Sarah Allen had to leave LA and she had to do it fast. She packed up what she could and drove away with her daughter Holly. Sarah moved back to Wyoming to the only place she knew would be safe but trouble will be following her and she will have nowhere to turn until Jackson Raines offers to help them.
Jackson Raines saw Sarah and after getting over his hurt feelings from years ago he saw that she was running from her past. He wanted to help her and her daughter which meant staying close to them and protecting them from the men who were demanding information from Sarah.
Against the Wind is the first book to Kat Martin’s series Raines of Wind Canyon. I had already read one of the books just to see how the series sounded. It was a story that got me hooked. I wanted to start reading the rest of the series right away but I had a stack of books on my dresser that I needed to read first and I will say the first book was worth the wait. This book once again gives us suspense, romance, some action and a heartwarming story with rugged men. I instantly liked Jackson and Sarah as the story was being told. I liked that Sarah was a fighter and she was not the stuck up girl you thought her to be. Jackson is a thoughtful cowboy and just wants a chance with the girl he could never stopping thinking about. They have their moment and it gets sweet as they will be accompanied by Sarah’s daughter Holly.
There is a little twist with who killed Andrew and I figured out the murderer and the motive pretty quickly but it was still interesting to read and let the story unfold. Now the bad guys were the thugs that wanted the disk drive but personally the cop Mercer seemed like a villain as well.
The second book will be focusing in on Gabe. I liked that Martin focused in on three brothers and branched more from the people who are in the town of Wyoming. I am looking forward to finding out what will come next for Gabe Raines and Dev Raines.
