For me, Alaska is the most romantic place on earth, in a tough, challenging way. I wanted to write about the men who live there, give them the ultimate adventure and reward them with the love of their lives. (less)

"Would you like to tell me about it?" James offered as soon as his friend was out of earshot.
Mandy looked out the window, shamefaced. "I'd really rather not discuss it, if you don't mind."
"You know, even if he is a friend, I'd be happy to black his eye if-"

Kat Martin, Magnificent Passage

“Precisely who are you,Captain Sharpe?"
He looked into that beautiful, treacherous face and a sweep of lust rushed through him. "You want to know who I am? Well, I am the devil incarnate and you,my sweet, are about to pay the devil's due.”
Kat Martin, The Devil's Necklace

“I didn't think you would be able to find me.I was so frightened..."
He took hold of her hand, brought it to his lips. "I would have looked forever if I'd had to.”
