Maximum Security series by Kat Martin
Author Kat Martin writes the “Maximum Security” series of romantic suspense novels.

Maximum Security is a security firm, around which dangerous and deadly cases are investigated and people fall in love. The novels stand alone and feature different lead characters.

“The Conspiracy” is the first novel in the “Maximum Security” series and was released in 2019. Raising the passion and tension when family ambition turns lethal.

Harper Winston’s brother vanished. Michael, pursuing his dreams of sailing the Caribbean, Michael’s not responded to emails or texts in days now. When even the Coast Guard is unable to find him, she’s forced to take some desperate measures. This means going to Chase Garrett, once her brother’s best friend, now the only guy that she’s able to trust. At least that’s what she hopes for, anyway.

Chase, as the successful owner of Maximum Security, has learned how to trust his gut better. He knows her dad’s mixed up in a deadly business, and suspects that there is more to Michael’s going missing than is meeting the eye. Getting mixed up again with the Winstons goes against everything that he stands for, but old loyalties do die hard. While the case continues drawing him closer to Harper and even deeper into the snarled Winston crime family, he’s forced to put it all on the line to keep her safe, as well as both of them alive.

Kat keeps the twists and turns coming in the spirited and sensuous first Maximum Security novel of romantic thrillers. This one’s sure to make it tough to wait for the next novel in this tantalizing series about bodyguards, detectives, and bounty hunters.

“The Deception” is the second novel in the “Maximum Security” series and was released in 2019. When missing becomes murdered, a woman’s quest to find answers is going to take her to a place that she never wanted to go.

Kate Gallagher has spent two years looking for her sister, and is devastated when she is called out to the morgue in order to identify Chrissy’s body, the runaway teenager that was the victim of this brutal attack. Grief and guilt send her into this tailspin. She failed Chrissy in the past, but won’t do that again. Even if finding her sister’s murderer means following this deadly bounty hunter into darkness’ heart, which paces both of their lives in danger.

Working at Maximum Security has taken Jason Maddox down some pretty dangerous paths, however never for a client that he is so drawn to, or for such a monstrous case. While the clues keep leading him deeper in the city’s underbelly, connections to human trafficking draw them increasingly closer to peril, however even Jase’s warnings cannot convince her to walk away. While this deadly operation puts a target on both of their backs, they will have to figure out what matters the most. The truth. Or their lives.

Fans of romantic suspense novels will not be able to put this book down until they’ve reached the final page.

“The Ultimate Betrayal” is the third novel in the “Maximum Security” series and was released in 2020. In order to prove her dad’s innocence, she will have to turn a murderer’s insights upon herself.

When the dad of Jessie Kegan, a journalist, is accused of murder, she has no doubt that the man she’s been looking up to her whole life is innocent. Worse yet, before Colonel Kegan can even stand trial, he is discovered dead of a heart attack, however Jessie knows that it was murder. While forcing down her grief, she is bound and determined to use her resources and investigative abilities to clear her dad’s good name. However pursuing the truth means that she will soon find herself in a murderer’s crosshairs that wants the truth to remain buried along with her dad.

Keeping Jessie Kegan is a job that Brandon Garrett (a bodyguard) just cannot refuse. Jessie’s not just some client at Maximum Security, she is also the sister of Danny, his best friend, that was killed in Afghanistan. With some dangerous forces gunning for Jessie from each and every angle, protecting her is going to mean keeping her close and Bran finds that their mutual attraction is growing, even though being Danny’s sister puts Jessie rather out of bounds.

Bran and Jessie, as their backs are against the wall, are going to have to risk everything in order to expose her dad’s killer, before his legacy can die with his daughter.

With plenty of plot twists and turns, suspense, and the sort of fast paced love story that’ll keep you on your toes, it is just the sort of summer escape that you’ve been craving.

“The Perfect Murder” is the fourth novel in the “Maximum Security” series and was released in 2021. Reese Garret, the oldest of the three wealthy Garrett brothers, is caught up in the middle of this major purchase for Garrett Resources, his multi-million dollar gas and oil company. The Poseidon offshore drilling platform venture is going to greatly enhance the value of the company.

However when Reese is on a trip to see a rig, his helicopter crashes and leaves him hospitalized and two guys dead. It is revealed that the chopper was sabotaged, and Reese’s determined to learn who was behind this crash, and whether or not he was the intended target or not. Then when Kenzie, his lover, gets accused of her former husband’s murder, a guy with this vested interest in the Poseidon deal, clues begin pointing to this connection which puts Kenzie, Reese, and her young son in a killer’s sights.

From the Louisiana bayous to the Texas heat, Reese and all of his brothers have to track the truth down before the body count can rise any higher.

Kat Martin is a fast gun when it comes to her storytelling, and it’s tough not to absolutely love this novel and everything that she writes. This is her most thrilling book in the series to date. Perfect for fans of Linda Howard, Sandra Brown, and Julie Garwood.
