Publisher's Summary

ALASKA
In America's last wilderness there are no limits to what a man can do.

For detective Nick Brodie, that means keeping the perps off the streets of Anchorage 24/7. Nick has never backed down from danger, but after the horrors he's seen, he's definitely in need of a break.

Samantha Hollis never thought she'd meet anyone like Nick, especially in a place like Las Vegas. But after one reckless, passionate night, she discovers the charismatic stranger is everything she wants in a man. But can he ever be anything more than a one-night stand?

When Nick invites her to Alaska, Samantha decides to find out, never guessing the depths she'll discover in him or the tangle of murder, kidnapping, and danger about to engulf them both...

This is the story that got me hooked on Brodies

I read this one (out of order) and it was so good, I made a commitment to the series. GREAT HERO! Strong heroine who decided what she would do in her life taking into account how her actions would impact others.

mixed feelings on this one

good mystery book...but too much sex for my taste..it otherwise was a good storyline with lots of intrigue and investigation that had lots of twists and heartstopping points..you wonder if the bad guys will win and kill the women or if it is possible someone will rescue them.

So boring

I skipped so many chapters. I fell asleep listening many times. It was also annoying. I kept repeating the obnoxious sexist phrases out loud to my daughter just so we could both roll our eyes together. The H is an ass. The h was pretty much lacking any personality at all. Won’t be bothering with this author again.

Gun Parlor

That's what you get when an ex-cop meets a pup parlor Miss. Nick Brodie has just quit the police force in Alaska and gone to Las Vegas for a little down time before looking for a new job, when he steps in a saves Samantha from a pushy drunk in a hotel hallway.
With instant chemistry, they enjoy the weekend together among the excitement of the Las Vegas strip, each going their separate ways after the weekend. That isn't the end though, to their sexy weekend.
There are many surprises in store for them in the coming weeks including a trip to Alaska for Sam with gunfire and mayhem and the Russian Mob.
I loved it. The sexy scene in Las Vegas was so hot and sigh worthy. Can't wait to read another of Kat Martin's books.

Wrong description for against the sky

They have a total different book described about this book. The book Against the Sky is about Nick Brodie and Samantha the description on aubible says it's about Ian Brodie and Meriwether Jones. So before you download you might want to wait until you know what the name is for the description of Ian Brodie and Meriwether Jones. To read what Against the sky is about you can go to Amazon and read it. I really wanted to listen to Ian Brodie's story.
