Kat Martin - Interesting Heroes
Prize: Personally Autographed copy of Against the Mark. USA Addresses only! Ends 8/9/2013.
We are thrilled to have Kat Martin her today. She's sharing an article about interesting heroes!
All of us fantasize about over-the-top handsome, hunky men. But for most of us, good looks and even an incredible body just aren’t enough. They might do fine for a one-night stand, but unless they have a lot more to offer, gorgeous men soon become boring.
In AGAINST THE MARK, Ty Brodie is a hunk. Tall, lean, amazingly good-looking and totally ripped. But the thing I found interesting about Ty’s character was the person he was underneath his jovial front.
On the surface, he’s a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky guy, a man that women love, and Ty loves them back. Because of his honesty, Ty has the ability to sleep with a woman and remain friends with her afterward. He has more than his share of ladies phoning him, asking him for dates.
But under it all, Ty is a hard, capable man, an former Special Ops Marine. He knows how to handle himself when things get tough and it’s that combination of hard-edged and sweet that made him such a fun character to write.
You met Ty in AGAINST THE NIGHT with Johnnie Riggs, caught a glimpse of his tough side in AGAINST THE EDGE, when he goes into the Bayou to help Ben Slocum.
It was past time for Ty to have his own story and it took some digging to come up with a woman Ty couldn’t resist. When Haley Warren hires Ty, a private investigator, to help her find out the truth about her father’s death, he’s immediately attracted to the sexy blonde bombshell.
But as they work together, each begins to discover the person inside, two intelligent people, determined and loyal, capable people who slowly find themselves falling in love.
As the days pass, they also find themselves in deeper and deeper peril as clues lead them into the high-stakes world of multi-million dollar art.
I hope you’ll watch for Ty and Haley in AGAINST THE MARK, the ninth book in my AGAINST Series. And that next year, you’ll look for Ty’s cousins, the Brodie brothers, starting with sexy, ruggedly handsome Dylan Brodie in AGAINST THE WILD.
Tell me, who is one of your favorite heros from a romance novel?
Till then happy reading and have a great summer. Kat

The perfect murder is a work of art
In one catastrophic instant, Haley Warren's estranged father was taken from her. She never got the chance to reconnect with him, so now she's doing it the only way she's got left: by proving the explosion that killed him was no accident.
When Tyler Brodie, the provocative and handsome P.I. hired by Haley, discovers that her father was investigating a suspected art theft, he knows his death is no coincidence. After all, tens of millions of dollars worth of stolen art could motivate a thief to go to any lengths-including getting rid of anyone poking around where they don't belong.
As Haley and Ty get closer to the truth, the truth gets ugly: Did Haley's dad know too much...or was he in on the take? And although Ty's a consummate professional, he's having trouble focusing on the facts of the case, and not the figure of his gorgeous client. The two are determined to get to the bottom of the case, even if it means they die trying.
