Fourth go round in The Raines of Wind Canyon series, best selling author Kat Martin debuts Against the Storm. The first three books were about the Raines brothers, this outing branches out with their friend Trace Rawlins. I loved the three previous chapters of the series, but this time out, I found the combination of cowboy Trace and sophisticated Maggie kind of lacking. The story line is choppy and the chemistry forced. The subplot romance between Maggie’s sister and Trace’s other client was more involving for me. The stalker is just a sideline for Trace and Maggie to hook up. Perhaps Kat Martin’s next venture in the series will pick up the slack this one left.
