buffalo ranch in Wyoming. 
From there, we’ll head for the Dakotas, spend a little time in Rapid City, a great old West town.  Lots of historic buildings and fun art galleries.
Staying off the beaten path, you can find all sorts of intriguing bits of history.  Sioux City sits right on the Missouri, plenty of steamboat lore, and you can learn about Louis and Clark in Omaha.  If you’ve never done a cross country road trip, it’s really a worthwhile adventure.
Speaking of highway adventures, BEYOND REASON travels the roadways of Texas.  It’s the story of Carly Drake, a young woman who inherits her grandfather’s trucking firm and all the problem that go with it--including murder. 
Carly’s biggest problem, however, turns out to be six foot-five-inches of solid male muscle--handsome, mega-rich, powerful and controlling, Lincoln Cain.
It’s high action all the way and of course plenty of hot romance.  I hope you’ll watch for BEYOND REASON and that you enjoy it.    
So...what’s your favorite adventure?  Love to hear about it.  Have a great summer and happy reading!  Kat

“Something happened that changed things between us.  What was it?”

She’s determined to be successful--no matter
who tries to stop her

Someone is willing to kill for control of Drake Trucking, a well-respected firm now run by a woman named Carly Drake.  Big money is involved.  And very big danger.
Multi-millionaire Lincoln Cain is determined to keep the promise he made her grandfather, the man who helped him change his life after he got out of prison.  Cain has vowed to protect Carly, no matter what it takes.
Unfortunately, the only way to keep her safe is to keep her close--and fight like crazy.

Beyond Reason
By Kat Martin

The helicopter flight back was quick and uneventful.  By the time they reached the ranch house and she made her way into the kitchen, her heart hurt and despair had her mouth so dry she could barely speak. 
As if he had some kind of special Carly radar, Linc followed her and just stood watching. 
“What happened today?” he asked, the unnatural calmness in his tone putting her on alert. 
He was amazingly perceptive.  She thought about lying, but it wasn’t worth the effort. 
“Sophia happened.  She reminded me of the way things really are.”
“Sophia Aiello?”  He frowned.  “What does Sophia have to do with anything?”
“She came to see you.  You didn’t have time for her, but I’m sure she’ll forgive you.”
“I’ve never slept with Sophia.”
“You have a date with her next week.  Were you going to tell me the truth or make something up?”
A knot of anger surfaced in his jaw.  “It’s just a PR stunt to raise money.  I have no interest in a woman like that.”
She didn’t believe him.  She wished she’d never met him.  
“I want to go home.  I’ll sleep in one of the other bedrooms tonight, but tomorrow I’m going home.”
His jaw went harder.  “You’re not leaving.  I’m not letting you put yourself in that kind of danger.”
“You can’t tell me what to do.”
“You don’t think so?  I’ll tell you this--I’m not letting some spoiled, self-absorbed female I don’t give a damn about ruin what’s happening between us.”
Her head came up.  “Nothing’s happening.  It’s just sex.”
“Is it?”  He stalked toward her, caught her shoulders.  He was mad, furious.  She didn’t understand why he was so angry. 
“I don’t know where this is going.  But if Sophia upset you that badly, I mean more to you than just sex.  We’re going to see where this leads.  We’re not going to let other people decide the outcome.”
He fisted a hand in her hair to hold her in place and his mouth crushed down over hers.  She pressed her hands against his powerful chest and told herself to stop him, that he was just saying the words every woman wanted to hear.
But what if she was wrong?  What if Linc was the one man who was exactly what he seemed?  She wanted to believe it so badly.
Carly struggled against him, but the heat was too much, the yearning too strong.  She kissed him back with all the need she felt for him, all the hunger.  She whimpered when Linc broke away.
“Another thing you should know.  I’m not above using sex to get what I want.  Since I know how much you like sex with me, I’m going to remind you exactly why you decided to stay with me in the first place.”
When Linc kissed her again, Carly closed her eyes and let the storm of passion roll over her.

I love taking trips with my husband too, not that we take that many.

Good luck with your new release. I wish you many sales.

Your trip sounds wonderful, and so does your new story. On a river cruise last year I met a couple from Albuquerque who had met you and your husband on another river cruise.
