Against the Wild
by Kat Martin
Alaska. Where the men are as bold and untamed as America's last wilderness.
It's been three years since Lane Bishop tragically lost her fiancé, and she's finally ready to risk her heart on someone else. The hot look in Dylan Brodie's eyes says he's going to be that man.
But when Lane flies to the remote 1930's fishing lodge to help him renovate, she discovers a little girl who won't speak, eerie legends and strange sounds in the night. And when she investigates the history of the lodge, she uncovers a legacy of injustice and murder.
As danger stalks his daughter and the woman he is coming to love, Dylan must risk everything to uncover the shocking truth.

A Reader's Opinion
Rough, tough, and handsome are three ingredients for a great hero, and Dylan Brodie is such a man, and a chivalrous one at that. I enjoyed getting to know the first of the Brodie brothers in this new series. I loved the Alaska setting, and of course the nicely spun suspense and murder. The author did a nice job delivering in both the action and excitement departments. Lane is a fitting match for Dylan, and her gradual acceptance of him and Alaska felt natural.
The romance was more sex than romance in the first 3/4 of the book. Those can sometimes go hand in hand, but in this case, it was just sex. I didn't feel the thrill of their relationship until the end of the book, but I'm glad it ended on a more romantic note.
There was plenty of good stuff to enjoy in Against the Wild and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a good romantic suspense set in the wilds of Alaska. One of my favorite characters ended up being Nick, Dylan's brother. Another tough and handsome guy who will no doubt delight readers when he get's his own story.
